  1. Hey. That's Travis Swift to you, pal.
  2. Didn't he do that with the current QB?
  3. Is having to listen to Romo and Nance jerk each other off over Mahomes and the Chiefs considered the same as watching porn?
  4. When we called it quits with Carolina several years ago, I became a football fan in the sense that I just watch games I think will be a good match-up. It's much more fun to watch without an emotional or financial investment. It's much more fun to watch not caring who wins or loses.
  5. https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/2788178/report-hurricanes-deangelo-on-trade-block It appears Tony DeAngelo's second stint in Raleigh could be short-lived. The Carolina Hurricanes have been shopping the 28-year-old defenseman for over a month, The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun reports. DeAngelo signed a one-year, $1.675-million deal with the Hurricanes as a free agent in the summer. He enjoyed a career year with Carolina in 2021-22, racking up 51 points in 64 games, but was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers the following summer. The Flyers bought out the final year of his contract after a poor campaign, making him a free agent. The 2023-24 season hasn't been kind to DeAngelo. He's failed to carve out a consistent role on Carolina's deep blue line, as he's averaging a career-low 16:11 per contest and has frequently been a healthy scratch. DeAngelo's tallied one goal and six assists in 16 games. The Hurricanes have five defensemen carrying a $4-million cap hit or greater, leaving only one spot up for grabs most nights. DeAngelo has proven to be a defensive liability, while his main competition for the No. 6 defenseman role, Jalen Chatfield, has been solid. Here's a look at their on-ice five-on-five numbers this season, per Natural Stat Trick. Player Goals for Goals against xGF% DeAngelo 4 13 46.5 Chatfield 12 12 56.5 The Tampa Bay Lightning drafted DeAngelo in the first round in 2014. He's tallied 206 points in 356 career games between the Arizona Coyotes, New York Rangers, Hurricanes, and Flyers.
  6. Standings as of December 8: Anybodyhome- 2 Harbingers- 2 WelshPanther- 1 MillionDollarCam- 1
  7. You gotta be kidding. 3 losses to start a road trip.
  8. Flames 3 PPs, 2 of those 3 zero shots on goal.
  9. Harbinger and Anybodyhome had Noesen. BY9, what's up? You had Svech, Bunting and Noesen.
  10. It was an issue, just not the top priority as some thought it was. Nonetheless, it was addressed with an every-night guy in Bunting and a role-player in Lemieux. Orlov was added, although that is still a head-scratcher when everyone knew TDA was coming back. I don't care how tough and gritty a team is. If that team is winning consistently, they're going to take some hits along the way. Toughness and grit don't win games, goal scoring does. And that's the part nobody addressed.
  11. The Canes got curb-stomped by a 9-12 team last night. I have no confidence they can beat a 10-12 team with a better D than Edmonton. That being said, as others have pointed out, the Canes are streaky and there's no better time than now. As for everything else that's not happening with this team- far as I'm concerned it's the best team in the NHL on paper. Problem is, the game is not played on paper. Dundon and Waddell can start tearing this whole thing down for a retool tomorrow and I'd be okay with it. My trade bait list: Necas, Drury, Martinook (UFA). Pesce, DeAngelo. Both Raanta and Kochetkov. I don't see Orlov going anywhere with a $7.5M salary for the next 2 years, otherwise, I'd add him to the list as well. The first 4 guys on that list could bring in some serious talent.
