  1. We switched to YTTV, and about two weeks after, they dropped Fox Sports South. I don't know what I'll do if they don't bring it back. My days as a Canes fan might be numbered.
  2. The jersey they wore when they won the Cup is retro enough for me.
  3. I'm sure I'm an old fart, but I don't like the association with the Whalers. Karmanos move the team out of Hartford, and unless they are moving back, the Whalers should stay in the past.
  4. It's been shown, time and time again, that hockey is a big business. When a guy is released, or traded, the reaction is, "It's a business." When a player puts his career first, it should be recognized as a business decision. An established star, with a concussion history, doesn't want to go to the A, where a young guy might want to make a name for himself by laying a big hit on a star, and he gets labeled a head case. Teams can treat players as a commodity, but players are thought of in a negative light if they look out for themselves. Skinner is a goal scorer. He doesn't get paid the big money to play D. Just because he doesn't fit in Brindy's system, it doesn't make him a headcase, It just makes him a bad fit. Unless you personally know Skinner, it's wrong to lay a personal label on him.
  5. Who the heck cares what Skinner was, or wasn't? He's not our problem, anymore.
  6. Here is a bold prediction: The folks in St. Louis are really going to love the last 3-4 years of that Krug contract.
  7. Will he be able to go to the AHL at 19?
  8. As long as he grows into his eyebrows, we should be ok.
  9. Do we have something against big kids?
  10. Recently started with YouTube TV because they had all the sports channels I wanted. I got an email last night that they are dropping Fox regional sports channels effective October 1. Might have to uncut the cord when hockey starts back.
  11. I met John, and we talked about the Red Sox. He was a good guy. We very rarely miss a game, and during the very lean years, John and Tripp provided a lot of entertainment. Nothing against Mike, but I'm really going to miss John. Not only one of the best, but a good guy, too.
  12. I always E Staal was the kind of player that benefitted from playing with good players. I didn't think he made the players around him better. Crosby could play with a fire hydrant and a washing machine, and they would both be 50 point scorers. E Staal also seemed to have a lot of quit in him. Still, when he wanted it, he could be an elite player.
  13. No offense to Willy, but when JW is your tough guy in the playoffs, that doesn't say much for the rest of the team. The teams currently left have a great combo of talent and physical play. The Canes don't need a goon, but having a few physical players would be a good thing. They don't need a dirty guy like Wilson, but I guarantee everybody knows when Wilson is on the ice, and that influences play. When he is playing clean, he's a pretty effective player. I'd just like a few guys that make the other teams a little more cautious when playing against the Canes.
  14. As a Red Sox fan, this is going to be like seeing Wade Boggs wearing a Yankees uniform.
  15. Doesn’t this happen every October?
