Translation: The #Raiders  won't be waiving Takk McKinley for a failed physical, as the #Bengals  and #49ers  did. After a long few weeks, Takk has a home in Las Vegas.

"I think the pressure is on now which means that you could drive a zamboni through the window. It's time." @GenePrincipe , @snseanreynolds , @sportsnetmurph  & @ryanleslie73  discuss whether the Flames or the Oilers' window is here for a . #StanleyCup 

As everything else in life, the pandemic has had a significant impact on scouting. While it's early yet, here's a look at whose stock is rising 📈 and whose is falling 📉 in Sam Cosentino's first ranking of the top prospects for the 2021 NHL Draft.

It was "wear your fave T-shirt day" at work so I chose this one @lindseywiebe  brought me from @ONAConf  2015. I didn't attend #ONA15  because of #elxn42  and also I was pregnant with the little angel you see scowling behind me. (That #yyz  ↗️ #lax  flight would have been rough!)

As COVID-19 surges in conservative-led provinces, federal Tories save their criticism for Ottawa via @alexboutilier ⁩

Trudeau goes a step further than Dr. Howard Njoo has, and suggests that there are "very good chances" that most Canadians will be able to be vaccinated by next September. First we've heard this timeline. Njoo said last week it would be by end of 2021.

Tam says Canada is on track to hit up to 10K daily by mid-December, according to forecast. " "Right now we have a window of opportunity to act is not the time to is the time to plan holidays that are safer."

Note: The NFL competition committee added roster flexibility -- 16-man practice squads, unlimited IR-return, etc. -- for issues like the #Ravens ’ COVID-19 outbreak. The stance has been any schedule changes are medical decisions, not competitive decisions. Who's out is irrelevant.

I asked @CPHO_Canada  last month how many homeless people died of #COVID19 . Tam said she didn't have exact numbers at hand. Turns out, neither she nor PHAC have any idea. Their best guess? 4. Frontline workers say they're wrong. My analysis @TorontoStar 

Tam: national picture 353,097 cumulative cases 11,799 deaths 60,375 active cases Avg 75K tested daily over past week w 7.6% positivity rate 5,300 avg daily new cases over past week, and 2,100 in hospital, 430 ICU, 76 deaths each day

Scoops of the Week

The #Ravens  disciplined a strength and conditioning coach for not reporting symptoms and not consistently wearing a mask or tracking device, which may have contributed to the team's rash of COVID-19 cases, per sources.

The @Colts- @packers game drew 23.9 million viewers on Sunday on Fox. That's the second most-watched NFL game this season — behind only Bucs-Saints (25.9 million) in Week One.

Reports from Argentina that Diego Armando Maradona has died. By some distance the best player of my generation and arguably the greatest of all time. After a blessed but troubled life, hopefully he’ll finally find some comfort in the hands of God. #RipDiego 

The Sacramento Kings have declined to match the Atlanta Hawks’ four-year, $72 million offer sheet for restricted free agent guard Bogdan Bogdanovic, sources tell ESPN.

Diego Maradona has died at the age of 60, his longtime lawyer and agent has confirmed. • Played in 4 World Cups • Won 1986 World Cup and Golden Ball • Won 9 club titles with Boca Juniors (1), Barcelona (3) and Napoli (5) One of the all-time greats.
