Game Thread: Bruins @ Carolina Whalercanes – February 26: First Period

Iron Man Doug Jarvis welcomes you to… The Insurance Capital of the World  uh, Raleigh.

The Bruins head into Carolina for what could very well be a game of lasts: Eric Staal’s last game as a Hurricane, and Loui Eriksson’s last as a Bruin. Both will be unrestricted free agents in July, and the trade deadline is this coming Monday.

The Canes, who are on the second half of a back-to-back, have been mediocre (5-4-1) in their last ten outings. The Bruins, unfortunately, haven’t been much better (6-4-0), but are a strong road team (20-10) for some reason. Tuukka has won two in a row and is going for his third against Cam Ward. I’m glad the Flying Finnish King is in net, because the Monster was abysmal last time he played.

For Carolina, the following men will not be dressing (ooh la la!):
Andrej Nestrasil (lower body), Justin Faulk (lower body) and Jay McClement (upper body).

(Notice the imposter Rask. Pay no mind to the misspelling of “Hanifin”.)

The Loui Eriksson situation remains a mystery.

A quick note to the opposition:

RED ROVER, RED ROVER, SEND LILES RIGHT OVER!

Doug Jarvis would rather be in Hartford, what about you? And more importantly, what’s on tap?

If you run your cursor over the comment, it goes white. Also, sometimes when you leave the page, new comments don’t show up yellow.

Is Dennis Seidenberg the only former Whalercane on the Bruins?

I think so. Bartkowski is cooling his heels in western Canada nowadays.

Nvm – Bart was a Panther, not a ‘cane

That was weird. I know that if you close the page, it requires a re-logging in. At least, that’s what happens to me.

yes Seids is the only former Cane,

Do you know the only former “whaler” still considered to be in the league? since he hasn’t signed his retirement papers yet

It was a total guess only because you said something about not signing his retirement papers yet. That would have been a great Jeopardy question.

Him: Yes.
Me: Oh, what is it?
Him: A picture of David Pastrnak.
Me: Are we going to frame it and bow down to it every day?
Him: Close.

I said yesterday Bruins increased term of their offer. Can now confirm they're at 4 years. Eriksson wants longer.

Sorry.

I will not rub it in by taking bets on what time it goes down.

I’m not betting on it, but I have a feeling it’ll be down to the wire…

I just saw that and I don’t think him staying here looks all that good now, though I do wonder *how* much longer does he want?

6 years I bet.

Miss Muse

That’s what I’m thinking too…

the german hammer
Admin

Yeah, I can understand that that is too much term. But, he could sign him to it, limit the NTC and trade him later.

Miss Muse

Miss Muse

I’d have liked to have seen something like 4 or 5 with the first two years having an NTC and then open the rest of the way.

the german hammer

A full NTC is nuts. No one would want to sign him with that.

Yeah that would be ridiculous.
