What will I tell my kid when she asks me where the Whalers of my youth are? I always assumed I would just tell her they moved to Carolina.


Her father's Whalers remained in Hartford. The 'Canes are HER Whalers, not her father's.


Yes. Hartford kept the Whalers history, kind of like the Creve did when the Old Browns became the Ravens. The Hurricanes are owned by the guy who used to own the Whalers. They also had a very similar roster to the Whale. They even had the Whale's old coach. But they were not the Whalers.


Do they play Brass Bonanza?


I do not believe so. I have not been to a Canes game since they moved down here so I can't completely confirm or deny this claim. My goal is to make it to a Canes game this season.

No Brass Bonanza, no Whalers.

The Red Sox play Brass Bonanza sometimes. I'm grateful for that.

I've seen some chuckleheads ripping the 'Canes for this signing since he's not a $7m player, but I think it's a good signing. WGAF about the money on a one-year deal? Between the Staals, Skinner, and Jizz, you should have two very good lines.

You know those preening n-words in the NBA with all the talent in the world, but never live up to expectations because they're lazy, disinterested, w.e? Hockey has preening Russkies instead, and Semin is the poster child. But you never know what a guy like this will do. Could score 100 points, could be 40.

What Clayton said, HOWEVAH: The past season was the first time Jizz actually attempted to play D and was actually really good on D, blocking shots, etc. He wanted to leave DC because they hadn't been playing him on things like the PK but the fucker played like the Euro pussy bitch Don Cherry rails against for years which combined with his declining O numbers was the worst, then he finally starts caring on D.... soooo.... it's a good signing, only a one year deal, Caniacs are looking prettay prettay friskay

So apparently the Canes have a player named Tlusty. That means "fat" in Czech. TMYK.

Hey hockey fans! The new Hurricanes GM is...

Ron Francis

The only way they could troll our pal Frank any more is if they'd introduced him to Brass Bonanza.
