Speaking of the wonderful franchise that this is.

Can we have one game where you guys don't score tonight?

Thats actually not a big request, Im sure the boys will be happy to oblige. Things have been a little cold lately. (though 1 line in particular seems to be gelling, I could see them score)

If they gave out Championship Rings to teams who win meaningless games in March, the Hurricanes would have already run out of fingers this century.

Only 6 points back of Toronto, and 7 points back (with 2 games in hand) of Boston.

Its going to be another solid 9th/10th place finish in the standings. Exactly what you do NOT want when you are young+rebuilding.
But I have to admit, they are really entertaining to watch. Frustrating at times, but really fun. They remind me of the Leafs, not as good and no one quite at Matthews level, but there is a lot of talent on this team. If the young D develop, and some of the young fwds get better, they will be a contender. oh, and we need a goalie. bad.

I actually do. In fact, sometimes when the sports pak gives me the option, I pick them over the other teams.

I find the colour/analyst guy (Tripp Tracy) to be really good with not being a homer, and telling it like it is, without too much fluff. He gives good background info on what happens behind the scenes.
The play by play guy is also pretty good, solid voice (he seems to do a fair amount of NBC games too), and knows the game pretty well.
They dont dumb it down too much for Canes audience, though sometimes I know they have to, and some of us might not like that as big hockey fans.

What I love is that neither one of them does a lot of "OH NO, our team was robbed by the refs" or "The other teams pest ___ ______ should be suspended". Boston/Philly are awful for this, even some Leafs games.
Plus, they routinely call out Canes players for having bad games, or bad shifts. LOVE THAT! I dont watch a whole game very often, so if I tune in in the 2nd period, I want to know if Aho had a bad first period...dont sugar coat it, give me the real info.

They won so many meaningless games, that now they have meaningful games. But I still think it will be this...

That's awesome. It didn't look good a couple weeks ago, but the Canes are right back there. As always, I'm cheering for them (so long as it doesn't impact Pittsburgh).

Im going to post this here, and in turn respond to your post, by saying if they make the playoffs, I'm going to a game. Hopefully in Carolina.
Had a crappy last few months, and not able to do much for a couple more with this shoulder, so Im aiming to go on a trip in April. Come on playoffs!

Skinner has been invisible on the score sheet lately too.

Last year in the playoffs, he had 14g and 6a in 16 FCHL playoff games last year. (!!!)

very.

this year, its Tero+Aho show. Skinner gets 2nd rate wingers and 2nd pp and 2nd line ice time.
he even 'looked' better earlier in the year, lately his energy seems off. maybe all star break will do him some good.
