  1. Derek Joslin cleared waivers and can now be bought out.
  2. Same here,Ill be there as well. They didnt have an away game in Dallas last year. I went to the one year before. Since Checkers moved to the Western conference last year I was able to get down to see them play(twice)Texas Stars in Cedar Park.
  3. I agree Biron makes alot of sense if Peters isnt ready
  4. The Canes have placed Derek Joslin on unconditional waivers with the purpose of buying out his contract, general manager Jim Rutherford confirmed today. Joslin, 25, was due to be paid $750,000 next season in the second year of a two-year, one-way contract signed last July. Joslin was traded to the Canes by the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 18, 2011. A defenseman, the Richmond Hill, Ont., native was shifted to forward by Canes coach Kirk Muller in mid-February and used on the fourth line. In 44 games last season, Joslin had two goals and two assists, with 35 penalty minutes. Read more here: http://blogs.newsobserver.com/canes/joslin-placed-on-unconditional-waivers#storylink=cpy
  5. Found this article today on Suter http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/adrian_dater/06/29/NHL-free-agents-predictions/index.html?eref=twitter_feed Ryan Suter, Nashville Predators Best fit: Carolina Hurricanes Hear me out: Suter has talked some about wanting to play in an NHL city that's family-friendly, where he could raise his kids. The Raleigh-Durham Triangle area is tough to beat. Players who play for the Hurricanes rave about it, with many choosing to retire there. Besides, this is going to be a very good team again. The 'Canes still have a young, top goalie in Cam Ward and just recently added Jordan Staal. Carolina could use a leader on the blue line, so it's a good place for Suter to escape the shadow of Shea Weber. If he went to Detroit? Sorry, too much pressure there. Everybody will be comparing him to Lidstrom, and that's not fair. The 'Canes have $22 million of cap room. Plus, owner Peter Karmanos knows Detroit wants Suter badly, and he still has a huge rivalry with Wings owner Mike Ilitch. (Remember that Sergei Fedorov offer sheet in 1998?) What better way to improve your team -- and stick it to your rival? Suter and the Hurricanes are a natural fit.
  6. Why make a trade now for Staal and have to give something up when hes a UFA next year? Why not trade for Nash or Ryan and then have Staal next year? But,I have a feeling PIT will come to JR and say look I cant just let him walk and not get something in return now.They know Staal only wants to come here so we are in a better position now to go ahead and grab him now for almost nothing and get a winger.
  7. WE WANT(NEED) BRAD RICHARDS!!! Hes speculated he'd like to be here now for 5 to 6 months! He doesn't want the big lights of NYC or Toronto!! GET IT DONE JR!!!
  8. Anyone going on a Dallas trip? Ill be there!!

  9. Stephane Yelle and Harrison Reed have been traded to Colorado for C Cedric Lalonde-McNicoll and a sixth-round pick
  10. Interesting note on Osala in his bio...... Personal Admires fellow Finns Saku Koivu, Teemu Selanne and Jari Kurri … Also looks up to Erik Cole of the Edmonton Oilers.
  11. Per Chip: Despite a 3-0 loss to Sweden on Sunday, Finland earned one of the byes into the Olympic tournament quarterfinals in Vancouver. But the Finns will play without defenseman Joni Pitkanen, according to The Associated Press. The Canes' Pitkanen was ejected with a game-misconduct penalty late in the second period for checking Patric Hornqvist in the head. The AP reported that International Ice Hockey Federation spokesman Szymon Szemberg said Pitkanen had been suspended and would not play Wednesday in the quarterfinals. "He's a key part on the power play and obviously on the breakouts he's such a good skater and mobile defenseman and sees the ice well," defenseman Sami Salo said. "Obviously it's a big loss but it opens up a spot for Janne Niskala." The hit left Hornqvist crumpled along the boards. After getting up slowly, he needed help to get off the ice before walking slowly toward the dressing room. Hornqvist had been penalized for tripping earlier, but Sweden's Niklas Kronwall had a vicious, open-ice hit on Niklas Hagman that did not result in a penalty despite leaving him with a bloody mouth http://blogs.newsobserver.com/canes/pitkanen-suspended-for-quarterfinals
  12. Totally missed the game!! Can anyone tell me if there was some good battles with Staal and Gleason? Good win for the US
