  1. I know the pre-season means nothing, but can't help but get excited about the "new" Canes!!

  2. still got to get more discipline...far too many penalties

  3. Discipline is coming; did you notice last night that none of the players argued with the refs over calls, and went straight to the penalty box.

    Estephan had three great moves in the game just could not finish. However his goal came as a result of a neat passing play between him and Yakubowski. Love the speed of Olynek!

    Excellent effort by Hogue. Kootenay had a veteran lineup and McGill played Reinhart a lot. Derko, Maxwell, Topping, Laurencelle, Hackman, did not dress and of course Blomquist and Boes were out.

    Tonite's game will test the discipline.

    Dump n' Chase

  4. The shots were 2-0 in the third........??
