  1. The problem is we have a team made up of soft offensive minded DMen along with small forwards who play on the perimeter. Not a good combination for a coach's pre-lockout style.
  2. Due to the jinx factor I fully expect Toskala to get a white wash tonight. If not, it is all but a certainty "Swiss Cheese" Theodore will shut the door on us Thursday.
  3. Torts in Raleigh as a Christmas present
  4. This is the very reason Lavi is on the hot seat. Missing the playoffs did not sit well with JR. Reading between the lines on what JR has said this summer it seems to me he is quite upset Lavi didn't suck it up and abandon his "push forward at every opportunity" strategy in order to sit back and gain the valuable point in certain games. The 1-0 loss in Nashville being an example of that.
  5. Patrick Eaves signed to a three year deal. http://hurricanes.nhl.com/team/app?article...mp;service=page
  6. It took Bodreau a couple of weeks to light a fire under the Caps.
  7. This was also rumored to be one of the reasons for his demise on Long Island.
  8. I wish he only had ten lackluster games this year...and the April 4 game was a not good one to lay an egg in. I think Cole is the most over valued player around the NHL on our roster. If we can get a tough skilled young DMan in return for him I would hope that JR pulls the trigger. Especially since he will be a UFA after next season.
  9. I'd be curious to see if JR feels the same way after the game Cole played Friday night.
  10. The Caps are a hard working honest team with a superstar who loves to play the game. I have no problem with them finishing in the 7th or 8th spot. The Panthers on the other hand are a bunch of whiners who get no respect from me. I really hate to say this but I'd rather see Lindy and the Slugs in the playoffs before Jacques Martin and the Kitty Cats.
  11. 4-3-1.....Losses on road to TB, FLA, and WASH. A shootout loss at home to the Craps. We finish with 92 points.
  12. Eaves has far more talent than a 4th liner. When he is 100% you'll see he belongs as one of our top 9. We didn't give up Stillman and Commie to get someone who plays 5 minutes per game on the Brookbank/Letowski line.
  13. Third line with Walker and Aucoin. Eaves is a nice upgrade over Bayda who can move to the 4th line while Conboy goes to Albany.
  14. This is how I would like to see the forward lines a month from now: Cole/Staal/Whitney Samsonov/Cullen/Stillman Walker/Brindy/Ladd Pick three from the remaining forwards
  15. If I were in Lavi's shoes and I had all of my forwards healthy this is how the lines would look: Cole/Staal/Whitney Samsonov/Cullen/Stillman Walker/Brindy/Ladd Pick your three from: Hamilton,Letowski,Adams,Larose,Brookbank
