Just visited the NJ GDT. Obviously public schools aren't as effective up there. Poor kids.

I cannot believe people actually look like that. Do they not have mirrors in Jersey?

I'm being completely serious. How do you wake up in the morning, do...THAT...to yourself and feel comfortable enough to leave the house?

Of course, if everyone up there looks like that, there's really no comparison to see what they're doing is wrong. Sad.

Maybe all that smog is just messing with their heads.

These are indisputable facts.
Wait wait wait. Does low quality home brewing count instead of distilling moonshine? If so I'm still good.

I don't know....I'm from New Jersey all my life...I really don't know anybody like those people and I went to highschool were some of those people in the video said they were from (wayne NJ)...

Most of my friends enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fishing....I guess I just hungout with a more hippy/natrual type crowd.

Big beards, plaid wool lots of home made beer was more my type of people.

Edit:
And we "dipped" also -- Cope was big....I guess I'm the redneck

You have to know where to go, during the day they rest in the tanning booths. As soon as the moon comes up look in any local trashy clubs, or just listen for crappy club music.

Seriously. It's as if they've never heard of civility. I know most if not all GDTs here on this board talk about the game or some silly meme and hardly if ever mention the opposing fanbase. 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. Doesn't matter if they get absolutely demolished in the 2nd.

If the Hurricanes can win this game, against what is a significant rival, that will leave 21 more games after the Olympic break... Do you think that they will then have a reasonable chance of possibly climbing their way into a Playoff spot?

A 9-1 run is the sign of a strong team, and if they win this one that's what they'll have. Imagine, Hurricanes vs Capitals, 1st Round... I'd love to see Ward stone the Capitals.

Of course I'm hoping for the Bruins to finish higher and not have to face the Capitals in the 1st Round.

Well, they'd be 9-2, but it's possible. They'd be 9 back of the Canadiens with a game in hand. It'd be a lot more possible if they didn't drop those two very winnable games against the Oilers and Flames a few weeks ago.

The only problem is, they'll have to go on another 9-2 run after the break to even be in the discussion.

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what the issue might be because it's not like this is the first time he's had to cross the border to play a game. I don't really understand what players have to go through when they cross the border for games but they do it all of the time so I don't really see what could be the issue now.

Our top 6 look good.The Whitney - Staal - Jokinen line has been great. Looking forward to seeing the Boychuk - Sutter - Ruutu line. Could be a good one.

I'm not 100% positive, but I believe it is the same problem Tlusty had. Employment by an American Company while being a citizen of another country. He was a Canadian citizen working for a Canadian company and the process changes somewhat when a Canadian citizen works for a US organization.

If we get 2 or 3 points on that trip out there, I think we would make the playoffs... If we miss by 2-3 points, those two games will look really bad... Hell, we'd be 7-8 out... Ugh

Well, let's see... the average number of points gained by the 8 teams ahead of them, from position 6 on down, over the past 10 games is between 9 and 10 pts. Assuming that trend continues, then in 10 games after the break, the 8th spot wouldn't have more than 73 pts. If Carolina wins tonight then they'll have 55 pts. Assuming Carolina could win 7 of the first 10 after the break, and possibly also pick up 1 Tie point, then that would give them 70 pts, with still another 11 games to go.

I don't see a 9-2 run after the break as being absolutely necessary, if the teams ahead of them don't pick up the pace. If the Hurricanes can get themselves within 4 pts of a Playoff spot with 10 games to go, that could certainly give them a shot.

Hope Peters has another good showing in net. One last win before the exodus of the remaining guys would be nice. Once more into the breach for the 2009-10 squad.

On the GDT comments, the funny (and probably Freudian) thing about NJ and Carolina is that we have a lot in common. We both get a lot of undeserved stereotyping, we both catch a lot of crap for having good franchises and attendance issues, we both have beautiful areas in our states but the average joe thinks its all crime-ridden streets and traffic cones in one, and shacks and moonshine and Dukes of Hazzard in another.

The reality is very different, and we constantly have to be on the defensive.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say if they close it to 4 at any point with more than 3 to go, they'll close the deal. The only problem is getting over the current hump. They've got so many teams to pass and it feels like they've been 10-12 back forever.

Regarding our "crappy music" there are as many Southern Rockers & Country Music fans here in NJ as there is down in your parts. I personally had a brief "romantic encounter" with Alison Krauss very early in her career. Sweet gal.

I laughed my tail off at their thread too! You've just gotta take it as a joke no matter if they meant it to be or not... In my humble opinion, going over to their board and telling them off is only making matters worse. It's there GDT. If you can't laugh it off, don't go there.

I'm really in hopes for a win tonight. Eventually we'll come back to our senses and start tanking again, but we'll have plenty of time after the Olympic break to do that... My sad stat of the day: after tonight's game we only have 10 more home games this season. As sucky as this season has been at times, I'm definitely not ready for it to about be over...

It's the clash of the misinformed stereotypes: Guidos vs. Goobers.
