The D: Summer of 2012 version

Whatever mess renewal of the CBA turns out to be, it's behind JR as he surveys the landscape of the off-season prior to the 2012-2013 season. No present contracts extend past that summer, except...


Life of a draft pick

The vast majority of the Carolina Hurricanes (other than undrafted signees like LaRose and Samson) begin their NHL pro careers as draft picks. They're the precious tokens given each year (if not...


JR Goes to Charlotte

Great feel good story about JR and entourage being in Charlotte last night.  Wesley and Barasso were both mentioned in the TV coverage as accompanying him on the trip, and perhaps there were...


The Fourth Line

Abramsdoug succinctly framed what could be an interesting discussion to have in the dog days of August when he summed up a discussion that had evolved within the Canes prospects thread about the...

Faceoffs - Who Da Man?

Brian LeBlanc (@puckdrops) posted an entry in his blog today discussing the faceoff situation: What went wrong in the circle this year? Although his statistical analysis is perhaps a bit broad...


Shades of '02-'03

We've made comparisons before between this particular season and the ill-fated '02-'03 season that followed the 2002 Cup run. There are certainly common elements between the two seasons:- Bad...


GF vs GA

Kind of stating the obvious here, but wanted to check out a gut instinct I think we all have by taking a look at the numbers while Fuse TV continues with a Black Eye Peas festival this snowy...
