  1. We’re seeing a parity of options and (hopefully) balance that we haven’t seen before in some time. I’m not overly concerned about a couple players being quiet from time to time as long as others are stepping up and getting the job done. Seeing how they respond is entertaining in itself, and I think they will. ✅
  2. California Dreamin' Vs Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA October 15, 2019 - 10:30 PM Here we are! It's our first Western trip of the year. The Carolina Hurricanes (5-1-0) will kick off the season's first notable foray outside the Eastern Time Zone when they visit the Los Angeles Kings (2-3-0) Tuesday night at Staples Center. Carolina will look to rebound from a disappointing home loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. The Kings lost 5-2 to Las Vegas on Sunday night in LA. The Canes and Kings have played each other fairly even in recent years. Both teams split last season's contests; LA taking the first meeting 2-0 on December 2, 2018 at Staples Center and the Canes crowning the Kings 6-1 on February 26, 2019 at PNC Arena. This is the typical case of two clubs going in opposite directions. Los Angeles would be hard-pressed to be considered a shell of their championship days earlier in the decade. Carolina has risen from the ashes of obscurity into a real NHL threat. The common denominator: Justin Williams, whom is playing for neither team at the moment. Carolina has been playing spectacular hockey to start the season. However, trips to the sin bin have been an achilles heel for them thus far. Thankfully, penalty killing has been strong, but this will be something to watch and work on as the season progresses. Another area to watch: Sebastian Aho. Personally, I am not worried as I feel the lad will find his groove soon enough. Many eyes will be on him, nonetheless, to be the factor we know he can be for the Canes. Get your coffee, Red Bull, Monster, smelling salts, or whatever keeps your eyes open. You'll wanna stay up for this one!

  3. Blow the team up! We suck! Fire Rod.
  4. Have to laugh a little. Was hitting the blogs, Instagram, and some of the other feeds out there on the interweb. The doom and gloom I see from some Canes fans over losing our first game would actually make most of us rational fans roll our eyes and chuckle. Not sure if it is "pie in the sky" thinking, lack of fandom experience (lack of winning), or just smoking illegal substances. Not preaching to the choir or anyone in here, but WE WILL have some stinkers this year. Last night was one. There will be more. Im just a little amazed that there are some "fans" that think we should go 82-0. It's almost not even worth posting about it but I thought it might provide some of you a chuckle as well. I'll say this, I want us to stay as away from that Pres Trophy for obvious reasons.
  5. CORRECTION: If someone told me we’d be 5-1 after 6 I’d gladly take it 👏🏽. We’ll get back on track.
  6. Well that comment was far from a guarantee. I know better than that. I still stand by it though, should have won but we didn't.
  7. Oh well...there will be days like this. Shake it off.
  8. Those road whites are growing on me (no, not literally 😎).
  9. That game wasnt what the final reflected. Game was tied until 1 min left in the game. LA added 2 empty netters.
  10. The plot thickens....should be a dandy 3rd. We'll win.
  11. Before Rod became coach, I wouldn't have minded Torts on our bench. No complaints now though!
