    Today, PNC Arena’s food service VAB Catering made a large food donation to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. The Raleigh-based non-profit is focused on providing emergency food to families affected by the Coronavirus crisis. $300k donation....good job.

    OK- how in the H E double hockey sticks is this determined unless you work with the guy and occupy the locker room with him?

    If Jordan's last name was Smith rather than Staal, he'd be a 2C or 3C who plays solid at both ends without much upside or downside. He's not a great leader, playmaker, or scorer, but he's dependable, good defensively, and is not going to make mistakes that cost games. I agree that he seems a little different this year. Maybe he's still dealing with the loss of his child last year, and he certainly deserves to be cut a lot of slack after that. Maybe he's playing hurt. He seems lost or vacant in his post-game interviews. Sometimes I wonder if he'd just rather be Jordan "Smith" and enjoy playing hockey as a solid 2C or 3C who doesn't have all the baggage that comes with being a Staal or wearing the C. Whatever is going on with him, I hope he finds his way—not because it will help the team, but just because he matters as a person.

    Oh, the head-scratching and prediction analysis. Isn't this great??? I've been following the squad since '02. Don't post much but do enjoy most of the banter. What makes this great is that the Canes are once again relevant. The Committee is pushing buttons and pulling levers to do what they deem best. I can't remember an off-season where I've actually checked the 'net multiple times a day just to see if anything has happened regarding the team. Looking forward to my appointment time tomorrow when I can log on and select my paltry 11-game plan dates. Due to some monetary issues I actually considered cancelling my plan but am going to keep it. Wouldn't it be great if Remkin's island could be named the 8th continent over the next few seasons???!! Carry on folks. Thanks for the insight and the fun.

    Turtleneck makes another value signing, waiting out the UFA madness on July 1. Great addition!!! Can we now move away from any suggestion Dundon won't spend money?

    Really glad Marty's back, he brings a lot. I'm also an Eetu fan, really liked watching him out there. We most definitely haven't seen the last of him.

    Snipe away. Plenty of great goal scorers never hoist Lord Stanley. Ask Marcel Dionne. At the end of the day, he's not a team guy, and that's what Brindy wants to build a team around. I would say Brindy can take solace in the fact that he's building a team around guys that buy in, not ones that stand around hailing a cab so they can pad their stats. Brindy wins. So much winning.

    He has 1pt in 6 games......and it's an ENG. He got USED like a rented mule, on the one Columbus goal. It's been a terrible start for the young man. Aho has to realize there is no flying under the radar anymore. Teams are going to match up against him to hold him down. Time to put the big boy pants and hard hat on, and go to work. The other lines are playing well, so I suspect RB will leave them alone, and let these guys sort it out. I personally think he needs some snarl in his game. I know he is a "gentle personality" by nature, or at least it seems when he has been interviewed, but the guy has to get angry, just like Patches O'Houlihan once said.. I want to see more intensity out of him. Where is that third gear from last year where he just blew by people?

    I left the board (took a break) after it turned into political sniping and juvenile insults. I wasn't going to come back until an announcement was made. Then Mrs. wxray tells me about this (see still reads the N&O) and I took a peek here to see if it was safe. Maybe not safe, but at least some of the name calling has stopped. So, this is really interesting news. It kind of follows with Dundon's style, doesn't it? Remember when he came on. Actions were swift, direct and harsh. (Ron Francis, Chuck Kaiton, and my favorite topic, Larry the organist.) The fact that this situation is resolving harshly should not surprise us. A thought about travel. In an optimal world, it isn't too bad between O'Hare and RDU. The problem is we know air travel is not optimal these days. Especially O'Hare in the winter. The good news is that the Allstate Arena is literally next to the airport. A player could live in that neighborhood and be 10 or 15 minutes from the airport or arena no problem. In a large metro area like Chicago, that matters. Believe me. If the arena were, say, in Naperville, that would be a real hassle. Travel is certainly better than upstate NY or MA. All in all, nothing surprises me with Dundon. He will continue to shake things. Oh, and maybe in the future when the world returns to normal, this will be a great reason for me to go visit my family. I went to a Wolves game a few years ago on a visit. It was fun. Very different. Not sure I am into indoor fireworks hanging off the jumbotron (with associated debris raining on the ice), but hey, it is the AHL.

    Watching this game 7 brings back a lot memories. On a side note I thought I would share something positive with all of you. I currently have a daughter and today we found out we are having a boy. Exciting times and I will get to see what it is like to have a son and a daughter.

    I have to give everyone a hand. I haven't been on for a couple of days and I expected everyone to be taking the pipe. I don't hear no fat lady. Hang in there, we are gonna get this. We lost a lot when we lost Pesce and the 2 sieves.

    I know that TD gave Forslund a one year deal, and as much as you'd possibly expect from John he dropped the veil on that he was surprised by that. What I wonder though is the details. I'm guessing that Forslund has an out clause if Doc Emmrick ever retires and the national job is offered to him. Could be that TD doesn't like giving a long term deal with the out clause? I'm purely guessing here because otherwise it makes no sense to me. If you're lucky enough to have a guy like Forslund calling your games, you gotta lock that down.

    I think people may be underestimating Skjei a bit. He makes good money for a reason. This is a guy who can play in your top 4. He can skate, he’s not some big pylon. He’s a Cane now so I’m a fan, if he does improve/develop more, he is going to be very valuable for us.

    Wish we could’ve kept Priskie...Eetu will have a respectable career as well. Wally? Take him or leave him. Doubt he will ever be more than a 4C. Still, nothing bad to say about his time here...solid contributor for what he did, and I wish him well.

    We got Priskie for nothing. Great work again by the dysfunctional cheap-*edit* front office that can't attract talent to Raleigh. Hope he actually develops concurrently with the hopes by the front office that he will. If so, this is just great asset management by the team, considering expiring contracts and the expansion draft.

    That is a good deal for us and for Brock. For me, he's a 2M a year guy, so if we overpaid, it is not by much. 3rd liner that is a key PKer, hits everything in sight and can chip in with some goals.

    It's a shame half the fanbase gave up on this team when the sky fell on the first day of free agency. They'd really like this move.

    The RedWings are 5-27 on the road. The Islanders NEED this win at home. If the Islanders lose this one, they should be in full on panic if they're not already, and I'll be smiling ear to ear.

    You mean besides most of the guys on the roster, who went to the Conference Finals last year? Well, how about... Staal: Won the Cup (58 total playoff games before last year's 15 with the Canes). TT: Won the Cup (plus 7 more playoff games with Chicago before last year's 15 with the Canes). TVR: Won the Cup (and 11 more playoff games with Chicago before last year's 9 with the Canes). Edmondson: Won the Cup (22 games last year in winning it, and 27 in the two years before). Haula: Finals in '17-'18 (plus 25 playoff games with Minnesota over the four years prior). Nino: 39 playoff games with Minnesota. Hamilton: 23 games (19 with Boston, 4 with CGY). Dzingel: 24 games (15 games with OTT and 9 with CBJ.

    Dundon caught a lot of flack from some here because of how things went down with RF. We obviously don't know the details but this might shine a new light on the situation.

    I don't see Brindy as the begging type for most things but through interviews where Brindy said things such as he hopes he wouldn't need to talk to Williams about his decision I get the vibe Brindy asked as a favor that Williams not retire and just take as much time as he could on the decision with hopes Williams would miss the game and come back. I think Williams is content with being a full time Dad at the moment and his next NHL role will be in an office if he wants one.

    All this extra curricular activity is fine with me. We have been searching for a real in your face, I don't like them rivalry for years. I'm good with both Washington and Carolina ratcheting up a healthy dislike of each other.

    Decent return. Faulk wasn’t going to be here next year, and I think his AAV is too high. Happy we got players and not picks. Just glad it’s over, and I wish Faulk the best. The good Faulk was fun to watch.

    If he doesn't start the season, he gives up the C. You can't have a part time captain. It's time to move on. Thanks for everything, JW, but it's either in or out. I have all the respect in the world for him, but you can't count on a guy that's not fully committed. I'm not blaming him. He's certainly earned the right to hang em up. I wish him nothing but the best, but, I think, his days as a Cane are done.

    An indirect indicator: when was the last time you can recall the Canes at risk of losing players to waivers instead of hoping to pick up players off waivers?

    Some folks say they think Williams is done, this could also have been the signing that makes JW think it's worth coming back for one last huzzah.

    6 people rated the committee as average or poor. How in the world can that be with a new group who inherited a team that had not seen playoff ice in a decade, who iced a team with about half the players new from last year, and that team made it to the ECF's? Sometimes you don't get nice things because you can't accept nice things. No, all the moves didn't seem like a home run, but the overall results were good. Excellent would require bobbleheads.
