    If it was up to me he'd have been gone back in the fall when they stumbled out of camp looking like they didn't have a clue ... again.

    Wanna know how to keep up good relations with your Brother in Law? Don't hire him for a job where almost 100% of the people who hold that job get fired.

    Sticky: Re: 2017-18 Miscellaneous News Thread

    Cool ... for me "I'm done" means I'd be done pumping my money into the franchise.

    And let's be honest ... I'm probably going to give "new owner guy" a year or two to get his crap together. But if...

    Sticky: Re: 2017-18 Miscellaneous News Thread

    Nobody's saying anything about trading in their fan card. I'm talking about backing off of my ticket commitment. I've been a full boat STH for 19 years, and I really don't think I need to defend my...
  5. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    A short term deal for a rental center who can fill a role for the rest f the season and then pudge off into free agency would be fine with me. Frankly, anything that gives us an option that isn't...
  6. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    Yeah ... production wise he's only Rask-like, but with a more rounded game with less of the Cloak of Invisibility. That's a useful player, but only to a point. You don't sell the farm for a guy like...
  7. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    For the record, I like "the Nuge" but I'm not sure about him fitting in here. He's not especially big, not especially creative as the years have gone on and is the kind of tweener center that...

    Sticky: Re: 2017-18 Miscellaneous News Thread

    Yeah. I’d have to seriously consider my options if they plan to come back for the fall with the same management, coaching and a tweaked version of the same roster. There’s just no point throwing hard...
  9. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    Apparently that knee injury left him with limited mobility, even this far down the road. He’s about half the skater he used to be. The US are really just trying to get power play help out of the guy,...
  10. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    That's the kind of total course correction that you contemplate in the off season, I think. If you go all in on two big contract guys, then you need the flexibility to adjust the roster around them...
  11. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    Fine. Since Dundon is the only one that matters, then I guess we should all just shut up and let him get on with it then.

    And ... to my delight ... they blasted Oasis' Wonderwall on the PA after the game.

    Perfection.
  13. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    So I guess you'd prefer complete silence then?
  14. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    Look ... in pretty much any other market outside of maybe Nashville, they'd be getting roasted daily. The failure of our local sports media to develop any kind of NHL savvy over the course of 20...

    Re: GDT: Devils visit Raleigh 5:00 PM

    Honestly, I'm even more sick of the commentators and other sports "journalists" around here accepting the fantasy that there's some dignity in outshooting opponents even when you're not scoring. No....
  16. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    DeCock, BTW, absolutely shredded Francis and Peters in that column. I really appreciate his attempts to ratchet up some level of accountability around here.
  17. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    Completely fair. I'm not so sure that Mrazek's problems this season aren't directly tied to the quality of the D in front of him ... which is kind of garbage. He's experienced in these scenarios and...
  18. Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL trade deadline, Monday February the 26th, 3pm

    Stuck to the top.

    Over/Under on how many trades the Canes make before the deadline? For betting purposes, I'd assume it's fairly low ... like 1.

    Yeah ... Carolina needed to catch a break from NYI. Their goaltending, despite what we made Griess look like the other night, and crappy defense is what's going to keep the Canes in contact....

    Yeah ... it's almost like he's wearing the number 59 instead of 7. Even when he starts the game buried on the 4th line, he doesn't stay there. I'm sure the excuse for OT was that we needed to win...

    Yeah ... I don't have a problem with when it works. It's just not working and seems to be confusing our guys more than it does the other team.

    Aho had not had a particularly good game and I've got no problem sending Staal out there early instead ... just not with 2 defensemen. We've struggled to come up with a consistent strategy for OT for...

    And no reason to call up ANYBODY if you're going to be satisfied to keep rolling Rask out there to center a line while he's playing like he did over the last two games. Holy crap, we've got issues.

    Defense IS an issue in that, while the overall numbers are pretty good, we are plagued with BIG, dumb coverage breakdowns. Two of Jersey's goals last night are prime examples ... the opening goal is...
