  1. Well said! There is so much I want to say but I think everyone pretty much encapsulated the feeling among Caniac nation on this board. From sitting in a half empty PNC arena earlier this year with another year missing the playoffs on the doorstep, to the playoff push and eventually ECF is a bit overwhelming if you really think about it. This team has some true hard-nose fans despite what the talking heads say. I will always embrace an “us against the world” fighting mentality for us to get the respect we deserve. Some new fans will drop in and off depending on our future success but that’s to be expected. This was a fun year with a special bunch of jerks and great fans like you all 👍🏽
  2. Kicked off my hockey offseason by watching my Cubbies spank the Nationals 14-6 at Nats Park. Baseball isn’t doing it right now though. Already missing the greatest show on ice #TakeWarning
  3. I think we have a good thing going. Tweaks and some reasonable additions/subtractions? Sure! Any major overhauls? Not really unless we get the right fit for the areas of need. Don’t need to make any big splashes for the sake of it. I like the direction we are going but yes, we need improvement in the known key areas.
  4. Hopefully more of us out-of-towners can contribute the frenzy in the PNC lots going forward. Can’t wait for next season. Hope to see some of you again.
  5. Had a blast this season folks. Thanks to the powers here for letting us do GDT and express all kinds of thoughts.... both valid and crazy. I’ll be front and center on opening night next season, and a few more road games. 👍🏽🍻
  6. People here in the DMV know who the Canes are now. I’ll wear my jersey proud here for some time (as always).
  7. Now let’s all get along. We’re all ****** 😡 right now but we all love the same team. We’re all passionate about what goes on. We’ll be back next year. 👍🏽
  8. Thought we would do better today but no dice. It’s been one hell of a season. Put this series behind you, take a break and enjoy the summer, and let’s get amped for next season.
  9. I agree. The PP is just one of a long list of “to do” or “to fix” items. 📝
  10. As bad as our PP is we need to do our best to take advantage of it. It’s no secret that obtaining a real PP has to be a top bullet item for the offseason. Accountability needs to be taken over this bleeding gaping cut in our game. Why not start now 👍🏽
  11. Tonight is all about tonight. Take it period by period... shift by shift. Win each face off, each puck along the boards, and play loose. Can’t focus on anything else other than period 1.
  12. History goes both ways... like blowing a 3-0 series lead in 2010, losing the Finals in 17 seconds (mine and a few others personal favorite) in 2013, getting the floor wiped with you by the Habs 2014 after winning the Pres trophy.
  13. Vs 8:00 PM EDT - PNC Arena Raleigh, NC We here we are again. Choose your phrase...brink of elimination...end of the road...backs against the wall...do or die...whatever. It's all true. We know the story here, and we know the drill. The Canes are in an undesirable 0-3 series hole against a nasty Boston Bruins team that would love to break the brooms out Thursday night at PNC Arena. We all know the Boston Bruins blew a 3-0 series lead to the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 playoffs. It was also Justin Williams' Los Angeles Kings who were the last team to come back from an 0-3 deficit. That was against the San Jose Shark in 2014. The Flyers would go on to the Stanley Cup finals. The Kings would go on to win it all. Do the Canes have that type of magic within them to be the next miracle on ice? We don't know. It doesn't look good. There are encouraging signs this series, but there are more menacing things about the way Carolina has come up short. Pick your reason. But hey, what the heck! Why not us?? Let's see what happens. Live to fight another day. One thing is for sure. Despite the outcome of Thursday night's tilt and this series, we are proud of what this club has accomplished. We don't want the ride to end now though. We don't want the music to stop. No Boston celebration on our ice! Keep that record on loop because we can't end the party just yet. JUST WIN!
  14. How many “evil empires” have been referenced on this board? I would assume by now it includes any team not named the Carolina Hurricanes. 😁
  15. Thursday is for pride... let’s see if we can take the Bruins on a trip down 2010 memory lane.
