  1. Possibly. They showed him on the jumbotron and he waved. I couldn't tell where in the stands he was. Seemed like every time the Checkers got anything going at all, they ended up in the penalty box. Jamie McGinn (i had actually forgottten about that signing until seeing him in warmups) didn't even make it through the first period before picking up a non-reciprocated 5-minute major and game misconduct. Wish i could have seen that one a little better because it looked like a good hit from my perspective, but we were high up this time and i got little from the one just-as-high replay they showed as well. Nobody really stood out in any fashion good or bad except Ned, who gave the guys a chance to win despite facing 42 shots, including 24 in the 2nd. Team was sharp to start but after losing McGinn, they were fair-to-middling. Finally turned it back on in the last 2 minutes with Ned pulled for the extra attacker, but too little too late. Actually thought it might happen but Kuok lost an edge and lost possession of the puck and the Phantoms cleared the zone, the end.
  2. I'm with you there. Partly because home game and all, but partly because those things haven't started growing on me yet. Can we go back to requesting black on the road?
  3. Hockey trivia - some teams use power plays as opportunities to score goals, being as they have more players on the ice than the other team. I think the Hurricanes should give that concept some thought.
  4. Next penalty Nino takes, he's skating laps through the entire practice.
  5. The white jerseys suck. Let's go back to wearing black on the road.

  7. Not sure i see the shaming, at least in that article. People 'rallying to defend' him, but what are they defending him against? Where's the so-called trashing?
  8. When does our 5-on-3 start?
  9. It's possible but one thing i do know for sure, the results of the game itself holds a lot more weight in the standings than anyone's prediction.
  10. It's partly due to the Canes having played more games than Buffalo, Colorado, Edmonton, and Boston, but they're back in 1st place in the NHL.
  11. We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.
  12. Yell them on for me in the 3rd, whoever's still around. I can't make it.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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,
  18. I dislike that the one guy you left out was probably the best goaltender we've faced yet.
  19. Let's not and say we did.
