Discussion Questions

  1. Are you as sad about Justin Williams not playing as I am?
  2. Isn’t it about time he come back to LA and like, I don’t know, join Jarret Stoll on the broadcast or something?
  3. Maybe Willie Mitchell can come down and be a special guest, I don’t know, just throwing out ideas here.
  4. If the Hurricanes were at home, what storm surge celebration would they do when they inevitably win this game?
  5. Jack Campbell starts. If he wins, do we have a full blown Goalie Controversy on our hands?
  6. Justin Williams. That is all.
