Discussion in 'Carolina Hurricanes' started by HisIceness, Sep 28, 2017.
I'm told they went all in with the Twin Peaks one.
Top Secret! really is one of my all time faves.
I like the picture of the two guys on the front page of the article. You can sense the "What the **** did I do to deserve this?" look on their face.
They did: great episode.
Angie Tribeca is a decent spiritual successor to Police Squad/Naked Gun if not quite as charming as the original. If you like Zucker bros movies it scratches a very similar itch
Florida and NJ both win in shootouts... I guess if they're going to win it's better for the canes that it happen there instead of regulation. Frustrating but expected that teams who try to get better do so, teams who do nothing tread water
Florida did nothing at the deadline either. They just happen to be the hottest team in hockey.
They brought in Vatrano who will probably not amount to be a major difference maker but did score last night in his first game off the IR
And then there's the Islanders, who arguably made the most moves out of the bubble teams and accomplished nothing because of it.
Nothing has changed since the deadline. Florida was already trending up, and New Jersey was already in a WC spot.
Unsurprisingly, the impact of minor trade deadline acquisitions was overblown, simply because the Canes did nothing.
Islanders did nothing as well.
Trading for Chris Wagner or Brandon Davidson is a minor move.
NJ lighting people up makes me jealous. Before Shero came in they looked to have nothing going. I understand not everyone can win the lottery and fleece Chia.
Looks bad now that RF didn't trade Faulk for Hall.
I realize we have no way to know if that was an option......
The Red Wings are 0-9-1 in their last 10.
The mighty have fallen, hard.
Oh it was an option.
That's the impact of a strong GM. Shero built a winner in Pittsburgh (he was the one who gave Atlanta a pile of trash for Hossa), now he is building a winner in New Jersey. Some of that is luck, like winning the lottery, but a much greater part of it is being the son of a HOF manager who was raised into the NHL's inner circle and taught the finer nuances of team-building from a young age. He's simply better at his job than most of his peers, and the results show.
I want to trust Dundon to find someone of this caliber, but the early results aren't promising.
What's funny is if you go to the MB thread about winning the lottery there are lots of people who seem to think Detroit "deserves" it. I mean...these guys had 25 years of playoffs and one year of crap and people feel sorry for them?
I sure as hell don’t. I swear some fans care more about prospects and forget the game is actually about winning. I’d take 25 years of playoff appearances over Dahlin. HF mentality.
Also, completely unrelated but how is it that Florida can be in playoff contention after the ridiculous deals they made surrounding the expansion draft? They gave up a ton of scoring.
So this is the game I was watching yesterday instead of the Canes. Clarkson defends its national title with a beautiful goal in OT:
And if you want to feel old:
That's JS Giguere's daughter (or maybe niece?)
Dear lord, that's horrifying. I met Giguere in a bar after a Whalers game in downtown Hartford. He was 18, they called him up on an emergency basis for a few games the year they drafted him. He was hiding in a dark corner in a beautiful suit, I couldn't understand any of his english and I didn't see any of the Whalers around. He looked super confused, like maybe the guys left him and he had no idea where to go. He seemed embarrassed to be recognized so I left him alone, it was the first time I saw an NHL player up close that was younger than me. Just a scared underage kid in a bar.
And that's his kid....
Daughter. Second highest scoring freshman in D1 this year, fourth in scoring overall.
The article I read today made a point that there was no relation.
Edit: I found it
• For the third time in five years, Clarkson’s women’s team won the NCAA title. The overtime goal, which was scored by Elizabeth Giguere (No relation to J.S.), was a terrific one. [NY Times]
They might want to check her official bio next time.
Wow, I even added the exact place I read it. That's crazy.
1997... good ****ing lord he was still playing in the QMJHL at that point.
I just read an article about him retiring that talks about Mackinnon living with him, and his family of three sons. No mention of a daughter, and she was born when he was an 18-19 year old in junior. His wife's name is different than the mother listed in the bio.
Maybe he got someone pregnant back then, but she didn't live with him? Coincidence with the Fathers name?
Jean-Sebastien Giguere Announces Retirement
ps it's a coincidence with the father name.
Clarkson tops Colgate in OT for NCAA women's hockey championship at Ridder
