  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Timing and posture are way off too. Poor puck management, puck skipping off sticks, terrible control... I could go on. There are times when they seemed rushed and just fling toward net, then times they are holding the puck too long waiting for the “perfect” shot. They then get hampered and thrown off the puck. It’s a mess...

  6. We should collectively go in on a club suite when the Canes make their first visit. Good for thought... 😎
  7. We need people who can score. Goaltending and defense are largely present and accounted for. Other than those on IR at the current moment, nobody should feel safe. I’m not impressed with anyone on offense. I think most of us on this board could sling and fumble the puck around in the OZ just as (in)effectively as these guys.
  8. I like Darling and wish him all the best, but if this is the end of the road for him in Raleigh....
  9. I guess you didn’t pick up on my sarcasm 😏
  10. Or the fans can rush the ice and knock the goal posts down similar to a major college football upset 😉
  11. This seems to be a quite divisive topic. It has been noticed around the league and among the analysts. I'm hearing both encouragement and distaste equally. There is this old saying: "act like you've been there..."
  12. The way the Canes played last night, perhaps Duke could have done better 🤷🏻‍♂️
  13. Kind of like Yahoo putting the Duke Blue Devils logo accidentally instead of the NJ logo for Sunday’s Devils-Canes game. 😂😂 Proofing work is a lost art.
  14. Nobody dislikes the slugs more than I do but you have to give them some credit. They are looking good right now.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Put game attendance in the “ugly” column
  18. One thing is for sure, Q will never have to buy his own drinks ? and meals ? in Chicago along with a couple other guys.
  19. 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.
  20. 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 ?...
  21. Whoa! Another Caniac in Caps-land? Glad it’s not just me! Sorry for the late response. Belated welcome, my friend. ???
  22. Belated welcome 2ndsacker ???
  23. Welcome Sportsfan. Glad you’re officially on board. Please join our banter on the GDTs during games.
