Dater’s Daily: IIHF World Junior Championships canceled, Marchand tears up NHL over Olympics, what I’m reading


Happy Wednesday to you all. A cool and windy day in Denver, but sunny. There still hasn’t been a drop of snow on the ground here this winter. Maybe some dusting one day, but that was it. So, bad news today for fans to watch exciting and promising young hockey players. The IIHF World Junior Tournament was canceled today. You know why.

  • There is going to be a lot of anger about this. Anger and frustration. The players have received their vaccines, there are very rarely symptoms and young fit athletes do not fall dead from Covid.

Everyone is completely confused – and tired of it.
  • That last paragraph allowed me to channel what I hear all the time from the NHL and other hockey players about all of this. Me? I’m just trying to shut up these days and stay out of trouble lol. It’s not like Adrian Dater’s opinion on Covid is going to change a fucking thing anyway.
