Lindell
Oleksiak
Pysyk
Robertson

Hopefully all are false positives.
Harley doesn't have covid-19, he had to quarantine coming from the World Juniors.

Explain?

Harley played in the WCJ as if he had COVID.

False positive tests have went on for months, one day a person tests positive, next day negative etc. NFL has had the same situation, but the NHL isn't giving out the info. So hopefully that's what this situation is.

If they actually do have covid-19, then it can be very serious.

Lots of Finns on that list. Helsinki must be a *Dang ol'* viral cesspool. COVID just dripping off every ceiling over there.

All our eggs in the Khudobin COVID basket isn’t too reassuring. I was already worried.

It's especially shocking because social distancing is what they do from birth.

Is COVID serious? Hadn’t heard.

Srsly, tho, false negatives were - and still are - the bigger concern. Having one of each result isn’t a false positive.

I had to turn off Yousuf's Twitter notifications. Too much football crap.

Khudobin got it, he said that it was a pain in the ass to walk up the stairs and that his mashed potatoes didn't taste mashed potatoes at all.

Edit: yeah... didn't notice the NHL post before writing that.

I hope he’s fully over it since he’s going to be asked to play his heaviest workload of his career. There are plenty of other athletes who have had it who have had performance issues from it.

Don’t think the Stars are letting media in to watch practice because of covid. The only source for anything now comes from Stars employees.

If you like offense, these early season games are seeing some huge goal totals. The lack of preseason and training camp seems to have given offenses the advantage. The Avs are beating the Blues 8-0 right now. Three of the other four games saw a team get to 5. Thursday night saw six different games reach at least seven total goals scored.

Let’s see how the Stars handle this offensive pace by trying to win every game 1-0.
