    Draft Pick
  1. I have to disagree. Taking the team's highest scorer off the power play makes no sense. Who would you replace him with? Whitney assisted on the only goal of the night and did so in highlight reel fashion. IMO, His pass resulted in a goal more than Brindy's shot did.
  2. Anyone remember this game from last year? Something went right that night. check out the 3 stars at the bottom of the page. Maybe Joe should sit out for 59 games and then come back again. http://www.nhl.com/scores/recaps/1111_2_recap.html
  3. Here's one... Teach Vasiceck how to play in front of the net. Regardless of his skill level, it doesnt take much effort to stand in front of the opposing team's goalie. That big body can at least provide a decent screen for shots from the point.
  4. Hey Everyone. I have finally calmed down a little bit and I think that looking back on it we played well tonight. It wasnt flashy, but most of these posts would be gone if it were not for a fluke goal off of Cam halfway through the third. We outshot Atlanta and controlled the puck fairly well through most of the game. I felt our passing actually looked decent and that everyone was in sync on the ice...It was definitely the fewest offsides we have had in a while. At the end of the day it looked like we either made a bad gamble or just got stupid at the end of the game. With about 3 mins to go Atlanta went for a change and we had the puck at blue line. Rather than play it safe, get it deep and go for a change, we took a chance and tried to carry the puck into the zone for what would have been a decent opportunity. Atlanta stopped us and was able to dump it up ice quickly for a clear shot over Cam's glove. Someone posted a message in the Hurricanes talk section about us not trying. I think we definitely tried, but that it just wasnt meant to be. We have philly on Thursday and that is going to be a bruiser. That team plays physical and we are going to have to play back at them if we want the 2 points. If nothing else, Thursdays game should give us a good chance to take out some of tonights frustration. GO CANES!!
  5. They care plenty. That was a tough game. We played grind it out hockey, got a bad beat soft goal out of nowhere then got tight/stupid at the end of the game. I don't know if we were trying to catch them on a change or if we just didnt get the puck deep. Either way...bad move with 2:30 to go in the 3rd.
  6. I hate making posts like this. I dont like to get down on a single player. I really want him to do well, but(i appologize for the basketball analogy) he's kind of like a 7 foot center who should dominate, but cant catch the pass from a great assist man and fouls the shooter every time he goes to block a shot.
  7. So to net this all out from last year....We basically traded Tverdovsky for Walker and Gleason right? I would say overall that was a pretty good deal at the end of the day.
