  1. Yeah i'm happy about the lessor pick thing... and getting a proven guy is good for the pick, its less if a gamble was my point. Which is pretty much the JR strategy and look how Pittsburgh does. Every year we say he has screwed them for the future and all they do is trade picks for proven guys and win. Its not just Crosby/Malkin there as you can see... they are out half the time.
  2. I actually like Fleury. He's top 4 at times I agree. Was just pointing out that all the firsts are a gimme, its taken quite a while for him to get there. Much better examples are out there of first rounder misses for sure... he's not a miss but you probably expect more out of a 7 overall.
  3. I agree that the first for Skjei in a banner draft year is the most troubling... but I also remember the first pick the Canes ever had was Nikos Tselios with the 22nd pick and he played 2 nhl games. So getting a known top 4 D with a late first rounder is a bird in the hand move. Fleury is still not a top 4.
  4. Just for FYI, I listened to SiriusXM Home Ice all day and several times it was opined that "Carolina won the day" and no one disputed it. In their opinion we hit it out of the park. Pittsburgh 2nd place. They panned FLA as idiotic to spend 10M for Bob and then dump Trocheck, have no idea what they were doing. "The only thing they got out of it was less money. And they are contending."
  5. I have also heard of Gen X subdivided into the "Atari" and "Nintendo" generations. I am Atari.
  6. I hate this team because I can't shake how many times we should have beaten them and they win. Give the Hagman a treat and beat these bums for a change. I know, mom's game and everything against us but its about durn time we stop laying down for these chumps and get our mojo back.
  7. We have hashed this out before. The loser point is a marketing device used to present the illusion of teams being in it later into the season than they really are. It keeps more teams in it, which keeps more fanbases engaged which means $. Its not about fairness it is about $.
  8. 55 game report Overall Trend (10 Game) Metropolitan Washington +21 +2 Pittsburgh +19 +4 Islanders +16 +2 Atlantic Boston +23 +4 Tampa Bay +21 +7 Toronto +10 +2 Wildcard Columbus +13 +6 Philadelphia +13 +5 Out Carolina +12 +1 Florida +9 +1 Rangers +4 +2 Montreal +3 +4 Buffalo E -1 New Jersey -4 +1 Ottawa -8 -2 Detroit -25 -5 By Trend: Killing it: Tampa Bay +7, Columbus +6, Philadelphia +5 Stinking up the joint: Detroit -5, Ottawa -2, Buffalo -1 Summary: 55 game goal is +11, Canes are +12, 1 win over pace. Canes out for the first report this season, even though it is one point out. Trend of +1 is behind pace. Extra disturbing with nearest competitors killing it. It looks like it has become a 10 team race for 8 slots, 6 teams realistically out. 4 teams can play .500 and will easily make it in (Washington, Boston, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay) This leaves 6 teams for 4 slots (ranging currently from +9 to +16). It looks like 5th place or better in the Metro will make it in. The 6th place team in the metro could easily be better than the 3rd in the Atlantic and get screwed. Not so fun: Canes are 59.9% to make the playoffs, BUT were 88.8% to make the playoffs a mere 10 games ago. Ahhh, the Metro. In spite of the alarming trend, 97 points has more than a 70% chance of making the playoffs. SOMEONE loses every game, it is impossible for no one to lose. People need to be reminded every now and then, math always wins. If the Canes continue the slow and steady they should be fine, but REALLY don't need a losing streak of any consequence from here on out now. http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/Eastern.html
  9. I think they are in there, just loose.
  10. +4 over these last 27 games gets us 98 points. 98 points is 74% chance to be over the cutline. Canes right now are 70% to make it. http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/Eastern/Metropolitan/Carolina.html
  11. 50 game report Overall Trend (10 Game) Metropolitan Washington +22 +2 Pittsburgh +17 +4 Islanders +14 +0 Atlantic Boston +19 +2 Tampa Bay +14 +6 Florida +12 +6 Wildcard Carolina +11 +1 Columbus +10 +6 Out Philadelphia +10 +1 Toronto +8 +1 Buffalo +2 +0 Rangers +2 -2 Montreal +1 -1 Ottawa -6 -4 New Jersey -7 -1 Detroit -22 -3 By Trend: Killing it: Tampa Bay +6, Florida +6, Columbus +6 Stinking up the joint: Ottawa -4, Detroit -3, Rangers -2 Summary: 50 game goal is +10, Canes are +11, 1 win over pace. Trend of +1 is behind pace, cushion from early season success has been eaten away. The good news is the Canes do sit in a playoff spot with 32 games to go. There is more to be done. It looks like it has become a 10 team race for 8 slots, 6 teams realistically out. 3 teams can play .500 and will easily make it in (Washington, Boston and Pittsburgh) This leaves 7 teams for 5 slots (ranging currently from +8 to +14). It looks like 5th place or better in the Metro will make it in. The 6th place team in the metro could easily be better than the 3rd in the Atlantic and get screwed. Not so fun: Canes are 71.7% to make the playoffs, BUT were 88.8% to make the playoffs a mere 5 games ago. Ahhh, the Metro.
