Also the Canes have signed Ron Hainsey since then.

You do realize Pitkanen is out for the season right? It was announced weeks ago.
@firefox91 Just so you know his teammates and coaches have been calling him "Suttsy" since Juniors, and his cousins are called the same thing, as I'm sure his dad and uncles probably were. I hardly made it up. You feel free to come up with any nickname you like.

I will never call him Suttertron. Acceptable nicknames include Suttsy, Sutts, BSutts.
If the Devils win I might throw myself off a cliff.

I knew you'd be happy about this Vickie! I don't know about Pete-Dawg. I don't think he's going anywhere though.

I actually debated about Mike Smith, I really like his toughness, but he is too emotional - and not in a good way. The "who on the Rangers would I NOT like to see playing for the Canes?" was more in a joking way I'm sure you know. If I brought all of them I might as well just be a Rangers fan.
I can't help my Giroux feelings. I'd like to think I'm woman enough to admit when I'm wrong, and when someone has the obvious skill that he does. He's thankfully (apart from that lone incident in his last game, which I think was more frustration than anything) not a dirty player. He hits, but he hits clean 99% of the time. As I just told a Philly blog writer, I wouldn't care if he drank all the beer in Raleigh if he was playing for the Canes (just not during the season!)

@Esbee92 Shows how much I pay attention to Nickelback, which is not at all! I don't even know that song.

But it's physically impossible for me NOT to make a Nickelback joke! Actually (fingers crossed) I don't think I've ever heard that terrible excuse for music in the PNC. But Don Sill will sometimes take requests via Twitter. He played Paramore's "Monster" from the Transformers 3 soundtrack for me at a game. I could do without anything related to the Black Eyed Peas.
Thank you Sally. I will never forget about Chad LaRose ever again, I promise.

@Esbee92 I was just thinking about this same thing. The last time Joey was seen was at the All Star Game in Ottawa. Did he party too hard with Pat Kane? Is he grounded for bad behavior? The Hawks are in the PLAYOFFS! Joey should be in heaven right now. I'm very worried.

This is a fabulous blog and your point is extremely valid and well taken. It's hard to constantly fight these offensive terms, treatment and double standards. I wonder how many women this eventually drives away from enjoying sports. While most males that I attend games with tend to enjoy it in a different way, meaning serious analysis of strategy, stats etc, it doesn't mean 1. that I don't care about those things too or 2. that I'm not a serious fan because I tend to enjoy the game in a different way (which usually means a lot of cheering and yelling and freaking out). I guess I tend to get a bit more emotional about the game, which is not to say that men don't, but without trying to stereotype, I've observed it to be a tendency women have more often. Do I have to stop calling Brandon Sutter "Sutter Butter" now? Does that make me a so-called "Puck Bunny" because I give a player a "cute" nickname? Does it make me a "Puck Bunny" because I painted player numbers and logos on my fingernails? No it absolutely does not. It makes me a FAN and a SUPPORTER of the team. And yes we are wacky!
