  1. Still available. cc already had a ticket.
  2. I am a season ticket holder sitting in 325. I bought a ticket in 325, c, 1 through Ticketmaster for a friend, who now cannot go. I am looking to sell. Please message me. Will consider offers.
  3. I am looking for Upper Deck tickets to the 3/18 game against the Islanders. I can buy or trade 3/26 Tampa Bay tickets.
  4. Still interested? I am in Raleigh, driving to Durham at 5:00.
  5. Willing to sell for $25 each.
  6. Well, whoever the coach, I will be behind the team and will go to the games. The games certainly have not been very exciting lately - could it be much worse? With my tickets this year, I am now 0-3 and have seen 5 losses in a row total. And some of that action was the most frustrating, boring hockey I have seen around here. I can perfectly well understand the need for a change at this point, although I am not sure it is all coaching and not a mix of older players slowing down, some younger players in slumps, injury problems (3 years straight now), and newer guys and older guys still trying to find the right chemistry together. It just doesn't look like this team has the ability to work the puck and get good enough (and simply enough) scoring chances. Could be coaching - could be other factors too. It seems different than the past two seasons to me though - different as in much worse on the offensive end. Most of the past two seasons, at least there seemed to be some hope the Canes could win even when down. You can't win many scoring 2 goals a game. I am not thrilled about Maurice coming back either and do wonder about changes in playing style. I am not sure it was a horrible "mid-season" move though, especially if it was for the interim (barring a major improvement in team performance).
  7. Brindy at Moe's was my best and most recent sighting.
  8. Certainly Corvo's hat trick is right up there near the top for me, and that was certainly the most fun game. My kids went on the ice afterwards, and they gave out the Cam figures that day. Another good one not mentioned was the OT win over the Sabres. I remember running out of that thrilling game right after the final score (along with many others) to catch the rest of the UNC win over Duke. Sweet night for me and my friend!!!
  9. As much as I hoped the Caps would lose tonight for the Canes' sake, I share your belief in the Canes winning tomorrow and in what a great matchup it would be to have the Pens and Caps meet in the 1st round. We have to have something to watch when the Canes are between games, right?
  10. I feel the same way. I had kind of hoped the Caps could get in too, but now I hope for nothing but death for their playoff hopes. That schedule really favors them though. They get 2 straight at home in back to backs for other teams that we play. Fate is not helping, but the Canes just have to win. I think the Tampa game is the big danger. Get past that, and no way will they lose Friday.
  11. I was a big Ovechkin fan too. I guess that hasn't changed completely tonight, but this is about as pathetic as it gets. We have a giant of a game with 2 teams playing hard, and we get some of the worst officiating possible. The Caps are playing well - they don't need the help. That call on Hedican was just nuts!! And the interference on Walker - more nuts!!
  12. Watch the auctions on NHL.com. You might find some Ladd stuff on there. The Canes sell a lot through that site.
  13. After games can work. The times I have been there after games I haven't seen many guys come out to sign, but you could get lucky. I have managed to get a few then, including visiting players. Practices are definitely great. At the Rec Zone in particular you can get as many as 20 in one day. It is definitely worth it if you ever have the time to get here for one. Actually RBC practices are good too, although a handful of guys will drive by without stopping, since they are in their cars when they leave those. There are weekend practices - more fans but still good. I have never failed to get autographs from at least 2-3 major stars at a practice on any day of the week. Of course, one of the downsides now is that Brind'Amour and Williams won't be available. If you make the trip, make sure to get some cool stuff to sign - like logo pucks (now available at the Eye) or a mini helmet or two.
  14. I would have to say several items come to mind - a game worn Boulerice helmet signed by all of last year's team, except Big Joe and Carter; an Eric Staal game used stick that I bought via auction last year, the Slice of the Ice thing that someone else mentioned (much cooler than I ever expected), a lineup card from the 2006 E. Conference finals, and a Gerber used and signed goalie glove, and definitely photos of my daughter with Edmonton fans at the 06 Finals. I also treasure my souvenirs from the 2002 SCF Game 3 against Detroit. It cost a bunch to go, and the Canes lost - but it was such an amazing game that I will never forget.
  15. I am looking for the Brind'Amour figure too. Email if you have one. I am willing to buy. My boss actually got me one at the game, but her son dropped it and broke it. Boo hoo.
  16. I have to say I have been very impressed with Samsonov so far.
  17. Cool end to a good hockey game. I can't believe we won a shootout!!
  18. I am going to go with 6-1. The Canes will skate hard and have the Panthers on the penalty kill a lot. The Panthers will get so tired that they may start diving themselves from exhaustion. Hurricane goals - Brind'Amour - 1, Whitney - 1, Williams - 2, Staal - 1, Hamilton - 1.
  19. I must say that the early season has had me wondering about the Canes. Maybe the inconsistency of last year was hanging around. I think the next couple of games may give some indication of just how good this team may be. Let's see if they can string some nice wins together. But - I think two early games like this one and the Penguins game have me thinking this team is certainly greatly improved at the least. Two dominant performances. Cullen has shown he belongs here, and his play is making this team better. Stillman gave me hope tonight that he can get back to near his '06 form. Staal looks hungry, faster, and ready to kick butt again. Cam is looking tough, tough, tough. Hamilton so far seems to be a pretty darned good addition, and he has a nice shot!! The defense has actually looked pretty good most of the time too. Giving up only 7 goals in 4 games is a good recipe for success. The offense - well, they have not been totally consistent, but tonight's game and the Penguins game showed how fast and relentless they can be.
  20. I decided to go to one game this week, and I picked the wrong one!!! They are at their best in this one. Cam and Staal have been terrific, and I am very impressed with pace and tenacity. This may be one of those games that sets the tone for a big season.
  21. So what wheels does Williams have now? Can they actually be sweeter than that Astin Martin he has or had. And back on topic, good to hear Cullen is officially back in town. Hope he got a warm welcome. Sounds like its hard for A. Ward and Bates to leave us huh. I can't wait until Sep. 14 when I'll be able to finally get to see the boys on the ice, even if it is just practice. I was there too. Wallin's doughnuts were hilarious!!!!! You have to admire Justin's taste in cars.
