  1. Canes marketing with another home run...er, hat trick. They modified the Bunch of Jerks t-shirt to say “Bunch of Front Running Jerks”! Available soon at The Eye. 😂😂😂
  2. @Leafsfan1967 Enjoyed reading your posts...hope you and your boys enjoyed the game and visit!
  3. I showed the Don Cherry video to Mrs. Storm and she says, "What an idiot!" I say in shock, "You can't say that, he's a national institution!!!" "In Canada," she finishes, adding "down here, he's an idiot!"
  4. There is one listed on craigslist, posted a couple weeks ago, that is like those I used to see in area bars. He's asking $350 (negotiable), Raleigh location.
  5. I thought top-shelf had a chance with his prediction last night. After the handshakes, the boys seemed to gather in a loose circle at the blue line and chat for a bit before they finally lined up and did the stick bows. In the previous home playoff wins, they pretty much lined up and did the stick bows right away, so when they gathered for a bit longer yesterday it made me wonder for a sec if something more dramatic was in the works...
  6. I didn't notice this after Game 3, but may have missed it, after Game 4, after the Star of the Game Interview, they played a skol clap celebration video on the JumboTron as fans filed out. Some fans did join in the clap as they were leaving.
  7. Cool! If we have a playoff game go to the shootout, Jake is our guy! ...oh wait 😜
  8. Don’t forget, we got Buffalo’s second round pick this year, with their bad record, is fifth overall (and 2 more picks in 2020). Canes scouting and drafting has improved, so that Rice-a-Roni may become a decent Prize Showcase yet...
  9. Just a note that the Cane’s charitable group is now simply called “Carolina Hurricanes Foundation” instead of the Kids ‘n Communities Foundation. I guess the name change happened this season, I didn’t realize it myself until we made a donation at a recent Cool Bars event.
  10. The Canes, with the great job their social media team has done this season, should have done a delayed April Fool’s joke and announced we’ll be playing in the Whalers jerseys! Can you imagine the shock, outrage and press coverage at that announcement!!! 🐳🐳🐳💚😂🤣
  11. Skinner popped in 2 goals in his last game to reach 40 and actually went a +3 over his last 3 games to finish even in plus/minus, his first non-minus year since his rookie season. He’ll have his big payday coming, be interesting where and how much.
  12. NHL Network’s “On The Fly” program had a nice video of the Canes season and their path to the playoffs on this morning’s show.
  13. I think its a “pick and stick” rule. Whatever jersey the team decides to wear, they have to do it for the duration of the playoffs.
  14. They are still available at The Eye team store. If you are not in the local area any time soon, the official on-line store for the Canes is carolinaproshop.com. I checked just now and they’re still available there too. Pricey at $32, but a cool momento of the season...
  15. Jeff Skinner was at one point, I believe, a +23 this season. He now sits at -3 (with 37 goals!). It would be nice if the Buffalo tanking can wait for another game and Skinner evens up his +/- today...
  16. I’m with ya Kyrule. It is frustrating after this incredible run to consistently get so little scoreboard help night-after-night.
  17. Love them or not, they are now clearly part of Cane’s lore, the Storm Surge celebrations! Yesterday’s March Madness celly was one of ESPN SportsCenter Top 10 plays this morning. If the stars align, the Canes will need about a dozen or so celebrations to get them through the rest of the regular season and post season. This thread is a suggestion box for ideas for future surges (and the surge in general). Board bragging rights go to those that accurately predict a future surge!
  18. Just tuned into the NCAA Basketball Tourney, Washington and Utah State are playing at the Columbus Blue Jackets arena. I am SO disappointed that they are not firing off that cannon with every field goal scored...! 💥💥💥😜😂
  19. I recognize those two jerks in the center and left on the photo with the reversed gloves. But that man on the right, when did Abe Lincoln join the Canes?
  20. Nice interview with Coach Rod on NHL Now on NHL Network today, it covered a wide range of stuff about the storm surges, the team streak, how he got into coaching, his fitness, everything. He was asked about Aho and one thing he said caught my ear. Rod said, “Aho hates to lose, just hates it.” I remember hearing Phil Esposito on XM for years saying the best players are those that “hate to lose...everybody loves to win, those guys are easy, I want guys that hate to lose.” Lots of times during the Eric Staal era, I thought we had leadership and players that loved to win, but didn’t really hate to lose...they sort of accepted it. #culturechange
  21. Have fun...tried to head out there and the car wouldn’t start. Just what I wanted to deal with on a Sunday afternoon... 😤
  22. As hot as the team has been, losing a couple or three could make it all go poof. What a race this is shaping up to be.
  23. And the biggest turnaround of all...the whole team is better by 48! The Canes goal differential last season was a sad -28 and they’re a plus 20 at the moment this year.
  24. Me and Mrs. Storm are a maybe. She mentioned that John Forslund is not announcing the game this year (I guess he’s calling the NBC game today?) and wondered who would call the action. I said maybe they’ll bring back Chuck Kaiton to do it since he’s an alumni! (Actually, that would be really cool if they did.)
  25. Every year in the past few there is angst at renewing. It was a month or so after the renewal season opened last year when I finally decided to sign up for another season. For some reason, I was actually eager to do it this year.
