Alright guys, I won't be here with you tonight because I made the trip down from college to come back home so I could go to the game tonight.

Because there is not much info out yet, this game day thread is going to be a little makeshift.

Any who, tonight is an important one. The SED lead is riding on this game and once again the Canes will be missing a lot of bodies. Skinner, Brent, and McBain are definitely no goes and as far as I know, so are Pitkanen and Gleason. However, Skinner did skate this morning in a yellow (non-contact) jersey.

The lineups have not been announced but a few people have leaked info that Andreas Nodl will be the healthy extra tonight (not sure why, as he has been playing great so far) and Jeremy Welsh will be centering the fourth line.

The Canes will roll with Dan Ellis in net tonight (thank God) and his counterpart will be Mathieu Garon who happens to be 1-3 on this young season (his only win on the season comes against the Canes).

In other news, the Lightning will be without Ryan Malone tonight as they have sent him to IR.

With that said... GO CANES

    • LOL. Well neither do you man- you're haphazardly speculating at best. I have vastly more evidence that Pryor would not be the starter and Mike Adams would First off: Mike Adams is better.  Second: Clearly the Panthers wanted Adams, probably going to start the guy they wanted.  Third: Mike Adams is a veteran presence just like the last successful guy to start at SS was for us: Harper: who would still be here if he had any gas left in the tank. The front office and coaches loved that veteran leadership he provided. Harper was starting games he had no business too- because our coaches loved how he positively helped our team. Guess who that replacement veteran leader is: Mike Adams.  Four: Calvin Pryor has been so bad the Jets are willing to give him up for "anything" and drafted safeties with their first and second round picks. That does not sound like the kind of guy that's out beating a consecutive Pro Bowl player.  Five: We already have a project safety on our team: Tre Boston   If you give up anything Pryor you have no idea how negotiations work in the first place. Jet's have no leverage here. Pryor is likely getting cut. 
    • blah blah blah our best WR who averages a 1,000 yards per season is a fat arse..trade him A.S.A.P.! Swole Bones is going be a future HOF TE...just give him one more year to develop? huddle logic :)
