Hurricanes bringing 25-40cm of snow.
Last home game for Stone and Duchene. Hopefully the fans give Stone a nice send off.
Drive safely to the game tomorrow. Lots of snow coming.
Hopefully the NHL sends extra pucks lol, we have like 6 or 7 guys who should be moved if the ultimate goals is to spend as little as possible on the entire operation while still technically icing a legal roster, will be fascinating to see how many of giveaways will try and grab a "souvenir" puck for their last game and how they will determine that...no joke wonder if they will meet and discuss it at all behind closed doors?
With the amount of talent set to inevitably walk over the coming Eugene Melnyk owned years should the team consider charging the players for pucks?
Is there a chance the game could be postponed considering the forecast?
Great Thread Title..
This will be a tough one to give away tickets too. Nothing comes easy with this team
The ‘canes might get stuck here. Their next game is Friday in Edmonton.
My guess is 11-7 again; They'll call up a forward but doubt he plays
When I first read that pair of tweets from Warren I thought he meant they were calling up a forward to back up Nilsson instead of a goalie.
I think I have become too accustomed to this organization doing ridiculous things.
The Canes have always been the blandest team in the league for me. Drab uniforms, vague/nondescript location (just "Carolina"? Really?), no stars. Even their Stanley Cup win was thoroughly non memorable.
Nilsson/Boro seems like the best bet
Then call up another D so they can still roll 11/7
I expect a win, 3-2 overtime. Stone with his last goal as a Sen.
Yeah, I'm calling a cancellation tomorrow.
Over a foot of snow and high winds on top of that? No way they're risking lives over a hockey game.
In all honesty, the game should be canceled tonight.
If it's not, drive safe.
Welcome, Carolina. What you are about the experience, the Southern states call in the the National Guard. We just call it Tuesday. Enjoy.
My office just sent everyone home for the next 2 days with their laptops. SPECIFICALLY said not to come in until Thursday at the earliest.
It's going to be a clusterfork out there over the next 24hrs. I'm on the bus home right now, then to the grocery store to make sure we're stocked up, then I'mma hunker down and hide feom Mother Nature.
If they go through with playing the game, tonight's attendence has the potential to be the worst in the history of the franchise.
Sens need 24 more wins out of the 27 games left to make the playoffs.. 1 at a time boys, 1 at a time...
If Nilsson wins this one... I really hope someone throws hamburgers on the ice.. lets get this going!!
Well it will be one of the worst in people actually attending the game, but in terms or tickets sold/distributed it will probably be over 10,000. I wouldn't go even if I was given seats on the glass. Not worth the risk of the drive.
How much is skidoo parking tonight?
I kept trumpeting to anyone that would listen that this would be the lowest selling game of the year, because of the weather, the opponent and the fact that I assumed at least one of the UFA's would be gone by now.
It'll certainly be the lowest attended game all year, but it's obviously mostly weather related now. To all those planning to attend, stay safe out there.
I'm disappointed in your dire predictions about the weather. Yeah, a foot of snow in Raleigh would shut things down here. But in Canada? I saw a Canadian temperature chart that said that at 0F, Canadians have the last cookout of the season and not until -100F do they pull the ear-flaps down. And people are making the French toast runs (milk, bread, and eggs) to the stores? You're destroying my faith.
