  1. down goes usc. only scoring 13 points against washington. very surprising.
  2. I remember a few seasons ago, you could purchase tickets through ticketmaster.com for $10.75 when 107.5 was a sponsor. I wish they could arrange it so the special could be used online.
  3. notre dame vs. michigan state -- a must-win for the irish or else weiss' hot seat is going to be upgraded to super-freakin-red-hot...
  4. the panthers should've signed someone that would put some pressure on delhomme to step it up. i guess when it comes down to it, there really aren't that many quality quarterbacks out there that could possibly be signed. i initially thought that the panthers might look at tarvaris jackson from minnesota. i had heard that he was looking for a possible trade. i know that he isn't pro-bowl material but at least he has the athleticism to escape pressure.
  5. i don't know if anyone has posted any updates on the condition of kaberle -- i was looking at espn's box-score for the st. louis game, and they had him listed as a scratch with a "broken leg"??? was the injury that severe???
  6. i guess all that talk about toronto possibly getting a second nhl franchise is supporting by those forbes numbers. with the economy in the state that it's in, it will be difficult for carolina to bring up those numbers. does anyone know how this year's attendance (so far) compares with last year's???
  7. Man, sweet video. That's enough to get a Caniac's blood flowing! Can't wait to see the puck drop on opening night!
  8. Let me know if you have any luck finding a site that offers it because I was hoping to get a customized jersey from the team web-site as well. Maybe they just haven't gotten around to setting that up yet.
  9. Of all the players out on the ice, LaCouture was clearly the one that really wanted to impress the coaches, and he did just that. Like some others have said, I also expected Eaves to really step up, but that wasn't the case at all. During an interview with Tripp, Eaves said that he was glad to be back at 100%. He clearly wasn't giving 100% out on the ice.
  10. 1. Crosby 2. Ovechkin 3. Zetterburg 4. Lecavalier 5. Iginla 6. Malkin 7. Thornton 8. Gaborik 9. Datsyuk 10. Kovalchuk 11. Kopitar 12. Staal 13. Heatley 14. St. Louis 15. Toews Toews may seem like a bit of a stretch - but he's got a ton of potential. It'd be nice to see Chicago make some noise this year in the West.
  11. I have an old Greensboro Monarchs hockey puck that I'd be willing to part with.
  12. Is Melichar playing the red/white scrimmage? I can't stream it on my computer, but I was talking to a friend that saw #22 on the ice???? If so, how has he played???
  13. I recently saw a pic of Gleason wearing #6. I think the pic was from the ceremony unvealing the new 3rd jersey.
  14. With Williams out, it's going to have to be someone along the lines of Eaves or Ruutu that's going to have to step up. Hopefully, our boys can stay healthy -- especially Brind'Amour. I'm reluctant to make a verdict on Babchuk until I see him in a regular season game. In terms of Ward -- I think he has shown improvement, but it's nice to have a more stable back-up goalie waiting in the wings. I know that Leighton doesn't have much NHL experience, but I have more confidence in him than I did in Grahame.
  15. The only problem I have with the new jersey is the black/gray patch on the shoulders. I wish the patch was in full red/black/white colors. Aside from that, I agree that it definitely will add some menace to our overall look. Hopefully it will help against the defending champion Red Wings!
  16. It's clearly an unfortunate situation that really can't have a positive outcome. I doubt that we'll see Tanabe back on the ice in NHL gear.
  17. I sent you a message regarding the Anaheim & NJ games. Let me know if those are still available. Thanks!!!
  18. i think that seidenberg played a strong game tonight. he certainly wasn't afraid to hit those pesky philly forwards -- including a good one on briere. the way i see it is this - people keep saying that kaberle is a "soft" defender in that he rarely hits so it's obvious that opposing players know this. if kaberle is battling an opposing player, in pursuit of a puck against the boards, the opposing player knows that kaberle is not going to physically remove him from the puck. the fear of a hit needs to be running through the opposing player's mind. with seidenberg, on the other hand, he really seems to be a "physical" presence on the ice.
  19. just got back from the game - and i have to agree with all of you. the 2nd period was difficult to watch. the canes looked totally dead and deflated out there. it was nice to see the surge of energy late in the game, but it was clearly too little too late. when we play 60 minutes of high-energy hockey, we can beat any team in the league. when we don't...well we've been seeing the results of that. just hope we bounce back with a win against the caps on friday. we really, really, really need 2 points out of that one.
  20. Winner: Canes Game winner: Staal Most shots: Canes First goal scorers: Canes: Stillman Flyers: Carter Score: Canes: 4 Flyers: 2 Goal Scorers: Canes: Stillman, Cole, Staal, Cole Flyers: Carter, Briere, Upshall Number of Powerplays: Canes: 6 Flyers: 4 Powerplay Goal Scorers: Canes: Stillman, Staal Flyers: Briere
  21. i went to the new year's game last year when the canes played the flyers. it was a cool time. after the game, there was a band that played & they had a giant puck drop at center ice as midnight approached. i'm going again this year because last year was a blast. there really wasn't a very big crowd, however. or at least there were less people than i expected.
  22. what a brutal game - our special teams were really disappointing tonight - and our defense clearly needs to get in gear
  23. i guess that'll go down as a short-handed goal on the stats sheet to add insult to injury
