New public health orders being announced today. Will be a two-phase approach, with new orders on March 5 and then again on March 26.
Household restrictions:

Option 1: two designated visitors

Option 2: One entire designated household.

Outdoor public/private gatherings up to 10
Places of worship capacity moves up 25% or 100 people. whichever is lower.
Capacity for retail, restaurants capacity up to 50%.
Myriad indoor facilities, including rinks, can open. Requirement for individual or group classes has been removed.
These orders come into effect March 5-March 25.
Roussin warning that loosened restrictions isn't a license to let our guards down. Still people in ICU, still VOCs.
VLTS are back in licensed places, but casinos still shuttered. Same with theatres, bingo halls and other large indoor event centres.
Pallister announcing a third bridge grant extension. "Bridge into Spring Grant."
For gym-goers:

gym, fitness centre and pool users must continue to wear a mask while working out and in all other areas of the facility, with the exception of while in a swimming pool;
Third $5,000 bridge payment, for those already qualified and registered from before, could be processed as early as Friday.
Doesn't appear that games can resume for indoor sports. Just practices.
Full list of the new orders. Image
Household restriction for restaurants is not changing.
Roussin says modelling now factoring in vaccinations.
Fitness classes can resume at 25%.
Roussin says they are looking at domestic travel restrictions. Not seeing a lot of issues there. International travel is where the VOC cases are coming from.
Pallister on businesses who have been fined that are also applying for bridge grant program:

"They'll be dead even."
So March 26 orders will be different since all of the orders proposed are in the ones that will come into effect on Friday.
Roussin clarifies that organized team games, league play, etc., is not permitted yet.
Roussin says staying at Red because that's where we are in our critical response.

Mark Scheifele doesn't like analytics. Most NHLers, anecdotally it seems, don't care one way or another. They don't have to. No GM in the league is turning down Mark Scheifele because he doesn't care for analytics.

Pierre-Luc Dubois had a better answer anyway.
Hell, no player GM in the league is turning down Mark Scheifele because his analytics don't suggest good things.

I suspect the best players don't have to give a shit about them. Some people said Leon Draisaitl wasn't great because of his poor defensive numbers.
Some people suggest Kyle Connor isn't great because of his poor defensive numbers.

And then there are coaches that use different systems for analytics that we don't see.

Nothing really moves forward in these things.

Tucker Poolman returns to the lineup tonight, but who comes out is a mystery.

Laurent Brossoit starts.

Maurice not playing his hand on if the top two lines will look like they ended last night. Won't do it on a back to back, but says he's open to moving parts around.
Maurice felt there was no cost to making last night's line changes. Wants to see those lines for a while, but won't put experimentation over winning.
