  1. Nice late season run put them in the playoffs. It ended too soon but I can't complain. They made the playoffs. Checkers' Season Ends with Game 5 Loss in Chicago by Nicholas Niedzielski Leighton, who was cleared to return from injury just prior to this series, played his first game since Feb. 17 in relief of McCollum … Di Giuseppe’s goal was his first point of the series. Aleksi Saarela left the game due to injury in the second period and did not return
  2. We thought the ESPN coverage of the NHL was bad. I can't wait to see what they do now. I expect the ice they will cover will be in short glasses at a sports bar. Let GO.. NHL Columnist Pierre LeBrun Hockey Writer Joe McDonald NHL Columnist Scott Burnside

  8. I don't think you can under estimate the Ryan accomplishment to reach the NHL let alone his earned value to the Hurricanes this year Good Luck Derek Ryan

  10. Picks are in. I suspect just like the Canes I will have trouble holding a lead.
  11. I think we can agree to the general assessment you put forth. Although I wouldn't mind a 20 goal 3rd liner or two added to the mix. There is no reason to not think Skinner could be a 40 gaol scorer and Aho a 30+ goal scorer but after that ( unless you count Faulk) is there anyone else that you can say at this point will be a 20 goal player next season. Certainly any of J. Staal, Lindy, Rask or Stemper could be but I sure wouldn't say they will be. So I stick to my assessment that a top scoring center is essential and we also need to add to our secondary scoring. Goalie replacement I think is a bit more complicated but only because I think their could be plenty of options.
  12. Canes Agree to Terms With Steven Lorentz by Terrell Williams
  13. I'm gong to stray from the heard a little. I see the big move, the absolute move is to obtain a top scoring center. If you can do that the options of who plays where and who you could potentially trade open up. Second on my list is the goalie. Without question the crease has to be addresses Next is to obtain a 5-6 Dman. It is a must. I expect one of Fluery McKeown to be up next year. maybe both. Having a reliable 5-6-7 Dman is a must After that we have to settle our bottom 6. We need more secondary scoring. Jmac is an FA. Stemper is likely headed for LV. Ryan is a FA. I expect some of our Chex may join us to fill out the roster but one or two veteran bottom line players who can play the position and contribute to special team play (PK) are essential. Peters said he was going to outline specific needs. He knows better than me but those are the specific needs I see.
