  1. Hey gang. I hope everyone is safe. I’ve been housing family up here from NC while trying to help other families members remotely. What a disaster ? Hope all Caniacs are reporting for duty safe and in one piece. Thoughts and prayers for those still impacted.
  2. Man I’m just ready to get this season underway. I can hardly contain it. ??
  3. Well, this is part of the wholesale changes we were promised. Lock stock and barrel...all the way down to the tunes.
  4. As long as we get our free Bo Berry biscuits that’s all that matters. You have to keep priorities in mind here...☝️
  5. Good article in the N & O which I’m sure many have already seen. Justin is a realist but I *cautiously* like the optimism. https://www.newsobserver.com/sports/nhl/carolina-hurricanes/article217085250.html
  6. Yikes... not my fav tune but I hope to hear it many times. ?
  7. No doubt! There is a little more uneasiness this season compared to previous campaigns. In the past we were suppose to be on the cusp of making the playoffs with familiar faces and a familiar system. The crayon box has been shaken up and turned upside down and we’re all wondering how this picture turns out. I’m still with some optimism (albeit very cautious) for the reboot. Oh the suspense!! ?
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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? ?
  11. Was going to post a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot rant but then I remembered how many playoff games we won with Jeff. ??‍♂️
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. Hope he likes rain, seafood, and coffee ☕️
  17. This is good. The status quo wasn’t working.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!!!
  20. I don’t get caught up in emotion or nastalgia. He’s our coach now and I’m ready to get next season on!
  21. 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.
  22. I was halfway being sarcastic but there may be some validity in the notion.
  23. All we need to do is add The “Ageless Wonder” Jagr to this mix of young talent and we have a winning solution! ??
