  1. Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    Netherlands through 2-1 on another late PK .. for a handball that for me was a 50/50 call. Rough way to go out for Japan, in a game that saw them dominate the 2nd half but lack the finish to make it...

    Hey ... I'm allowed to be a homer. Charbonneau was fine, but there's no justice in a world where he gets in the Hall ahead of Brind'Amour.

    Screw everyone who votes on this travesty for putting that human lugnut in ahead of Brind'Amour.

    And I'll reiterate my thoughts on Fleury. I don't especially like Fluery at the NHL level but it's time to fish or cut bait on the kid. He's got nothing left to learn, prove or accomplish in the AHL....

    Quotes indicate the Canes are wading through 120 applications for the goaltending coach job. So much for the nobody wants to work here narrative. At least 120 morons are up for it.
  6. Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    Well ... Italy made it look easy on the scoresheet, but not so much on the pitch. They held off a furious Chinese attack to win 2-0. China forced 9 corners and jacked 19 shots in the direction of...

    Yeah ... I think the State Fair game went way better than anyone here would have guessed. Otherwise doing it again would be begging for trouble.

    I already know at least four people making plans...

    From a few other articles I've read about Charlie Ebersol's role in securing Dundon's participation, he might actually have a case.

    Re: Around the League - 2019 Offseason

    It's pretty much a certainty that Carolina will match any offer sheet extended to Aho. They really don't have a choice, but they also want the player locked up long term and will bite the bullet on...
  11. Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    Japan is a bad matchup for the Dutch, but the Orange have been so good in this tournament that might not matter. Nobody in the tournament can counter with Japan's precision and the Dutch are so...

    Re: Canes Trade de Haan, Saarela

    My point is ... it IS a crappy trade, but does that really matter if it sets up a less crappy roster come camp time? For me ... let's wait and see what happens before we get the pitchforks sharpened.

    Re: Canes Trade de Haan, Saarela

    This is probably a great reminder of why evaluating a single trade in an off season that will have plenty of other roster moves probably isn't the best idea. There's an internet and media driven...

    Re: Canes Trade de Haan, Saarela

    FWIW, Brind'Amour doesn't like Saarela. Didn't like his camp, and he got an attitude when he got sent down early. Yeah, he had a good season in Charlotte, but he was a guy we took in a trade, not...

  17. Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    Front 6 really let the US down today, the more I think about it. We didn't try to get over the top nearly enough and I thought Ellis left WAY too much to her players. She she should have been goosing...
  18. Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    You thought she missed her with the foot? Because I saw several angles that showed contact. And that's all it takes. Stud somebody in the leg in the box and you're getting called. All day, every day.

    I mean ... I get that. Smith is erratic at best, but up until this season his overall numbers have always been pretty much league average or better. And he was very good for the Flames in the...

    Turris? He'd be a replacement for Wallmark on the Canes ladder at center ... at best. The only interest there would be that he's quite good on the power play.

    Duchene will ask and get $10-11 million. No need to even show up to talk if you don't have it to give.

    She got cleats into Lavelle's leg ... not sure why that's soft? It wasn't much to look at, but it's pretty much an automatic call. If anything the ref was comically lenient with Spain's defenders....

    Smart move by Rafa. That place is always one bad mood day from the board room away from descending into chaos. Get out while you can.
