One of the greatest feelings you will ever have, that we forget as we get older #blogpost

Holy crap GeekJock is back! Yep and I hope to be back more if I ever get time. Well that, or if I ever figure out how to install the program to be able to voice to write. I am much better at talking and doing posts then actually typing (that’s why I have been […]

One week into free agency and hows it looking Canes fans? That’s right, not good yet #Canes #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes,Rant,sports

We got a huge boost as fans of the Carolina Hurricanes a couple of weeks ago, when GM Jim Rutherford (JR) made the huge deal and got Jordan Staal from the Pens. Then last week it was backed up by signing Staal to the same exact contract extension that the Pens had offered him. Ten […]

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 […]

The Stanley Cup is over, Cgts to the Kings, now reset those standings! #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes

Well, I will toot my own horn here first. Yup, finally ye olde GeekJock has finally picked one right on the nose. The Kings in 6, which I picked last week, is a reality and the city of LA has bragging rights for a whole year. They completely and 100% deserve it. Not only were […]

Stanley Cup and Ch-Ch-Ch- CHANGES!!!

Published by under Hockey,Random Sh-stuff,Rant

Things have been moving right along in the world and with a crazy as ever pace. Last we heard from me on the subject of the Stanley Cup playoffs, I was busy butchering EVERY prediction I made. Of the teams I picked to be in the final 4 only 1 of them won, and NONE […]

Canes ’11-’12 End of Season Grades Defense up first! #Canes #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes

It’s that time of year again! The playoffs are down to the final four and are exciting as ever. I will save my always wrong predictions on those until later and focus now on the Canes. The team finished 33-33-16 good for 82 points. On paper that LOOKS like .500 but it’s not. The 16 […]

Round Two of NHL playoffs are here. Predicitons and another quick Anti-Shanny rant #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Rant

Despite the week and a half long bout of nasty hit after nasty hit, the world still goes on. Sure, they did bring us a few suspensions but despite the cries of the sky falling from some anti-NHL fans out there, the playoff still continue as scheduled (Who would have thunk it right?). I had […]

My NHL ’11-’12 Predictions revisited and some shots at inspector Shanahan #NHL

Published by under Hockey,Rant

Another fast and furious season has come and gone. Despite both my Isles and Canes missing the playoffs it was still a fun one to watch. They both seemed at times like they were going to finally show us something positive pertaining to the post season but alas, they both came up short. The Isles’ […]

My Day as a Carolina Hurricane (Part 2) #CanesAlumniGame #TeamRed

Published by under Hockey,Hurricanes

Pep-talks were over, equipment was on and now it was time to line up for the introductions. We all looked at the list making sure who we were behind and we started to hear it. That killer sound of the siren and “Rock You Like a Hurricane” blaring over the loud speaker. There was one […]
