You are right. We'd probably have better luck on the PP if we chucked barrels and bananas at them. Setting up and getting to the net certainly isn't working..Ill try anything at this point.

Just a piss poor effort all around. Lazy skating, lazy passing, and lazy commentating.

I swear, if I hear Tripp talk about going into the "dirty areas" again and have that mental image appear again, I'm going to drink myself to sleep.

We've had the annual Walker/Witt fight though. Those two just don't like each other, haven't since playing together in Nashville. Apparently, they fought during a practice or a pregame warmup there.

Park Walkers ass in front of the net for the entire minute and fire away. I say 1 minute because we will surely negate this PP with a holding call of some sort.

I was really looking forward to this game. Pop quiz - Who's power went out 20 minutes before the game? Mine. Lovely. Missed most of the first, caught on right at Scotty Walkers fight. Nice tilt. Witt definitely has some size on Walks, good scrap. Love watching Walker fight, just hope he doesn't bust up any knuckles, bones, etc. in the process.

And apparently we've come out pretty flat again aside from a bit of physicality. Not good. One thing I really expected from this team was terrific work ethic mainly based on it being a veteran team with a lot of guys who have simply 'won' in years past. That combined with riding the emotions of last years superb run, I expected a good start. It didn't have to be a stack of wins to date, but I expected a damn hard working group. All we're seeing here is a laid back team of vets (who clearly aren't playing with the thought of they have anything to prove) who have become far to comfortable and complacent. I really had a good feeling about this team and I liked how JR put it together. Overall, this has just been a bit disappointing. I don't mind losing so long as we put in a solid work ethic. I hope we shape up and get in a groove here. This definitely seems to be a team who rides the waves of highs and lows.

Like I said, I didn't see much of the 1st, but from what I have read, heard from the broadcast team and what the box score tells, once again isn't so pretty. 16-6 in the faceoff circle? Ouch.

Let's hope we can shape up for the second. I'll just hope after 20 minutes we've shaken of the rust of a few days off and only having played 2 games in 10 days before heading into this one. No excuses though, these guys have been around the block and shouldn't be stepping foot on the ice not ready to go. That's one knock I didn't think we'd see too often this season.

Thinking about it, wait until after the season to can Mo. If we're going to suck I want to REALLY suck. Fowler or Seguin would look REAL nice on our roster in the long run, and we should be able to get a late first for Whitney, a mid 2nd for Cullen, a late 2nd for A. Ward and possibly a 2nd for Corvo.

Flat doesn't begin to describe it. For both teams. This is a floatfest.

And you're way undervaluing several of our guys, especally at trade deadline prices.

And we keep Corvo. Whitney perhaps, Ward and Cullen are fine to go.

I agree with you on the other part- if we're going to suck, flat out suck. But winning would be better.

Well, that's the only way we're going to score on the PP.

Fluke goal but I'll take it. At least the PP looked a little better.

PP goal by Canes is a fluke. Scoring a fluke goal on PP is a double fluke.

We are incredibly lucky.

Isles guys think Cullen did that on purpose.

Whatever, it went in.

Always is, always. I'd MUCH rather make the playoffs as a 6 or even an 8 seed then have a top 3 pick any time. I wouldn't trade our magical runs in 02 or last year for anything (I won't classify 06 as magical, we WERE the best team in the league, period). But really the team has showed no signs of being able to even get that far.



As for seeing Staal blast away like that from the point, there is only one word for my thoughts on that:

MORE!

In a battle between two ECHL-calibre teams, it is only fitting that a decorated ECHL veteran such as Matt Cullen scores the Hurricanes' first goal.

Nice free ride in our own zone we gave them there. Brutal defensive effort, absolutely brutal. Far too many white jerseys standing around watching it all unfold for my liking.

And sorry, that looked like high stick on the 3rd one there. Absolutely SHOCKED that there's no review.
