  1. 118 of 'em in this thread alone... :wink:Congrats, First Liner...
  2. Looking for a little humor on a sad day (since nobody reacted to my Irbe post), how 'bout this: Depending on how soon the called-up goalie can make it to the team, there's a good likelihood that we may see Tripp Tracy suited up as goalie for practice tomorrow at the RBC Center (as he did on at least one occasion last season). That should make practice interesting...and, if nothing else, should make our powerplay look REALLY good in practice...!!
  3. The solution - Arturs Irbe: He's "tanned, rested, and ready!"
  4. I'm not an "official" A-MS member, but agree with whatthepuck. This was a low scoring playoff-type game. The Rangers didn't exactly light up the scoreboard either. We give that kind of effort here on out, we'll be rewarded more often than not.As for Cam, if it's lacerated muscle with no nerves involved, would 4 weeks be an unreasonable recovery time (at the best-case scenario end)? Any more medical-savy folks then me out there know?
  5. Thanks Oilman...you guys are the best. I will never forget after Game 7 the number of Oil fans that were congratulatory to me and my fellow Caniacs. They were respectful during the Cup presentation and three guys who we never met before, that drove down from Edmonton, even joined us for the champaigne and beer we were celebrating with in the parking lot after the game! Unbelieveable and quite a contrast to the folks from Buffalo.
  6. It might have been a face-off he actually won, too. Staal won 63% against the Caps, but is only about 43% wins on the year. He started the season so well in the circle the first couple of weeks, I thought he'd turned the corner to becoming a solid draw man...I guess not yet.
  7. On the lines -- I thought the Cole, Vasicek, Stillman line was an "interesting" combo...but, though they had nothing to show for it on the scoresheet, thought they played well together. Vasicek continues to work fairly well and hard in the offensive zone on the boards...I just wish he'd remember he's playing center and not wing and drift to the net more. Whatever line he's on, his positional play makes it look like we're playing three wingers. :roll:
  8. Congratulations to Scott Walker, selected as the NHL's Number 1 star from all of last night's action around the league. More efforts like that are needed down the stretch.
  9. Funny to see...but sad, too, that he's only raised $390 (so far) for a good cause for doing this. C'mon guys, if it gave you a smile give a buck or two...
  10. Yeah, the way Edmonton pounded us 5-0 last night and us with guys injured. The Canes just showed no heart, no effort. Outplayed and out hit in every aspect. No way we'll win Game 7. Heck, we're only 6-6 in our last twelve games. Just a .500 hockey team!! Average, nothing special. We're toast!!Just wanted to give a little flashback as to what some of these posters may have written or been thinking back on the morning of June 18, 2006. :wink:
  11. The game is on Center Ice. Ottawa feed, obviously. And the Ottawa announcer keeps calling our guy "Ryan" Whitney... :roll:
  12. I didn't recall hearing the Brass Bonanza before Game 2 of the finals either. Although I do remember them playing it before Game 1 in the series with the Devils (which we won 6-0). We beat Edmonton 5-0 in Game 2 of the finals. So, that's 11 goals to 0 when the Brass Bonanza is played!
  13. I think it was a bit generous scoring Graham an assist on that play. But the same can be said of about a quarter of the second assists as they can frequently be so far removed from the actual scoring of the goal.
  14. Regarding Wesley's future, frankly I was surprised he came back this season. However, his level of defensive play has been solid (he leads the team in +/-). Not fast, but with his experience he seems to know where he needs to be to get his stick in or just make a body block on the puck without fear as he did last night. If he wants to re-sign, I think the Canes would be willing to do it based on his play to date.
  15. Sorry, I guess my tongue-in-cheek was missed. :roll: Anyway, I thought it funny Chuck is getting his head shaved as a "sacrifice" for charity as there's not much there anymore. I wonder who talked him into this?Tripp, on the other hand, that could be traumatizing for him. I can only imagine the ribbing John Forslund will give him for his new look, particularly after all the fun Tripp has been making of John’s look with his new glasses!
  16. Information about the St. Baldricks foundation and the status of Tripp and Chuck's fundraising efforts can be found here - Tripp: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/sh...l?ShaveeID=2712 Chuck: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/sh...l?ShaveeID=2717
  17. That was when leading after 2 periods (until Tues night vs Atl.).Their win % is now "only" 95% of the time When the Hurricanes score first, they win 74.1% of the time which is currently 9th in the league. San Jose leads the league in that stat with 82.8%.
  18. Ah, beautiful. The Red Storm rests...
  19. No he is not a center ... He must have played center at some point as The Internet Hockey Database also lists Carter as a center -http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdispla...3?pid%5B%5D=847 He played center at Mich State but has been a RW in the NHL. He is not a center and is not going to play center here. Just to get ya goin' 'Rider :wink:, Sports Illustrated also lists Carter as a center with Boston back in the day -http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/hockey/nh...s/Anson.Carter/

  21. A fifth rounder is little "future" to give up for Carter, true. But, don't forget the "present" is about $600,000 or so in salary to him. That's a big chunk of change that will come out of JR's bonus :-o if the team doesn't make the playoffs. JR must believe this is a move that will work and not simply a gamble that "may" pay off. Those knocking Carter's play this season so far, don't forget that Recchi was having a horrible season with Pittsburgh when we got him last year. ESPN's Scott Burnside makes that point too and overall thinks this is a good move for Carolina: http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/columns/story?id=2776792
  22. For a fifth round pick? Pretty good pick-up for little cost. Good for JR for getting something. Not that Anson will light the world on fire, but he'll be better than continuing to have Defensemen play O or constantly calling up Little Leaguers.
  23. Just noticed on SportsCenter this morning that they showed Wesley's goal as "Number 7" in their ESPN Top 10 list for the day. Way to go Wes!
  24. Advice for Lavi? Put some voodoo on the posts so they'll bounce in for us.... How many posts have we hit these last two games? Seems like about 5 or 6.
