  1. Holy Crap. I didn't expect to see him as an announcer on TSN, right next to Aaron Ward. What, did the KHL get rid of him? Or wasn't he able to sell his pad in Wake Forest?

    I'm out for real if this happens. I don't care if he's in the front office doing some paperwork, but if he steps foot on the bench again I'm done.

    As long as they subtitle it, and I can understand, it's usually brutally honest, slightly funny. Which is good for an analyst, terrible when he's coaching your losing team!

    Mo has a legit hockey mind. When guys like him, who really understand the game of hockey, do some work as analysts, it really highlights how cheated we are by getting stuck with Mike Millburys and Jeremy Roenicks.

    Very much this.

    I also find it funny that Maurice was always chastised for not "playing the kids" and relying too much on vets....and now we've found out that pretty much all of those kids were AHLers all along.

    Don't you dare defend MO. That system he had sucked and was outdated. He had one fluke run in 2003 and another fluke run in 2009 with Lavi's team. The whole time our PP and offensive zone pressure blew. Do you remember the fire Maurice chants starting in the nose bleeds and working their way down on a nightly basis in 2011/2012? I sure do....

    Yes, the fans, the fans are always right!

    By the way...the PP has sucked before and after Maurice. It's a common theme.

    Why am I sparring with you? You're the bipolar one that changes his mind every day on the prospects of this team...

    5 'fluke' playoff series wins as huge underdogs is a lot of 'fluke' playoff series wins.

    The 'Canes were above the league average in goals for during Mo's second tenure here. So were the Leafs in his two years there. They must have been really, really good at scoring off the rush if the "offensive zone pressure" blew.

    Just as long as were not talking about Mo coaching the canes again, I have no problem with him.

    This train of thought represents much of what I reject in a fan of the Carolina Hurricanes.

    I like how "he had a fluke run with Lavi's team", ignoring the fact that "Lavi's team" was headed for an 11th place finish when he took over.

    also, the first "fluke run" was in 2002, DAMN SURE NOT in 2003.

    I actually don't remember this. Maybe it was on the other side of the arena or something.

    Section 328 yelling "MO! MUST! GO!" in place of "NO! NO! NO!" in "I Wanna Rock"... love those guys. :laugh:
