Canes Nab Jordan Staal in draft day trade and I couldn’t be happier. #Canes #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes,Islanders

Every time I get to where I have completely given up faith in Jim Rutherford (Canes GM), he does something akin to walking on water and he brings me right back to his corner. Friday night was no different. I was sitting at a local bar with some friends Friday night, celebrating getting a new […]

Draft day in the NHL. Wild trade day, or just picks, either could happen, which do I want? #NHL #Hurricanes

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes,Islanders

Ahh, draft day is here. It’s always among my favorite days in the NHL calendar. You never ever know if your team will go trade crazy to move the pick or move up, or if they will just sit tight and keep all their picks and go about their normal business. Traditionally there are a […]

Canes Deadline deal Anaysis and NHL drops the ball with suspensions. #Hurricanes #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes,Islanders,Rant

This years NHL trade deadline went down with a decent amount of trades but the damage for the most part was fairly minimal. Besides the Penner deal not a whole lot of big names went places. I had a feeling that the Hurricanes would do SOMETHING but I also knew this something would be fairly […]

Canes Beat Isles 7-2… notes on game from a fairly neutral party

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes,Islanders

First let me get the record straight on the following. A) I am a Canes season ticket holder and lost my voice after the loss to Pitt the other night b/c of how bad the officiating was in the 3rd period and B) I wore my Islander jersey to the game tonight. I guess the […]

New York Islanders 2-1-2 (6 pts)

Published by under Hockey,Islanders

The Isles have played their first five games and each game has been exciting. Gordon’s aggressive forechecking style has opponents scrambling. Opening night started off with another appearance by the injury bug as John Tavares went off with a head injury in the 1st period. He ended up missing essentially the first four games. The […]
