  1. I like the deal, and don't plan on giving my season tickets up anytime soon, so a no-brainer for me.
  2. Good post Remkin! I too can't say that the 06 team could be in any way considered a fluke. In fact, I tire of the comparisons. I too heard Forslund's comments and I think he was dead right on. The team we have is no more than a playoff bubble team, swimming in mediocrity. My concern is in today's NHL, getting out of that position is very, very hard and could take years. But, that's all ready being discussed elsewhere.
  3. Remkin, I think we get your point.......again. Okay, I had us a 1-2 at this point. Got that right, just got crossed up on the Jackets and Buffalo games. I'm calling for the big win on Wesley night.
  4. Take me off your list. As frustrated as I get with this team I am reminded of the other team I support, the Atlanta Falcons. I started watching when I was nine years old and that was 41 years ago, with only a couple of Division championships, one NFC championship, and one appearance in the Super Bowl, which we lost. But every year, I get excited about the upcoming season and support MY team. Here in small town Raleigh, we have won a CUP in only 10 years, and I have to say, that Game 7 final was the most exciting sports moment I have ever attended in my adult life, and I have been to Super Bowls, World Series, etc, etc. IMO, I think you are dead on wrong suggesting Mr. Rutherford has failed in his job since coming to Carolina. In fact, just ask the Predators, the Blue Jackets, and the Panthers fans what it would feel like to win a CUP in their small market, in just 10 years. As fans, I would rather give them the business while on the ice (why are we so afraid to BOO this team) rather than some "letter to the editor".
  5. I envy your vision about the rest of the season but I just don't see it happening. It's time to clean house and start over. Keep Cam, everyone else can go, except Sutter.
  6. Can we bring up some rats and have at least some entertainment for the last month or so?
  7. I like the idea of breaking this team up. It's going nowhere. I do think no matter what we do it's not a quick fix and we are likely stuck in mediocrity for quite some time.
  8. A loss tonight and we have dug ourselves a big hole, again.
  9. What we need is a "BLAME DU JOUR" thread, then everyone should share in the fun. Don't see how you blame Ward for last night.
  10. We have had chance after chance this year to put ourselves in solid playoff position, but we follow good play with a streak of poor play. We still have a chance, over the next 8 games or so, to do it again. But, with this team, who knows? Watching Florida last night it was apparent to me that they WANT to win, they may not be the most talented team in the EC, but they are getting it done because they are hungry. My hats are off to them, and outside the top 4 teams, may be the best of the rest right now. The enigma continues.
  11. I was the only one who had us losing this one. So, I'm one for one ......kinda Now the wins will pile up......uh I hope.
  12. I don't have alot of confidence after last night either, but I had us picked to lose this one anyway. Florida is a way better team than the Canes. But, I can't throw in the towel just yet. I will wait (yet again) and see how the next 8 games play out. I think I might rather see what happens this year, and if we miss the playoffs yet again, have a fire sale and go with some youth.
  13. I'm so pumped for tommorrow night. TSA, are we still ON?
  14. My response includes February, so ditto again!
  15. Like I said earlier, 6 teams are now battling for the last 4 playoff spots so no one team has an easy schedule. EVERY game is important, and who knows who will get hot or go cold the last couple of months of the season. Plus, the trade deadline looms, although it may not be as substantial this year as in past years given the salary cap issues most teams face.
  16. My Hurricanes "fat pants" (i.e. my very comfy pajama looking bottoms I wear for every game I watch on TV) and my Eric Staal bobblehead who I high five for every goal in games watched at home too (we are buds)!
  17. With 6 teams now in the hunt for the last 4 playoff spots it should make an interesting finish down the stretch. I do like our heavy home schedule to close the regular season and propel the Canes into a playoff berth. Let's hope we can start the Kitty's off right with a home win. I sure hope the crowd is into it tommorrow night - big game.
  18. Yeah Remkin, have some faith man.
  19. Seems like I've heard you say we are "suddenly a better team" a time or two.
  21. I agree. The time to address this is now. I would only hope that Rod himself has realized his play is below the caliber he expects from himself and has admitted it to management and has come to a mutual understanding with the team that it's time to look at alternatives. Maybe the move in Vancouver to come home and the Jokinen trade reflects this.....I don't know. However, as a fan, I expect management to put the best product on the ice, no matter the situation. As a fan, I deserve that. But to suggest it's Brindy's call to make seems irresponible to me. Any other player with the stats Rod has this year would not be in the lineup long.
  22. Exactly, but my original point in suggesting us closing THIS thread is the original name of the topic itself. Brindy can't be "minus whatever" and "currently the worst defensive player in the league" if he is not in the lineup. I'm not suggesting we close the conversation on the Captain, let's just frame the conversation in a more respectful atmosphere (thread), and one that reflects what we do moving forward, no matter what your opinion is on his future. IMO, he deserves that.
