Few days between games so I thought I would give everyone the run down

Philedelphia has 92 points, 7 Games left, 3 at home, 4 +.500 teams

Carolina has 91 points, 5 games left, 4 at home all against +.500 teams

Pittsburgh has 90 pts, 6 games left,2 at home, 4 +.500 teams

NY Rangers has 89 pts, 5games left,2 at home, all against +.500 teams

Montreal has 86 points, 7 games left, 3 at home, 5 against +.500 teams

Our magic point number right now is 97... That is the max points that Florida can get with there games remaining. They play versus Ottawa tonite.

The hottest teams in this playoff race is the Canes And the Pitt Pens. Have a Record of 7-1-2 over last 10.

We are in good shape but can not let up know. There are 10 points on the table, i Would like to see us get 7 of them and put pressure on Philly for opening round home ice.

Coming down to the wire indeed. Canes are playing great hockey and just need to keep the pressure on.

This Saturday night's home game against the Pens will be HUGE. If both teams continue their play, that game will be playoff intensity and magnitude.

GO CANES!!!!!

Talked to Tripp Tracy about Pens game the other day. That could be the one where Matt Cullen gets back into the lineup. If we are going to make a run Cullen is one of the most important parts of the team because of what he can do on the powerplay. Im not sure the we can pass Philly but I think we can stick in the 5 spot and I dont see us dropping any further than the 6 spot. Watched some stuff on the NHL network today and they all agreed that Carolina is a team that could make a run to the finals this year. No team wants get the first round match up with us now. I hope that we get the Caps in the first round, we have there number and could take them out in 5.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
