    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 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" moment on YouTube, or recalling them raising the Cup in 2006, or my man crush for Mike Commodore, I can't get enough Canes! Huge Michael Ferland fan. Repping the Caniancs in Caps-land!

  1. Thankfully many of the road games I want to go to are on/near weekends. Got the Isles and New Jersey again on the list. Many thanks to the schedulers 👍🏽
  2. Time to bump this thread again. Got tix for Oct 5 game in Washington. Will be crazy since it is Caps home opener, and against the team that ended their season in dramatic fashion. Hope to see some more Canes fans turn out in enemy territory.
  3. Doesn’t matter. We’re taking the Metro this season 😎👍🏽
  4. In addition, with Columbus falling apart losing key FAs, that’s perhaps one team that might be a little less competitive in the Metro next season. I don’t count anyone out. Another team could easily take their place but maybe those cannon blasts won’t be as annoying 🤷🏻‍♂️
  5. Its too bad. The last thing we need is mental baggage while we have a good thing going. Throw it in the Mongo bin of disappointments.
  6. Ferland with the Nasty Nucks. Maybe I'm one of the few who liked him (or the potential) for what he was "capable" of bringing. I understand the flip side as well. Wish him well back in the Pacific.
  7. First off, Happy 4th 🇺🇸 all. Glad we got Pete locked in. Been following the Canes news when possible, and I wouldn’t be surprised if more moves are in store. Still scratching my head over Montreal’s offer sheet. No-brainer for us 😏
  8. A stud in Tampa Bay...a key part of that 2015 Cup finals "triplets" team. Philly and NYI...meh. Serviceable veteran but it could go either way now.
  9. I think we'll be OK without DeHaan and I like the Haula trade. I'll take a bag of chips for Darling, I hate to say. My intent of that message was that we're trying to make moves to get better. Even if some transactions backfire (i.e. Darling 2017), I'm OK with it as long as we tried. Win some, lose some. If anyone has a crystal ball in how a new addition to the team will pan out, I wanna party with you!!! We're not done yet, so hold on...
  10. Exciting summer no matter how you look at it. At least our mgmt isnt sitting on their hands with illusions you get better by staying the course.
  11. When we win the Cup next season, this will all be trivial off-season drivel....😎
  12. Im being patient on this one before I sound off much more. Hopefully when this plays out it will have been part of a larger strategy. I know Chicago is getting serious this year now that hated STL has the cup. I know cap space and some strategy is at work on the Carolina side.
  13. Unless there is more coming from this, Chicago just fleeced the Canes. *edit*. Forsling is an iffy dman at best, couldnt help keep puck out of the net last year. Forsberg had some OK games, but they chose to ride dinosaur Cam Ward instead if that tells you anything.
  14. I like Skinner and I wish him nothing but the best personally, but I think Buffalo is and has been in a panic mode trying to hold on to/obtain any decent players. They are going to great lengths to make this happen, and I think this recent Skinner deal points to that.
