    LA Sports Arena I believe was torn down around 5 years ago? The Forum has been converted into a mostly concert arena now, and its a 'A' list concert venue, many top artists will schedule the Forum.

    2021 NHL/Miscellaneous News Thread

    That is good questions on Hulu+. I have Hulu but not Hulu+, and I have, at least at this point, avoided the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle as its SLIGHTLY cheaper to just have Disney+ paid annually and have Hulu (and no ESPN+ which to this point we had no use for). If we cannot watch those Canes...

    Lots of familiar faces and lots of new 'old' faces. Paul Bissonnette eh.? We need a lot of him and Charles Barkley in studio at the same time please.

    This will be a decision that a lot of folks, at least in the United States, are going to have to make, especially if Joe Biden's latest executive order is not deemed to be invalid. Even without that, a whole heck of a lot of US businesses are starting to tell their employees that vaccinations...

    2021 Hurricanes Post Season/Summer Thread

    Really the only thing special about that particular game on April 2nd is that its the last Saturday regular season home game on the schedule. It definitely stuck out to me as an outlier for a 'Gold' level game. The other games that fit that Gold, premium priced, no exchanges category are...

    They still have to retire Cam Ward's number, that is inevitable.

    2021 Hurricanes Post Season/Summer Thread

    Also Sat Apr 4 (vs. Minnesota) is a premium priced game. That seems very odd and random to me given the opponent (since when is Minny a draw for the Canes?), so I'm wondering if there is something special planned for the night that we don't know about yet?

    With Canes tix on sale, I have been poking around and buying 'additional' seats, exchanging tix and vouchers, etc. as I normally do. One thing I've noticed that is 'different' for STMs this season. If you look at the 'benefits' table, they indicate as always that 'additional tickets at a...

    Canes Sign Kotkaniemi To Offer Sheet/Habs Don't Match

    To me KK just needs to crack 35-40 points and show defensive awareness. KK's point total is going to be influenced significantly by who he plays with. If he ends up playing LW with Jordan Staal and Jesper Fast and on the 2PP unit with Nino, Staal, Necas and whoever our #2 PP Dman option...

    The house right next to mine was sold this past July. Officially listed just for 1 day and they got over a dozen offers on that one day without a single in person visit to the house. The offer they accepted was $80k over ask. Things around here have gotten so nutty that a new construction...

    Dundon was on SN590 The Fan on Tuesday to talk offer sheet. He also noted that all of the Canes players have been vaccinated (I will assume that is definitive until someone or some event tells us otherwise). https://www.sportsnet.ca/590/writers-bloc/tom-dundon-hurricanes-offer-sheet-kotkaniemi/

    Its just been crazy to me how many Canes fans and non-followers have been willing to rip the Canes for not being willing to give Ned a multi year deal for more than $3 million per like he was a definitive solution in goal, a "no doubter" that you turn over the keys to this Cup contender to and...

    KK Signs Offer Sheet From Canes/Habs Don't Match

    Even if KK does develop into a 2nd line forward for the Canes, there is no guarantee that would have happened with the Habs. There just is no way to know how things would have ended up. I think the Canes are hoping KK can, in the coming years, fill Vincent Trocheck or Jordan Staal's...

    Mrazek will most likely give you better than that, but there seems to be narrative that Mrazek is better than the .905 goalie he has been in the regular season over the last 5 years (he's really not) or the .901 goalie he has been in the playoffs over the last few years (which of course is not...

    Canes Sign Kotkaniemi To Offer Sheet/Habs Don't Match

    I will revisit once the season starts. But basic summary is the Canes are going to suck, Mrazek is good, Andersen has never been good and the Canes front office are clueless dummies.

    Sorry KK, Canes cannot change the contract to pay you $6,100,082. That is against CBA rules, but nice try! :)

    Around the League 2019-2021 Edition

    Mrazek went .905 for the Canes in 19-20 , the last time the NHL played anything that looked like a regular season before the Covid shutdown. You are talking about how Freddie Andersen's recent seasons show a decline. Yet Mrazek's last 5 seasons are: .901 .902 .914 .905 .923 (in 12 games)...
