  1. Just read about this. Really puts life and our priorities in perspective. Thoughts and prayers indeed.
  2. Kind of hated these guys and often jabbed them the "Sedin Sisters", but with lots of respect noted, these two guys were dynamic and the league has been better with them haven taken part. They were good for the Canucks and good for the NHL. Wishing these guys the best of luck and hope they stay close to the game. http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/23002860/henrik-sedin-daniel-sedin-announce-retirement-vancouver-canucks
  3. I’m not sure what this team is getting wrong. All they have to do is put the puck in the other team’s net and stop it from going into ours. This isn’t rocket ? science ??‍♂️
  4. Amazing that a guy can be in office attire and then have a goalie mask on hours later.
  5. Going to Rangers Caps game tonight at the old phone booth. This should be fun as a neutral bystander. Large tub of popcorn ?, M&Ms and a bladder-buster size drink.
  6. I'm not sure if these guys give the vets on the team a kick in the rear by playing hungry, but maybe it will break up some of that laissez faire, half-assed mentality we see at times. Entertainment value, if anything, goes up along with their development.
  7. If this year is going to be a flop then there is some gratitude seeing what Charlotte has to offer. One thing is for sure, you're going to see some bona-fide effort from those guys. They have their shot on stage, so show us whatcha can do!
  8. Yep, the next year auditions are in full swing. It's an annual event this time of year.
  9. This is what losing does to a team and and to a person at an individual level. There are “plans” alright but they include him probably not being here next year.... among others.
  10. So in other words things are looking promising??
  11. That is a fair and down-to-earth assessment I think many of us can identify with. We certainly have some positives to reflect on. This was suppose to be the year that the pieces of the puzzle would come together and vault is into the playoffs. Many of us fans came into this season with a “playoffs or bust” attitude. It doesn’t look like it’s happening, so this season stings more than any other recent campaign. Us loyal fans are still here and will support the franchise. The slackers and fair weather fans have already come and gone. We’ll still be here. To better and brighter days ahead...??
  12. ⭐️The People's Committee demands changes!!⭐️
  13. That Zykov kid...I like him. Good news!
  14. I have to say this is one of the more humorous and interesting threads on this board, bar none. ??
  15. All good points. Along with the team doing their job on the ice to keep the visiting fans from cheering, no harm in making sure those fans don’t get too cozy in our quarters. ??
  16. That’s going to be a lot of cameras and that cost is going to get passed right along to the loyal fans. Speaking of cost, does parking still cost the same as a game ticket?
  17. Agreed. Especially the Original 6 ticket prices are out of site expensive, those fanbases can take a week’s vacation to Raleigh for warmer weather and squeeze 2 or 3 hockey games in with our prices. It’s cheaper for me to travel to Raleigh for a Canes game than it is to go to a Caps game.
  18. The subject of allegiance is a touchy one and I see valid points from both sides. Hometown allegiances die hard. Here’s my thing... plain and simple... if you’re going to go into anyone else’s house and pull for the away team, show some class and be cool. Show respect and don’t be a jackass. Sports is like any other business...it’s about money. Pens or Rangers fans dough ? is just as welcome at PNC as Canes fans’ hard earned bread from the administrative point of view. If you can’t behave yourself and be cool, you should be banned from all sports venues. Ill add that it’s up to the organization as a whole to fill PNC with OUR red and black by putting a good product on the ice.
  19. If you recall, Nashville has an open policy to try to prevent Hawks fans from invading Bridgestone Arena. It was called “Keep the red out”. Tampa Bay had a similar policy during the 2015 Finals. Again, I’m all for encouraging the Home crowd. I am also annoyed by visiting obnoxious fans from other fan bases, especially those who go out of their way to show their true colors. A run in with Buffalo fans in 2016 while trying to enjoy a Canes game at PNC comes to my personal recollection. I just hope we don’t stoop to Nashville’s level in that regard. That is actually embarrassing to have a ticket policy because you can’t fill your own barn with your own fans.
  20. I agree with the general sentiment here but I also don’t believe in gimmicks to “wooo” fans. You have to make the hardened and bold decision to become a fan. No rewards, no pats on the back, no “atta boy”. Raleigh (NC in general) is a transient place. Like Tampa, Dallas, Miami, we face the uphill battle of defending our arenas and that’s just the way it goes. I made the choice to shelf my Blackhawks jersey and apparel for Canes gear but I won’t/can’t expect the same from other transplants. I have lived in the DC area since 2004 and Capitals threads have never touched my skin nor will it ever. So I find myself as the enemy screaming for the Canes at the Capital One Center and being seen as a traitor for not adopting the Caps. Friends and co-workers say I live and work in DC so I should support DC teams. No amount of discounts will cause me to hang up my Canes sweater for an Ovi shirt. Irony my friends... i want to see PNC full of Canes fans like anyone else, and as we have exhausted this point in many other threads, winning will help... not discounts or free pizza.
  21. I just had an opportunity to really read up on this topic. At this point I’m all for what shake-ups need to be made. I like RF but my loyalty to the overall team/franchise trumps that of one or two men. We’ll see what other messages Dundon drops and what this all leads to.
