    Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, I’ve seen the Whalers at old Chicago Stadium and at the old Met Center. I was way over .500 also.

    Grew up watching the Hawks when there were at the Old Stadium, but it was usually when they were getting bullied and beaten soundly by the Red Wings, North Stars, and Oilers.  

     

    Regarding the Canes, it brings me joy to see fellow other Canes fans on the road. Now that we’re filling our home arena, no reason we can’t start making a presence in other rinks. Would love to start a road gathering here in DC area. Be loud. Be obnoxious. Be heard. 😎

     

    Thanks for bringing the Canes presence to Florida 🙌🏽


  2. I think we’re going to hear a lot of different viewpoints and angles about Jake. This is a solid move in general. I’m hesitant to over-analyze the matter until we see how he fits into our system.  As some folks have mentioned, I think a change in venue might be just what the doctor ordered for him. That bodes well in one thing that you can’t coach: motivation and fire.


  3. It was going to eventually come to this. While I would love nothing more to see JW skate for us again, it won’t last forever. Not trying to complicate the obvious but we can’t hang on to one guy forever no matter how instrumental they were. Next man up! With that said, I hope JW does what his heart and body tells him is right to do. Either way he will always Oh Captain My Captain 👍🏽


  4. Just secured tix for the Turkey Day Eve Nov 27 match at the Garden vs the Rangers. My last trip there we broke the MSG curse with a 3-0 win. Let’s keep the new streak alive!! Go Canes!!


  5. 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.

    What do you guys think about going after UFA Valtteri Filppula? Yes I know he’s getting up there in age (35) and he only registered 31 points this past season but his overall play really caught my eye in the Isles series. Seems like a Brind’Amour kinda player to me...

    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.

    What do you find exciting about it so far?  the Erik haula trade?  Or trading Darling for an aging goaltender?   I'm not to excited yet,   so far we have the same team minus goaltenders and J Williams and add Haula.  Hoping we do a lot more with forwards and get Mrazek and Aho signed right away. 

    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...

    Forsberg couldn't even crack the Hawks' lineup last season - his most-recent NHL action was in 17-18.  #4 on a depth chart that featured Ward at #2.  Ack.

    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.
