News Articles on the Canes

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share two articles I read but didn't really know where to put them so I thought I would make a new thread for sharing and discussing interesting articles I've read. If a mod can think of a better place for this you can merge the threads, it won't hurt my feelings  :)

 

Here goes:

 

This one talks about Coach Steve Smith from his early NHL days to today

http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/15453650/nhl-steve-smith-hockey-bill-buckner-made-peace-own-goal-cost-oilers-chance-championship-30-years-ago

It really gives great insight on his coaching philosophy

 

And this should hopefully bring back some nostalgia

Great reads donwake, thanks for posting those.  Liked the nosalgia.  Especially Pisani.  That guy was on another level from most every player in that series.

 

Can't really not be happy with what Coach Smith has done.  Nothing short of outstanding, and I've pointed out before he doesn't get enough credit.

 

Personally, I like this kind of stuff in the off season thread.  :thumbsup2:

I agree - great reads, donwake.

 

How many of us know that Steve Smith is our other assistant? I didn't until reading this article. Brind'amour gets all the press, being the former captain and hero of the Stanley Cup run. Not that I begrudge him the attention, but I was happy to read about Coach Smith and his work with the defense.

 

Pisani was "in the zone" that whole playoffs in 2006, for sure.

While Brindy given who he is does get more face time, Smith isn't exactly hidden. I want to say Michelle checks in with him behind the bench after TV timeouts at least once a game.

I wonder if his first piece of advise to a new Dman is Don't Put the Puck in your own net.

 

Smith was a terrific defensemen. I was encouraged when he was hired and so far the results he has gotten from the D core is impressive.

That's good. I live halfway across the country from the Hurricanes, so I never get that level of coverage (can't afford Center Ice, so listening to Chuck K's stream is about the best I get).

I watched that game, and there are not many moments I remember from hockey back then but I remember this one crystal clear.  That and Lanny McDonald's bright red mustache.
