Once they were Canes

Recommended Posts

I certainly feel the Blues' fans pain. So glad he was traded away, as I've felt that way about him for a while now. When players/teams figured out how to neutralize Justin's point shot on the PP, he began to falter. He could play with some grit, I'll give him that, but his D was, and appears to be suspect. "Divisive" IDK, but I had my suspicions.

I suspect he means divisive with regard to fan perception of him, not Faulk being a divisive influence on the team?

That sounds familiar.

Well, sometimes 3 minutes into a game, he unleashes that cannon, and it turns into a goal when the opposing goalie spits out a rebound right in front of the goal. I don’t think Faulk was a divisive player, and I’m not sure about his effort level being suspect, but I’m sure Blues fans are gagging at 6 more years of what he brings at $6.5 million per year. That’s going to be a hard contract to bury.

Slugs fans are probably thinking the same with #53

I honestly can't think of a more-divisive player the Canes have had in the past decade.

Later Eric Staal is a good one.

They were, but i'm not sure even those 2 split the fans and naysayers like Faulk did.  He certainly had a knack for it.

My point was not among fans. It was within the locker room. As far as the fans who post here, Faulk, Eric Staal and Cam Ward were favorite whipping boys the last years of the playoff drought. As far as the wider fan base, and as I have posted here before, I was waiting in line for the doors to open to PNC when the Staal trade was announced, and I’d say 75% of the fans were upset that we traded him. One or two people were apoplectic. Maybe that’s what you mean by divisive-that fans had widely differing opinions. As a player, I really believe Dundon, Waddell and Rod would like to have kept Faulk, but not for much over half of what St. Louis paid him. No way he fits in here at $6.5 million with the contracts we have already given and the contract we will have to give Svech.

Yeah, my slant is fully about the fans.  I never saw any indication he was divisive in the locker room.

Ferland is a warrior but man, how man "concussion-like symptoms" does it take before you admit to yourself enough is enough.

I was thinking the same. I wish him well and hope it is only symptoms and not a concussion but at what point does his future life quality make him consider hanging up the skates.

In his first game for the Rags, Goat played a little over 7 minutes and registered 1 SOG and 2 Giveaways.

Also drew a penalty on a breakaway he created with his speed. Rags fans seem happy with his debut.
