  1. Time Warner provides some service here, but not where we are. Seems odd that ATMC just dropped the channel from their line up without any notice. They had announced other January 1st coverage changes, but never mentioned dropping FS-CR. So I'm hoping it's just a negotiating game. Otherwise, yes, I'll be looking at a satellite service.
  2. I went looking for the FS-CR channel Thursday night for the Canes game vs. St. Louis and it was no longer there. So, I contacted ATMC, my local cable provider, and they informed me Friday morning that they had removed the FS-CR network from their line up. Said they could not accept the 42% non-negotiable price increase from FS-CR ! ATMC serves the eastern NC, Brunswick county area. So now we're without Canes TV coverage here on the east coast. Any other cable networks currently having this price/cost battle with FS-CR ?? I guess they should change their network name to Fox Sports some of Carolina !
  3. Lets expand this action ... I voted to trade Cam if at all possible, but doubtful of any return and RF would have to pay a significant portion of the salary due forward. BUT it frees up a rebuild spot. Personally, I don't want to buy a game ticket and get stuck watching Cam in net for the Canes ever again. If at all possible trade or waive or buy out Semin. What a waste of $7 mil a year. Pressure him, assign him to Charlotte, maybe he refuses to go and we're done with his annual $7 mil. Frees up a rebuild spot. Trade Skinner before his NTC kicks in. Might get a decent return; might not. Doesn't matter. Earlier this season I would have had E. Staal up high on the trade wish list. Now, I'm less anxious, and I've heard the rumors that Staal won't waive his NTC. But I'd listen to all possible options.
  4. 30 is another annual waste of $6+million. Canes have over $25mil in 4 guys who haven't done a damn positive thing yet this year. Sucks. If they can't win soon, they'll be playing to an empty PNC arena.
  5. Yep, Cam's back ... lets in 3 goals on 13 shots in his first pre-season game. .76 save % .... yep he's back.
  6. Lavi is available ! With JR at least partially out of the picture now ( NO, I don't believe what I just said ... top 3 management guys ARE STILL the SAME top 3 management guys ) Lavi 2.0 sounds good to me. That would at least get me thinking about renewing 2 of my 4 lower level season tickets. But only thinking. Ward and E. Staal gotta go too before I commit any more $$$ to this pit.
  7. One big point seems to be missing from this conversation .... why did they leak ( not officially announce ) this JR is leaving story at this time of the season ? I have a theory ... the Canes are in the process of seeing a mass exit of season ticket holders, who are frustrated by another season like the past 5. STHs are not renewing for another season of the same. So the Canes let the N & O leak the JR story, to show us that things will change. HOWEVER its BS ... with JR staying as president and Francis moving from Assist GM to GM, NOTHING REALLY CHANGES. Top 3 in the owner/management team will still be the same top 3. Yea a few job title and pay grade changes but the same 3 decision makers. So what's going to change ? This STH won't be one next year.
  8. If they can't trade him then Ward needs to be bought out ... After 13 years as a full STH, I'm not going to another game while he's still on the roster.
  9. I'd love to see Tort's passion level behind this bench. Doubt we'll ever see Lavi 2.0 while JR is still here. They butted heads and team strategy. Lavi was right ,,, JR was boss. Canes are just about the lowest scoring team in the league ... and it's not just a PP issue .. it's a coaching system that is weak on an offensive strategy. The system and the whole coaching staff needs to be fired before the next shortie is let in.
  10. WOW ... and YES ! If JR would come out and say AND DO this tomorrow, he might not have to deal with the mass STH exit that's about to happen. Step one ... Muller has got to be fired before the 3/11/14 home game. Don't replace him yet, just do some interim BS thing ... just get him out of the PowerlessPP way NOW.
  11. After 12 STH years .... I've decided not to endure this painfull lack of performance any longer. Not sure I'll even go to any of the last 8 home games. Why punish myself more ? I've had a gut feeling about dropping out of the STH ranks for several weeks now, but when JR did NOTHING towards fixing this team at the trade deadline, and so far has done NOTHING about firing all the current coaching staff .... well my decision was made. I'll have $12,000 available to spend on something else next year. The ride was fun at times, but too frustrating and disappointing for the past 5 years.
  12. Insanity = same players same coaches same system .... and expecting better results. NO change = NO change = No fun for fans. Next year ... same thing ??? Not me !
  13. JR totally underperformed today at the deadline, just like his team has done this year ( again and again years ). Still sitting with a bunch of $4 million to $7+ million a year contracts on folks who are not playing anywhere up to their pay grade ... and JR does nothing to help the situation. He went thru the process and got no results today ... just like his team does ... stick to the system and lose another game. Says he must be happy with the team he has on the ice ! Only good news I see from his lack of action today is that we shoud see the entire coaching staff all fired soon. He wouldn't keep the same players and the same coaches and think the results would be better ... would he ?? And then expect the same season ticket holders to return again next season ?? Not I, Mr. JR .... Not I. Good by.
  14. Anybody who has a salary over $4million a year should be traded ... none are playing up to the level they're paid. I don't even care if we get much back for any of them ... just get rid of them and their cap. The whole damn lack of motivation and emotion coaching staff HAS GOT TO GO !! I also wish JR would retire but it's difficult to force out a part owner without a "deal". Mr. K ... take over and make something happen !
  15. Clean house ... including the coaching staff and Chantal. Anybody with a $4million contract or more should go. NONE are playing anywhere near their value.
  16. Canes 4+ year powerless play has now gotten worse. Not only do they continue to go 0-for all again, now they're giving up shorties with the man advantage. Everyone associated with coaching the PP system for this team should be immediately fired. How stupid they look .... multiple years with the same problem ( really problemS ) and never doing anything to fix it. After 12 years as a season tix holder ... I'm done. Will find something better to spend that $$ on next year. Maybe a boat !
  17. I doubt Anton would consider staying with the Canes as long as Cam was still here. Anton wants, and deserves, to be a starter, not just the back up waiting for Cam's next injury.
  18. JR has no choice but to carry 3 netminders for the rest of this season. Hell, neither Anton or Pete dog cost him much, and he can't get rid of Cam's $6.6+ price tag to anyone, so why not keep them all for now. He knows Cam will be hurt again after he sees a few starts anyway.
  19. Get ready ... Cam's on his way back to Raleigh today ! After letting in 3 goals in his last AHL conditioning game !! But JR's presser didn't mention that part. I guess we'll have to watch Cam return vs Mo and the Jets on Tuesday. Hope the Canes can score at least 5 goals per game going forward, until Cam injures something else. NO .... I'm not happy about his return.
  20. I'd rather see the Canes shoot some fireworks on the ice ... but lately all we have to get excited about is some BS trade rumors. Happy 2014 with more of the damn same from JR ?
  21. I agree with one change ... put Cam in for the next 8 games in Charlotte or with the Everbaldes. No issue putting him on waivers ... no team would pick him up as bad as he's playing. And if they do ... we win !
  22. real JR blockbuster nite here ... makes me NOT want to sell my tix for new years eve game ... even IF I could find a buyer. Gotta hope Cam is waiting for a phone call.
  23. $6.6 million for an 85% saves goalie who lets in just about 4 goals per game is about $6.5 million over payment. Somehow, he's gotta go, asap. Ya'll need to get real.
  24. So ... you're saying you are OK with Cam's 89.3% performance last night and his 90.1% for the season ? Maybe we need to pay him more than $6.6 million this year for those numbers.
  25. let's offer them Cam at a 50% deal and be happy with nothing in return !
