  1. Unfortunately, Not many of the Canes young players have improved their trade value...if they had any trade value to begin with
  2. The main mistake was that the Canes we’re relying on a bunch of young players to step in and start producing immediately. Basically, none of them have done much. now the problem is that they need to find players that can actually score. And unlike the cheap young player contracts, the type of players the Canes need cost money. We are going to find out if TD wants to spend money or not. Didn’t want to pay Lindholm, hanifin, or skinner, which is fine. But now is the time to get some players to help the offense and give this team a boost
  3. I still don’t understand how Skinner went from being in the discussion to be named captain of the team heading into last seasod...to becoming vilified as the reason that the team missed the playoffs for 9 years in a row. Like he was the sole reason the team stunk. the team should’ve ran someone else out of town. Not one of the two players you had who is actually capable of scoring 40 goals a year.
  4. So now that the canes have ****** away their 4-1-1 start with 3 game losing streak and the current 4 game skid, does the management team pull the trigger soon on something?
  5. Canes need to make a trade for at least one forward. It is becoming more and more obvious every game. This should’ve been addressed in the summer, especially after trading skinner.
  6. The Canes need some more offensive talent. They need to figure out something soon before it is too late to recover. the brass made the huge mistake of penciling in Necas into a large role for the team and it didn’t work out. All you you have to do is look and Lindy and Skinners stats this year to see what happens when players get to play with some actual offensive talent as both are producing at a solid pace right now. All I know is that skinners 13 points would sure help this team right now. So in order for the Canes to acquire some offensive firepower, they are going to have to trade away some defense. Fortunately the canes have players that can step in and fill the hole of whichever player gets traded. We have some defensive depth. There is no one that can jump in and help the offense currently in the organization (with the lone exception possibly being Rask). i just don’t know if Nylander is the player I would pull the trigger on. Between assets traded away and hefty contract, I don’t know if he is worth it. He’s a nice player, but I don’t know if can be counted on to be the man.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. Still need one of the goalies to step up or all the moves will be for nothing
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. I think the tweet was referring to the Canes not making any more moves on July 1, not the rest of the offseason
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Eklund...so it is most likely not true
  19. Tavares to Toronto. Canes better trade with leafs with their cap issues
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. Horrible. darling really needs to step up or season is over before it even begins
  23. 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
  24. Marazek it is for canes
