  1. Whuuutt? Really? 3 guys we were all excited about a year ago for a #15 pick that has a small chance of ever making the NHL? and than Brady Skeji too now? So basically get rid of any new arrivals in the last season and a half?
  2. MM did great both games so far. And thats his first 2 games and both from a tv screen 700miles away.
  3. Don't know if its been said but is it possible that John will "free lance" games during this weird pandemic season for NBC? Than once things get back to a normal hockey schedule with fans in the seats he will sign with us? I mean there had to be a lot more $ to be made by doing games for NBC than the Canes during this summer tournament. I am going to wait and see what he and we do when stuff gets back to normal. Canes got little to no revenue with no fans in the seats. NBC has millions. Easy to outbid us on this one if they wanted him. Than when stuff gets back to normal John makes a true decision.
  4. I might be in the minority on this but I really don't have much interest in them doing some weirdo summer league that is supposed to be the finish of the 2020 season. The reasons are: 1. Players will not be in great shape and there will be summer league injuries that will keep them out next season 2. Whoever wins it just won't feel quite as satisfying and real as grinding for 9 months for the Stanley cup, it will just feel like, eh they won that weird pandemic season where they played some odd format in the summer. 3. It will affect how and when they start the next season, I would prefer to scrap it and start on time with a full season next year. Let this be the year that it was cancelled and lets move on and open training camp in September. However, if they do go ahead with it I will be watching and screaming for the Canes, but it will have a very weird unreal feel to it. I won't hate on it, but it just seems like it will be a cheap end to a season where someones awarded the Cup and it's not really a big deal.
  5. we traded for him? who? I don't even remember its been so long. Oh yeah, that trade.
  6. I think the only way the season goes on is if there is a postponement of 3 weeks or less. anything more than that and you cancel the season. This thing still hasn't peaked and than has to come back down. It will likely be a couple more months of mass hysteria until it's over.
  7. Honestly not to excited about Mrazeks quick return. I mean a slumping goalie who is recovering from concussion symptoms. If anyone needs there balance and to see straight on the ice it's your goalie! Lets hope he has zero symptoms when he returns. We can't afford to put him in for a game and than take him out half way when he is getting lit up due to "concussion symptoms". Happens a lot when players are rushed back.
  8. Lol, so yeah he needs to learn how to goal tend basically? Lets hope it's not that bad, might as well throw in there that he needs to work on keeping puck out of net. I think Ned does fine if he gets a few more starts. However we can't afford to wait for him to get comfortable so he better step it up now and make the most of his dream coming true, 2 injuries close to playoff time, cmon Ned, this is your chance to earn the big $ next year and be a hero.
  9. never heard of Skeki. Anyone know anything about him? should we be excited for this dude? 2 dmen and a center today. not bad. Lets go Ned, your time to shine. Ned needs to realize that he could lead us to and win a Stanley Cup and earn the starter job for next year(Cam Ward style).
  10. Or him bending, reaching and leaning when he defends or fore checks instead of moving his feet and using his body. You will always be 3 steps behind in the NHL if you do that crap. Or taking a shot and than taking 3 seconds to look up in the air and pout about it not going in, meanwhile you missed the bus there is already another play going on while you pout. He must be doing something different though in Minn, he has been producing at a high rate over there.
  11. Well this is the first time I can remember us 11 games over .500 midseason since.............................maybe 2006 or somethin. And we are still only 1 point into the wild card spot. Just our luck, we finally get good and so did everyone else.
  12. The best news of the weekend is the bounce back from Reims and Mrazek after a shaky December for both. They both have the ability to take us all the way. Rough stretches will happen with any goaltender, its a hard job. Its all about bouncing back and having more good stretches than rough ones. Great to see even though both were shaky we still got some wins in December because its a team game and guys stepped up and got it done when the goaltending was mediocre Havent been able to say that in 10 yrs
  13. This team has got me nervous. I don't like the streakiness. I don't like that when we do win it's a high scoring game on both sides. Defense and Goaltending has got to come around, we can't keep hoping for 5 plus goals every game. At least we have offense this year for the most part. The pieces are there and the coach is there. Not sure whats missing. And J. Staal man, where is he at lately? Doing that slow bend over and reach for the puck thing that his brother did the last couple years instead of moving his feet and going at it 110percent. hopefully just a rough few weeks and we get back to .700 hockey now.
  14. Right on, If Forslund is talking about it than it's happening. John would never spread a rumor unless he knew it was true. I mean guys like Roddy, J. Staal, Forslund probably keep in touch with J. Williams on the regular and have known this is happening for a while.
  15. If not announced today than Elliot Friedman loses a lot of credibility with his rumor announcements and I believe nothing about Williams returning. So far hasn't it only been Friedman that announced anything and the rest of the NHL ran with it?
