  1. To add on, it also lets you see these young men often before they get spoiled by the dollar signs. This is where I have had a chance to get candid photos prospects like Brandon Sutter, Boychuk, McBain, Borer, Chaput, Dalpe, Peters, Skinner, Kivisto, Dumoulin, Rodney, Murphy, and many others. You get to see them acting like kids with other kids, despite it being their job. While these names might not all be familiar, or spelled correctly, they are the building blocks from which our team has been constructed in the past and moving to the future. It is amazing how many people come just to get a hockey fix. It also made me feel better when I heard they traded Paradis before last season as I was not happy with what I saw compared the other prospects who drafted below him. (More evidence is that Paradis was traded again). In short, if you need a fix and want to see what is coming down the pipe in few years....unless your name is Jeff Skinner.
  2. Draftees and other prospects to take part in conditioning and on-ice workouts Tuesday, 06.28.2011 / 4:00 PM / News By Ken Preston RALEIGH, NC – Ron Francis, Director of Hockey Operations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team will hold its annual conditioning camp in Raleigh, July 10-13. Hurricanes Head Athletic Trainer/Strength and Conditioning Coach Peter Friesen will run the camp for 11 prospects, teaching the players proper conditioning techniques to help them prepare for careers in professional hockey. A full roster of the players attending the camp can be found here. In addition to physical training techniques and testing, the players at the camp will have seminars covering other areas including motivational techniques, media training and proper eating habits, including a trip to the grocery store with a nutritionist. On-ice sessions will be led by Francis, Assistant Coach Tom Barrasso, Assistant Coach/Development Coach Rod Brind’Amour and Director of Defensemen Development Glen Wesley, and will take place each day at The Polar Ice House in Wake Forest at 4:30 p.m., except Sunday, July 10, which will begin at 5 p.m. Media interested in covering the on-ice portions of conditioning camp should contact Mike Sundheim or Kyle Hanlin. The Polar Ice House is located within The Factory at 1839-200 S. Main St. in Wake Forest.
  3. Players there today were Brindy, Rosey, Cole (didn't skate), Whitney, Aaron Ward, Sean Hill, Corvo, Samsonov, Conboy, Walker, Wallin, and my hero Jorge was in goal as Cam nor Leights were present.
  4. I suppose I should not be so disappointed, but I am really not happy there be no red/white scrimmage. Lets face it, you likely will not see people destined for the Everblades get as much ice time in the other scrimmages as they do in that game. I know the younger kids have their own tournament this year, and that may be the reason for no red/white game, but that does not mean it will not be missed. I hope it returns in the future.
  5. You should get a letter in the mail that includes the form for additional tickets for opening night. Be aware there is no guarantee that the seats you get will be in your immediate vicinity, but I think they try to match as best as possible. If anyone else has more specific information, feel free to chime in.
  6. I'm thinking they are waiting to post it on the main site until its closer. I'm sure they are more focused on getting our free agents and RFA's taken care of. I certainly hope they accomplish that task.
  7. These are from the Thrasher website http://thrashers.nhl.com/team/app/?service...rticleid=433536[/post] http://predators.nhl.com/team/app/?service...rticleid=436438 Date Fri, Sept. 18 Nash @ Carolina Hurricanes RBC Center 7 pm (Note: Nash says 6, but that is local time) Monday Sept. 21 Atl vs. Carolina Hurricanes Philips Arena 7 p.m. Friday Sept. 25 Atl @ Carolina Hurricanes Raleigh, NC 7 p.m. Sat, Sept. 26 Nash vs. CAROLINA HURRICANES Sommet Center 7 pm Makes you wonder why other teams have released their schedule yet the Canes have not? Waiting for the fan fest is my idea.
  8. So many teams are opening up their arena for a draft party, but not the Canes. Would there not be enough interest? I know I would be there in a heartbeat. They just need to model what the Blue Jackets are doing....bring in some players, sell some refreshments..and let us see that new Jumbotron!
  9. It always has been in the past. The kids can't believe we pack the place just to see people we have never heard of work out. Kind of cool. Unspoiled at that point, for the most part.
  10. I called the Eye and she called a person of "higher authority" at the RBC center who said it could not be done. I have read elsewhere on the internet of people maybe taking their's to a place that does uniforms and the like. Does anyone know of a place that does hockey uniforms? I don't know if the RecZone or any of the Ice Houses are equipped for such a request, so I am really relying on the knowledge of others. Any suggestions would rock.
  11. Anyone mention John Grahame? His infamous brother, Graham Cracker <see photo>
  12. Not sure you've heard of this person, but his name is Jared Boll. He is a native of Charlotte and still lives there in the off season. He plays for the Blue Jackets. Boll I think is 2nd in the league in penalty minutes...or at least was.
  13. why would it be blacked out? It is not being broadcast locally.
  14. Ron was on the bench and the powerplay looked like *edit* the 1st 2 periods. 3rd period looked better, but no results.
  15. I am interested in the Blue Jackets tickets if the current sale does not close.
