Makes me wish that the Canes go on a run and grab the 8 seed to face the Devils in the first round, because we all know what would inevitably happen.
I told you guys long ago, I put a hex on the Devils after they beat us in 2001. The Francis hit, the Willis hit, the classless Devs interviews where they mocked us. I cursed them. They will lose again and again every time they face us in the playoffs, often in bizarre and improbable ways. Karma must be restored. And Karma is a real b|tch.
Anyway I haven't been on the boards this year before now, so I bet you are all wondering what my thoughts on this season are.
1) The Canes might yet take the 8th seed. I remain optimistic.
2) No matter if they make the playoffs or not, any year in which we beat the Devils is a successful year.
3) At least we haven't had an embarassing first-round exit since 2001. I'd rather miss the playoffs altogether. Every time we make it, we go on a run. I'll take it.
Koel is, like, so totally awesome. Remember when he lifted the Cup after breaking his neck? How can y'all diss a player who has done so much for this organization? He'll be a Hurricane 4 Life. I think we need to look into extending his contract this summer. Maybe 4-5 years with a NTC? Stall needs him.
