Ugh, it never ends. People are just obsessed with South Florida sports attendance for some reason. Of course they got it all wrong by the way, as usual.

Just got back from the arena. The players did an autograph signing outside the arena for the fans. It was packed, luckily I had a spot in front and got plenty of signatures on my mini-banner. I was so close to getting Huberdeau, but he had to go back in. He was one of the last to leave. I still grabbed Gudbranson and Versteeg though. I even asked him if I could call him "Verstache" and he smiled and said to call him whatever we want.

Great night and the place was packed in the first period. The crowd got thinner as the game went on, but you couldn't tell if you went to grab a drink.

I thought I heard Goldie say there were 19,600+ in attendance tonight.

Not too shabby for a team with a bunch of "fair-weathered fans".

It was weird. Only section of the arena that wasnt full.

Glad I went to the game; other than a gaff by Caruso, could of been a shutout.

Note to all fans

Seats behind the benches at BB&T are all part of Club Red. For $16,500 you get a seat to every event at BB&T and access to the lounge/restaurant.

These will largely be corporate clients. Those seats will probably be empty more often than not as even when someone shows up, they'll probably spend much of the game at the restaurant/lounge.

This will of course make it look horrible on TV.

Just got back from the game. Random thoughts...

1. Huberdeau is going to be so much fun to watch. We deserve it.

2. Did anyone else enjoy watching Huberdeau work Gretzky's office on the PP like a wiley veteran as much as I did?

3. Kovalev can stick handle in a phone booth. I don't care that he has bricks in his skates - he's dangerous enough to open space for #11. Hope he and Mueller can stay healthy.

4. Strachan had a very solid game. Would be great if he made things touch for Dineen when all the wounded return.

5. Love Hubs but Theo should have gotten first star. If he didn't stand up the way he did, that game could have easily slipped away in the second.

6. So glad they didn't have a ceremony to raise the division banner.

7. The 7th man stuff is ridiculous pandering. Does anyone actually like it?

8. The second line will not play like this all season. Need to get that first line back together and humming if we plan on making the playoffs.

9. I want to see more hitting out of that 4th line. Hope to see more physical play moving forward and looking forward to watching a larger Gudbranson unleashed on the NHL this year.

10. The drive home seems so much faster after wins....

I don't think it's that bad. It was cool seeing the players all wear "7th man" jerseys during warmups and the banner wasn't a huge thing either.

It's also right at the entrance and screws up the foot traffic around the arena.

I feel badly for the die hard fans who were uprooted fom those seats.

it's a very old ploy in the soccer world, "the 12th man", used by many die hard club fans around the world, just doesn't seem to fit into hockey or American sports....but meh, it doesn't really bother me, just thought it was funny that they put up a banner for it lol

Just finished watching the game.

Wow. Wow wow wow wow wow.

Now I'm not about to lose it and call us best in the East. We played well, but we also looked sloppy. Both teams did really.

We came out swinging though, a GREAT start to the season. A shot of confidence to Hubs, Kovalev, Mueller and even Upshall after a tough year last year.

Huberdeau is ridiculous. We haven't had a guy this dynamic on offense since Bure. He is the real deal. Kids going to have a wonderful career, hopefully entirely in our uniform.

Kovalev looked really good out there. As a guy who's pushing 40, his natural gift for offense is still there. Yah he's slow, but as someone pointed out, it's a nice contrast to Hubs and Mueller flying around the o-zone while he holds the anchor down. His vision is incredible.

Kuba looks terrible. My goodness he is slow. He could very easily be our worst defenseman this season. Let's just hope it's a conditioning thing.

Checking lines looked good. Good speed up the neutral zone (Matthias and Skille) and got pucks deep. Can't ask for much more.

I can say that I'm excited. I really want Goc, Bergy and Steeger back, as well as Kuli and Guds so we can see what this team has to offer. 3 full lines of offense now. I just hope injuries don't riddle us.

Let's carry this momentum into Monday night and keep these winning games going.

I just watched the condensed game and Huberdeau seemed to perform very well. I'm very excited on his future, he probably might go far

Good win.

One thing: I HATE that people are tossing rats on the ice after a regular season win. It's a playoff tradition!!


And yes that picture is take right after a start of a period, but seemed like some people left after the 1st period when we were up 4-0 Because it was packed in the 1st.

Um what? The tradition started in the regular season 95-96 and escalated through the playoffs. If the fans waited until the playoffs to throw rats, well a decade is a long time :p

Yea, that's stupid.

Definite hockey man there....

I read thru the thread this morning to see what everyone was thinking about the game and had a few thoughts I wanted to share:

1. Ellerby didnt look as bad in person as you guys were saying. He seemed to have to cover for Kuba quite a bit (including having to take a penalty just to prevent a scoring chance because of Kuba's gaffe) and played a mostly simple, stable game. IMO, he played better than Kuba, Strachan & Caruso in that game.

2. I think you guys covered the Kovalev-Mueller-Huberdeau line enough so not much I will say there. But I did notice times where yes Huberdeau was in the middle of the ice instead of the left wing. Guess its just gonna be free flowing some about where he plays at times.

3. Defense left Theo out to dry quite a few times. I know its not our normal defense but the team as a whole should've been better about helping him out. Theo definitely had an awesome night and so long as we can get him some rest throughout this yr, I think we will definitely be fine in goal.

4. While the top line didnt score, I noticed some good defensive play from them several times which is significant too. If you keep the other team's dangerous top line with 2 guys that can score at will (Eric Staal & Alex Semin) off the scoresheet, thats just as good as scoring yourself. I saw several takeaways by Weiss and he won 55% of his faceoffs so we kept control of the puck that way.

5. Coming into the arena, was anyone else annoyed how they were scanning the tickets inside instead of at the door? It seemed like a big cluster ******* doing it that way instead of the old way. It didnt save on employees and didnt save on time and wasnt better for safety. I'm definitely planning to say something to Viner about that one.

6. Matthias & Mueller kinda suck at the faceoff. Definitely feel like both would be better as wingers for sure. I knew what Colorado fans said about Mueller as center so I guess that is what they meant. But I liked the way Matthias played last night and was consistent on pressuring the puck carrier for the Canes (whoever it was).

7. Club Red...it took forever for that area to fill up but was mostly filled by game time. Later, yes it didnt look good with how many seats down low were empty. I know the team has said they've only technically sold like 50% of the Club Red seats so guess its gonna look like that most nights. I did see quite a few people sitting at like bar stools above the seats so they were still watching the game, just not in the seats. I did that at a Marlins game this past yr sitting in the 200 level, was just easier to get food & drinks throughout the game than sitting in my seat and the view was just as good. I'm gonna see if I can get a game in Club Red from work and see what its like and whether what we all assume is true (everyone just staying inside the lounge area) is actually true.
