  1. I guess it is trade or bust for the canes today...not many FAs left
  2. Isles still need a goalie as well
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Trade really depends on how good Hanifin ends up being. The organization once traded away a young Chris Pronger because they lost patience with his development
  7. I could live with this trade, but if they trade Skinner, I’ll be ******.
  8. There was no reason to trade away Hanifin. His contract demands must’ve been too steep for the Canes. He is probably the best player in the trade for both sides.
  9. Hopefully, there is another shoe to drop nf the cnes get some offensive help for Faulk. Seems like canes return is a bit light to me
  10. I don’t know if the canes can take a chance on another backup who is not yet a proven #1 goalie. Tried last year and the experiment failed miserably. I really hope the Canes somehow get a true starter with no question marks...
  11. Can’t complain about draft luck this year. canes used theirs up getting pick #2
  12. If nothing else happens tonight, draft was already a success
  13. The problem with trading Lindy, skinner, or Hanifin is that they are just about to start entering their prime years. canes have endured the struggles of them developing at the NHL level while they established themselves. The next few years is when the canes would most likely reap the rewards
  14. Is anyone really concerned about 2020 offseason? Who cares...this team needs to win October 2018. No no need to be concerned about anything else.
  15. If for some reason, the sabres took Svech, dundon & Waddell should literally sprint up to the podium to take Dahlin. Then go back to the table and trade 2 current dmen for offensive help
  16. I have a bad feeling that the Canes will severely regret trading Skinner... i do feel that he requested a trade though
  17. Just my opinion, but my instincts are that skinner either asked for a trade or made it known he won’t be re-signing with the team when his contract is up....probably through his agent. i think he had enough is getting bounced around with different line mates every other shift.
  18. coach of the year voting already took place after regular season. I don’t think playoffs matter for that.
  19. Kruger wasn’t going to play in Carolina next year. Surprised they found a taker while keeping minimal salary. Not a bad move.
  20. It was a forgone conclusion that TD would bring in his own management team once he bought the team. With the sale dragging on almost 2/3 of the season before it closed, there was not much TD could change at that point. Once it became apparent that the Canes were out of the playoff race, it was time for action. It it would’ve been more interesting had the Canes made the playoffs. It would’ve been much harder publicly to get rid of the coach and GM. Although I feel he still probably would’ve still replaced them. You spend 300 million dollars, I think he is well within his rights to restructure the management team anyway he sees fit. Besides, who knows if Francis even wanted to stay on as GM. He was PKs guy.
  21. Dahlin is going #1. No need to even waste a brain wave on any other scenario.
  22. The only way to get the elite talent is usually to draft #1 or #2. After the first 2 picks, there is usually a drop off. Canes need to take the Russian. After that, there is a drop off. Could end up picking a player like Lindholm, who I like, but is not the elite scorer the Canes need. do not use the #2 pick to fix the goalie situation. That can be fixed using different assets.
  23. Why do I have the feeling the Canes will take Zadina... The Canes can’t afford to mess this up. They have been thrown the good fortune of a lifeline in the lottery. The #2 pick has made things much easier this offseason. This is is the chance RF never was able to get. Imagine if they would’ve won the lottery and got Laine how much quicker the rebuild would’ve been
  24. The Sabres are taking Dahlin. No need to even worry about it. It would be like the oilers passing on McDavid the year he was the lock for #1. You really think you need to give Sabres something to make sure they take Dahlin? Are you guys going crazy? If for some reason sabes get stupid, Canes take Dahlin and that is that.
