    Awesome for the team and Pep. Hopefully they send Burns to visit his office soon for tips. Tepper continues to make great moves for our team.

    A benefit of sweeping the Islanders is that we got to rest some and get a few bodies back from injury. It's great having Svechikov and Martinook back. Ferland and Mrazek are also both saying that they will be ready for Game 1. For those that don't follow hockey closely or are new to the game here's why that's important: Andrei Svechnikov is our star rookie we picked #2 last year. He has a special skillset that we lack on the team. He's a very good shooter, skater, passer, and he's gotten much better defensively over the course of this year. He can make plays that most can't and he's looking to score on a team with a lot of passers. He's going to be a star soon. Jordan Martinook is usually a fourth line energy guy but did spend some time on the third line for a bit. He tends to stick up for Andrei on the ice and Jordan, Andrei, and Dougie Hamilton (a defenseman on our team) are pretty close. It also means the AHL player filling his spot can go back to Charlotte. Micheal Ferland is a guy we picked up this year in the Calgary trade along with Dougie Hamilton. He plays a physical game and in the past has laid some big hits to go along with the points he scored. The second half of the season he's been hurt quite frequently and we have no idea what the injury is and his production has stalled as a result. If he can go back to playing the way he was at the beginning of the season he would be a huge asset to the team in this series as a deterrent to Marshand of Boston who likes to take cheap shots at opponents. Petr Mrazek is currently our #1 goalie we acquired this year as a free agent. Since January he's had an outstanding record. He's been on the front page of NHL.com several times for some of the saves that he's made this year. You can see that the team has confidence that they can win any game that he or Curtis McElhinney (our other outstanding goalie) starts. All three levels in the Hurricanes organization are doing really well. It's incredible to think that the Everblades (ECHL), Checkers (AHL), and Hurricanes (NHL) could sweep every major championship in North American professional hockey this year.

    Remember in 2015 when we were projected to win 6 games and finish last in the Division and then went 15-1?

    The guy is not wrong. Our later round picks have been underwhelming for a long time. I truly think that is a result of having RR friends coaching positions instead of quality coaches who can actually develop people. I think Tepper saw that as well. I think he evaluated every part of the team and the progress they are making like any business. I am hopeful that can change with the new experienced coaches we have added. Especially Fewell. I am really hoping he can make something out of Gualden, Corn, Doss, And Seymour. We don’t need Probowlers out of the later rounds, but we do need guys who can develop into serviceable depth when called upon.

    Man, I just love Julius’ story. This will be a great opportunity for both he and the panthers, and I’m glad he’s sticking around the team

    I predict 11.6 wins and a greater than 90% chance of making the playoffs. I have the same amount of credibility as those projections.

    With the way the Panthers looked at the end of the season I wouldn't be surprised if they only won 4 games. I also wouldn't be surprised if they won 12 and made a Superbowl run. Honestly, no idea what to expect out of the team this season.

    This just popped up on a Charlotte news station. Haven’t seen this before. Looks great (if it ends up in SC). Sorry for having to take a photo of the TV. Couldn’t find it anywhere online.

    Its better to tell the guys you drafted "you were the guy we always wanted", "we had a first round grade on you", and build up their confidence then let them see "man, they didn't really want me. I was just leftovers".

    As a fan, I'd love to know myself but what is to be gained from the team's perspective by having it publicly revealed?

    I think it shows just how bad a judge of character Republican voters are too. You gotta be real gullible to think "this dude knows what he's doing" back in 2016. Google existed back then. Everyone in NYC knew he was a shitty businessman and a clown who stiffs people.

    because he is one of the biggest losers of all time. Likely is the greatest in terms of losing money and when the sane world cut him off. He went abroad and took dirty money to bail him out and keep his fake con going. Same dude is the one who doesn’t even understand trade. Thinks tarrifs means the Chinese are giving him money. Ignores literally all experts and informed folks on every topic known to man

    Yeah, no. Imagine you’re considering 6 different girls to date. So you make a pros cons list to rank them. Your top two choices get taken before you can make your move. Then you start dating one and show them where they landed on the list...

    and he's not wrong. He makes a good point of our recent troubles getting anything after our first 2 rounds. We've got to do better there. The Carolina Panthers are at a bit of a crossroads. They didn’t fire Ron Rivera and they didn’t ease out Marty Hurney, their once-and-present GM, and the building blocks of the franchise (Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey, roughly 3,000 pounds of defensive tackle) are still here. Yet this is not a team that can stand pat, and they were all too aware of that. The Panthers, in case you missed out on their delightful 2018 season, started the year 6-2 and looked like they’d seriously challenge the Saints for the divisional crown. From there, they lost seven of their final eight games, including a second loss to the also struggling Falcons, and finished the year 7-9 and reeling. They went into free agency and snagged the market’s top center in Matt Paradis, added some veteran pass rushing help in the form of Bruce Irvin, locked up some of their better free agents, and perhaps most importantly fired Matt Kalil into the sun. Going into the draft, they had the look of an improved team, albeit perhaps only a slightly improved one. The draft class, to be truly successful, would need to patch over other holes and add at least a couple of impact starters, plus depth to help down the line. Did they accomplish that? https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2019/5/2/18523830/nfc-south-draft-grades-breaking-down-the-panthers-who-we-do-not-like

    I mean this is completely fair. We've never been a consistent franchise so 7-8 wins is probably going to be normal every year for us until we start having some sustained success. No reason really to take it as an insult or anything.

    i'd about rather cut my dick off than vote for biden. but trump's base will like it if he espouses his thoughts about segregation again. and i'm getting sick of fellow libs saying we have to support him to beat trump. no, no i don't because i don't. this isn't football. this is about the future of the human race and the planet and it'll just be more of the same bs with him. ugh!

    Most talking heads had us winning 6-8 games last year. Of course we could have won more than 7 if Cam didn’t lose his arm. I don’t think ESPN ever has us being more than .500 which is fine with me, they’re a dumpster fire.

    He looked awful at the Combine, but then again Combine drills aren't football games. Orlando Brown had quote possibly the worst Combine performance of all time last year and proved to be a serviceable NFL OT as a rookie. Little didn't look anywhere near as bad as Brown did at the Combine.

    Walls was also a 4x All Pro (as a Panther) and Gross was also an All Pro. I just think many are young to appreciate some of the players who did most of their work in previous decades.

    Most of the military tactics in this show have been bad. Scouting and recon must be against the rules. Tywin Lannister couldn't tell the difference between two thousand and twenty thousand men. Stannis Baratheon, Jaime Lannister, and Ramsay Bolton allowed large armies to approach them without any warning. But then if I was watching a show for military tactics, I would watch band of brothers.
