Did you know that typhoons and Hurricanes are really same thing, we just call them typhoons or Hurricanes based on where they take place?

It's true; look it up.

With the link between typhoons and Hurricanes in mind, don't you think it's abhorent what the Carolina franchise has done to the Phillipines through Typhoon Haiyan?

If you're out of the loop, here are some headlines:

To Whom It May Concern:

It has recently come to my attention that "Hurricanes" and "typhoons" are both the same weather phenomenon; however we use the different terms for these storms based on the location of the storms.

Knowing this information, it has become evident that the Carolina Hurricanes are responsible in part (via Typhoon Haiyan) for the death of thousands of death in the Philippines, some estimates as high as 10,000.

The hockey community can not stand for this. Please cease any actions further leading to the loss of human life, both in the Philippines, other foreign locations, and at home in our very own backyard.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email. Thank you in advance for your response.

Gameday Prediction

Patrick Maroon scores a hat trick, legally changes his name ot Hattrick Maroon.

Classic Moment

To help commemorate the Ducks' 20th year this season, each gameday I'll be posting a clip of a classic moment from the team's history against that night's opponent. Here is today's...

Remember when the Carolina Hurricanes were still the Hartford Whalers and therefore a much cooler team? Here's the end of a 1996-67 season game in which the Whale defeats Anaheim 4-1, including a pretty odd situation that results in a goal automatically being awarded to Hartford without a puck entering the net.
