  1. I'm 50 and I like this kind of stuff. It helps keep the room loose and the guys seem to enjoy it. Keep in mind that it is for the players, not the fans, and if the players are down then so am I.
  2. Interesting read from Down Goes Brown re whether the Canes are bad or just unlucky. Turns out they are. Click Me!!!
  3. So you are saying that the Hurricanes re-sell tickets through these websites at a discount rather than sell them for full price at the box office? I have never heard that but if true that is really bad.
  4. The other side of that would be "Why the [bleep] is our All Star defenseman getting in a fight in a preseason game?" If he breaks his hand then I'm sure there would be all sorts of wailing about how dumb it was. That being said I was okay with it and am glad he didn't get hurt.
  5. Yeah, $685k purchased back in June.
  6. Not sure about how the AHL does it but I would assume that if it was a 4 on 3 power play in OT you would simply go 4 on 4 (even strength) after the penalty has concluded until the next whistle and then go back to 3 on 3.
  7. But the poll is named "Where will the Canes end up in the 2015 draft?" and actually references picks. That is not "Where will the Canes finish the season?" as you seem to suggest.
  8. I'm not sure why everybody is automatically giving Buffalo the #1 pick. From the way I read it they have a 20% chance of getting that pick and while that is better than any other team it is far from a lock. And just for the record I voted 5th pick because that's how we do things. Not bad enough to be awful but not good enough to be good.
  9. Gosh, sorry I asked. Won't make that mistake again.
  10. Based on that assessment how do you expect to get anything in return...much less someone dependable?
  11. Not a showcase...just Peters sticking with a lineup that is working. He has made that pretty clear in his recent statements.
  12. The NASCARification of hockey! It is what it is though and other sports will eventually follow suit. $$$ talks.
  13. Mike Sundheim The @NHLCanes are now 7-3-1 w/ Jordan Staal in the lineup. A .682 winning % for the season would rank fifth in the league. Stuff like this is why I think you have people on here agreeing with the 'I like our group' sentiment. Granted it is a very small sample size but it is certainly more encouraging than, say, the Sabres current 12-game skid. Plus this is being done with little input from Skinner and with Semin and Nestrasil (big future upside) in the Press Box. We'll see how things play out for the rest of the season but unless there is an epic collapse I don't think this team is ready for a complete tear-down.
