    By the way, Sabres/Pens just went final: Eichel unassisted at :45 of OT for the win, 5-4. Skinner with a primary assist on an earlier goal for his 21st point in 20 games. 

    Nobody dislikes the slugs more than I do but you have to give them

    some credit. They are looking good right now.

    ...to see them become the Candy Canes has been ridiculous. 

    Ain’t that the truth! I support this team through-and-through and like many here, we are hard in our criticisms (much of deserved) because we care. Sometimes you have to call it like it is. We’re a soft team that, I believe, Rod is trying to make tougher.  That’s why I comment in delight when I see us being the bully. When my Original 6 friends and family ask if I’m still pulling for the “Candy Canes” I want to reach out and touch them 🥊 but haven’t been able to argue with the term when many times I see our guys shy away from a scrum or refuse to work the corners along the boards for pucks. Most of us who grew up in environments where weakness and soft play draws ire and disdain don’t like seein our teams be that way...

     

    I want to see them rough the Leafs up Wednesday.

    They did find their game. If Darling had been in the crease, they'd have won.

    I felt we were fairly physical with NJ last night. I think that also kept them just enough off their offensive game such that it prevented them from scoring the equalizer. Surely many would agree that the more physical we are, our odds of winning go up noticeably.  You can’t always sustain that type of bruising physicality over long stretches but you can apply it at the right times. That should be ingrained into our mentality. Nothing is more shameful than a soft response when the opponent is smashing your players.

  4. There is some sentiment that Q lost the locker room. This seems very familiar to LA’s departure with Darryl Sutter sans all the drawn-out dramatics.  Anytime something this major happens you’re going to have a wide array of theories, conspiracies, and opinions. Fact remains Q is one of the best in the business and I’m sure he’ll prosper wherever he lands next... if he decides to continue coaching.


  5. Watching Buffalo vs NYR right now. Not many more teams and fanbases I dislike more than the slugs.... but the Rags are in the Metro and direct competition. Skinner looks terrible in that Buffalo uni.

     

    Update: Buffalo outshoots the Rags 40-21 and still lose by 2 goals. That seems awfully familiar ?...

    Sup everyone, greetings from behind enemy lines in Caps territory (gross)!

    Whoa! Another Caniac in Caps-land? Glad it’s not just me! Sorry for the late response. Belated welcome, my friend. ???

    I wouldn't walk across the street to be in the same building with Rags fans.

    I hear ya... too much blue for my liking but I want to be a good soldier and rep the team in enemy territory whenever possible. Maybe we’ll get our first win in forever at the Garden then, if not on the 1/15 meeting.  I’ll be there with a particular Rangers fan so I’m sure she will get her share of abuse being seen with me.... with or without my Canes sweater on ??‍♂️?


  8. Reading more about this in the Seattle Post today (actually an Oct 2 publication). I really hope the process is smooth and all goes well.  I am seriously planning my trip to The Northwest when the Canes make their first visit. Great city and an exciting NHL future.

    Its no longer Dunkin' Donuts. They're dropping Donuts from their name.:rofl:

    And that has me angrier than Hartford folks being poked in the eye with Whaler gear in Raleigh. Respect the Whale ?.... respect the donut ?!! ?
