The 2009 playoffs were fuging crazy. Too bad we ran out of steam against the Flightless Birds.

3 years ago a friend of mine was dating a girl from Charlotte that was a big Devils fan. She watched numerous Canes and USA Olympic games with us (of course she was cheering for Canada). She was obnoxiousness rude and a just plain pain in the ass. I've hated the Devils every since.
