Canes media group piles on Kaberle

Wake me up before you go, go

This text from the bottom of the game-night preview on

Edmonton hasn't been to Raleigh in the regular season since a 1-all tie there Nov. 11, 2001. The Oilers lost three of four games at Carolina during the 2006 Cup finals, including a 3-1 defeat in Game 7 as Ward made 22 saves and Frantisek Kaberle scored the game-winning goal.

Kaberle has no goals and 10 assists in 46 games this season.

Was that last line even necessary? "..and he's still not beating his wife..." Strikes me as Canes media group's way of saying, "Kaberle....Kaberle....YOU SUCK!" Bad run this season for the Andrew Ridgeley of the NHL. Come on Frankie, pull the trigger on something, a hit, a wrister, a slapper, even a decent outlet pass. Last night our boy passed up in a shot in the first period from the top of the left circle, on the PP, with a clear shooting lane, and with a comrade parked in front of Gerbs. He went on to double-clutch on a slapper from the blueline later in the PP and it got blocked. See the Cialis and Ho narrative in the post below.

In other news, Casey Borer was sent back to Albany today. If Nic Wallin comes back tonight the Canes will finally have a fully staffed worst defensive corps in the NHL!!!

I hate to pile on, but Kaberle has shown me nothing. I know he's a sentimental favorite for some, but sentiment isn't winning us hockey games this year.

Hit the road, jack.

What's the deal with these guys? Wallin. Kaberle. Commodore. (Wesley and Hedican are just old)

What gives? Are they that bad?

Can't add to the attack, can't keep pucks out of the net-the lot of em. A bunch of rope-a-doping matadors.
