  1. I am not completely sold on this pick up, but one thing is for sure... I haven't been this excited for the season to start in a good while! I can't wait to see how this all plays out. Between this and the Panthers in Charlotte, NC is on the rise!
  2. I have a quick question about St. Baldricks if anyone can help out. I have always wanted to participate, so this year I am signed up and getting pledges to shave my head. I know they are giving out 4 tickets to people that shave their head the day of game and participate... They say tix are while supplies last and it starts at 4:30, anyone know what time I should show up to make sure I get tix and get my beautiful new hair cut??? Thanks!
  3. Is Joni a softy??? Well, I just watched the game from last night again and I think we can just wrap this thread up with a solid affirmative YES! PLEASE JR, do something about this! I can't remember a D-man that has frustrated me as much as Joni has over the past few years. He puts a lot of work in... thats great. So do all those cheery people at the DMV. Don't mean they do it well! The truth of the matter is, he has always cost us goals and lately it seems he is costing us games. I can't see us being a real contender in the playoffs with pittiful Joni.
  4. Being a huge Hurricanes fan and living in Charlotte I am so excited for this. I have been talking about it for weeks with people down here. I love giong to Checkers games and now the level of play is giong to be so much better it is going to be a real treat. I go to Hurricanes games when ever I can and am working up there during the week. I can't remember the last game I went to on the weekend, but now I have the Checkers on the weekends. Talking my mother-in-laws company into getting rid of their stupid Bobcats tix and getting a box for the Checkers season next year. Hoping to be at every game. So Excited! But, I do feel bad for you Albany fans that have been so great. I am sure you will have a new team to be excited about soon. Go CheckCanes!
  5. I am going to say it. MAybe some of you are thinking it. Don't yell at me. New nickname: "Uncle Jessie"
  6. I am going to be at the lodge tomorrow night with a good group of people to watch the game. The bar area isn't huge, but they have a good Canes corner. It is on the corner of Rae and Colony in the little shoping area there. Really good food also. So if you see some canes Jerseys there don't be surprised. The more the merrier!
  7. What time are you going to get out there?
  8. WOOOOO!!!!!! I am sick as a dog, but I am going to my first airport ritual!!!!!!!! DONT TELL MY WIFE!!!! SOME ONE TELL ME WHERE TO GO!!!! I CANT STOP SCREAMING INTO MY BED!!! I LOVE BEING A CAniac!!!
  9. I think Brindy hit the nail on the head the other night. Well, about time he hit something! "If you would have offered us one game to win to move on, we would have taken it." I am not thinking that we could blow a 3-1 series lead. I am thinking that we are one win away from getting even further than any of us expected this team could take us. After Tuesdays game I put the odds of us winning game 7 at 1/15. Man was I acting like a little B. Today, 50/50. There is a winner and a loser, and that is it! We can wear them down. Score first, we win.
  10. I went to a bar really close to Matthews last night. My brand new neighbor and I went to Boardwalk Billys. 1636 Sardis Rd North. They have awesome beer specials and the food is great. I would love to see some more Canes fans there. I think we could get more and more as the playoffs go on and we could fill the entire bar!!! I HOWEVER, will be in North Dakota for the next 3 games. NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT!!! I will for sure be there for the rest of our Stanley Cup run if other people start going there. I am hoping to turn my garage into a Canes Viewing hot spot for next year. Have crazy idea of building the boards and glass around half of the garage, with a TV cut into a hope in the glass, want to build a floor to point white with all the lines on it, maybe glaze it over to look like Ice, have a bar on the side called the Penalty box. Then all Caniacs in SE Charlotte are welcome to come over for next year!!! I just hope I have a wife still after all that!
  11. Moving to Charlotte on Saturday. SE Charlotte. I am down with meeting people to watch the game. Already have my garage planned out for Canes games next year. I can tell you that I will be watching the game at a new bar called the lodge in SE Charlotte. It is on Rea rd where Rea turns into Colony. Not a huge bar, but it is pretty good for Canes games. I am not driving all the way to Birkdale. So maybe we need a South East Charlotte location also!
  12. 1. More scoring from the other lines. Maybe an Eaves sighting? Or even better, the captain lighting the lamp? 2. Goal tending and not giving up second chances...leading to number 3. 3. Defense, Defense, Defense!!! I think Boston moves the puck exceptionally well and we need to limit their shots on goal and get the puck out of our zone to limit their shots on goal. 4. Be Nasty in front of their net and more importnatly our net! Which leads to number 5... 5. Sit Joni at least game one, to see if this trend of better play after riding the pine continues. Other than the assist last night, I honestly dont know what he did well. Every time he touched the puck he was second guessing himself and we were having heart attacks watching him. Not steady, and we cant do that against what might be the best overall team left in this thing.
