    Born and raised in Chicago, Ill and growing up as a devout Blackhawks fan, I took an immediate interest in the Canes when they (Whalers at the time, of course) came south while I was living in North Carolina. Also, I am an East Carolina University graduate...go Pirates! I fell in love with NC hockey and shifted loyalties my fellow Chicagoans would not approve of!

    I am a hardcore Canes fan now living in the greater Washington D.C. area. I attend every game I can when back in the Tarheel state, or even on the road. Whether it's reliving the "Shock at the Rock" or Scott Walker's Game 7 goal on YouTube, or recalling them raising the Cup in 2006, or the Game 7 win stunner over the Caps, I can't get enough Canes. Repping Caniacs here in Caps-land!

  1. The Pietrangelo deal is going to suck for LVGK in 5-6 years. Too long, but thats the risk they want to take.
  2. I like the pickup. This guy can play. Solid business 👍🏽
  3. Too many memories to mention. The only ugly thing about JW's NHL career is wearing a Caps jersey, but we can overlook that now. He will be missed. I hope one day he can remain/become part of the organization in some manner.
  4. 1..2..3 years, we still have the “under construction 🚧” notice on our property. The empire takes time to build. Good stuff .
  5. We have said it collectively for years. Sure it’s a no brainer, but still a very valid goal. We’re getting there...
  6. Well, we need to be able to outscore teams in high-scoring game on nights the defense and goalie are not there, but we need to keep pucks out of net and not let our opponents have open season on our netminders. Perfect balance we need, but I’ll always take offense when we can get it.
  7. We don’t need a goalie anyway. We’re just going to outscore the opposition at all cost 😎👍🏽
  8. Not bummed at all about this pick, considering the remaining field. We get some more offense.
  9. The guy is a scorer. We’ll see how it translates here in the big boy league.
  10. That’s cold... literally and figuratively. No Stanley Cup winning goalie deserves that kind of banishment 😬
  11. Yes, that is quite possible and noted. I know there is a notable contingent of fans on here that are not within the market airwaves. For us, NHLTV is a strong option. I honestly don't know where the airwave boundaries are from the Raleigh area that punch your ticket as being blacked-out or not, so please forgive my lack of knowledge from that perspective. As part of due diligence, one would have to confirm those details before signing up
  12. FWIW, I have had my NHLTV subscription for three seasons now. I've been pretty happy with it, especially being outside the Canes market. I do like the fact I can choose the Carolina broadcasts, and not be subjected to the opponent's broadcast (some are worse than others). I have the broad subscription so I can watch other games (some subject to blackout depending on what market you're in), but the single team package is effective. As I am often not able to plop down in front of my TV, I live the accommodation to mobile devices, given you have access to enough bandwidth to decently stream a game. Not a sales pitch, just my 2 cents...
  13. Kind of like our Erik Haula situation with less clarity.
  14. I wish Skip the best as he rides off into the sunset. That's a heck of a history, including a roller-coaster of ups and down with the organization struggles (both in Hartford and Raleigh), team relocations, and eventual Stanley Cup glory. If there is someone who can claim to have "seen it all" in the hockey world, I think it would be Skip. As mentioned previously by others, I hope there is some official recognition for him in the near future.
