Oh, and Vote for Rory! ;)

DaveG 12-08-2006 04:29 PM

Can we please PLEASE win a game on this trip? I meen really, what the hell is going on with this team?

Obi Wan LaRosie 12-08-2006 04:33 PM

okay, can someone please explain this rory fitzpatrick thing to me? why are we voting for him? is this a challenge to see if we can get the worst player in the nhl into the all star game?

caniacgirl12 12-08-2006 04:35 PM

Ehhh....Rory is a pretty deserving choice. Its more like exposing the flaw that is the entire NHL All Stars voting system, and it kind of exploded into the "cool thing" to do.

Obi Wan LaRosie 12-08-2006 05:46 PM

wow, those are terrible lines....didnt realize how much worse our team looked without that second top tier center.

DaveG 12-08-2006 06:00 PM

... so wait, it's confirmed that Brindy's out now?

caniacgirl12 12-08-2006 06:29 PM

Wait...if Brindy is out then we are going to be in big trouble cause I bet we go with a 7th dman....and you know who that probably will be.......

True North 12-08-2006 07:18 PM

You can add Sami Salo, Taylor Pyatt, and Rick Rypien to our woeful list of injured players.

CioCio 12-08-2006 07:41 PM

The "GO CANES!!!!" I usually put in my posts no longer works it magic. Like Cam Ward with his new facemask, I too must shed the vestiges of what once was.

Thus begins the easier leg of the roadtrip, although if Vancouver's D is anything like we saw the last two games, we're in hot water. Although that makes sense, as I suppose all the ice is going on Brindy's crotch... (not funny??)

DaveG 12-08-2006 08:06 PM

The key to this one is simple. So simple a child could figure it out, so let's see if the Canes can.

You know when we go up 5 guys to 4? SCORE! It's THAT FRIGIN SIMPLE!

Canucks lack goal scoring, if your team plays average and scores just about 2 goals, you should have the easy win.

unfortunitely with the Canes lately that's easier said then done. The team either shows up and explodes for 5 goals in a game or they don't and get shut out. They lack the consistency and killer instinct that they had throughout last season at this point.

I'll do it, then. GO CANES!!! This is like the first time I get to watch a Canes game in 2 months.

DaveG, for some reason that avatar weirds me out.

DaveG 12-08-2006 09:03 PM

nobody ****s with the Jesus.

and speeking of ****, we're ****ed. Stillman AND Brind'Amour out, I really don't like the looks of this one.

no, our Jesus Rory is injured, so were the ones that are ****ed.


don't worry, if you can get atleast one goal you'll win by default. You don't even need Ward back there, just go with 6 attackers.

Canuck fans seem to have great confidence in their team.

Anyways, go Canes and all that. And yes, the Jesus avatar is awesome, just like the film it's from!

DaveG 12-08-2006 09:17 PM

Well, Luongo's definitely playing like Luongo so far tonight. He ALWAYS seemed to have our number whenever we played the Panthers, I see that's carying over to Vancouver.

HughJass* 12-08-2006 09:19 PM

Hmm, this looks familiar. The 4th line is showing the most effort on the ice.

The Big Lebowski

PP time again, let's hope we can cash in this time.

vwg* 12-08-2006 09:27 PM

Great. Another first goal by an opponent..

HughJass* 12-08-2006 09:27 PM

K, Vancouver just showed me what the Canes are lacking right now: guys who aren't timid about moving the puck.

'The Big Lebowski'? I've seen that movie mentioned a few times but I honestly have no idea what it's about.

DaveG 12-08-2006 09:28 PM

Jan ****ing Bulis....

Yeah that's pretymuch the premise of the movie really. ;)

Obi Wan LaRosie 12-08-2006 09:32 PM

Well, I am about to go out and get ripped, but the canes are again looking terrible and i just cannot watch. good luck to you all, and root for erik cole to score....or anyone for that matter. 1 goal in the last 7 periods is not tood good.
