Gregor wrote an article on Oilersnation where he roughly figured out how many potential games or days that Archibald would have to miss if he doesn't get vaccinated. He calculated that Archibald could potentially lose 41% of his total salary over his principals.

WOW. Better be worth it.


Wild to me that people would give up their dream for this. Archibald isn’t exactly a shoe in to get another NHL contract. Rinaldo likely done after this I’d imagine.

I’d have to really be against something a lot bigger than a shot in the arm that millions of people have taken to give up my dream of being a hockey player.

I think this could be the end of his career.

I don't mind Archibald. In my opinion he's a decent bottom 6 guy. He scores what I think a decent bottom 6 guy should score. For a little guy, he hits a ton. Has speed, kills penalties, gets in people's face and usually brings it most nights. He does exactly what a bottom 6 guy should do. But he is replaceable and I think there could be a lot of teams who decide he's not worth the headache because covid won't go away.

So I am hoping the Oilers are hoping they can convince him but in a week or so if he is still not getting it, they have to waive him so he can play in Bakersfield or just sit out. The Oilers would get the roster spot and cap relief. If he does get waived, I don't know if a team picks him up. If you are a fully vaccinated team, I can't see you wanting to bring in an unvaccinated player and put the rest at risk.

I really wish the league would step in here. They haven't made it mandatory which personally I think they should BUT they as a league are very much in favor of all players getting vaccinated to protect their league. So they should be allowing teams to be able to put the player on LTIR or something to get he and his contract off the roster so they can continue on with their business. This isn't a case of a stupid GM signing a bad contract, they aren't trying to hide guys or cheat. There is no wrong doing by the team. This is a case where an individual has made a decision that potentially puts other players and people at risk. If you are about player safety, then the league should step in and give the Oilers a way out that protects their players. Right now, the only way the Oilers have an out is they have to waive him, send him down but the team is being penalized by still having part of his cap hit on the cap and the roster spot. So the Oilers would be getting penalized for putting the safety of their players, their staff and any team they play first. That isn't right in my opinion.
