Hey there Techwife ... I kept trying to stir up the hockey fans here until mid-October, then gave up as I was getting so few responses, and haven't been checking in lately. See ...
Hey Hockey Girls!!! What's Happening???
Yes, this is a horrendous year for the 'Canes, but I can't really complain when I look at the history of many other teams. The team's had a lot of success in our short history here in Carolina, going to two Stanley Cup finals, winning one ... going to the ECF last year, e.g. So I have to accept the fact that this is a re-building period, that you can only do so much when most of your star players go down with serious injuries and are out weeks/months at a time. Losing Staal, Cam Ward and Erik Cole for so long devastated us ... plus all the other injuries. One thing ... I will never take winning for granted again!
But we'll come back next year ...
And everybody will stop pitying us and HATE us again!
I was at the game where Ovechkin almost took out his own knee while trying to take out Gleason's! Served him right! One of these days, someone's going to make him pay big-time, I do believe!
Techie, I know you're excited about the Sabres' record this year. I've been thinking about you, kid!
