  1. Thanks Remkin and OBXer! Looking forward to jumping in a bit! Not really able to watch games for the most part, so highlights and stats/fancy stats are about the limits of my following. So when I read the event summary and see JWill is hitting people I know we got problems, lol.
  2. I have more or less bounced back, lol. Happy to be home. ?
  3. Yeah, so, I'm back. I know I pretty much disappeared in 2009, I had a horseback riding accident that left me recovering from an MTBI that year and between that and work, forums were sadly not high on my list of priorities. I have been lurking around since probably early 2010, just not signed in, and pretty much living vicariously through our recently returned prodigal 'Cane, JWill. But hopefully things will kick up here, the team will find their cruising gear, and we'll all be one big happy family again. I missed you guys. Let's do this. Whatever It Takes. ?
  4. Been lurking for about 7 of the 8. Work and life have not been kind. That said, I have high hopes for the team and hope we start seeing the kind of activity on the board we had in '05.
  5. Hey, I survived both lockouts. I have high hopes! ?
  6. I think we have a team that is more than the sum of its parts, once they actually hit their stride. I'm just a little on the impatient side about them getting there. =)
  7. Pretty sure doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity, but then again...
  8. [quote name='indaboardz wrote: goeb'] Trading Williams away to get Cole eventually, well that a whole other issue. I've watched Justin many times on tv this year and he is completely back to full form . and now saying that......Williams breaks his leg in Phoenix on Saturday. Ahhh, come now. He didn't break his leg, he broke his ankle and a couple ligaments. And in all fairness, if Kopitar and Jovanovski fall on you while you're stuck behind Kopitar, don't you think you may break something too? Kind of like when a certain defenseman who can't hit the broad side of a barn manages to break your hand with a slapshot. Luck is luck, and Williams has absolutely no good luck. But yes, prior to that he was in great form. And we could have used him.
  9. Yeah thanks guys. The real story is way less glamorous. My friend had spinal fusion surgery and I've been taking care of her animals. I'm up at 4am every morning. I don't stay up late any more because I just can't. Between that and a full-time job, I'm pretty much never here. Which sucks. (As to the L.A. thing, I managed to watch 4 'Canes games post-trade and only 2 Kings games, and I have C.I. I still love the 'Canes but life gets in the way.)
  10. It's human nature to try to gauge intention and emotion from subtle clues in demeanor or expression or tone of voice. There's very little in the way of psychiatry involved. In fact, the same powers of observation are more at work in a game of poker. And if you don't like it, you don't have to. They have as much right to say "he looks sad" or "he looks annoyed" or "he looks surprised" as you do to say he doesn't. So don't get upset about it. Personally, I think he looks tired and somewhat shellshocked, but that's just my 2 cents.
  11. I can tell you on one of the Kings boards, they think they've won the trade just listening to his interview. I guess he's slicker than I thought, lol.
  12. I'll still follow him probably as closely as I do the 'Canes. I hope this gets us into the playoffs, else it was rather pointless. And if you think he looked annoyed in the media scrum, you should see him in the interview with that Heidi girl, lol.
  13. Yeah Williams is currently worth something between a case of pucks and a skate sharpening machine. Do we need a new skate sharpening machine?
  14. That actually looks somewhat reasonable, JJ. But Brind'Amour is more likely to retire than to be traded.
