SITH LORDS

The badest of the bad. These two were beyond evil and cut down anyone who stood in their way. A master and apprentice. The perfect villains of a space opera.

Darth Vader- Jordan Staal

Anakin Skywalker. So many twists and turns in that tragic tale. And I am talking about how he was portrayed in the original trilogy. That armor was something else. Epic, terrifying, and sad all at the same time. He was always angry, but he carried himself with power. When he spoke you listened.

Jordan Staal is the Vader of the Carolina Hurricanes. He might be up there in age, but he was around long enough to carry the mantel from his older brother and be a power for the Carolina Hurricanes. He also carries the same leadership aspects of Anakin. When he speaks, he doesn’t muddle his words.

Emperor Palpatine- Warren Foegele

“Good, good, Let the hate flow through you.” When we met the emperor we saw an ugly figure that Vader and the rest of them were in awe and fear of. How could this old man really put that much fear into people? Then we saw the force lightning. We saw him pit father against son. We saw how much control he really had.

That is Warren Foegele for this team. We saw some semblance of power at first, but when the cards were on the table, Foegele created hate for the Carolina Hurricanes in their opponents. His response? It fueled him for more post-season heroics as the team went deep into the playoffs and returned to the Conference Finals.
