Darling had a .938 in the preseason? Dam son.
I'm an engineer so thought the apostrophe was ok. Will need one of the english/journalism majors on here to weigh in as this could decide the whole season. My understanding, going back to grade school which is a LONG time ago, is an apostrophe is used to show possession, thus:
Burnside: Canes' Star, meaning star of the Canes
Civian: Hurricanes' fans, meaning fans of the Hurricanes.
I understand your point about passionate though so will defer to others on this.
English major who used to work at the UNC j-school.
To say "the passionate people who are fans of the Carolina Hurricanes", you've got two options:
the passionate Carolina Hurricanes fans
the Carolina Hurricanes' passionate fans <--- lets us keep that sweet sweet apostrophe
This might make it more clear:
the lazy dog owner
the lazy dog's owner
the dog's lazy owner
If we're saying the owner is lazy and the fans are passionate, we have to either drop that possessive apostrophe (lazy dog owner) or reverse the word order (dog's lazy owner). Otherwise we're saying the dog is lazy and the Hurricanes are passionate.
edit: but this all does ultimately come down to what vorbis pointed out earlier -- in traditional journalism there would be an editor to catch and correct this sort of nitpicky error (probably a jerk like me who took sadistic glee in it). I'd speculate that part of what makes the Athletic so cheap is that they don't bother with that kind of quality control.
It's the difference between "Carolina Hurricanes" as an adjective or as a proper noun.
An adjective doesn't need an apostrophe of possession.
Apostrophe means it's a proper noun, so the adjective "passionate" applies to it, rather than noun "fan". It should be, 'Carolina Hurricanes' passionate fans".
But "Carolina Hurricanes" and "Carolina Hurricanes'" are pronounced the same. English has super strict rules for the order of adjectives which everyone intuitively knows. Placing "Carolina Hurricanes " before "passionate" sounds wrong.
Fair enough! Now I know why I went into engineering.
He just looks so uncoordinated doing it though. His rebound control is non-existent. I'm guessing once he's healthy, we'll see a 50/50 split until one takes the crease by force. All that is out the window if Darling is hurt a while and Mrazek comes out ablaze.
his rebound control actually seemed pretty decent yesterday before he left with his injury. he was getting a lot more pucks into the corner or out of play if he wasn't able to swallow them up. last season, those same pucks typically ended up just sitting in the slot or in the crease for easy tap-ins.
he still doesn't hold onto as many shots as you would like to see, but at least the rebounds he is giving up are going where he seemingly wants them to
In my former job I was a deputy SAP girl in a plastics factory, and we had this secretary-type of co-worker who understood, it seemed to us, her only job to be scanning our misresgistrations from the SAP system. She would print them out and hand them to us, and go back to re-post cat pictures on the company email.
"Useless-Alice", we used to call her behind her back.
We all got sacked when the plant closed.
A canes goalie taking the crease by force?
How long have we been waiting for that to happen?
It’s very clear that if we get that Scott Darling in the regular season we are set for goaltending. Since the end of last year, every time he’s had a chance to prove he’s gotten better, he’s done so.
Hopefully the injury is minor, we get Mrazek for a game or two, and he comes back without missing a beat.
A high boss, a hoy.
Darling looks like he struggles on shots in close. i looked at all the recaps in pre-season where he played pretty much every goal scored is just outside of the paint. Also they all seemed to be a result of defensive break downs as you shouldn't let players get that close for a shot and one was the breakaway by Fiala.
I hope darling isn't out for an extended period of time but we will get to throw one of the kids into the fire particularly ned or booth see how they turn out.
That's a good way to put it. The apostrophe magically transforms the adjective (CH, describing "fans") into a noun (CH, possessing "fans") through an ancient black alchemy that we inherited from the French (of course).
I want Darling to be healthy so bad. I really hope he’s okay, he doesn’t need to be starting with a nagging injury he can’t get rid of
"Carolina Hurricanes" in "Carolina Hurricanes fan" is no adjective. It's a noun adjunct, or, synonymously, attributive noun.
This would be the apostrophe?
Is maybe good we didn't get young D'Artagnan.
Let’s not nitpick please
The concept developed through the man's fight against the apostrophe, and deserves to bear its true name.
Old English seem to have had s-gens-genitive without the apostrophe. Well, -es. And -a if it's plural which you possess.
And I'll have to eat several helpings of crow.
Enemy shoot puck
Darling no bounce
Save us Russian overlords
Okay so we will expect Slavin’s play to carry over into the regular season. Looking forward to seeing him put up 164 pts this year.
Also I so hope Darling isn’t held out long or that this injury nags him the rest of the season. He worked his ass off this summer. He just seems poised for a rebound year, and it’s gonna be one of those feel good stories.
I thought we were all Russian bots....?
