  1. Keeping everyone in the Raleigh area in our prayers.
  2. *Sniff, sniff* Well, at least he will still be with the organization. I couldn't see him NOT being a part of the Hurricanes. I will miss him on the ice, but can't wait to see what JR has planned. *Bawling my head off now*
  3. I hope so. It would be an even sadder day than it already is if the organization didn't make a place for him. He's done a lot for this team over the years and he deserves it.
  4. I don't see where we got another 2nd round pick. And I think Pothier was just a giveaway to get Osala and the pick. Edit: NM, I see it now.
  5. Wow, this one blindsided me, but if it'll give Scotty a cup shot, so be it. I will miss him bunches, but would love to see him hoist the Cup.
  6. We definitely got more than I thought. I would like to see Matt come back after the season ends, but.................in this business you never know.
  7. The press conference is in 5 minutes, but here's the story...... http://www.charlotteobserver.com/topstories/story/1237388.html WOOHOO!!!!
  8. Here's another article I found about it.... http://www.troyrecord.com...70fa365dd63007510580.txt
  9. As a Canes fan near Charlotte, I am STOKED that we may get an AHL team here. No offense to the Checkers, but the cost of the tickets to their games is not worth it. We only get to a Canes game once or twice a year due to costs(cost of tickets, plus gas to drive up and back) so to be able to see a good game at a good price with minimal gasoline expended would definitely let us see quite a few games more than we can now. Don't get me wrong, we watch ALL the televised Canes games, but it's not the same as being there. To see the up-and-comers play live would be great. I could definitely say that if the cost is right, AHL season tickets could be in my future. Some of our friends feel the same way. I feel bad for Albany, but excited for us.
  10. No other hints about this? Anyone hear anything else???
  11. Could a thread make me laugh any harder?? No way!!!! This is the most hysterical thing I've seen in a while. Pssst........hey Edmonton, your losing streak has to come to an end sooner or later. You don't want everyone else thinking your tanking on purpose or anything.
  12. I'd be so ok with it. Having an AHL team down here would do so much for this town.
  13. Since I have one opinion, and you have another, caniac247.....lets just agree to disagree, period. I'm not getting into a contest of who's wrong or who's right.
  14. [quote name='caniac247 wrote: Justicemsb wrote: Faceoff-ch1']I think you are reading that statement incorrectly. He is not saying anything about Rod's capabilities in this situation, this statement is NOT about Rod. I have heard nothing but positive and respectful statements from JR about Rod's leadership. You are putting the wrong words in his mouth. He is implying it is easy to lead when things are going well. Anyone could assume leadership during the 05-06 season and done it successfully because it was not a challenge. But - leadership becomes much more challenging during the bad times. This is a good time for Staal to step in and start to learn and develop as the symbolic leader. He has Rod and Ray there to mentor him. He has nothing to lose because the season is not salvageable anyway. That is why the timing is right. Nothing at all to do with Rod's capabilities. Ok, so if I misread that statement(somehow I doubt it, but I'll give you the benefit), how many OTHERS will misread it?? As I said, JR needs to THINK before he speaks. Look.......I know that there comes a time when change will happen, it's inevitable and not necessarily a bad thing. But to do it in the way it was done, no matter what was said by whom, speaks volumes. No offense, but you are the first person i've come across that misread JRs statement. So I'll take a wild guess and say no others misread it. No offense to YOU(and yes, you did offend me), but I'm the only one that is saying anything about it. I'm sure there are plenty of people that SUPPOSEDLY read into it exactly what I did. Doesn't matter to me whether they speak up or not. I said it and I don't think I misread anything.

  16. Nice message to send.........basically saying that Brind'Amour has no clue what being a Captain is about and Staal does? Most of what Staal knows he was taught by Brind'Amour. Seems to me that JR needs to learn how to think before he speaks(the words "open mouth, insert foot" come to mind). Don't get me wrong, I know that change can be a good thing, but to do it now was a slap in the face, saying without actually saying the words "I have no confidence in you any longer, you have to go". I don't care what the press says Brind'Amour said, it HAD to hurt. It hurts me. I cried, I got angry. I would HOPE that JR has the sense to keep him when he retires, in a coaching or leadership capacity. If not, there are other teams that will snatch him up in a heartbeat.
