    No, we lose against Hawks, we only win vs them when they are good, this year we are losing vs them.

    You’d be thrilled by picking an all-star in the 3rd round?

    He’s been disappointing. There’s no way around that.

    New team, new system. I haven’t seen his games in tri-city so I can’t speak to his performance but I think their exists the possibility that his production would drop for a bit as he gets adjusted.

    Huh? I'm not being deliberately obtuse, I just cannot understand where this sentiment comes from.

    At his stage of development he should be scoring more than that as an offense first #14th overall pick.

    True. But we don't know what he's been asked to do either.

    It's a very real possibility that he's been asked to shore up his defensive game. The CAR org has been known to do that, and certainly Tri-Cities coaching could be pushing it, too. Also, maybe he's not getting the gifts to his offensive stats that he got in Calgary...things like #1 PP time, offensive zone starts, etc.

    Then again, maybe he's just forgotten how to play hockey.

    Clearly he sucks, he's already a has-bean, and is the worst defenseman in Canada. Didn't he single-handedly nearly undermine the WJCs for them this year? Case closed.

    More than the individual players, I think the draft from a fan perspective where we're really just regurgitating what we read for the most part in terms of projecting the future, is about types of players. The Canes needed and still need a fast Eric Cole style game breaking power forward.

    The experts said Nishushkin was that guy. Instead we got the balanced playmaking center for the team with no goalscorers, and stuck him on the wing.

    Haha I'm trying to. I've been doing it for 20, since I was a 4 year old at the Canes innagural game/season.

    If the puck is in the air that’s not enough evidence to overturn anyway. If you can’t see it on the overhead it’s almost impossible to overturn plays like that.

    Ahh, the holy one has graced us with his presence for yet another opportunity to bestow his great knowledge upon us. Except, who the **** didn't think Ryan sucked? There may have been some arguments about how much he sucked, but I really can't recall anybody endorsing Ryan as some useful NHL player. "Nobody listened"? :laugh:

    Using high draft positions on players that don't quite pan out, or are busts all together. Sorry, bad metaphor. Please don't feel the need to defend Francis, and/or his drafting capabilities. I think he's done ok, and I know plenty of teams have similar luck in the draft. I'm just bandwagon hating this team right now and I certainly wouldn't classify myself as a Francis supporter. I'll be fine after a ham sandwich, and a Coke.

    I don’t understand the point of being a member on a message board that you only visit to tell everyone else how much smarter you are.
