  1. Gardiner stinks up the ice, so TVR gets benched for the night. Makes sense to me.
  2. So RB pronounces Necas 'NECK-ash'.
  3. Can't argue with that, however at the same time his offense is supposedly his selling point, so that's 2 fronts he's failing on. It's possible it's a Hamilton situation where he's playing through injury and will turn it around when he heals, but to that i'll say the same thing i said about Hamilton - give him a few games off to get there. We're rolling out 7 d-men for Pete's (Tom's) sake, so it isn't like we don't have enough defensemen to let the guy rest. If he isn't injured, meanwhile, then he simply sucks. Either way, a few games off wouldn't be a bad thing. Hoping if Gibbons draws in that it's in his place,, not in TVR's or Fleury's.
  4. I had a Leafs fan tell me the same, and i said he couldn't be any worse than Queso. He's already given me an 'i told you so' or two.
  5. Good thing the Canes are so good at staying out of the box.
  6. I still think Puljujarvi has potential, but you don't pay for potential. Until he realizes that potential on North American ice, he's worth Derek Ryan money. And by that i mean Hurricane contract Derek Ryan money, which obviously he wasn't willing to play for.
  7. Well at least it isn't one of our current 'on fire' forwards like Nino or McGinn... Oy...
  8. Jordan Staal played tonight? And where's his hair?
  9. For sure, but that should give a good idea of how impressed i've been with Gardiner.
  10. Agreed. Wallmark has more value to the Canes right now than anything they could get for him. He isn't the problem.
  11. Glad to see Fleury get a couple games, but it should have been Gardiner sitting instead of TVR.
  12. Holy crap, someone's actually wearing one of those awful white sweaters in the stands. Don't see too many of those.
  13. Meh, that one was iffy. It's hockey...
  14. So anyone know if Austin Watson is related to Bryan or Jim/Joe?
  15. Bishop's and Eetu's NHL stats are quite comparable, with Eetu being a little better on faceoffs but Bishop a little more-inclined to hit. Bishop is more defensively-sound in Charlotte and is also a mainstay on the PK, which is an aspect to his game that hasn't really been tapped into in the NHL. Eetu should bring more scoring, but despite doing a lot of things right, so far hasn't. I can't make the call as to who is the better option long-term, but i do think Bishop showed as much last season as Eetu's shown this season. https://www.rotoworld.com/hockey/nhl/player/27120/eetu-luostarinen/stats https://www.rotoworld.com/hockey/nhl/player/26193/clark-bishop/stats
  16. I've been a fan of Bishop's from the first time i saw him play with the Chex. I concur with all of the speculation that his ceiling is 4th-line/PK, but i think he has the potential to be one of the best 4th/PK specialists we've had. I approve of this callup...
  17. My debate with the "time to move Nino" is the 'sell low' principle - his value is probably the lowest now that it's been since the Canes acquired him. Of course it's hard to make yourself trade someone when they're on a peak, but 9 times out of 10, trading the guys who are disappointing you are going to get you more guys who disappoint you.

  19. I don't know how coaching contracts work, but wouldn't that be just cause for terminating the contract and not being on the hook to continue paying Peters?
  20. Sub-record divisional opponents...
  21. Not sure i would have called that TO. They don't know what to do by now...
