They always say "flu" when a player is sick but when I hear Kovy lost something like 5 lbs and couldnt eat anything, I rather think that virus could be gastric..

Gotta love people talking out of their ***. Last year's vaccine was really bad but this year has been one of the best concerning accuracy. As far as flu vaccines are concerned, I'm an insider. So go spill your random facts elsewhere.

Oh yeah? Josh Gorges was the captain of the Kelowna Rockets. How's that for insider facts?

As an insider, I'm sure you have access to these:

I seem to recall around December or so that there were news reports saying how one of the strains chosen was off quite a bit.

The Habs did get flu shots. One of the commentators on either CBC or TSN said it last week. BTW, the whole league is suffering from it. Some teams have had a hard time dressing a full line-up.

On top of that. Every time a player gets the flu, the team quarantines them from the rest of the team. The Habs learned their lesson from 2 years ago.

Just cause a guy gets the flu doesn't mean the team doesn't take preventative measures. If they have kids...chances are they will get the flu and give it to someone else.

A flu is usually only contagious in the first few days...usually when you don't know you have it yet.
