    We’re about 2 years away from being really exciting offensively.

    1..2..3 years, we still have the “under construction 🚧” notice on our property. The empire takes time to build.  Good stuff .

    Someone on NBC said Dundon said he’d rather lose 5-4 than win 2-1. That was in reference to a defenseman, but still. If Askarov had still been available and we took Jarvis, I think some heads would have exploded. Of course, I wanted Askarov, but ...

    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.

    Unfortunately, aren't Canes games on NHLTV blacked out for "local" viewers? (I'm 1.5 hours away and considered local) I'm guessing that would rule it out for maybe 90% of the members on this site? 

    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

    Recently started with YouTube TV because they had all the sports channels I wanted. I got an email last night that they are dropping Fox regional sports channels effective October 1. Might have to uncut the cord when hockey starts back.

    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...

    I think they want to trade Athanassiou  for  Mrazek .    Funny they wanted him  and now they dont  .    Makes me think there is more to the story  than not . 

    Kind of like our Erik Haula situation with less clarity.

  6. 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.

    Watched another video the other night, forgot to mention it here but...


    Apparently we inquired about Laine but it didn’t go far, I knew about that already.


    What I didn’t know is that we reportedly talked to Boston about Jake DeBrusk. 

    FWIW I only watch/talk about videos that use the usual confirmed sources (Dreger, Friedman, etc.), not videos where it is Joe Shmoe making up his own stuff. 

    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.

    I just listened to the whole podcast.  To sum it up:


    1) The NHL is a league of parity.  The Canes can win The Cup.  So can most of the other teams.

    2) Svechnikov is going to be there for 20 years.

    3) Couldn't get a deal done with Forslund.  Move on with Mike.

    That’s a no-BS, no soft stuff approach that’s right on point.  That’s the way you gotta deliver it.

  9. 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.

    Dallas is done...they can’t get out of their own way, and Seguin/Benn each need to be hit by a bus.

    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.

    If Holtby is brought on for anything more than a cheap, 1 year contract  I will have lost all faith in the group's ability.  That guy has been on the down slide for 3 years.  Yay, he won a cup but he will be any team's whipping boy that signs him for 5+ million over multiple years.

    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.  

  12. 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.

    OK things have boiled over on the politics. This is a very emotional and heated topic, but we're trying not to be twitter on here. It is impossible not to let political leanings creep into posts on this topic, but it IS possible not to take blatant swipes and naked attacks on a political figure or viewpoint. 


    So, I've hidden everything related to attacking Trump or any other political figure for the last few pages. I was slow to the draw. 


    Resorting to blatant political attacks is intellectually lazy IMO. Everyone on here is smart enough to make their points without going there. Please do that. 

    Can’t all this be solved over a Zoom ice cream 🍦  “social”? 🤷🏻‍♂️😎
