  1. The song is called "The Nights" by Avicii. If you listen on you tube it's at 1:02 into the song. It's a repetitive synthesizer riff with some Hey-Hey's in the background. PNC flashed the hey hey on the jumbotron for the crown to chant along with. Not saying anyone did. It is on the soundtrack for FIFA 15 video game I was told. The change from Song 2 is nice. Don't know if I'd say it's better but I imagine it'll grow on me since I'll start associating it with being happy after a Canes goal.
  2. Can't say I noticed if the call came from the bench or not. I'm guessing since it was 5 on 3 they weren't as tired and wanted to put the pressure back on the defense ASAP without changing.
  3. top-shelf mentioned Crosby which is what I was going to do. Seems like it's been a few years since anyone has really talked about him having concussion issues. So I'm hoping for something similar with Skinner. Yes there's obviously a chance he gets another one and is all but done. But since it seems the current return for him is so low we are better off taking the chance that he can rebound and stay healthy for us.
  4. From Mr. Eklund today. "The Canes have told teams they will take an offer they can't refuse (in other words, a MAJOR return) to pry either Jeff Skinner or the Carolina first round pick away come the Draft next week. I am hearing that at least two teams are prepared to do just that. More to come..." I take that to mean we aren't actively shopping Skinner, but we'll listen. I'd be shocked if any team would offer a major return for Skinner. The 5th pick yes. Interesting that 2 teams are "prepared" to offer something major. Given the source and the lack of info or even a hint as to who the 2 teams are I'll wait for the "more to come" before I put much credence into it. Most of the commenters doubt we'd get much for Skinner given his concussion history and last years numbers.
  5. I'd say a big contributor to our "rushing" players to the NHL is our small market/lower budget status. Instead of signing an expensive FA we put our draft pick and his entry level contract in that spot and hope he's ready enough.
  6. Went today at 5pm. Looking down and scanning the 100 sections, it appeared like 80-90% still available...yikes. On the plus side, was greeted by GM Ron Francis as soon as I walked through the doors upstairs.
  7. Wow, nice. Maybe they want to show off our new LED lighting system. Gotta say I'm very surprised they chose the Buffalo game. Two teams picked to be near the bottom.
  8. I'm fine with inviting LaRose to camp. If he does good enough to earn a spot what's there to complain about? Other than what that says about the rest of our team. If McGinn /Rask etc. are borderline ready for the move to the NHL, I'd rather Larose makes it as a 4th liner/healthy scratch so we can let the youngsters get more minutes in the AHL.
  9. No we haven't. I think everyone is just assuming the terms will get worked out.
  10. This is from Josh Rimer over on hockeybuzz: Chad Larose - Chad is making a comeback after taking a year off hockey. Chad has been skaing all summer long in hopes of landing an NHL Job. I can see Chad signing in Detroit.
  11. You were off a little. Probably transposed your numbers. The 9 forwards/dmen you listed total 42.68 million. Looking at capgeek after today's signings of Gerbe and Hainsey it looks like we are $13.82 million from the cap and have 6 spots to fill. Currently have 8 forwards signed and 6 Dmen and the 2 goalies. As far as getting Sharp I don't see it happening. They're talking about trading him for Kesler to center their 2nd line. I see us filling our roster with our RFA's and 4th line UFA's that don't cost much.
  12. Just saw this on todays rumor update from Mr. Eklund: On Ryan Miller... Sounds like things may fall into place relatively quickly here...at this point four possible teams. St Louis, San Jose, Pittsburgh and surprisingly Carolina...also told a separate trade may open up Tampa to Miller...
  13. Even if any truth to the rumor I have a hard time believing Marleau would waive his no trade clause to come here.
  14. Has there been any report or rumor about us even being interested or interviewing Bylsma? If so I haven't seen it.
  15. My view on the goalie situation. Cam obviously makes too much, especially in a back up roll. If he can find his game I'd be all for him and Khudobin sharing the load as was the plan last year. Realistically I think we ride with these 2. Khudobin starting with Ward playing every 3rd or 4th game unless Khudobin is just lights out or if Ward has a great game he could get 2 or 3 in a row. I see that as most likely because I don't see PK willing to buyout Ward's contract or eating a large portion in order to trade him, then pay another goalie on top of that. We could go cheap with Peters but I'm not sold on him as our backup. We'd be doing to Khudobin what we've done to Ward all these years. Also I'd like to see Khudobin play 50+ games and stay healthy all season before we put the franchise in his hands. Wards only trade value is the 2 times he's been in the playoffs we made it to the cup and conference finals.
