  1. Come to Raleigh, we can't pay you, but it's a nice place to live.
  2. Early in the process I said this was a guy we should look at. Glad DW reads my posts! Just kidding.
  3. Mabye I shouldn't have, but I questioned Ferland's toughness and dedication. Martinook and CDH played with injuries that required surgery after the season, but Ferland sat out most of the playoffs. I thought he pretty much disappeared after Christmas. He had a couple big hits, but I think he took himself out of games more often than he made an impact.
  4. TD has plenty of ammo to take a swing at someone else, and I'd be very surprised if he didn't, at some point. I think Montreal may have opened Pandora's Box, and I will not be surprised to see more offer sheets in the future.
  5. I will have no problem with Aho as long as he continues to play hard. While these guys are part of a team, they also have to look out for themselves.
  6. I have to believe Ferland's price has to be lower than what he wanted mid season. Is he worth going after? I feel like we need some toughness, but I'm not sure about Ferland. Martinook and De Haan played with injuries that required off season surgery, but Ferland missed a lot of playoff time with an injury that did not require surgery. Kind of made me question his commitment.
  7. I would love to see a free agent day or trade deadline when Canes fans come away excited about the improvements to the team, instead of wondering what in the world just happened.
  8. Mabye there hasn't been one because a team couldn't get a player like Aho as cheaply as the Habs offered. Oh, and what's wrong with being aggressive when you get a chance like this to improve your team?
  9. Well, mabye they will decide not to match, and let him go. They shouldn't have ever let it get to this point, but if Aho would rather be in Montreal, let him go.
  10. I don't think it's an act of aggression, I think it's a smart move. They get a player like Aho for a first, second, and third? I don't think there are many teams in the league that would not make that deal.
  11. It seems that this may have created a lot of hard feelings towards Aho on the side of the fans, and the team. The sad thing is, is that this never had to happen. DW and TD should have given Aho an offer on par with some of the other young stars in the league. I'm wondering if both sides have burned bridges. At this point, it might be best to just let him go.
  12. I thought TD was the rebel that was going to come into the league, and do business differently. Well, it seems he got played like a cheap fiddle.
  13. If the Canes match, does Aho have to sign, or can he still sign with Montreal?
  14. After a real feelgood season, I don't feel very good today.
  15. If Aho doesn't want to be here, I'd let him go. I blame the Canes for not negotiating in good faith. The goalie coach left, the coach of Charlotte left, the Asst. GM is leaving. It might be possible that this is a lousy organization to work for.
  16. You were questioning people's level of fandom, and saying you were with the team regardless of possibly losing their best player, and now you want them to move? Please make up your mind.
  17. What's the point of being a fan? You have a nerve asking that. Nobody would be concerned with the future of this team if they were not fans. We got a taste of success last year, and we don't want to lose our best player, and wait another 10 years. Aho might be gone, and based on the way this team operates, Slavin, Pesce, Hamilton, Faulk, Svetch are all going to be gone when their contracts are up. And, I don't give a flip about the Jets.
  18. Based on the actions of the Canes manangement, if I were a player, I'd rather be in Montreal, too. I think I smell smoke from bridges burning.
  19. Really? Aho is the leading scorer. Plays on the PP and PK, and makes players that he plays with better. In other words, the best player we have, and probably the best player we have had in Raleigh since a young Eric Staal.
  20. If I were a STH, I would wear an Aho Habs sweater to every game. They can't let their best player walk. Even if we get compensated with a bunch of draft picks, it could take years to recover from losing Aho.
  21. Speaking of Rod, it was reported that he was the lowest paid coach in the league. Does he get a big raise, or will he eventually take his talent elsewhere?
  22. If we let our good players go when it's time to pay them, it really doesn't matter who the coach is.
  23. If Aho is gone, the house is falling down, anyway.
