  1. Today
  2. At some point you just have to realize there are player haters out there and move on. Nothing will be good enough because that player somehow kicked their granny down into the creek.
  3. It's official: RF hired as Seattle's GM. https://twitter.com/PR_NHL/status/1151903469915254784
  4. Making sensible statements only leads to unwanted attention.
  5. Somebody shake me awake when anybody cares what happened 3 years ago. I like what happened last year. Faulk earned his AAV and then some in the playoffs, was reported on multiple occasions to be a leader in the room, and to tarnish that with past hyperbolic history seems irrelevant to me.
  6. Whatever. The guy had three abysmal years in a row and only last year began looking like he had a clue again until Hamilton got healthy and left Faulk's much-heralded "offensive contributions" in his dust. $5 million is a lot of money for a guy who's supposed to score goals but doesn't and can't protect the puck in his own end.
  7. Not a realistic option from a monetary perspective (real dollars as well as cap). If Toronto is having trouble coming to terms with Marner, can you imagine what his contract negotiations with the Canes front office would be like, lol? And If the Canes didn't tire of the negotiations and trade him before he even signed, anything that he would sign would likely be a slap in the face to Aho and Turbo. And hamstring the Canes negotiating position when Svech comes up for renewal.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Interesting article about blue chips who need a change of scenery...and Gauthier was on it because of the logjam: https://thehockeynews.com/news/article/six-young-players-who-could-use-a-change-of-scenery-ahead-of-next-season I guess this is a good problem to have....
  10. If that is true, then it is imperative that the Canes don't try to low ball JW. If it is a 1 year deal, it should be in the $4.5-5M range. Once again, in order to do so, and most on this board seem to really want JW here to continue the transformation of this team into a perennial contender, then the team needs to move a contract. If they could move Reimer and his $3.4M deal, I believe they would, but the trade partner would probably want Carolina to pick up part of the tab. Moving TVR's $2-2.5M deal may be easier. If McGinn gets the $2.7M he asked for today, I would say try and move that contract. Then again, I can not see where he is worth more than Martinook at $2M. In any case, they need to shuffle the deck and come up with a few bucks.
  11. I seriously didnt give it any attention based on our cap. This would entail multiple moves.
  12. Toronto fans would go crazy if that trade went through. would I be crazy to say no to it?
  13. Oh those crazy Canadians. https://editorinleaf.com/2019/07/14/toronto-maple-leafs-marner-trade-haul/
  14. My list so far is Aho Svech Teravinen Dzingle Haula Nino Necas Slavin Bean Hamilton Mrazek
  15. I might of missed something but I haven't seen anyone wringing their hands over spending to the cap. I will admit it is a rather new experience for many of us long time Canes fans who have grown accustomed to a budget team. I think it is more a curiosity at this point over how the McGinn arbitration works out and the Williams negotiations go. Talk about moving a Dman is legit as we seem to be at a point where if there isn't a path to the NHL for a prospect it may be time to move someone. Then again I could of missed something.
  16. Gonna be some tough ones here. Also dont know what the roster will actually look like then but for now. Aho TT Svech Nino Dzingle Foegele Slavin Pesce Hamilton Ned I know I am missing a forward I am reserving that spot for a future either draft pick (Suzuki?) or trade. I put Ned as the goalie for now but could be Mrazek if he gets a new contract and continues his run from the end of last year. Thats my protect list
  17. The canes are two years away from having to make the ultimate decision when it comes to the expansion draft and I thought this thread could be something we can visit or revisit in the next year or two to get thoughts on who people here would consider protecting for the future . Now granted times can change with lists or rosters based entirely due to contract / agreements . So the canes have a total of two years to figure out who is their main core . with that said lets get this thread going !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rules to the nhl 2021 Expansion draft of Seattle . 1. Clubs can protect 7 forwards 3 defensemen and 1 goalie or 8 forwards and 1 goalie 2. NMC must be protected unless the player waives 3. 1st year and 2nd year prospects are exempt 4. Clubs must expose 1 defensemen contract under 2021 -2022 who played 40/70 games , 2 forwards under the same requirement and 1 goalie under contract or rfa must have received qualifying offer 5. players with career threatening injuries who missed previous 60 games cannot satisfy exposure requirements unless nhl allows it . so now that we have that under way . Who do you see the canes possibly keeping / letting go ?
  18. It's legit funny how so many people were like " i wish this team would spend a little closer to the cap " and now that the canes have some who were for that are now having second thoughts . Can't please everyone !
  19. Im with you guys. He had a few bad years under Peters then all of the sudden has a damn near great year under RB. Sounds like Peters system was the problem. Without Faulk backing up the goalies a few times the team misses the playoffs. If it were up to me I would keep him and try and resign him. If the negotiations arent going well I may look to trade him but only if the return is good.
  20. I know that's how the NBA does it, not sure about the NFL.
  21. I kinda like the process where both sides provide a number and the arbitrator is required to pick one or the other, whichever is closest to his assessment of "fair". That greatly reduces gaming your ask.
  22. Canes at risk of being grabbed if they're not kept with the big club: McKeown (young RH d-man, gotta believe he'd be snapped up in a heartbeat) Forsling (I don't have a feel for his desirability other than we thought him worth trading for and he's a d-man who's still only 23yo) Bishop (McKegg was signed to a one-way by Rags; Bishop is 4 years younger and for some reason I see his desirability as similar) Forsberg (any NHL team need a back up goalie?) Carrick (probably safe) Lintuniemi (probably safe) Wallmark and Fleury are both non-exempt, but I see them as already being penciled in. I'm sticking with my prediction that The Committee has more trades up it's collective sleeve.
  23. I'm very disappointed you didn't say 'DiGi will have another GiGi', but maybe next time...
  24. Standard arbitration practice of asking for too much to get what you really want.
  25. Cap hit 6.25 because he is 35+ cost: 3 million for his signing bonus then 2/3rds of his remaining 1.25 million salary or 833k. That 833k is split over double the remaining years of his contract. He had one year left so its split into two years or 416k per season. the 2nd year, although paid, doesn’t count against our cap hit like most buyouts because we are charged his full amount this season. end cost 3.866 million, 2019-2020 3.416 million, 20-21 416k
  26. Holy hell Brock! $2.7 million? I love your intangibles but your point production isn’t worth that much by far!
  27. Ok, someone on another board pointed me to the relevant language regarding waivers and it looks like all otherwise waiver eligible Canes will be up for grabs if the Canes don't keep them with the big club. From the CBA : ARTICLE 13 WAIVERS AND LOANS OF PLAYERS TO MINOR LEAGUE CLUBS 13.1 A Club shall not dispose of the services of any Player in which it has a proprietary interest by Loan to a club of another league without first having complied with the provisions of this Article. The Waivers that are recognized by this Agreement are Regular Waivers and Unconditional Waivers. 13.2 The "Playing Season Waiver Period" shall begin on the twelfth (12th ) day prior to the start of the Regular Season and end on the day following the last day of a Club's Playing Season. Subject to the provisions of this Article, the rights to the services of a Player may be Loaned to a club of another league, upon fulfillment of the following conditions, except when elsewhere expressly prohibited: (a) Regular Waivers were requested and cleared during the Playing Season Waiver Period;
