    Oh no! Healthy guys might catch a disease with an over 99 percent survival rate! What will we ever do without a bunch of nancies crying over what other people do? Ovi doesn’t need to learn anything. He’s living life. If people want to be pathetic and hide, they’re welcome to. Let everyone else live life and not be afraid of a virus with a more than 99 percent survival rate. Pathetic.

      The virus also damages lungs to a much greater percentage. No, they may not die, but it could end their careers. They can also act as spreaders to older, more at risk people. Don’t be an idiot.

        These guys get tested regularly. They and breath on each other and spew their saliva on each other while playing or sitting on the bench. They huff and puff together in a confined room after each period and skate. Tell me genius, what people are they hanging around to get the virus and name these “old people” they are hanging around. You lost all credibility when you immediately start calling other people names.

          You are only looking at it one way. You wear a mask so you minimize exposure to people around you, not for breathing in virus dumbass. They could get others sick. That’s why everyone that doesn’t wear a mask is being selfish and doesn’t give a shit about getting others sick.

          • Puckman says:

            This isn’t about me and you or anyone else. It’s about 4 professional teammates who hung out together in a hotel room without their masks. They don’t wear a mask while playing, practicing or in a “confined” locker room after periods or skates. Four hockey players who are constantly getting tested. Your generalization does not apply to everyone. By the way, you’re a class act; idiot, dumbass and shit. 👌

    Yes i’am sure a guy that makes $10,000,000.00 a season is “Really” going to learn a lot !

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      If they miss a week or more because of this, they will learn real quick. Fans aren’t going to put up with too many lineups with AHL players on the top line.

      • Diane Doyle says:

        We won’t have AHLers on the top line but certainly on the third line. Depth will be nonexistent. And Buffalo will have a great chance of winning on both Friday and Sunday. Or at least better than normal.

    What a joke. They spend so much time together on ice and in the locker room without masks, but suddenly their time together in private is unacceptable? Ovis response is great though.
