It's close... but I can't recall one trying to destroy a 100+ year old landmark in Raleigh. Can't verify that any teabagging didn't happen though.

Chip Alexander @ice_chip
Kevin Westgarth skating with Canes today at RCI. Big guy (6-4, 228) and looks bigger. With Kings last two seasons.

Guess we might have an answer to that 4th line guy with size

EDIT: Nope. Guess he's still under contract for the Kings since he's their NHLPA rep. He is Bill Cowher's son in law though, so I suppose that explains why he's in Raleigh

Then we can go to other teams boards and make fun of them for their lack of a gdt.

The "pretend there's a season with GDTs complete with game comments and injury/trade/contract extension threads on our board" idea has tremendous potential.

Semin misses penalty shot, he sucks, trade him for draft picks.

Staal looked like he tried to intentionally hurt Skinner there, must be jealousy.

Corvo traded to Montreal for Kaberle.

Paul Maurice returns as associate head coach.

Mike Commodore signs 1 year, 3 million. Injures self in practice, will miss season.

Large chested girl sitting behind Canes bench, Muller won't move, gets fired. JR explains it as "Best interest for the team right now". Paul Maurice gets re-hired for 3rd time. JR must go.

Trollercanes troll Bruins again. Team gets fined for breaking new no-trolling rule introduced at start of season.

Gleason's water bottle discovered to have beer in it. Gets warning.

LaRose wins first ever LaRose award for NHL's best smile.

5-1 loss.

Babe Winkleman to replace Ron the Ref.

Just a few things to get us started.

After devastating Hurricane, JR announces team will change name. New name will be Tobacco Kings, like in that one episode of Arli$$. LA Kings do not approve. Team changes name again to IceCaps. Washington Capitals do not approve. Team changes name to Panthers. Forget that a team in South Florida already owns that name. Team changes again to Whalers. People in Hartford not happy, threaten lawsuit. JR and PK give up and sell entire ownership to Quebec businessman. Who for some bizarre reason keep team in Raleigh and name them the Southdiques. People in Quebec riot.

If we did that, ESPN would be right about their hockey coverage for once. We can't let that happen.



Otherwise, both this post and the previous one are comedy gold. Please continue, sir.

Well since you asked.

Jeff Skinner proposes to Chantel McCabe.
Gets rejected. Akward interviews follow. Skinner asks for trade. Gets sent to Toronto for Phil Kessel. Burke finally admits true feelings about Kessel trade in '09 saying "I shouldn't have done it".

Sutter scores ovechtrick on us. JR trades 9 first round draft picks, one for each goal, to Pittsburgh for him. Sutter unhappy to be back in Carolina, plays like 09-10 Aaron Ward.

Joni asked about scoring game winning goal. Responds with "I shoot puck, it go in net, we win game, I very happy."

JR announces golf course and country club to be built near PNC Arena. All members of 05-06 team will be members free of charge.

These aren't very outlandish though. They'll probably happen.

Joni with a game-winning goal? Tough to do on his career-high 8 SOGs next year...

He scores the GWG to get us into the playoffs, and the guy in the stands behind you complains about how useless he is. It'll happen.

With the 5-1 loss part already being covered, I believe that this along with the Joni Pitkanen instances are the most likely to happen, even in our game day trolls.
