    Julia Rowe

    my thoughts and prayers go out to the Rowe family in this tragic time. are they still selling the bracelets, or was it just for the team?
  4. makes me dislike Sundin more now..he's acting like a chump
  5. This is probably a dumb question...but why is everyone waiting on Sundin??
  6. go canes go is correct...williams scored the icing on the CAKE goal..how sweet it is...
  7. i would consider Stillman a scoring threat as well...
  8. yeah we can't trade away a top 9 forward, larose, kaberle, and a prospect for o'sullivan's rights sounds good to me..and being from carolina, im sure he'd love to come here.
  9. If the asking price isnt to much, im sure we'll sign him
  10. If we are still talking about pits in this thread, i found this on ESPN.COM last night about one of the analysts grading the first days trades. Trade of the day It wasn't just the free agents who were busy on Day 1 of the NHL's silly season. The Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers pulled off an honest-to-goodness hockey trade just before the market opened. The two 2006 Stanley Cup finalists, who haven't been back to the playoffs since, both took steps in making sure that trend ends next season. After acquiring veteran offensive defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky from Los Angeles for Jarret Stoll on Monday, the Oilers added youngster Gilbert Brule from Columbus for Raffi Torres, and then moved restricted free agent Joni Pitkanen to Carolina for proven scorer Erik Cole on Tuesday. Cole, who played with Cory Stillman and Eric Staal during most of the regular season leading up to the Hurricanes' Cup run, is a proven 25- to 30-goal producer. He will see plenty of power-play time and help give the Oilers three lines of scoring depth. Pitkanen, on the other hand, gives the Hurricanes a badly needed puck-moving defenseman who can join the rush and help out on the power play. With the acquisition of Joe Corvo from Ottawa at the trade deadline, Carolina now has two offensive defensemen, something they haven't had in many years. Critics say Pitkanen hasn't developed the way he should have given he was the fourth overall pick in the 2002 draft, but Carolina GM Jim Rutherford told ESPN.com he thinks Pitkanen is just starting to mature. "I think he's a better player than he's gotten credit for being," Rutherford said. The Hurricanes also re-signed former prospect Anton Babchuk, another big defenseman (6-foot-5) with a big shot, in an effort to remake a Carolina blue line that lost Glen Wesley and Bret Hedican. Grade: B+
  11. yeah i know, just wondering what everyone thought..half of that stuff is just people trying to stir the thinkin pot
  12. i know this doesn't really make a lick of sense but, someone on the hockeybuzz thread is saying "ONE SOURCE HAS TOLD ME THAT PRELIMINARY DISCUSSIONS HAVE INVOLVED MARLEAU AND PICKS FOR COLE AND PICKS!!!! A DEAL ISN'T IMMINENT, BUT IT'S VERY POSSIBLE!!!!!!! MORE TO COME SOON!!!!! "
