  1. It’s like a hemorrhoid that flares up at the most inopportune time... this poor play when the season is in the line
  2. True, the Triangle area is heavy college but one could also say that about the entire state. Rightfully so, as the first pro franchise didnt exist until the late 80's. I love Charlotte and think it is a great sports town, but we know Raleigh can fill the arena if/when a decent product is on the ice. We're not having this discussion back in 2006 or if the Canes weren't in a 10-year playoff drought.
  3. Cam has been logging some good play for the Hawks as of late. I’m happy to see Cam back on the big stage for a day.
  4. Every other team in tank mode is subscribing to the “Hughes” motto. Given our luck, we will screw that up too. Maybe something good comes from a merciless season. Here’s to hoping 🥃
  5. We’re a budget team ... like a Sams Club version of a major appliance. Looks good but not quite up to par with a real machine.
  6. I think Rod is a decent coach and a good hockey guy. It’s too soon to make a judgement on him. He will make some blunders, as to be expected y a rookie coach. Those get amplified when the team isn’t doing well. The talent on this team is lacking and that isn’t all in the coach.
  7. Raleigh is a growing city and I think it “might” be doable in the future. Growing up in Chicago, having to go into the city to see any sporting event was always a PITA but fans will go anywhere if you’re winning. Personally I love driving right up to PNCs front door. The pine forest campus feel (vs skyscrapers 🏙 and city traffic) has always been a nice non-traditional feel I have enjoyed with relative ease. If TD wants a more urban setting I have no issues with that either if is good the economy and levies independence from NC States scheduling.
  8. The McCaskey’s and the old man Wirtz come to mind here.
  9. Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 fellow Caniacs. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the day. Today we enjoy time with family and friends and hopefully not get a lump of coal 😈 . Can’t wait for the boys to get back into it after the holiday. Go Canes!!!
  10. Chicago is 4-1-1 in its last 6 games partially due to Wardo. Cam looked elite against Dallas and outclassed Ben Bishop. He never ceases to amaze me regarding the Vezina-caliber games he can still have (with the usual stinkers in between)
  11. We have a talent gap and a coaching situation that is in over its head. A trade or two is a step in the right direction
  12. I think we need guys that deliver concussions...
  13. No doubt with a healthy lineup the offense takes some shape again. Svech is earning his stripes.
  14. Hawks goalie Corey Crawford sustained another concussion in last nights loss to San Jose. I wonder if his continued health concerns, coupled with Cam Ward not being a long-term answer, will garner any interest in Mongo.
  15. Will be interesting to see if Coach Q slides in. Philly loves a tough guy.
  16. We’ll see. Winning a couple Cups seems to keep the rose-colored glasses on when it really isn’t so rosy. Both Chicago (in 2016-17) and LA (2015-16) want with that “all-in” “sacrifice the future for now” to buy an extra year or two. It’s really not a bad concept if your core is still solid. Those chances don’t present themselves too often. I think Pittsburgh is probably going to follow suit being one year removed from their last cup. They are mediocre and I think their best days are behind them. I don’t blame them from a competitive perspective from throwing all the chips in the middle of the table at this point. As far as I can tell, the East is between Tampa and Washington 😐
  17. Welcome! Don’t be shy to chime in
  18. Call it “winning streak” and even I’ll dance!
  19. I remember as a kid watching them get their doors blown off by the Minnesota North Stars, Detroit Red Wings and Edmonton Oilers. I think those days are back for the foreseeable future. However, I believe they are in full “tank” mode. I guess it’s better to languish for a while and speed up the chances of getting some top picks than to die a slow death through mediocrity (see Red Wings) with false hopes at “one last run”. I believe LA is right there with them, and Pittsburgh isn’t too far behind. You can also add the Rangers to that category.
  20. I watched the video and was in tears laughing. Tommy Hawk and the fans are having a frustrating season. In keeping up with the happenings back in Chicago, don't be surprised if that isn't the only incident. But hey, Johnny Teows, Duncan Keith, and Brent Seabrook are getting paid mega-bucks $$$ to under-perform.
  21. We're a soft, delicate team with some good players but not enough skill and consistency to hang with the big boys on a nightly basis. I'm still in a daze how last night's game was coached at the end, and the lapses we see with this team. There is too much going on here that is not right, and I'm not one to
  22. I’m sure we’ve seen our share of Mickey Mouse hockey over the years. Fittingly we didn’t play it in DisneyLand last night.
