As this day progresses, I find myself feeling increasingly melancholy. Doubt I'm alone.

my wife and I decided we're going with Carolina as our surrogate team this year. Rod the bod seems like a great guy and it would be so funny to see Andersen win a cup. Thats helping take the sting out of this year a bit.

I'm targeting whoever is playing Calgary, Edmonton, or Toronto.

 

If Calgary plays Edmonton in the second round I'm in trouble, but who is kidding who? No one watches hockey by mid May.

If all 3 could go down in the 1st round I'd be giddy.

Season finale. Obviously that ugly start to the year under Green cost us and was a very tall mountain to climb. Still plenty to play for though. Bruce pulling for his 600th NHL win, JT two pts away from hitting 100, Petey 2 pts away from 70 and Huggy Bear 3 pts away from 70 and a apple away from 60. Let’s cheer for them to hit these numbers as well as a win tonight! GCG!

I think this was a really good lesson for this core, they all seem to finally get it and are playing for each other and their coach, they all really seem to be having great chemistry, I certainly can sense it through the Boeser, Petey, Podz, Bruce interviews, heck Miller was gushing about the team and Van and yes it can be show but the mood is the best 2011 and frankly, we just saw the best regular season hockey/50 game stretch from our team since 2013.

 

Rumour is Boeser and Boudreau will be resigned and that Canucks know they need better bottom 6 depth and right side d man.

I bet Pearson is moved and we see 1-2 more signifiant d men brought in.Getting someone (not easy at all) to take on a top pair role with hughes would take a massive load off Myers and OEL and maybe we get even more from them with reduced load. There will be a market for a 2md/3rd pick for Myers but then we have to replace him and tbh, he is better then guys like Marino and Montour, but those guys would look good as a 2RHD on our team.

I'm with you Jim.

I loved Hartford Whalers back in the day so I have a soft spot for Carolina. 

 

Also agree with you on Rod. He was just my kind of player, one of the best utility guys to ever lace them up.You know I like guys that can play in lots of situations and have leadership. Turned into a great coach. Oh, and he's from Van Isl!

yup liked the Whalers too. 

 

Plus I want to see Leaf fans cry when Andersen lifts the cup.

My favourite player when I was a kid was Geoff Sanderson (can’t even remember why lol) long time Whaler. Loved the jerseys. I wonder with all the retro jerseys making a come back if Carolina would pay tribute to those days? I’d buy that jersey in a heart beat.
