We'll see, er, we'll hear, um, uh...any clairvoyants among us?
The non-traditional hockey deities have struck again, this time not broadcasting tonight's game from Raleigh via radio from either club. Should have figured such would be the result when even the 2006 Stanley Cup Champions will have fewer regular season television broadcasts this year than Florida. Only in hockey.
That all being said, we'll promote a link to On Frozen Pond's open thread/live chat close to the 7pm start time; this was a fun and effective method of communication during preseasons over the past couple of years when radio and television were not options. So do join us as GR narrates the action. Or something.
We'll of course be holding traditional LBC open threads during every game of the regular season; already finished the header graphic. Stoked, I be.
Onward: the Sun-Sentinel's HarveyX was kind enough to post up the Panthers' roster for this evening's match against the Hurricanes, which reads as follows:
Forwards: Tyler Arnason, Steve Bernier, Evgeni Dadonov, Mike Duco, Michael Grabner, Triston Grant, Quinton Howden, Shawn Matthias, Rostislav Olesz, Michal Repik, Michael Santorelli, Scott Timmins
Defense: Joe Callahan, Keaton Ellerby, Jason Garrison, Erik Gudbranson, Nathan Paetsch, Mike Weaver
Goal: Scott Clemmensen, Jacob Markstrom
Evidently, coach Peter DeBoer and friend/rival Paul Maurice agreed to go with youth on at least this night, so Carolina's lineup should reflect the above philosophy. Also looks increasingly likely that Hurricanes' first round selection ('10) Jeff Skinner will be signed and in uniform as well.
Teh floor is open...
