  1. I guess the coach is trying to see how much pain Mrazek can take. I hope he doesn't pull a Patrick Roy (Montreal).
  2. I think Jordan Staal should start out on the 4th line and very slowly move up. His career average for goals is .24 per game and his point totals average is around .52 per game. So what he has a great face off percentage. We now are number 29 in the NHL for face offs but have one of the best records since January in the league. One person does make a difference and when you chew up the playing time that Staal manages to chew up without any points it makes a huge difference. In my humble opinion this team looks better without Staal and as far as I am concerned he is one of the last pieces of the old guard that needs to go away. Nothing personal but for the money we are paying him the production just is not there. I had a friend of mine that went to the same church as Jordan. He said he and Eric were really awesome church members and very humble men. My wife and I met Eric at an event once and he was a really nice guy. Jordan comes off the same way to me. I can see why a team would be reluctant to move a man of such great character. But hockey games are not won by character but by goals. O.K. - I'm done. Have a blessed day !!
  3. This is an excellent trade. Rask needs a change and we need new blood. I hope this is just the start of a couple of more trades. My next choice for a move is Hamilton. We really need another stay at home defenseman. These so called puck moving defenseman are getting old. Hamilton keeps moving the pucks to the other team or allows them to move the puck past him. Just my unofficial observation.
  4. Hurricanes are looking really good against the #1 defense in the NHL. I think this team looks much better without Jordan Staal. They just look different.....maybe faster.
  5. . Please excuse my ignorance. I am a very old man on social security and medicare. I have been watching hockey for many years and have followed these boards forever it seems. Loved the North Stars. In order to have an opinion on here or ask a question without being berated are there a certain number of posts that I should have before I am validated ? Please advise.
  6. I have been holding this in for too long. Time to let her go.......Rask and Hamilton need to go away. I don't care where they go just go away. My chest is clear.
  7. Security is going to have to step up their game. I can see some drunk fat guy taking off his shirt and helicoptering it and making everyone around him (oh the poor children) very irritated. Just kidding. I think this song is going to be fun once the fans start getting into it. As far as Dundon and the committee I for one like the way they are doing things a bit outside the box. The other way has not worked for years so why not shake things up a bit. And as a side note FYI.....I am old enough that I am on Medicaire and still think this song will do quite nicely. I used to question why they played Highway to Hell during warm ups. That probably did not set well with persons of high moral character. God I can't wait for the season to start.
  8. I think this season looks very promising for the Hurricanes. My only concern is the goalie situation and I am hoping that both of our goalies live up to their potential. Past stats on both of these guys are very good. I hope recent stats were just bumps in the road. If our goalies can live up to their potential we are going to have a great year. The year that we won the cup my wife and I went to every game that year except 2. We went to every playoff game and were there for the 7th game of the Stanley Cup win. Man would I love to relive that again. The excitement level was so high that I could not sleep most nights waiting for the next game. I think the new owner and management are doing a great job but as we all know until the win column is greater than the loss column.....nothing else matters. A couple more moves and we are good to go.
