07:21 AM ET 07.16 | Of course, there are no guarantees that young draft picks will land an NHL job, and such is the case for Swedish forward Elias Lindholm of the Carolina Hurricanes. But general manager Jim Rutherford said Monday he would be "shocked" if Lindholm doesn't make the team. He also noted Lindholm was being shown about Raleigh this week "looking for a place to live in October." Lindholm, 18, was the Hurricanes' first-round pick and the fifth overall selection at the NHL Entry Draft last month. On Monday, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Canes. ... From all indications, Lindholm is on the fast track to the NHL and said Monday, "I think I'm ready." He prefers to play center but also can be used on either wing.

Raleigh is a great town, with all the schools, an 18 year old would fit right in.

Word of advice to Elias. Psst, hey bud, they will try to tell you Carolina barbecue is good, but trust me, it is crap.

I wouldn't call it crap... but compared to other styles it's severely over-rated.

I sure hope it's not the same "fast track" as Tyson Gay.

Durham is worse. There are a lot of nice areas around Raleigh.

ha!

Actually got the Delaware explanation on the difference between a Hill-billy and a Red Neck, the other day. I have never been so enlightened.

Agree with Otis and Spiny. My wife (from Georgia) made me say "crap".

But then again, she swears that the stuff they sell in Texax, while good, is NOT BBQ. Apparently it has to be pork. Beef does not count.

*shrug, what do I know, I am a Canuck*

Agree. So much depends on what you put under the sauce.

-BBQ is the process, regardless of the meat you use.
-Most people refer to 'grilling' as BBQ but it isn't.
-Grilling is done quickly. A proper BBQ takes hours.
-Grilled meats often bleed. BBQ'd meats falls off the bone.
-Some grilled meats you can play tennis with.
-BBQ'd meats melt in your mouth.

I guess it's all a matter of personal preference. I like both.
