  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.
  15. I took the Laine talk to be nothing more than offseason banter and mere curious inquiry on our part. Sometimes you toss the bait out and see what bites. We'll see what pans out here in the near future.
  16. That’s a no-BS, no soft stuff approach that’s right on point. That’s the way you gotta deliver it.
  17. I’m not an overly sentimental guy but I wish JF the best. Games won’t quite be the same but I know MM will knock it out of the park in his own way. Can’t wait for our guys to get back out in the ice, fans or no fans.
  18. Dallas was seeing Stars ✨ after game 3, which ultimately when this series was over. It was a good try. Maybe there’s some more excitement left if they can eke one out here to extend the series.
  19. Toronto lost to a zamboni driver in case anyone forgot. Just sayin... 🤷🏻‍♂️😎
  20. Like many blunders here in the nation’s capital going far back, it was a self-induced f-up. They derailed their own train.
  21. To me, he is in Corey Crawford or Tukka Rask territory career-wise. Serviceable for a bit longer not a mainstay. As snake-bitten as the Caps fan base is, they’re turning against him isn’t surprising so I throw all that emotion out the window.
  22. Saw some banter on the Caps board (take that FWIW) that the Canes might be a potential suitor for Holtby. The feeling in Cap-land was last night was definitely his last game for DC. I’m not putting much stock into it nor am I hoping to dig up any past/duplicate discussions about it if unbeknownst to me. However, would love to hear other thoughts.
  23. Can’t all this be solved over a Zoom ice cream 🍦 “social”? 🤷🏻‍♂️😎
  24. Hey crew. Been a long time since I’ve hopped on here. Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy-physically and mentally 👍🏽. Any rumor or chatter when when we’re going to be seeing NHL face masks/coverings? The NFL and NBA already have them on their respective online shop sites.
