  1. https://www.nhl.com/sabres/news/sabres-hurricanes-preview-lineup-curtis-lazar-marco-scandella/c-311295642 Cane killer from the playoffs Marcus Johansson, their main 2C I believe, is out tonight.
  2. Well props to us for snatching Rees at #44 after a meh goalie pick of Kotchetkov at #36. I can't remember the last time we had a guy with sweet hands like this. Bokk seems to have a similar game.
  3. Is 6mil for Staal really overpaying for a guy we're that invested in? I suppose injury risk (multiple concussions) is a reason why he's "trended down" rather than his game itself. We miss him badly when he's out, mainly on D. One of our best players in the playoffs last year.
  4. Brock is as good of a bottom 6-er as it gets and he is so bought in. Him injured fighting Ryan last night says it all. Also see my avatar
  5. "Andrei Svechnikov will play in his 100th career NHL game. The 19-year-old has registered 53 points (27g, 26a), the fourth-most in franchise history through 100 games."
  6. Slavin is racking up assists right now on a 50-ish point pace. All of his 11 points are in 5v5. And he often looks like the fastest skater on our team. This is nothing new though, almost like a continuation of his game in the playoffs last year. He won't make the All Star game or be in the running for the Norris, Dougie will, but he is our personal 6th man of the year.
  7. How much longer until we light up the Bat-signal for J Will? Probably not this early in the season but it feels like we really need him after a triple poop sandwich
  8. I only saw the highlights. No soft goals from Mrazek, just D breakdowns. You hate to see Dougie score and then give up the go ahead goal on a guy that looked very body-able in front of the net
  9. In that case you're right. Forcing out Chuck Kaiton with an 80% pay cut is unforgivable IMO though
  10. https://www.canescountry.com/2019/11/6/20952427/carolina-hurricanes-recall-eetu-luostarinen-from-charlotte-checkers-erik-haula-injury On Haula's knee: Brind'amour says there's no structural damage and he just needs rest. I hope we don't rush him back
  11. https://puckbase.com/stats/faceoff-percentage?team=CAR I wouldn't be surprised if Haula gets a shot at the 1C spot whenever we change up the lines. He has the faceoff stats to back it up!
  12. Yeah he may be our leading scorer but perhaps not a Raleigh celeb yet like this prankster group that is forming between Dougie, Svech, and Foegele
  13. Buffalo is 8-1-1 atop the Atlantic. Skinner with 6 goals 2 assists (trigger warning). They signed Marcus Johansson (trigger warning) who is centering Skinner's line. Eichel playing great, maybe he makes a big leap this year? Dahlin going beast mode with assists. If the playoffs start today that makes Boston and Toronto play each other in the first round, obviously Tampa could climb back up too. Way too early hot take: it will be verrry tough to make the playoffs in the East again
  14. Humble brag- I saw Haula with his wife on the way out of the fair last night and shook his hand. Seems like a super nice guy.
  15. Haula was a pass-first winger that we're playing as a center. Brind'amour the faceoff man must really believe in him. I've missed some games but I think every Haula goal I've seen has been him parked in front of the net. He still has a ton of potential coming off the injury and will be a UFA next year so I'm sure he'll keep playing his butt off.
