I am a regular poster/stalker on a few hockey message boards and have been a Canes fan since I was a kid. The Canes are largely forgotten about and irrelevant to many hockey fans it seems. I guess a decade without a playoff appearance will do that, and the non-traditional hockey market doesn't help. Plus we haven't had a really sexy player in that time frame. Guys like Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner had loads of potential and came out of the gate looking like they'd be future superstars, but they never really took that next step to become elite players.I hate to turn this into hockey talk thread because it clearly says Columbus Blue Jackets, but whatever. What are ya'lls thoughts / knowledge of the Canes? What do you hear about them up in Ohio?
I'm in Section 330. I wasn't able to buy through the Hurricanes Ticketmaster page since they require a billing address in NC, SC, or VA. So I had to go through SeatGeek. $200 after all the fees for one ticket.Just bought 2 as well for game 4. section 327. $135/each. Flipping absurd. STMs must be reselling at a HUGE price.
Went to the last CBJ/Boston game. Was rough.Woke up and took a look at the Las Vegas-San Jose box score. My God. It was like a Game 7 on cocaine. Vegas, who had a 3-1 series lead at one point, had a 3-0 lead in the third period. San Jose scored four unanswered in the span of four minutes but Vegas tied the game with only 0:47 left. The Sharks ended up winning with a little under two minutes to go in OT.
In other news, Boston beat Toronto in their Game 7 match-up yesterday. The Blue Jackets will start their series with them tomorrow.
Likely losing Bobrovsky and Panarin but I think they will be able to keep Matt Duchene.I only follow hockey in a cursory fashion, but, as I understand, CBJ is going to lose a bunch of key pieces this offseasn?
That blows. Oh well.Likely losing Bobrovsky and Panarin but I think they will be able to keep Matt Duchene.
Panarin is looking for best player in the league money and a bigger market. Bob is also looking to get paid.
We have a lot of young talent waiting in the wings - just a matter of coaching them up to their potential but the loss of Panarin will definitely be felt. Gotta keep developing guys like Dubois, Bjorkstand, Anderson and hoping our vets can step it up next year to make a push.That blows. Oh well.
Rooting for the Canes. Living in NC for the past year, nobody is really talking about them.
