    Games in hand matter. Having more opportunity to bank points than your opponent does increases the probability that you wind up with more points total.

    That's not how it works man. It's that I feel the Ranger are better then the 'Canes (Admittedly on the ice this season they were)It's not about facts it's about feels...

    I am glad Willy is back for one last run. If anyone can get them ready to play it's him. The kids we have are too talented to get the stench of losing on them. I believe they learned a lot last year about what it takes to be a champion. Svech make papa proud! Yes I am claiming him. Get over it.

    Since relocation the Canes must have the best playoff series winning %, right? Other than maybe Vegas?

    We don't get in often, but we do make some deep pushes/runs when we're in!

    It would take a lot of work to get this answer, because you need to figure out every team's record from 1997 forward.

    What's easier to say, is that if you drop the Whalers playoff series record (1-8) the Hurricanes are 11-5 in playoff series. At .688, that edges out the Oilers' .686 for the highest in NHL history.

    Sorry y'all, I know we want that stat to mean shit, but that stat doesn't mean shit. It is dramatically eclipsed by our inability to even make it to the playoffs for a whole decade. I know it makes us feel better, but it ain't foolin' anybody.

    Now, those Prince of Wales Cups and that Stanley Cup -- no one can take those, ever.

    That stat does mean shit and you don't have to come to the banner raising if you feel that way.

    I'm sorry, you are correct. That stat does mean shit, as in, that stat is roughly analogous to shit.

    The shit banner? Eh, I'm fine with it, just so my seats aren't directly underneath.

    Guys, I'm legit worried about this series. I mean I know the Canes are scared shitless to play the Rangers as seen in their attempt to do everything possible to avoid them. It might be best just to bow out since not only are they better than us at hockey despite having less points and wins in more games but they are also morally superior to us as well :(





    I think we should all be reserved to the fact that this is likely going to happen...

    I realize series wins is sort of a cherry-picked stat, but other than just plain old game wins, what else is there that's more important that doesn't have banners/hardware associated with it? And I mean speaking of, the canes have raised several banners and pieces of hardware since relocating that other teams (including the Rangers) would be jealous of. For fun:

    Canes since 97: 1 cup, 2 prince of Wales, 3 division wins, 6 playoff berths (not counting this year)
    NYR since 97: 1 prince of Wales, 11 berths

    " You're saying a playoff series win don't mean nothing, and I'm saying it does. Now look, we've had thousands of fans watch all these series wins and they've all meant something. We may act like they don't, but they do, and that's what's so ****ing cool about them"

    I'm good with looking at it both ways. Some teams would kill for the deep runs we've had. Even at the expense of a long ass drought. What good is making it in every year if you're never getting further than the 1st or 2nd round. Ask a team and fans like Washington all those years.

    Of course, as far as that stat, our winning percentage is only good because we've been in so few times. The more you get in, the less deep runs you'll have and probably more one and ones. So of course it doesn't mean much in that way. All it means is our team has taken advantage of limited opportunities.

    I'm more than willing for this team to make the playoffs every year going forward of course. I just hope it isn't somehow at the expense of the occasional deep runs we've grown accustomed to.

    Ok, so I kinda ended up just skipping through the last 5 min after this dude spent 5 min repeating the same 3-4 things about 20x each...but did he even once mention (or even realize) that it isn't the CANES 1st they got, but the later of the CAR or TOR pick? If TOR doesn't get a top 10, and we win the lottery, WE get the #1 pick and they would get #11+. They need BOTH Toronto to get a top 10 (defers to next year) AND the Canes to get #1 for his dream scenario. Now as a Canes fan I don't put the odds any lower than 50/50 (because that's just how it seems to go), but he doesn't even seem to acknowledge that, just that we have to lose and get #1 and they get it?

    Of course it doesn’t mean shit. But it could be a fun response to the ‘lol garbage franchise for the next storm surge they should turn into airplanes and fly back to Hatfud’ crowd.

    The way to shut them up is to beat them. I hope the boys focus and go do just that.

    I didn't watch all of it either. He seems like a f***ing idiot to be honest.
