    So, lets say you started watching hockey when the Icecaps were here, 1991-1998, all the way up to now with the Hurricanes. That's a total of 21 years. Does that qualify a person from N.C. to know hockey ? Coming from your statements, it's probably longer than you are old.

    ....seriously doubt it....kid....seems you need a real lesson

  • tired2 Jan 8, 2013

    you small-minded people......I was referring to "Carolina" because that is where we are....there are newby fans in every city that fit this same description "but don't act like you know the game or the players"....a new fan to hockey certainly can become knowledgeable....did not say that...in fact that is how the sport grows....many new fans in Carolina are knowledgeable about the game...but because you know the rules does not mean you know the strategy and intricacies (hope the word is no too hard for you)of the game...

    I understand those that want to boycott because they are mad, I really do, but just remember you boycott too long you take a chance of this team leaving! The NHL wants another team in Ontario, Quebec just built a rink and 2 cities in the US are building arenas big enough for the NHL. For whatever reason the league continues to sink money into Phoenix and unless they expand, that means any team that does not draw for a long period of time could be moved. Just something to keep in the back of your mind when you decide to boycott.

    spoken by someone who has never skated or played the game for a second, because if you did you would know how false that statement is!

    Half of the people that live here are transplants like myself and we know hockey. However, one of my best friends never saw a puck drop until the Canes came. Now he knows the game better than most. Your statement was ignorant.

  • pbourey Jan 8, 2013

    Will still resent what took place but I love the sport way too much to not watch so I am looking forward to the return.

  • shanemane1986 Jan 8, 2013

    tired2... Just because we live here, doesn't mean we don't know anything about hockey... I'm from Hawaii and I bet I could lay you out on the ice, deke your skates off and deny you like Mr. Quick! And I'm talking about actually on the ice, not on your xbox ;-) You don't have to be from the North or Canada to know something about hockey, kid..

    Gee, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to learn the game of hockey. What's their to know that anybody who has ever watched sports can't learn by going to one game ? What off-sides, or icing ? The penalties ? What are you referring too ?

    You said..."don't act like you know the game or the players". Nowhere did I see that mentioned by anyone and you decided to insinuate that Carolina fans know nothing about the sport with your snide comment: "now we get to listen to all those in Carolina who think they know hockey". Sorry, but you make an ignorant comment like that, you're going to catch some slack. There are fans in ALL sports EVERYWHERE that act like they "have a clue" and are clueless. You come off as pompous and arrogant by saying that some of us don't know hockey based on our region. That is a generalization and therefore an ignorant comment. And you have no problem having us as fans? Really? I had no idea that there was a prerequisite in order to be a fan, or we had to have your blessing, but thanks for your permission in "having us as fans".

    What a waste of time watching a bunch of millionaires skate around.

  • -f Jan 7, 2013

    Who really cares about hockey. They do not work hard enough to earn even 1/1000th of what they get paid to skate around. All professional sports are a huge time sink for men. Why do you really care to watch a bunch of people get over paid to skate around in circles????? Study something interesting like day trading and make lots of money instead of idolizing a bunch of clowns.

    Has nothing to do with BB in NC and who invented it.,....there are many knowledgeable hockey fans here,,,,,problem is there are just as many who don't have a clue who think they know - and the problem is they talk like they know....ignorance...your replies kornfan2448

    I know that these guys are ready to play this game. Finally... glad they are back.

    I know Ovechkin is ready to come back. Read an interview where he commented he was ready to come back to the NHL. He was talking about how much of a different game it was playing on NHL rinks compared to the KHL ( olympic size rinks ) in terms of speed, and checking. He commented on how much more exciting the NHL was because of that. He also said the fans in the NHL were louder and more into the game. He may not see that....when he gets back for awhile.

  • Uhavenoclu Jan 7, 2013

    With a new collective bargaining agreement tentatively reached, and training camp still a few days away, Canes players continued to hold their own workouts. The difference now is that they have been assured a season – something that was not so certain just a few days ago.

    Aseason????????????????????????????? GET REAL,WHY EVEN PLAY?,DON'T GET YOUR KNICKERS IN A TWIST,IT WILL BE LIKE THE NBA LAST YEAR WHEN THEIR SEASON LASTED A FEW MONTHS.....BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    I heard on WRAL's 6 PM news that Semin, along with three other Canes players who played in Europe are on their way back to the US. I imagine all the players that left to play in Europe (like Ovechin from the Caps) had an agreement in place to return to their teams if/when the League and NHLPA came to an agreement.

    Totally agree, korn. I guess we can't say anything about basketball either, because didn't Dr. Naismith invent the game in a state not named North Carolina? Sheesh!

    What an ignorant comment! Golf didn't originate here, so I guess we can't act like we know that sport either, eh? Or how about football? First organized baseball game was known to be played in New Jersey, guess we don't know baseball either? And basketball? Please inform us all knowing one located in Cary.

  • dehowell2 Jan 7, 2013

    This is about as exciting as watching grass grow. I was happy with the stupid strike and now the prima-donnas got their way.

  • PanthersFan45 Jan 7, 2013

    I wonder if Alex Semin is in town .... I understand he went off to Russia to play when the lockout started. If he plays to his potential he could be a valuable asset to the Canes this year. JR did a magnificent job of keepting the core players in place and making great aquisitions in the off-season, now maybe we can finally see them in action.

  • tired2 Jan 7, 2013

    yahoo....now we get to listen to all those in Carolina who think they know hockey....no problem having you as fans....but don't act like you know the game or the players

  • evenflow2005 Jan 7, 2013

    Just remember Hurricane fans, this lock-out was caused by the one and only Gary Bettman to reduce the players guaranteed 57% of hockey revenues, plus other changes that are on players contracts. The players were just fighting for there league contract rights that the owners originally agreed to. Even though it's all greed over millions, the owners got there way. Regardless,I think most of the players just want to get back on the ice playing hockey. Personally, even though I've lost my interest since the season is half over, I will watch it on t.v. and will be there next year.

  • StunGunn Jan 7, 2013

    College basketball is my favorite sport, but I'm glad hockey is back. I've been looking forward to seeing two Staals playing for the Canes. On another note, I bet there's a lot of hockey wives out there who are glad to get their husbands out of the house!

  • kornfan2448 Jan 7, 2013

    The only thing keeping me slightly interested is the fact I love watching hockey and the off season acquisitions that the Canes made. That being said, I will be watching from home and saving my money for other things.
