It is a source of great comfort and joy to find out that one of your most beloved musical idols is also partial to the most amazing sport on planet earth.
Please incorporate this into a song, John. Especially
"Prior to the red carpet walk of the 2011 NHL All-Star teams, there's the promenade of the mascots. I don't think there's much I can tell you about the promenade that isn't already covered by the phrase "promenade of the mascots,"
See you in DC, Richmond, and Chapel Hill.
To add a clarification to a point in the article regarding being picked last. The NHL organizers were going to have a group of players be picked last, so that no one got singled out, but the players overwhelmingly objected. They want to see their teammates squirm.
Late-breaking news Wednesday morning -- Canes forward Jeff Skinner was promoted from the rookies team to the All-Star roster and will play in Sunday afternoon's game. Canes defenseman Jamie McBain took Skinner's place on the rookies team and will compete in the SuperSkills competition on Saturday night. Everything's televised on Versus.
agreed - there's no way to 'outlaw' fighting in the game. if you do this, other ways to express frustration/aggression will develop - this could be more dangerous than a simple 60 second delay to pick up gloves and sticks.
I don't love the fighting, but it's a part of the lore of the game, and it does serve a purpose in the intimidation portion of the competition.
Claire even those of us who migrated to the Cape from Pittsburgh still know where our loyalties lie. Now the Penguins are out to get those nasty Red Wings. Go Penns!!! We all know where the good food comes from also.
Great article! Go Pens!!
great article! i cannot believe that you question your loyalties! once a pittsburgher, always a pittsburgher! from your favorite cousin!!
Ah yes, chipped ham. Fortunately I was home last week (SE OH), and my dad had some for us. Mmmmmm...
Kate, you stole my line....and it's awesome! So far the unity the Canes have shown as a collective unit has shown great results for the first two rounds. Here's hoping they can keep it rolling through to the Cup Finals!
"Carolina Hurricanes Hockey, go out and win tonight.
"Carolina Hurricanes Players, take that puck right down the ice.
"When you're playing the Bruins, you'd better bring the baked beans,
"'Cause Boston's going to gobble down the chowder.
"And all you Caniacs out there at the RBC,
"You'd better cheer a little louder!
"When those Bruins come to town, you'd better get all dressed up,
"As shiny as Ernest T. Bass,
"'Cause when the Hurricanes go dancing down the ice,
"They'll want to make a nifty pass!"
"Carolina Hurricanes Hockey, go out and win tonight."
[From the writer's 2006 song for the Stanley Cup Hurricanes, with an updated verse for playing the Boston Bruins.]
Hebruiser, I assume you're referring to the caption that appeared in our print edition, which was indeed erroneous.
However, the caption on this page online has been correct for a week, as noted above.
Thanks for reading, and for the observation about Pitkanen's technique.
ummm...just so you know. that's not cole crashing in behind. that's joni pitkanen. and he's actually in position for once...
Great article! I really enjoyed reading this.
Great in-depth preview of what to expect for the Canes this year, Kate! I nominate you as Hockey Ambassador in the Triangle!
