    Should also consider opening for away games. Raise money for a good cause.

    It's inevitable that we and most of the world are headed towards whatever path the UK is headed for. They literally had settled things and the delta variant came and the rise in cases and hospitalizations followed. They're at 50% double vax vs us below 10. So we're definitely way more prone for a disaster if we neglect this simple reality.

    I'd bet on something more or less 5k at best

    If we manage to make the Stanley Cup Finals it would be a shame if we can’t have near full capacity like in the States.

    The fact that theres a rise is irrelevant. There will always be a 'rise'. And a fall. We have had this cycle every year with flu season. The only thing that matters is if we can assume the risk and move on with our lives. I think we're at the point where we can.

    7.5% for fully vaccinated...might be 10% by the time game 1 rolls around. Still not a lot.

    No superspreader events please.

    We're fine with 2.5k

    Vaccines work. There's no reason they couldn't go for 7,000 - 1 in every 3 seats. I'd go for half but it won't happen.

    I'm guessing the Habs make more money with those big ads over the lower seats than they would with a few fans here and there. Mol$on knows best.

    With Quebec going to yellow zone as of next Monday, they should increase capacity.

    When you look at the amount of people watching the game outside and celebrate, they can have that inside, but in the Bell Center is a more controlled environment.

    I wouldn't be comfortable until every man, woman and child has their mandatory 2 doses AND the additional booster shot for the variants of concern.

    If they don't let more people in, I've found a solution.

    Yeah, no. That's a you problem at this point. No offense. Like all things in life, zero risk just isn't a thing. Cheers.

    I think judging by the group of people outside the bell center for game 4 in close contact. Most had no masks on and the number looked greater than the 2500 in the bell center. I wonder if there has been anything from that 3 days ago. I'm doubtful. Like if they are worried about socially distanced in the rink which can be done is absurd. Their bigger problem is going to be outside. Atleast inside they have their rules and need to be followed. Outside well that's a different story and Game 1 will be more people this series.

    I think 10k which isn't even half the capacity of the bell center is doable. Spread them out from groups of 2-4. Plus you have the boxes as well where a family can go if larger than a group of 4.

    It can be done.

    Nothing to do with me.

    We have to listen to the scientists.

    You shouldn't be allowed in if you're not vaccinated at least 1 dose. Hopefully we get to 5k fans by round 3.

    Except here you would be taking risks for other people around you, not yourself. Hard to understand we are still having this convo after all this time. We’ll be back to normal life by fall hopefully. Why mess this up when there is so much at stake.

    Vaccines work. People claiming things can't go back to normal once enough people have been vaccinated are just as bad as anti-vaxers. I'm out.

    You mean boosters that the science itself says may not even be necessary for over a year unless it’s someone in a more vulnerable population?

    If you’re all about the science you’d know how effective one dose actually is on its own.

    You wouldn’t be comfortable but no one is forcing you to go to the games. Vaccines work as they are now.

    why is Canada so slow with vaccines? Here you can go anywhere at anytime and get whatever you want.
