    It looks like we might have to keep him a round just a little longer now.

    Agreed. Cam at times is outstanding ("okay" was probably unfair), but the inconsistency you pointed out is a killer. When his head is not in the game he is NOT an NHL calibre goalie IMHO. Which is too bad. I like Cam, a lot. It's not my habit to come on a BBS and torch a guy, primarily because my lack of hockey knowledge will get me in trouble in a hurry.

    Canes fans as a rule have been very supportive of this franchise, grateful for its presence in the Triangle. I think we have excellent ownership. Rarely have a I heard fans gripe about the team's record over the last few years; the conduct of Canes fans has been exemplary. Maybe it's because many of us remember a time when NC had no professional sports franchise. But I think we're quickly reaching the point at which we're justified in standing up and saying, "You know, we deserve a better standard of play then what we're getting." It's not us against them, it's just us guys, and one half of the team isn't living up to their end of the bargain.

    I don't think he needs to go but he certainly should be benched in favor of Khudobin for the time being...notice how K. was able to finish? Ward has just not been a good 60-minute goalie, at least since 2009. You're so right about Maniscalco being an apologist...I got on their show this morning and laid it right out. Being great or even spectacular for two periods is just not enough...I know part of it's the defense in front of him but the pattern of mediocrity has been established for a long time. You are absolutely right in that this team is going to go right back behind the 8-ball for the season if we don't get a different standard of play in net, not soon but NOW.

    It's time to disabuse ourselves of the notion that Cam Ward is anything better than an average to below average NHL goalie. He is a Conn Smythe winner due to fortunate timing, coming on in relief against Montreal during the team's run to the Cup in 2006 when the "book" on him had not yet been written. Since then his best has been merely okay. Cam's apologist, Mike Maniscalco's favorite phrase "well that's one he wishes he had back" or like tonight "that's two he wishes he had back." Are you ready for a sub-25 win season and another year finishing out of the playoffs? Get ready because hear it comes.

    Cam's personal apologist, Mike Maniscalco's pet phrase is "well that's one I'll bet he wishe
