If someone really did try to kill Pitkanen, would he care enough to try to stop them?

Second thing, are you really whining because we would love it if our ENFORCER did his job and got Pitkanen back for injuring a player? Ten years ago if Pitkanen rocked Carter like he did, he would would have been jumped. But hey, your a carolina fan. Classic hockey and carolina in the same sentence seems unatural.
You have a point with Tripp Tracey, but John Foslund is one of the best announcers out there. Its not his fault he has to deal with Tripp's stupidity and he is no where near being a homer. Forslund does quite a few games on VS as well. He is very knowledgable about each team and the game. To call Forslund a horrible announcer is like calling Tripp Tracey a great announcer.

For the team toughness remark, I'll let that remark slide as your a Philly fan and don't pay attention to Carolina. But please get the remarks in the right content, b/c he didn't say it after Ruutu got roughed up. He said it after Eaves got roughed up in the fight. And he said it because this team has shown no team toughness in their last 4-5games. For Eaves who has been out with a concussion and just returned from yet another shoulder injury, for him to fight, shows team toughness. That was the context Forslund was going after.

And another remark about the Canes announcers can't even find anyone to interview Wednesday night so they interviewed a Flyers person. That's because the Canes player they were going to interview was unavailable as Lavi was having a closed door meeting. Surprised no one could figure that one out on their own.

Also, wherever this team is visiting, they do at times show the history of that said place. For a state that has only had the team for 10 years and still acquiring new fans, I don't think stating the history of the teams they are playing is such a bad idea.

That was noted in the GDT for Wednesday. Instead of the Canes player (can't remember who was supposed to be interviewed), they talked with Coatsey between the benches.

I think it was supposed to be Staal being interview the other night.


The Hurricanes broadcast is one of the better ones in the league, I think.

Forslund does a nice job for Versus, but he sings a different tune for Canes' broadcasts. He's better than the worst homers, Edwards in Boston for example, but he's still pretty annoying at times.

I think it was Pitkanen who was then interviewed at a later point that game.

Forslund is pretty good. I have the opposite feeling about Joe B. He is good on the Caps' broadcasts but borderline brutal on Versus.

I'm sorry, I have no desire to enter this debate, but this made me crack up. It's so true.

I just wanted to say I was really dissapointed in your GDT. I know alot of the time people think they can say whatever they want and that's their choice, but I found multiple comments distasteful and somewhat disgusting imo. I'm sure some of you are gonna say 'get off our board and blah blah blah.' Well it doesn't give you the right to wish physical harm on other players, such as Larose, Ruutu and Pitkanen. Just look one post up if you need a refresher.


Multiple comments were made how you wish they were taken out or punched in the face. And some of this came from a mod, if my recollection serves me right. This, in my opinion is unacceptable and as much as someone might 'hate' another opponent, this is the lowest of the low. You can look through our 'massive' 7-8 page thread and you will never see anything close to the hatred and death threats you guys made. You guys have great players and a great team, but stooping down to bashing our players/wishing them harm and belittling our play by play crew which is probably the most honest and unbiased in the business (imo) is low and cheap. Go to nhl.com and listen to the play by play of the highlights. I dare you to say John Forslund was bias in any way, he reacted just as much to the philly goals as the canes goals, save the OT winner which justifiably should be more exciting as it decided the game on the spot. When the PHI goal was called back he called the goal properly and then said 'it was a major break for the canes' and so forth. Sure they may have been missed calls here and there. That's expected. He's not an official. No one here is. How many times have you thought there should have been a call that didn't happen. I'd love to hear one of you guys call the game in an unbias fashion. missed calls happen to everyone. Get Over it. Just because at first glance the crew called a hand pass instead of a penalty doesn't mean they are stupid. They were following the puck. That's what they are supposed to do. I've never actually heard a flyers game called by the flyers guys but, you seem to praise them like jesus christ and buddha combined. That's fine, i understand it. You're flyers fans, and they are flyers commentators. They're paid to call flyers games. But don't call us stupid or uneducated in hockey because we love and follow the canes. John Forslund does a hell of a job at what he does and is well respected around the league for it. And certainly don't 'feel pity' on us for having to suffer through John for a play by play guy.

Yup. And he was also booed just about every time he touched the puck, too.

Edit: It was a shot by Staal as listed below.

If you're talking about the shot that hit Biron in the mask, I'm pretty sure it was either staal or ruutu. I could be wrong though.

The feed to the broadcast yesterday, for me, was hit-or-miss so I didn't see first hand but it was listed as Pitkanen in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The writer could be mistaken, too.

Biron suffered a bruised right shoulder when a Joni Pitkanen slapshot slipped through his armor. The goalie fell to the ice and was checked by team trainers, but rose to the chants of "Marty" and remained in the game.
