  1. Carolina Hurricanes: Rod Brind’Amour needs a fire under his seat by Conor Power 27 minutes ago Follow @Conor_J_Power Rod Brind’amour is a Hurricanes legend. Historically great on the ice, off the ice. With the way the season is going so far should he be on the hot seat? Edited to remove copyriight content. Follow link to read the editorial
  2. I was thinking seriously on canceling my service with century link prizm and go to you tube but if I can't get fox sports south there is no reason to leave. Did you receive notice on cancellation or what?
  3. If we don't activate before end of season. Once you make it to the playoffs their salaries don't count towards the CAP.
  4. We do if Reimer is put on IR 3.4 mil plus Dougie at 5.75 mil.
  5. LeBrun also tweeted that the Hurricanes hope to sign defenseman Zach Bogosian, who became a free agent after his contract was terminated by the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. Bogosian had five points (goal, four assists) in 19 games with the Sabres this season and is drawing interest from several teams.
  6. For what's it worth: Spector Hockey Friedman believes the Carolina Hurricanes had interest in Dallas Stars free-agent defenseman Julius Honka before Dec. 1. He wonders what the summer might bring for Honka, who needs a fresh start.
  7. I wonder if the Rags are holding out any players due to trading??
  8. I don't think the "committee" will do anything prior to the deadline. I feel that deals will be made after the season is over were you trading players with contracts and not rentals.Just my .02cents
  9. Starting next season, Matthews’ new annual cap hit will be the highest on the Leafs and the league’s second-highest behind Edmonton’s Connor McDavid’s $12.5 million. While Matthews didn’t exactly get “McDavid money”, his new cap hit will still take a big bite out of Toronto’s payroll for 2019-20. The Leafs now have over $71.9 million invested in 14 players, with Mitch Marner, Jake Gardiner, Kasperi Kapanen, Andreas Johnsson, Ron Hainsey, Garret Sparks, and Igor Ozhiganov to be re-signed or replaced. Even by placing Nathan Horton ($5.3 million) on long-term injured reserve at the start of next season, and assuming a projected cap of $83 million for 2019-20, the Leafs won’t have enough to re-sign everyone. They’ll likely have to shed a contract or two before the start of next season. Marner, of course, is the Leafs’ next priority and could cost around $11 million annually to keep in the fold. He’s indicated he’ll wait until season’s end to open contract discussions. It’s a good bet the Leafs will try to get him locked up before he becomes a restricted free agent -and a potential offer-sheet target – on July 1. I believe the main difference between signing bonus and salary it that signing bonus is guaranteed monies regardless if there is a stoppage of hockey in the near future where as salaries wouldn't get paid if that happened. It appears that the signing bonus is being counted toward's the team cap via the above information.
  10. FYI: NICHOLS ON HOCKEY: During an appearance yesterday on Toronto’s TSN 1050, Darren Dreger said the Carolina Hurricanes remain a club he’s keeping an eye on leading up to the NHL trade deadline. He notes Hurricanes GM Don Waddell has talked openly about their need to acquire a scorer, while team owner Tom Dundon said he doesn’t value or covet high-end defense when going into a draft. Dreger believes they’ll continue to link the Hurricanes with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He pointed out their previous interest in William Nylander before he re-signed with the Leafs, and they’re said to be interested in Leafs winger Kaspari Kapanen. SPECTOR’S NOTE: The two clubs seem, as Dreger pointed out, to be a good fit. The Leafs need to bolster their blueline, especially on the right side. The Hurricanes need scoring forwards. The Leafs have good young offensive forwards while the Hurricanes have depth in quality defensemen. Both sides appear to be slow-dancing toward a possible deal in the coming weeks. Then again, perhaps they’ll find other options to address their respective needs.
  11. Interesting article from James O'Brien (NBC sports) https://www.yahoo.com/sports/heat-ice-cold-hurricanes-211547215.html
