  1. From Toronto I think we are looking at Kapanen and a pick for Faulk. From Chicago maybe Anisimov or maybe Saad for Faulk straight up. The Skinner/Cole thing has been blown out of proportion - If anything they have already talked about what Cole said. If I was management I would ask Skins if it was 100% his intention to leave after the upcoming season, keep a lid on his answer, and if it is trade him for the best possible return. If he states that isn't the case sign him to a three year extension......
  2. Hi Chantel.....really my post was just giving my opinion that Michelle is 100x better than you. It is solely my opinion and it doesn't mean you didn't improve over the couple of seasons you were here. I hope this post finds you well.
  3. She is the best sideline reporter/web host/etc. the Canes have ever had! I mean she is 100x better than Chantel! Kudos to the org for hiring her!
  4. We will make the playoffs this year as the #8 in the East and make it to the semis. Tonight's game is going to solidify this team and we are going to go on a magical run. Heard it here first.....I like the makeup of this team.
  5. Not as a habit, no. Your post just seems very ironic, tis all. Welcome to our new friend from Fort McMurray!
  6. Where do rockets go for this surgery you speak of?
  7. Unless this Dallas game turns around in a hurry I would definitely think about blowing it up and attempting to start fresh. Max value out of our UFAs and any other players that are deemed expendable. After that definitely do not go on a 9-10 game winning streak to fall from pick #2 to #8-11. If you want to win 9 or 10 straight do it when it matters!
  8. Seems like Greg is talking to himself! Mods should check the IP addresses out and see if good ole Ducky is from the Peg!
  9. Just terrible, when will someone realize that this "team" isn't getting it done. Faulk was -3 I believe....he hasn't been consistent at all this year....and the goaltending. Oy vey!
  10. The long and short of the LaRose situation was that ultimately he and Muller didn't see eye to eye. I think the respect was there (as evident by LaRose's play), but Muller correctly slotted LaRose as a third or fourth liner and Rosey didn't agree. You throw that in with how Rosey was being paid in the Canes "slotted" system and you understand the difference of opinions. LaRose's time with the Canes is up, but I am surprised that he hasn't signed with another team. He has experience and has shown he can be productive from time to time. I suppose he hasn't been offered enough money, the contract terms aren't right (one way), or possibly he has an injury that no one knows about.
  11. I don't know if anyone would be interested, but I have a framed autographed picture of Ruutu with Certificate of Authenticity from the Carolina Hurricanes I am looking to sell. Thought I'd see if anyone was interested here. I bought it at a silent charity auction for Duke's Children's Hospital and had it in my "office" until it had to become another bedroom for our latest addition! Let me know if you are interested in thread or via PM. I am local in the RTP area.
  12. Is it appropriate to say me likey the glasses?
  13. 1) What will Eric Staal's +/- be after and including the game on Feb 21st? +12 2) How many assists will Jordan Staal and Alex Semin have combined for after and including the game on Feb 21st? 20 3) How many goals will Jeff Skinner have after and including the game on Feb21st? 8 4) What place in the conference (not division) will the Canes be after and including the game on Feb 21st? 3rd 1point Bonus question worth 3 points!! How many total points will the Canes have after and including the game on Feb 21st? 19
  14. Part 1 1) Who scores the first goal of the season? Alexander Semin 2) Who scores the first assist (primary assist only if there are 2)? Eric Staal 3) Who takes the first penalty of the season? Joe Corvo 1 pt 4) What will that penalty be for? Hooking 5) Who scores the first PP goal? Jeff Skinner 1pt 6) Who has the first fighting major of the season? Kevin Westgarth Part 2 1) What will the Canes record be on and including Feb 12th?(after the first 12 games)6-3-3 2) How many games will our back up goalie have played by and including Feb 12th? Two
  15. My question is how did he get hurt? Seriously, I don't believe he was playing anywhere, was he? Just a real killer if we have a shortened season.
  16. How about Jeff Hamilton to center the third line and be a PP specialist? Also heard Babchuck may be available for the right price?
  17. I am actually Scott Howson and have been following the Canes for years. All I am asking for Rick Nash is Jeff Skinner, Cam Ward, Justin Faulk and your 2013 and 2014 first round draft picks. You will be getting THE RICK NASH. How can you say no? You guys need to put pressure on your GM to make this deal happen!
  18. Columbus doesn't need any d-men so throw those guys out. Tlusty had had one solid year, Dalpe is a mid-level prospect at this point, Rask eh who knows? The only thing enticing is our first round draft picks and I think Howson would view those as less valuable because let's face it: Staal, Staal, Skinner, Nash, Ruutu, Tlusty, and Jokinen making up a top six would be stellar and we should also have a pretty decent powerplay. I mean the pick would be in the high teens to twenties. Not much value there. Stick a fork in the Nash talk, it ain't happening. (IMHO)
  19. Hey Crazy, what do we possibly have that Howson would want? I mean it seems like the guy wants a Zamboni that lays golden ice. I have to join the "let's give Semin" a try camp at this time. Who knows, maybe Muller and he would click and there is no doubting his skill. Of course this is a pipe dream too...
  20. If Howson knew asking for Skinner was a non starter, then how the heck did we even remain in the "chase" for Nash? It seems like Howson is trying to leverage what ever he can to get some of the big market teams to pony up more for him. I hope, for this reason alone, that Howson gets screwed on any Nash deal he makes. He isn't in a position of power here, for pete's sake be reasonable here. If Nash isn't moved Columbus will be a dismal place to play.
  21. That's not too far off from what I believe he is worth. There are other contracts out there that are really surprising. Allen was a good player and member of the community...he'll be missed.
  22. Why would anyone want to play with Crosby and Malkin?
  23. "How am I going to get these guys to play fourth line? I mean they aren't Chad LaRose for gosh sakes!"
  24. If we sign both of them I am buying two years worth of season tickets at center ice. #andIaintrich
  25. Still don't think we get Parise or Suter. Hope I am completely and utterly wrong.
