I used to complain about Glen Wesley icing the puck. No one on this current team does it nearly as much. Although being 2 feet short of the blue line and dumping the puck seems to happen quite a bit.

The issue with expecting a Cup is that not only does it not happen, but even if it does it's less incredible. The 2006 Cup will be something I'll remember forever because I simply did not expect that we could actually win it.

Don't expect a Cup. You'll be disappointed.

Win or lose, if someone I don't like whiffs, takes a penalty, or shoots into an opponent's shinpads tonight, they DOUBLY don't belong in the NHL let alone on my fantasy team.

Hey, that sounds just like the Internet!

The fact that it's become acceptable for a grown man to say the above words is the main problem with the Internet, in my opinion.

No fan's team should expect a cup. There is too many variables.. but certainly no Canes fan should expect a cup.. We usually have more flaws then most top teams (and this year is no different) I think what I expect is for the Canes to be in the playoffs this year and we'll see where the chips fall.

I bet you the islanders fans expect every year to suck and the Devils fans probably expect every year to be in the playoffs. We're in the middle

I feel kinda sad for the Islanders. The refs could have just awarded them a goal every time we took a penalty and we would have still won the game.
