  1. I think the canes tried on Henrik and Markstrom. Obviously it didn’t work out there.
  2. Skinner had the unfortunate problem of being drafted by the Canes when they had some really bad teams. I still don’t know what happened, but the second to last year he was here, he was a leader on the ice and played like a man on a mission to get the Canes into the playoffs. He was scoring every night and playing some damn good hockey. There were many people on the boards that felt like he should be the next captain after E. Staal was traded. Then the next year, the Canes made one of the dumbest decisions ever with the co-captain announcement after bringing in Williams—who every but Bill Peters and Francis knew shouldve immediately been named the captain. Predictably, The season was aweful and Skinner had a terrible year—his play went backwards. And then he was traded...or given away.
  3. Vegas basically just got back to the cap. That was quick.
  4. There are still plenty of options available for the Canes. I think they should still try to keep one of their own UFA d-men and get another forward.
  5. I know most of us wanted the goalie, but I think Jarvis will eventually help the canes
  6. What a buzz kill...things went off the rails quickly for the canes
  7. After watching your captain almost get his head taken off on a viscous hit, you would think somebody would actually try and respond and do something. Instead, not one player responded and the team proceeded to get abused for the rest of the game. Something needs to be done. No way that should be allowed to happen. I was actually embarrassed to be a Canes fan at that moment.
  8. Skjei was one of the better dmen for the team during the playoffs. He brought some physicality and was jumping into the play on offense quite a bit. I think he will be just fine moving forward. Don’t understand why everyone wants him out.
  9. I wouldn’t trade a 1st round pick unless it is for one of the Minnesota defenseman with term left on their contracts.
  10. If I was on the committee, I would be very hesitant to trade away a 1st round pick or any top prospects. This team is just too inconsistent to go all in this year. They are just missing “something”. Last years team was on a mission to make the playoffs and played their hearts out every night. This years team, with more talent in paper, just can’t seem to bring it every night. it may just be a case of the new players just not buying into the RBs philosophy 100%. If that is the case, then maybe they trade Haula and/or Gardiner before the deadline to re-work the current group. im my opinion, the team needs to add some more toughness/physicallity to the current group. Could really use a steady Calvin DeHaan type player on the defense. I don’t know. I’m as frustrated as everyone else at times with this team this year. But I do think they need to change things up a bit. Sometimes, addition is through subtraction. Maybe, whoever is not buying all in, just needs to go.
  11. This team needs to make a Gardiner for DeHaan type trade. Need more grit and physicality on the back end. That is the main problem. This team is soft and too easy to play against on both ends of the ice. Too many finesse type players, Could use more sand paper type players to change up the mix/style a bit. A player like Ferland who is actually healthy and can stay on the ice would be nice.
  12. The team could’ve had an incredible month after the 5-0 start. The 3 games in 4 nights west coast swing followed by 5 days off still doesn’t make any sense. The San Jose game was a schedule loss. However, the Ducks game and last Jacket game are concerning. Need for some of the forwards to get going
  13. I’m not sure why the Canes waived Forsberg instead of Reimer? Forsberg is younger and cheaper. Probably more of chance he gets claimed than if Reimer. Unless Reimer really outplayed Forsberg over training camp
  14. It’s preseason game. Main thing is to avoid injuries.
