  1. In Season 2017-18 Talk

    Well at some point Ronnie has to be held accountable. He's had a cozy life in Raleigh for what, about 19 years or so? No position in pro sports is permanent nor should it be. His record since becoming GM is nothing to write home about. Darling, Rask given contracts well beyond what they're worth at this point. Yes, he had to muck the barn after JR left but that is no longer a excuse. He has built a low budget stripped gear team; a bit of traction every now and then with a couple of back to back wins, and then the gear slips and its 2 or 3 losses, then it engages again and so on. With a new owner who will spend (I hope) Francis will now get another 3 years to show what he can do with money. As for this years edition of the Canes, they'll not make the playoffs. They are too inconsistent, lack finish in the worst way and play too poorly against the Metro teams.

    We’ll take it!

    Chuck and Vegas together seems like an oxymoron.

    Maybe BP did a team bonding trip to Mustang Ranch and the boys will play loose.

    I’m sure Erik has no plans to join a perennial losing franchise.
  6. And the beat goes on. As usual we lose by one and our goalie let in weak one to start a game. This has become this seasons baked in the cake recipe.
  7. Done with one and we’re not losing. Is that same as a weatherman saying it’s a partly sunny day?
  8. In this dumpster fire of a road trip thus far I’ve liked McGinn’s game. He’s not shy
  9. On an up note it’s encouraging to know we have Darling for for the next 4 years?
  10. And that’s a scary thought. It means the team doesn’t know up from down and the problems run deep to the bone. BP’s tool bag may not be deep enough to cure this pyschological issue. Maybe time to bring Dr. Phil aboard.

    My poll regarding Canes making the show is officially closed. Looks like I can put everyone plus me into the: Stand by for a maybe column.

    Can I pawn that mis naming off on being a Cane? Close but no cigar?

    2 points in first 3 road games; on pace for 2 more points in next 3 games. Total 4 points in 6 games. IF that holds, the Canes in this year of belief and expectations by fans and I would think mgmt/coaches/players will be out of the playoffs before we even got to Xmas. They are what they are: a budget team that competes (have lost 10 one goal games, 7 in OT or shootout) but cannot win with regularity. Hopefully Dunston is the guy that changes this pattern but for this season it’s probably over.

    Without caveats about the team as a whole or individuals players doing this or that over the comings months, just your gut take on the team right now wil they or won’t they make the playoffs? They are 8 points out right now and on pace for about 85 points.

    One step forward two steps back.
