Caniac Cup...round 1...

Tuesday, 29 October 2019...7 pm...PNC Arena

 

Pipe dream for me:  Rod comes into the room before the game and goes all Reg Dunlop on the team and places a bounty on the head of one Elias Lindholm for this incident last year-

Nothing major...nothing sinister or an injuring play...just a few nice hard checks into the boards with some comments of "you used to play here *edit, way to keep it classy for the fans that still liked you until that moment."  Or maybe just a Dougie skol clap as Lindholm exits the ice after a Canes victory (think along the lines of what he did to Brock Nelson last season after the 2nd round).

But I'm sure Rod or the rest of the team won't say or do anything about it.  :(

 

The Flames currently sit in WC1 in the west at 6-5-2, and we're all well aware of their offensive firepower.  But, other than Giordano and Hanifin, their blue line hasn't been off to a great start this season, with most of the blue line at -5 or worse.

 

And, of course, there was their blockbuster trade of James Neal for Milan Lucic, who still hasn't scored for them and has 26 PIM's to start the season...so look for him to goon it up for BP.

 

Other than that, I got nothing...JUST WIN!

 

Ok, so maybe there's this positive to end it on...

Well, looks like Flames #28 didn't endear himself to Helm. Lindholm still showing his true self, Maybe Edmundson can welcome him back to Raleigh?

None of that sequence happens if the slew foot off the draw is called. Absolutely none of it. Instead you got players policing the game for themselves.

This game still brings back the blockbuster trade. That trade still twists and turns as to good or bad on paper, but as to how it affected the team culture it really does start to look better even though Lindholm broke out and we threw Hanifin in too. 

 

First, I still think we got the best player in the trade, even with Lindholm's breakout. Dougy is turning into the Norris trophy contender that we've never really had, and brings that rarest of things, around 20 goals from a D man. On the back end of the trade, while we did lose out on Fox, we did also get what will probably be two second rounders for him, and probably a pretty high one this year. Time will tell on those, but we've been pretty good in the second round of the draft.

 

But mainly this move, getting Skinner for Pu, trading for Martinook, hiring Brind'Amour and elevating J Williams to Captain allowed the ship of culture to turn 180 degrees in one season. Probably on paper the deal is a push. But for us, it was a winner. 

 

Now lets not let Lindholm pull that mock skoal clap nonsense again. Let's beat them soundly.

I agree this appears on paper as a high price to pay-  However as they were both RFA and were going to cost us some big $$, this money was used elsewhere.  SO a little hard as you say to judge total impact. Beating = pounding  I sincerely hope.

Don’t bother bringing up Dougie and Norris in the same sentence...it’s already been awarded to John Carlson, even though he’s not putting them into the net like Dougie is.

True, Carlson got all the attention on nhl show yesterday.

Well in all fairness Carlson has 21 points Dougie has 12. Dougie is playing great and we should all be very excited for his play but right now Carlson is earning all the talk he is getting

Has anybody heard anything on Haula for tonight? Just read over on Canes Country that he's "not skating"? Is that maintenance or some type of injury? Or not true at all?

Do we just put Staal at the top of the lineup to make him happy cause that looks more like a 3rd line then a 1st line.
