    Rask back early December.

    The good: the canes face just 5 current playoff teams in their next 13 games- columbus at home, totonto at home, at isle, at montreal, in san jose. 3 are winnable, and we can always pray Barry Trotz's voodoo sacrifice of 97 John Tavares jerseys will run out by the 24th. Otherwise, its Chicago twice, Detroit at home, new jersey at home (but 5 o clock saturday after friday night game), florida at home, anaheim twice, kings away. Easiest stretch of the year. The comeback begins now!! :yo:

    The bad: their last 3 games were against non playoff teams.

    The ugly: since starting 4-0-1 (95 point%), the canes have 1 ROW win in their last 10 games-against a craptastic Detroit team- spanning the previous 4 weeks. 1-1-7-1 (25 point%) in that span overall. After scoring 20 non empty net goals in their first 5 games, they have scored 16 non-empty net goals in their last 10.

    Also, dear Braintrustclaus, I know it's early, but PLEASE bring us a Faulk + 2nd for Nylander trade ASAP.

    Bleed I think I am probably just reiterating your points but if the GM borg really thought they had a Faulk trade lined up to bring in more scoring and it didn't happen, that's probably why he kept his A and seemingly overnight went from "culture change" to "core player"... they're trying to get everyone (team and fans) used to the idea of him sticking around after they trade pesce. I don't really like it but if that's the piece they have to give up to bring in more talent so be it

    I know Florida is butt right now, but anyone wanna bet that we'll be the last team to reach double figures in wins?

    Any win right now would look accidental, tbh.

    Detroit is about to pass us, if the optics of this skid could get any worse. And they started 0-7.
    I guess "grit" and "grind" is good for about 5 games, then actual real hockey talent takes over. And we have very little of that.

    So am I the only one who didn't realize we have Samsonov working in the organization?

    Director of Forward Development. Had no idea

    I looked at standings, and it's pretty depressive to look at, almost all of the teams below us can move past us because games in hand.

    Guys, it's cool. We called up PDG and Bishop, and re-assigned Roy. That'll fix our issues. Garbage in, garbage out. At least should have called up someone that might luck into a goal and has some actual talent.

    Can't screw up Charlottes run by borrowing any of their actual talent.

    Canes just need to take care of themselves at this point. Doesn't matter what goes on everywhere else if you lose all your games.

    You need to work on your spin:

    That means we have fewer games left to watch this season.

    At this point I'm unsure of the question if PDG is the answer

    You are looking at this like it was a move to help the Hurricanes. Maybe, it was a move to help the Checkers?

    I'm not so sure watching is quite the right term maybe gawking at the disaster happening to the Carolina Hurricanes on the ice.

    My doctor advised that I stop watching due to the impact it's having on my liver.
