Faulk named to All Rookie Team

3 posts in this topic

Faulk was one of 2 defenseman named to the NHL all rookie team. This is the second year in a row the Canes have had a rookie being honored with Skinner being last year.

We could have a repeat next year with D's Murphy and Dumoulin and possibly C Rask.

Just hoping we can sign Parise and not have to trade away a bunch of young talent and the 8th pick for someone like Nash or Ryan. The team has never had young talent of this caliber since moving to Carolina. A+ drafting past few years.

Does anyone know who else made the team?

I can seem to find it...

I would think Nugent-Hopkins, Landeskog, and Henrique made the team. I don't know who else...

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
