  1. Like the Titanic, this ship was steered in a whole new direction with not just the personnel, but the so-called culture change. Like it or not, this is the course we’re locked into for a bit and we’ll see how good our iceberg detection system is!
  2. Yeah I get it...it was an attempt of humor at the moment. I respect opinions of others and there may be some validity to us needing to part from him. Also I understand he wants/needs a fresh start. From a business standpoint this is a **** ? of a deal and I agree with many that Buffalo took us to the cleaners on it. You know, whatever. It is what it is and we’ll move on. I’ll reserve any further feelings on it after we see how things pan out.
  3. Let’s step back from the ledge and show Skins some empathy for a moment. How would you like to be told you’re getting banished to Buffalo? ?
  4. Was going to post a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot rant but then I remembered how many playoff games we won with Jeff. ??‍♂️
  5. Simple. Southern teams haven’t been around long enough for the franchises and fan bases to be crappy toward each other. In addition, the dynamics are different. I welcome the day we can be a thorn in another team’s side.
  6. Yeah, I’m still trying to process this. Chicago expects Crawford to come back healthy this year and need a decent backup without breaking the bank. J F Berube and a couple other netminders they had last year were pure garbage. Wardo makes sense behind CC. For us this spells total buy-in to Darling. The die is cast and Darling has no one to bail him out. This is an excellent opportunity for some other options like Ned. We had to move on from Cam eventually. I kind of feel indifferent and somewhat optimistic. BTW... go Pirates!
  7. Once we stop being our own rival, we may be able to talk about other teams. I am looking forward to those days as well.
  8. Anyone else hearing Cam Ward to Chicago? If I’m by chance behind on this or it’s posted elsewhere let me know. I admit I have some thread catching up to do... https://www.secondcityhockey.com/2018/6/28/17516650/blackhawks-sign-cam-ward-1-year-2-5-million-deal-contract-terms-nhl-2018
  9. Hope he likes rain, seafood, and coffee ☕️
  10. This is good. The status quo wasn’t working.
  11. I know some folks are commenting on the "blandness" of the front logo. Nothing is worse than jersey that is on the "busy" side that prompts seizure warnings (see Coyotes throwback) or makes you reach for the barf bag. I get the comments on the should area though. Not a bad jersey...perhaps could be better but could be worse. Some of the other prototypes were promising but it is what it is. Keep it simple, keep it black.
  12. Good stuff! I'm going to get my new 3rd jersey with Svech on it. I'm beyond pumped for this season to start...dammit!!!
  13. I don’t get caught up in emotion or nastalgia. He’s our coach now and I’m ready to get next season on!
  14. Kind of sad to see Krugs go but it was the right move. I am somewhat familiar with Marty and excited to see what he can do.
  15. I was halfway being sarcastic but there may be some validity in the notion.
  16. All we need to do is add The “Ageless Wonder” Jagr to this mix of young talent and we have a winning solution! ??
  17. In all seriousness this is excellent news and a great break for us. I agree with the overall notion here that we don’t need to screw this up. This will be exciting!
  18. You mean the Slugs finally beat us in something?
  19. Can you blame him? When you see an opportunity, pounce on it!
  20. The pros and cons of old faces vs new blood for coach are now at war.
  21. Nothing unexpected here. I express my gratitude to Bill in that he tried and worked with what he had for the most part. He made the right move for him and the best of the team and for that, I can respect. I wish him the best. I am with a sense of relief in that maybe we can turn the page and get a new energy with the team. A new bench boss doesn’t solve all problems but it is a cornerstone to a new direction. Im just catching up on news and the message board posts, but any mention of Daryl Sutter? I like Rods passion and also think he is a worthy candidate.
  22. A helping factor in that is the Central is nowhere near what it use to be. STL, Chicago, Dallas are sitting at home this April. However, mucho credit to the Avs though. Once/if perennial Metro powers like Washington and Pitt decline, I think the Canes have a better shot.
  23. Just read about this. Really puts life and our priorities in perspective. Thoughts and prayers indeed.
