This team looks like it's been eating doritos all off season or the Canadian/Russian/Finnish/Slovakian equal there of. They can't handle the puck, and they're their not physical at the point of attack. But at least after the first period we've won some faceoffs and been playing even hockey. Anywho, they need to get their poo together quick.

This reminds me of the Panthers vs Eagles game in 2009 when Delhomme shits the bed and reality comes down on everyone that it is going to be a long year. Ward has regressed over the years and we are going to be screwed when his ability goes down to zero. We have no heir apparent to Ward. We didn't make enough moves to improve in the offseason and this is the end result.

Carolina pro sports teams blow...

Canes

Panthers

Bobcats

All f*cking suck, this is embarrassing .

There must be something in the water here to make all the owners lay back and not give a poo about how their teams are performing. They're all about keeping families and friends together than winning.

I've kind of thought that Ward has been recently overrated as well. He helped bring us the Cup so that bought him some "ok he can have a few shitty years" acceptance from the fans. But it's time to find a consistent goal tender. Also if you breathe on our players hard enough they lose the puck out of the offensive zone.

Not only that, Florida just looked much bigger physically. Maybe the Canes should take the Gettlemen approach....bigger is better.

Dan Ellis is 32 years old. He should not be on the team. We should have a young backup that is up and coming that can eventually take over the starting spot within a year or 2 at most. The team is too confident in Ward when his abilities are obviously diminishing.

I do agree, but also II don't really think the rest of the team helped him out too much. They didn't take away angles properly, and we had zero puck possession. Alex Kovalev could have started a business behind our net. I saw our players skating into eachother....just really unorganized. I really wish we would have hung on to Laviolette.

Who was the young guy we had behind Ward not so long ago? Seemed a little promising and I sensed a controversy brewing there for a minute... I can't remember his name.

Anyway, yeah, even in my limited watching of us, the biggest thing that stood out to me was the lack of puck handling and poor passing. Just horrible. I didn't see any teams that looked that bad in those areas anywhere else yesterday. Also, really didn't see much from the Staals at all. I really hope we get it together and at least make the playoffs.

I still think we'll be alright. I think the lockout may have effected us more then other teams considering we have such an influx of new players. I know it's a short year, but they still need a couple of games to develop some chemistry and get in game shape. I think we're going to perform better the next game.

I don't even want it to be #Time anymore if we are just going to play like that.
