    Here's another crappy GDT placeholder. I'm hoping that Chicago Made Punk is okay, but don't yell at me for a lack of quality here.


    Last Year's Meetings

    April 27th, 2013 --- Hurricanes @ Penguins, 8-3 loss
    April 9th, 2013 --- Penguins @ Hurricanes, 5-3 loss
    February 28th, 2013 --- Penguins @ Hurricanes, 4-3 win



    Metropolitan Division Standings

    Pittsburgh Penguins 2-0-0 4
    Carolina Hurricanes 1-0-1 3
    New York Islanders 1-0-1 3
    New York Rangers 1-1-0 2
    Columbus Blue Jackets 1-1-0 2
    Washington Capitals 1-2-0 2
    New Jersey Devils 0-1-2 2
    Philadelphia Flyers 0-3-0 0

    Leading Scorers

    Pittsburgh

    Matt Niskanen 0g, 3a
    Sidney Crosby 2g, 0a
    Craig Adams 2g, 0a
    Chuck Kobasew 2g, 0a
    Pascal Dupuis 0g, 2a


    Carolina

    Jeff Skinner 0g, 3a
    Radek Dvorak 2g, 0a
    Jay Harrison 1g, 1a
    Justin Faulk 0g, 2a
    Nathan Gerbe 1g, 0a




    In their second ever Metropolitan Division showdown, the Canes look to prove they can run with the big boys, and propel themselves forward in the standings. Based on the largely accurate sample size of two games, this team is exceedingly better than years past, and a lock to make the playoffs.


    Look for Sidney Crosby, Pascal Dupuis, and Chris Kunitz to engulf Justin Faulk, as he continues to prove why he isn't legit enough to be counted on with Pitkanen out for the year and Gleason recovering from a concussion. In addition, expect at least one point from each of Brandon Sutter and Jussi Jokinen, and at least one shortside WTF goal allowed by Ward off the stick of Evgeni Malkin.



    Expected lines:


    Tlusty-E Staal-Semin
    Gerbe-J Staal-Dwyer
    Skinner-Nash-Dvorak
    Sutter-Lindholm-Bowman

    Sekera-Faulk
    Harrison-Murphy
    Bellemore-Hainsey

    Ward



    Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis
    Jokinen-Malkin-Bennett
    Jeffrey-Sutter-Kobasew
    Glass-Vitale-Adams

    Orpik-Martin
    Scuderi-Niskanen
    Maatta-Bortuzzo (I suppose)

    Fleury

    I'll be alright, thanks. Just have a disease that requires me to go in for day long treatments when it acts up. Sorry I couldn't get it done.

    It's not a problem. Real (non-HF) life comes first, always. Glad to hear that everything's okay on your end.

    But then somebody would need to make the GDT I'm supposed to make on Thursday. Can it at least wait until then?:sarcasm:

    Your name is PublicEnemey and your shoddy GDTs are our enemy. Clearly, you should change your avatar to your face.

    Your other punishment was me starting Tony Romo against you in fantasy football. MUAHAHAHAHA

    Or me, for the second time out of my three losses, having the second highest scoring team only to match up against the highest scoring team.


    Oh, and Victor Cruz being a worthless piece of **** when I need him to play well. Well, the Giants in general, but that's besides the point.



    Be my guest. :sarcasm:

    Cruz is a great receiver, you gotta consider who is throwing him the ball though.

    I don't remember great results last year when we had low effort GDT's. :cry:

    I'm not denying either part of this statement. He's just come up short on the days when I need him not to, same situation as last year.

    I have nothing against Cruz as a person or a player, but damn it, my fantasy team matters!:laugh:

    You're the one that mentioned needing to be punished and addressing THH as "Master." I'm just the guy that exploited that for a cheap laugh. :laugh:

    Fair enough.


    EDIT: I'm going to remove the second part of that post. It's rather insensitive.

    Anyway, I'll be cheering on the 'Canes for this one. We need the win more than the Pens now. This means the next Canes-Pens game I turn heel and break out my Pens gear. I do, however, fully expect Jussi to have his way with us.

    I don't mind them, but they're different enough where it just doesn't feel "Hurricanes" to me yet.
