    Draft Pick
  1. Ice Frog...you are close but incorrect on the number of times the Hurricanes wore the black jerseys this season. They wore them 15 times at home and 2 games on the road (I think the opponents were the Flyers and Rangers those away games)....either way I wish that the Hurricanes could wear the black ones at least once in the playoffs. The Black Jerseys need to be tweaked a little bit...I am not crazy about the red letters on the back which are hard to see....it would be better if the numbers were in grey with red trim instead from a being able to see standpoint....it is very confusing from where i sit in the "Storm Shelter" of the upper deck to see some players going up and down the ice.
  2. My answer will surprise you...I was a Anaheim Ducks fan thanks to the Greensboro Monarchs being their ECHL affiliate. The team that I watched more games of and was a fan of before 1993 was definately the Washington Capitals(it pains me to think now that I was once a Caps fan). I still pull for the Ducks somewhat but I have burned the Capitals bridge and I am never crossing it again...
  3. They have now upsurped the Sabers and Canucks and officially have the "worst jersey in hockey"....the color scheme is hideous...i like their sorry third jersey (the blue one) better and it had "Atlanta" down the sleeve which sucked too....
  4. I just wanted to say, I participated in this last year and I had a lot of fun....Hopefully more people will sign up this year!!!!
  5. I agree that the Canes should do a "Reverse Jersey" game or even wear the Hartford Whaler green jerseys. It would be a cool homage to do it in the 10th anniversary season to thank all the people in Hartford who still follow the Canes......during this game with the Hartford jerseys maybe we can hear Brass Bonanza too instead of this "Strike it Up" mess which i hate after the goal is scored..... In keeping with the jersey theme...I would love to see us get a new jersey in black maybe with a hurricane flag and hockey stick on the front and the eye that is primary on the sleeves of the jersey....it would be the coolest jersey in the NHL!!!!!
  6. The TV networks always seem to jerk with the Canes and it usually happens around this time of the year....in fact last year on March 4th, NBC pulled out of the Game of the Week with the Thrashers that the Canes had in Atlanta to show who else but Sid the Kid.... Until Canaic Nation gets recognized for the force that we are, things will never change and Versus and NBC will continue to treat the Canes like a small market franchise...... I do feel optimistic that FSN has signed a contract showing 10 more games for next season....I feel bad for those who are blacked out by FSN...that is never a good thing.... My question is: why cant we have a local tv presence.....like FOX 50 before.....to show a few games on free TV
  7. The most underrated Cane is easily Cory Stillman...all this guy does is add leadership and class when in the lineup. Honorable mention goes to Hamilton and Chad Larose. I respectfully disagree with the new guy on the boards from Thunder Bay....I personally think Letowski is the most overrated Cane.....He has 3 goals and few assists and many healthy scratches in the past year.
  8. Back in the Summertime, I bought a CCM Home Canes jersey at the Garner Kohls location for around $40.00(it could have been even cheaper if I would have signed up for a Kohls card). If anyone knows where you can get last seasons jerseys(the Reebok ones) for a good price, let me know. I would like one because that particular style was only used for two seasons and will be rare someday!!!
  9. Jeff Hamilton...wow..maybe we just got a steal similar to Justin Williams from Philly. This guy has done nothing but score in his career no matter where he plays. On a bad Blackhawks team he had good numbers. Im so happy now that at the Caniac Carnival, I got in his line for his autograph(which by the way was one of the shorter lines that day). Since he wears #51...I want to be the first to coin a new nickname for him....call him Area 51 because anytime he is in the area of the net, damage happens!!!!

  11. I have never seen any Canes players out in town, however when I was a substitute mail carrier back in 04-05' during the lockout season, I got to work on the mailroute that has Chuck Kaiton and Peter Laviolette and most importantly Julia Rowe(who I think is the real person we should try to support and see). My confidentiality agreement with the USPS excludes me from letting any of you know the location or city they live in. I respect the players, coaches and managements right to privacy!!!!
  12. Glad to see MSNBC give us some good press. I might have to start reading their stuff as opposed to those "great journalists" from CBSSportsline.... :angry:
  13. Honestly, if I had to pick a Cane I dont like, it would be Letowski. I just dont get why he is even on the team. Maybe he is a good practice player.If the NHL kept a statistic on "healthy scratches" he might lead the league. Having said that, I am sure everyone out there has a player on this team that they may want out of town or the league.(See Anson Carter,Keith Primeau, Jeff Oneil from previous Cane seasons, or Brendan Shannahan, who is my personal least favorite player in the league for never giving Raleigh a chance before the 97-98 season!!!!). As far as everyone ripping on Grahame, I see him as being like a pitcher in a baseball game who doesnt get run support. There were a lot of games last season where Grahame played great, but was the recipient of some bad luck (like letting in fluke goals) and lack of scoring from the Canes. Leighton played great in the preseason and is deserving of a chance. Competition is a good thing and maybe if Leighton puts up good numbers in Albany and Grahame falters, who knows what could happen.
  14. Suggested team names for a new MLB team in the Carolinas: Carolina Brightleafs....(honoring the tobacco heritage)-team colors yellow and green.... Carolina Racers....(honoring autoracing) team colors black and white.... Charlotte Bankers (honoring the banking industry) team colors tba.... Carolina Lighthouses(this would be the coolest logo in MLB, a lighthouse in the shape of a bat with a ball coming off the spotlight).....team colors tba Carolina Cougars(since we have Panthers and Bobcats why not Cougars for baseball) and lastly Carolina Flight(honoring the Wright Brothers).......
  15. If a baseball team ever came to North Carolina...you would have to put it in a location which could draw huge numbers of fans. Lets see....Greensboro-new stadium but not compatible for MLB(out) Raleigh(Zebulon) too far out(out) Winston Salem-opening a new staduim soon but too far away(out) Durham-12,000 seats but not big enough to expand(out) The only place you could put a MLB team is Charlotte and Im not sure if the team would be in NC(the Knights play in SC), unless you convert Bank of America Stadium into baseball. Charlotte in the NL presents problems with Atlanta and DC close by unless MLB is forced to move the Marlins(could happen someday). Realistically a baseball team if placed in Mebane or Burlington would be perfect since Mebane is 45min from Raleigh 45min from the Triad and 2 and a half hours from Charlotte.... Just a thought....
