  1. Yell them on for me in the 3rd, whoever's still around. I can't make it.
  2. I'm seeing a lot of concern for Aho's slow start here and elsewhere but in his 4th season in the league he's had what, one season where he didn't start off slow? I don't think it's time to schedule an intervention just yet. He'll warm up.
  3. Small sample size but he looked good in Charlotte last night. May bring some chippiness as well. Wouldn't have been my first choice but i'm not shaking my head over it either.
  4. Full agreement with this post. 7 defenders wouldn't surprise me either with TVR being activated, and if they do call someone else up, Geekie and Bishop are the obvious choices IMO. I missed both the Friday and Saturday Canes games, though, so i can't really speak for Gauthier's Canes outings. We pretty much know what Bishop brings to the Canes, while i'd love to see Geekie get a shot. Kid has the energy and the shot, for sure.
  5. At least i got to see a win tonight. Can't win them all, though Columbus wasn't the team i wanted the first loss to come to. Shucks.
  6. First Chex game of the season for me tonight, 4-1 over Bridgeport. Pretty chippy for much of the game, particularly Sheppard, Horvat, and Gibbons. 2 goals for Geekie - obviously he was the highlight tonight. Bishop looked good as well of course, as did Eetu. No cherry-picking from Kuok tonight - he was getting into the play on both sides of the puck, though he didn't really stand out in doing so. Schilkey missed an absolute gimme but since he's with Bridgeport now, that was just fine with me. McKeown looked good when he wasn't in the box but 3 or 4 minor penalties didn't do much to contribute to the win. Sheppard and Forsling looked good on D while Bean had a rough night outside of about 2 plays - there was definitely a 'Jesus, Bean' moment or two. Claesson actually looked good as well, while Priskie was mostly invisible. Forsberg in net and he was solid - allowed one but on a missed assignment from Bean. 3 stars 3 Gibbons, 2 Forsberg, 1 Geekie,
  7. I dislike that the one guy you left out was probably the best goaltender we've faced yet.
  8. Hurricanes jumped into the top 10 on the nhl.com's power rankings at #6. The Bolts are at #3. Hi.
  9. I hate to join in on the pile-on over tonight's attendance, but gawd.
  10. Staal's hairstyle makes him look like one of the Bad News Bears.
  11. Still in first place before game time. Let's get the win and keep it that way, but maybe in regulation this time...
  12. Small sample size, but we're 1st place in the NHL right now.
  13. You aren't missing a thing as far as i'm concerned, this year or last. Excellent win! Wowsers...
  14. This. It seems to take him a dozen or so games every season to warm up. That's the one hump he has left that he needs to get over.
  15. I've actually been a little more-impressed by Fleury the past 2 nights than i have at any other point since the Canes drafted him. In any case, that Statler and Waldorf bit Tripp just orchestrated made my night.
  16. At some point Svech really needs to have that epiphany where he learns how to not take so many stick penalties.
  17. Pesce looking really good out there against Ovechkin, but we all knew he would.
  18. Kids came to play. I'm loving this.
  19. Love the fact we're throwing our backup out there at them.
  20. Looks a lot better than those things i'm seeing on the tube. Anyway, i'm home and watching. Stoked, despite the fact those new sweaters look worse to me every time i see them.
  21. He used to follow me back when i tweeted a lot about hockey, but once i got to where i only tweeted about music, he dropped me. Of course now i haven't tweeted in years.
  22. Small sample size, but i was impressed with him in a couple games i've seen over the past couple years. I wouldn't give up what we'd probably have to give up to get him, but if he could be had for say a 3rd- or 4th-rounder, i'd give him a shot.
  23. Good news waking up and reading all of this, aside from what appears to be a really bad 2nd. Did they really do a storm surge? I was hoping that would be gone. Ah well, i'm a big boy. Ready for Saturday!
