Hopefully he will be ok, it's serious but not nearly as ZOMG as the corporate controlled media is making it out to be. Hopefully he will get better and cleared soon!

He did look a little sluggish the last couple of games.

If you added a laugh track, the Isles could make for a great comedy.

Let the descend begin. Already amongst tops in the league to man games lost.

Isles just don't have the depth to afford cumulative injuries.

At least it gives some of the press box junkies one last chance.

****, now Schremp is probably playing.

I was wondering why Kyle wasn't playing like himself the last few games, this explains why.

To be honest, the media has this spot on.

I am a Registered Nurse and also in the midst of my battle with the Flu. I've had it for about four days now. The Flu Bug this season, just the seasonal, is exceptionally nasty and deceptive. I don't have the N/V or the GI symptoms and still struggeling to keep fluids in.

Whatever you take in just comes right back out. It is hard as hell to maintain an adequate fluid volume and control the fever that comes with it. My Temp bottoms out at 99.8 just from the dehydration alone.

It is very difficult to balance the rest you need with the intake you need. I imagine a lot of folks are gonna need some form of fluid replacement via IV. Personally for me I should have opted for it.

I heard he didn't take the trip to Washington. Does this mean he's not there for the entire road trip?

According to Botta the trip will be split into 2 parts because of a 3 day break in the middle of it following the game in Boston.

But there's no excuses for H1N1 - it's going to rip through all teams. This is not just an Islander problem.

Its nasty no doubt, just like the "regular" flu. It is not the hidden pork killer the media makes it out to be. If there is a death due to swine flu you hear about it on every channel. What about all the "regular" flu deaths over the past few years? Didnt hear a think because it didnt have a catchy name as a hook. Nearly all the deaths associated with the swine flu are among the same demographics that die from the regular flu, but simply get over reported.

If you run through the math and extrapolate a bit, the regular flu will kill 24 times as many people as Swine Flu. So he's not in any great danger per se, losing his presence on the ice is going to be the greatest hit.

Figures our best player would get this.

This flu hits Kyle's age hard and I have this nightmare that it will turn bad. My father was just laughing at the fact that this would only happen to the Islanders. Why are we stuck in this cycle?

True! Have watched the flu going through my 2 "local" teams - Oilers and Canucks - and it seems to be 2 or 3 games out and then another 2 or 3 games playing but without any energy. It's about 2 weeks before the players are really contributing again.

I think you may be conflating what the media is doing with what H1N1 actually is and does. I'm not going to defend the media for all that they do and a lot of the H1N1 is based on projections. Earlier finding found those projection to be off until recently.

I just attended a symposium on H1N1 recently to get my credits for when I have to reup my license. What differentiates H1N1 from the seasonal flu is how quickly it advances to sepsis, resp failure, pneumonia etc. Back in September and October the outbreak was not that bad and those that needed hospitalization/ICU didn't have an issue cause the ICUs had space.

The problem is when H1N1 goes more widespread (which it is predicted in the winter months) and the ICUs are filled up. Primarly it is the respirtory aspect of the disease for children (their airways are narrower and have more sever resp complications) and the elderly (Chest wall is stiffer and have a harder time expectorating. Not to mention this population has it's share of emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma).

If you don't fit into those age groups you are fine.

And the numbers of people dying from it in those age groups are actually now starting to rise.

Really? I haven't met anyone that has died from swine flu. This is supposed to be 1919 all over again....

I got my H1N1 shot yesterday. No kind of flu is pleasant. I had the real flu once, and it was awful. My skin hurt.

i was nervous about Tavares getting it. When weight was diagnosed with it JT had been living with him which scared me, and im sure him and okposo are pretty friendly so they might go out to eat carpool to practice, whatever point is they would be in tight quarters together and JT would be exposed to it.
