I thought about the Canes playing 5 forwards on the PP given the situation but I'm surprised RBD is brave enough to give that a go. Some teams have dared to do that in the past, but boy you better mind your crap around the blueline if you are going to give that a go.
No Slavin at all on...
Given the D we will putting out there tonight, I don't know if the best approach is to have the forwards be a little more 'aware' on backchecking or have them be more aggressive in the O-zone to try to generate enough goals knowing we are likely going to giving up 3+ for sure.
Whoever is in...

That was one thing that Amalie Arena had over PNC, lots of 'better food options' with more name brands than not (ie Outback bloom petals, burgers, steak sandwiches), Papa Johns, PDQ.
PNC is catching up though. Are they ever going to do work on the expansion of the arena that included more...
Lack of a good burger has always been a problem at the arena (burgers have never been good). Shake Shack? That is a major upgrade on the burger side of things. If they are going to be selling shakes too along with Shake Shack fries (which I love) then forget it, that stand is just going to...
Joey Keane and Maxim Lajoie? Or Jalen Chatfield to get another Righty in there?
Yeah, that is going to be an interesting lineup tomorrow night.
As for what is going on with Covid around the Triangle area, if you are vaccine inclined and haven't yet...

That is exactly what I thought as I walked by that stand Sunday. Definitely love the upgraded food option, but that place is going to be absolutely insane when they open it, and it will stay that way for a long time.
Matt Murray is getting paid $6 million this season. He is owed $7 then $8 million the next 2 seasons at a cap hit of $6.25 million. That is being reduced by escrow of course, but still he is owed a lot.
That would be an ugly buyout. Not that Ottawa needs the cap room, but ouch!
Ok, so those lines are weird, and I hate having Martinook out there with Aho, ever!
But we did just come off a game where our offense was pretty stale. You can also think about it this way, if the Canes really start the game rolling with those lines, if you are Seattle, which of those...
I've run into blackouts with ESPN+ for Canes games (at least the one time I made that effort). Not sure if that will happen again tonight, but if you are going to try to partake in the Forslund call and are in the Triangle be prepared to deploy a workaround if you have one.
