That wasn't Shutdown to which that happened. Shutdown is posting posts from the Canes FB page.

Looking at the PR news and notes it would appear that Cory Stillman and Kevin Weekes are the siren sounders. Just a random fact I'm throwing out there.

Why on earth do they list that under "Officials" on the lineup sheet?

Also, what's Weekes doing in town? Stillman is working for us now, but isn't Weekes still doing HNiC?

With the chemistry that Tim and Joe show, I wouldn't be surprised to see Corvo back on the top pairing soon and being the elite shut-down two-way defenseman that we all know he can be. This bit of adversity could be a watershed moment for this hockey team."

John: "That's right, Tripp. Corvo and Timmy Gleason have been a formidable shutdown pairing for years. In the '10-'11 season they finished a combined -25, which is a great number."

Tripp: "Indeed it is. Joe Corvo brings the skating ability to keep up with the top forwards in the NHL. We all remember that game where he shut down Alex Ovechkin almost four years ago. What a performance. What. A. Performance."

*Five minutes into the game, Sanguinetti is skating the puck out of the defensive zone when he turns around and rifles a slapshot past Cam Ward.*


Tripp: "That's a tough play. A tough play. If you watch the replay, you can see that Pitkanen's pass is a few inches ahead of Sanguinetti, which means he has to reach forward to receive the puck. You have to think that Joni's bad play may have interrupted Sanguinetti's thought process and made him totally unaware that he and Cam Ward were on the same team. These are the types of things that a young defenseman will learn from...you have to be aware when Joni's on the ice that he is going to make a pass and you may have to put yourself into a position to receive it. From an objective standpoint, Joni Pitkanen carries the lion's share of blame for this goal."

Wow, that is hilarious, especially if you read it using Tripp and Forslund voices in your head. I thought it was real until the second line....LOL

I now have tuesdays off at work. all tuesdays. which works out well for the schedule considering im usually working when games are, and there are plenty of games on tuesdays this season. also hoping that my computer lab over here runs fast enough so i can watch the streams of the game. if nothing else i can follow with gamecast and radio. better than nothing i suppose but really hope i can get video. trying it out tonight!

Looks like we know who will be the scratches tonight per Chip.

Dalpe, Boychuk, McBain getting the late work after skate.
And it looks like the 4th line will have some size with Westgarth and Welsh

Don't know how to feel about this game. I want to believe that we'll come out a lot better than we did against Florida, but I don't see the result being any different.

On the positive side, at least if we start 0-2, we'll be in good company (Rangers and Philly, off the top of my head).

Given how much churn there is in the Canes line-up and the short training camp, I have no idea what to expect this early in the season. I suspect it will be 5-10 games before we get a feel for what they have. Hopefully they don't dig themselves too big of a hole before they figure it out.

I have a feeling the canes turn it around tonight and we all forget about the last game.

Muller seems to have shuffled the lines and PP units almost completely.

He must come into camp 20lbs overweight with a donut hanging out of his mouth or something. I know he was underwhelming last year but he is our 4th best defenseman right now and he's in the press box.

Is that an assessment after watching practice in 2013, or are you saying that he's *supposed* to be the 4th best?

Supposed to be. That's why I am asking if he gained 20 lbs and is a bum in practice.

If Muller has decided McBain isn't in game shape yet then fine, don't play him. I would hope that is the case though because Corvo doesn't need to have a long leash. We're screwed defensively if he does.

In fairness, Dalpe is sick and Chip said if he was healthy, he'd likely still be in the line-up so we're really talking about Boychuk.

It was reported that Muller wanted a more defensive 2nd line to go up against Stamkos/St. Louis and he wanted a bigger 4th line. So that would leave only the 3rd line or 1st line for Boychuk and Bowman. Bowman played better in Florida and is getting rewarded so that leaves the 3rd line for Boychuk. Who on the 3rd line are you going to scratch for Boychuk? Anyhow, it's still early in the season and I suspect we'll see lots of juggling of lines and guys in and out until they settle in some.

How about just use your moderator power and change the title of this thread to a GDT?

520/1520. Though I've got nothing on 1520 and I thought 520 was the special events channel. I know TWC has SportsSouth on some channel though.
