    Except that he had to okay it. I think he's happy to get a fresh start and the chance to build something with one of the best players in hockey.

    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.

    For whatever reason Southern teams just don’t get into the rivalry thing.

    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.

    Lots of contradicting feelings.....on the one hand I get really hopeful and start dreaming big regarding the rest of the roster after the draft and trades.......and then I remember we don't have a goalie.

    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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

     And on a lighter note.... Avalanche go from worst to playoff in one season. Hire that coach.

    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. 

  7. 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.
