If there's one thing going for us, it's the standings skydiving that Carolina and Winnipeg have been doing recently. Also, we have our big-3 trade deadline additions: Bishop, Lecavalier, and Cooper. Maybe even Connolly surprises us. It certaintly will get interesting!

Question from a 'Canes fan. I'll be blunt, both of our teams are pretty bad (and if you want to attack me for that, fine, but remember that we are currently tied in the standings for 5th and 6th worst in the League).

However, since I watch the 'Canes all the time, it's hard to get some perspective. Certain practices become so everyday that you forget to look at them and think "That shouldn't happen."

So can anyone offer legitimate insight on what it is like to play the 'Canes? Be brutal if you want, I know (and am hoping!) that the 'Canes are heading for a top pick.

Thanks! Good game by you guys tonight btw.

We will just have him wear a Lindback jersey and you won't know until it's too late

We're not going to argue about being bad. We hope we're better than our standings indicate, but you are what your record is.

The thing that always sticks out when playing you guys is how slow your D is. Because of that I feel we get more odd man rushes than we do against most other teams. The other thing is you aren't the most physical team, either. We have problems with physical and fast teams, so the match-up just works well in that way for us.

A lot of your forwards are really skilled and they can give us headaches, but honestly, match-up wise, I think we just have your number. It's not saying anything about the relative quality of either team, it's just a match-up that really suits us.

Glad Bishop made a good first impression!

Just wait until you end up in a shootout (but hopefully he doesn't demonstrate those skills against Ottawa).

Sens fans make me believe it's going to be hard to hate that team even if they are a division rival.

Thanks for the input.

If anyone cares, the physicality thing has been beaten to death on our board, but the lack of speed on the defense hasn't been touched on at all.

I am just confused whenever I see the Lightning play. They remind me of the 2010 version, but I look at the standings and see differently. Guess I don't watch enough hockey lol.

Big thing I read about today, check out our fenwick for this year as goals up and goals down... we were possession hogs when down by 1 or 2 but laid off horribly when up 1 or 2. I like to think we're a little better than we've played this year due to a number of reasons.

Dude there is a lot of weird **** going on with this team this year. Between quitting on Guy, how they played as a unit and what Guy wanted to accomplish, how Lacroix simplified ****, our possession at different points and scores in a game... this season is strange as ****. Things are just ass backwards.

As for the canes, i'm not really sure. I obviously don't believe tonight is an accurate representation of the team, but maybe it is to a certain extent. One impressive thing I saw was Jordan against Stamkos most of the night, and 91 was, even with his assists, mostly invisible all night.

Carolina strikes me as a team that lacks character.

Cooper made an interesting point about how the team fed off of Bishop's play tonight...

Seeing as there is a large amounts of Sens fans in here, how many of us are going to crash the Ottawa board tomorrow night for Conachers first game?

Seriously, the kids only played 35 games for us and it feels like we shipped away a home town hero.

Thanks for the input!

Many 'Canes fans feel that Jordan hasn't really been effective for us, so it's interesting that you (and others?) don't feel that way.

Apart from speed lacking on defense, the Carolina D is poor in their own end...something you don't want on a defense. I think Faulk will develop into a strong defenseman, and Gleason is a lot of things you want in a defender/hockey player in general. McBain is decent as well.

Past that, the D looks rough, and gambles a lot to make an offensive play. I'm sure you know the way Corvo plays and how often he goes forward instead of staying at home. He frustrates a lot of fans with his play and positioning. Now you have MAB, who is another offense minded defenseman, but leaves a lot to be desired. Harrison is a minutes eater (nothing wrong with that), but he's nothing special. Sanguinetti...idk what the hell he does. Every Canes game I've been to this season, his play usually involves diving because someone's gone by him, or fumbling to get into position. Not a fan of his.

I think the D will get better, and Bellemore is someone I enjoyed watching. Hopefully for Carolina he wins a roster spot next season.
