Groundhog Day positive is puzzling this yr. So when the key minister emerges from his burrow at Rideau Cottage, if he sees his shadow, does it imply six a lot more months of nearly no vaccines? Just asking yourself.

Bonus LETTER — On-line ONLY

So the hottest rumour circling the Calgary Flames is that Sam Bennett would like a change of surroundings. Instantly all the armchair quarterbacks, sure that features all sports reporters in the Sunlight and Herald, the vacuous conversing heads at Sportsnet, with the exception of Derek Wills and Peter Loubardias, and Sportsnet reporter that we all enjoy to despise, Eric Francis, will be speculating where Bennett will finish up, and a lot more importantly, why he wants out of Calgary. I believe I can give you an solution to equally, it is simply because the identical reporters and conversing heads have forced him to want this. Why you talk to, mainly because of their frequent and unwarranted criticisim of Bennett’s enjoy during the typical year vs. the playoffs. He is a difficult-nosed participant who has a hell of a scoring contact. Rather of frequently using him in excess of his absence of scoring, why really do not you just allow him play his match? Try seeing his complete activity, not just his scoring! He is a crew player in the real sense of the term, not only with his on-ice enjoy but his do the job in the group. It will be a sad working day for Calgary and the Flames if Sam Bennett is traded or lost to the Seattle Kraken in the growth draft. Very good luck to you, Sam, wherever you finish up.
(It’s a distraction this team does not have to have.)
