    Preseason

    Game 3 Canes 5- Caps 1 Team looking good so far. PP and PK look good for once. Svech looks as good as advertised. Zygov, Ferland, and Martinook are adding the physicality that we missed. Foegle is giving the effort that we need. The D is playing great. Mrazek looks good in goal although not seeing a lot of shots. However, there still is the problem at C. Seems that Aho just isn't cut out for C and needs to be placed at wing. That leaves: Necas, Stall, Martinook. Wallmark probably makes the team just based on the fact that he plays C. Still might see a trade for Duschene with Ottawa since Rask is out for a while. Projected Roster: TT-Stall-Aho Ferland-Necas-Svech Williams-Walmark-Zygov Foegle-Martinook-McGinn PDG Slavin-Hamilton DeHann-Faulk JVR-Pesce Cajovsky Mrazek Darling

    Preseason

    Game 1 last night at Tampa Bay: Tampa played with a majority of veterans and we played with a majority of AHLers and rookies. Canes looked fast and played hard in a 4-1 victory. Svechnikov was as advertised and had 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) Mrazek looked good in net and stopped all 9 shots that he faced. Game 2 tonight in Raleigh against Tampa Bay. Canes with a completely different starting lineup and Darling in net.

    Slow Cooker/Crockpot Recipes

    Tried this twice and its exceptional. It does take some effort but its worth it. Rick Bayless' Slow cooker Chicken Mole Ingredients: 1/2 cup pork lard or vegetable oil 6 medium dried mulato chiles, seeded and cut into roughly 1 inch pieces 3 medium dried ancho chiles, seeded and cut into roughly 1 inch pieces 5 medium dried pasilla chiles, seeded and cut into roughly 1 inch pieces 4 garlic cloves 3/4 cup whole almonds 1/2 cup raisins 15 ounce can diced fire roasted tomatoes 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, preferably Mexican canela 1/4 tsp ground black pepper 1/4 tsp ground fennel seeds 1/8 tsp cloves 1 ounce dark chocolate 1 slice firm white bread, darkly toasted 1/4 cup sugar Salt 2 quarts chicken stock 1/3 cup sesame seeds, toasted 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded Instructions Preparing the mole base. If your slow-cooker has a removable cooking crock that can be placed directly on the heat, measure in the lard or oil and set over medium heat. Otherwise, heat the lard or oil in a large (12 inch) non-stick skillet. When hot, add the chiles, garlic, almonds and raisins. Stir slowly and continually until the chiles are thoroughly toasted (the interior of each piece will become lighter in color) and the almonds have taken on a creamy color and toasty aroma—about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes (with their juice), spices, chocolate and bread. Cook until the tomato juices are reduced and quite thick, about 2 minutes. Add 2 cups water, the sugar and 1 ½ teaspoons salt. Stir to combine. When the liquid comes to a simmer, transfer the crock to the slow-cooker (or scrape the mixture into your slow-cooker). Cook on low for 6 hours. After 6 hours most of the liquid will be reduced to a glaze. The mixture can hold for several hours on the slow-cooker’s “warm” setting. Finish the mole. Scrape every bit of the mole base into a bowl, then scoop it into a blender jar. Add 2 cups of the chicken broth, cover and blend until as smooth as possible-for most household blenders this will take 4 to 5 minutes. Set a medium-mesh strainer over the slow-cooker’s cooking crock and press the mole base through it. Stir in 1 cup more chicken broth. Place back in slow-cooker and cook for an additional 2 hours. Taste and season with additional salt (usually about 1 teaspoon) and sugar (usually 2 to 3 tablespoons). Serve. In a medium bowl combine the shredded chicken and about 1 cup of the mole and combine well. Scoop into a warm corn tortillas, garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy without hesitation.

  5. Just uploaded this to youtube. Canadian broadcast of Game 7. Audio of the crowd noise is way better than NBCs broadcast. Plus its interesting to hear the Canadian commentary.

    NHL Draft 2018

    No problem. I don't but I do read the board often.

    NHL Draft 2018

    First day of Camp Necas looks for real. Guy has put on at least 15 lbs. had the most highlight plays. Is easily a top 9 forward. Svech looks the part. Great skater and passer. Seems to have a good presence with Necas. Also saw him joking with Fox. Bean looks like the real deal. Great skater and bigger than I expected. Should see some time in NHL next year. Fox looks like the real deal. Great skater. Not ready for this year but could play in the NHL next year. A tad small.

    NHL Draft 2018

    Looking at the roster now my guess on lineup is TT Aho Zykov skinner Stall. Svechnikov williams. Necas. Ferland martinook. Rask. McGinn possibles: PDG, Foegle, Kuokkanen, Roy, Saarela, Gauthier, Maenalanen Slavin. Pesce Fleury. Hamilton TVR. Faulk Possibilities: Bean, Fora, McKeown Darling. FA possibilities: Nedeljkovic So, the center position is a series weakness. Necas might not be ready for the NHL and/or playing center. Plus if anyone gets hurt, the next option is probably Roy, Saarela, or Kuokkanen. All have minimal NHL experience. We are going to have to address this through a trade or FA. I’m not as concerned about the wings. We have a lot of organizational depth here. As for the defense, if we keep TVR and Faulk we will probably be fine, but if we don’t keep one or both then we will have to address it. Goalies, we need a FA or get one through a trade. Looking forward to the developmental camp this week. Would like to see if Bean and Necas have developed since last year.

    NHL Draft 2018

    He did say that he's going to talk to an additional 2-3 teams. So, there is a chance however unlikely. We do need a 1-2 line center badly. Those don't come cheaply. If Tavares was at least partially interested, I'd throw 10 million at him. He would significantly upgrade the roster. ROR is another possibility and would be a lot cheaper. As for D-men, we can keep Hamilton, Peace, and Faulk on the right side. Left side isn't as easy. I doubt Bean will be ready for this year. So we have Slavin and Fleury. TVR is the wildcard. If he resigns and we keep Faulk then he may need to play on his off side. The goalie UFA market isn't awesome. I say throw a 3 year contract at the Blues backup, try to trade the big man or send him to Charlotte, sign Cam to a team friendly short term deal, and pray Ned is ready in a year or two to make the transition.

    NHL Draft 2018

    Hanifin and Lindholm trades to Calgary. Canes get Dougie Hamilton, Ferland, and Fox. Hamilton is a sure fire 1st pairing defenseman and is an upgrade over Hanifin. Ferland is a 20 goal scorer and reminds me of Ruutu. Fox is a defenseman prospect who is playing for Harvard next year but wasn’t likely to sign with Calgary. Hear he’s a good prospect and could play in the pros in year or two. Seems like an even trade. If Fox signs with us then it’s a win for us. Hate to see Both go but they didn’t want to sign their RFA contracts. Don’t see them improving much since they will again be in Peter’s system.

    First round has been pretty boring. Although I’ll take it as long as we have Svechnikov.
