  1. Wished they went with the Whalers navy blue jerseys. Much nicer than the green version. Everyone needs go relax. It’s 2 games. Let them try it out and see what happens. Maybe the team will sell some merchandise and the Canes would be able to bump up their payroll off the cap floor. Now theres an idea that may actually sell some tickets. What does it matter which jersey the Canes wear at home against the Bruins. The building will be 75% bruins fans anyways.
  2. If they wanted to move Skinner so bad, they should’ve traded him over draft weekend. Since they basically got nothing back, I’m sure they could have got similar return. The Canes need to acquire some sort of offensive help from somewhere because with the goaltending situation, I don’t see the canes winning many 2-1 or 1-0 games. are the Canes even at the cap floor after this trade?
  3. I really want to know what happened after the first month of the season. Skinner was on fire. Then he disappeared. Never ending rotation of line mates. i reallly thought he was the player who stepped up and showed leadership down the stretch the season before. And that carried over and he was the only player scoring over the first month last year. Then something went wrong.
  4. Coming into last season, Skinner was one of the players who really was in the mix to be named captain. He was coming off a monster season where he was leading the teams playoff charge by scoring big goals down the stretch. Lots of goals... no one knows what happened. Skinner started the year on fire. Leading the push to turn things around. He had around 10 goals in the first 15 games (or something like that) what happened after the the first month of the season for things to take a turn this badly where he somehow gets run out of town. Somehow he is the poster boy for the team not making the playoffs for 9 years. Despite the fact that he was doing the majority of goal scoring for the team. Similar to how E Staal was blamed at the end of his term. Maybe because he was not surrounded by much to help him out
  5. They were better off keeping skinner and getting nothing in return. Hopefully he had a monster season in a contract year and helped canes make playoffs.
  6. Still need one of the goalies to step up or all the moves will be for nothing
  7. I’m liking the new D. Canes have an over abundance now. There definitely will be a few more. I think the signing makes at least 2 D expendable. Maybe Faulk and McKeown (sp?) im just glad the Canes showed they will spend some $. Makes me feel better about the situation
  8. Karlsson would need to sign an extension with the Canes before they should trade for him. Or else they would to need to trade him by the trade deadline. i don’t think he would sign longtime with the canes though.
  9. I think the tweet was referring to the Canes not making any more moves on July 1, not the rest of the offseason
  10. I don’t think it is unfair to criticize TD and the committee. So far he has shown he doesn’t want to pay market rate for a GM, coach, or his RFA’s. The optics don’t look good so far. I’m not even taking into account the crease issue. The goalie situation was a mess and there really were no solutions out in Free agency this year. Last year there were options, and Francis chose wrong. Can’t really blame TD for that one. Until TD steps up and pays someone, we can only wonder. When the team has someone like Aho up for a new contract, we’ll see what happens.
  11. Yeah, I’m starting to wonder what is going on with TD. Until they pay someone, I’m going to worry. They don’t want to pay anybody. gm’s, coaches, RFA or UFA. Not a good message to send out
  12. Eklund...so it is most likely not true
  13. Tavares to Toronto. Canes better trade with leafs with their cap issues
  14. I have no problem with the signing. All the goalies were about the same in my book. All a roll f the dice. It is the comments about salary that ticked me off
  15. What the hell do the canes think. That players want to play for free. Especially for the Canes... Until the team turns it around, the only way a FA will come to Carolina is if they overpay. Canes management team needs to re-access their game plan.
  16. Horrible. darling really needs to step up or season is over before it even begins
  17. Ryan was a good player. Problem was he was over slotted for canes. Should of been a 3rd or 4 th line center. Not playing with skinner. That is why canes fans were upset. Felt he was holding skinner back
  18. Marazek it is for canes
  19. I guess it is trade or bust for the canes today...not many FAs left
  20. Isles still need a goalie as well
  21. Canes will do nothing today as per usual. With the cap going up, most teams have plenty of money to burn and most aren’t afraid to spend it to try and get better
  22. The Canes really need to sign one of their RFAs to ease some concern that they don’t want to pay the players. I really hope that Dundon is not P.K. part 2. I was was so happy to get rid of P.K and his thrift shop he was running. now I’m starting to have doubts that TD will pony up the cash for players.
  23. Changes were needed to shake things up. That is why everyone was upset with Francis for not making any changes when it was blatantly obvious that something was off with the team last year
