  1. I am just happy that we have to worry about being OVER the cap instead of UNDER it for a change
  2. I am absolutely flabbergasted! This made my whole morning. This is the kind of move we needed to make, right age, right position, will fit right in with the style we are looking for. Happy F'ing Friday!
  3. Saw a rumor of $21 million in first calendar year including signing bonus. I stand corrected on my earlier comment that nobody would send him an offer sheet.
  4. Dallas trying to build the oldest team in the league?
  5. Nobody is tendering an offer sheet for AHO. Please stop. You do not give up 4 1st round picks for Aho, he still has some proving to do. Crosby and McDavid would be the only 2 players that would be worth it. Just stop, it is not going to happen, yon need find other things to wring your hands about.
  6. Let's just win the Cup this year and let him know that we have won 2 Cups since the Rangers last one. That way we can tell, Jack Johnson, er I mean Adam Fox that he chose poorly.
  7. We have never seen playoff Jordan in a Canes uniform, I like the view.
  8. @canes2017 - You want to re-read the thread? He is a businessman, not a charity. He fronted the money to keep them running, when it became clear they were not going to get rights to NFL contracted players, he bailed and rightly so.
  9. Should rename this thread to "Tin-foil hats for sale". You are basing him moving the Canes to Houston from an article that leads with the word "Perception" on an opinion tweet, from what would be considered disgruntled employees, that the boss spent $70 million so he could get an app that processes data quickly. Gee, I bet nobody else could write an app to do the same thing, with more features in about 4 months and a couple of hundred thousand dollars.
  10. Hamilton Svech Turbo 4- Slavin 5- Nino
  11. Hope this helps... As has been the case since 1979-80, 16 teams will qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The format now is a set bracket that is largely division-based with wild cards. The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season record and regardless of division. It is possible for one division in each conference to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends just three. In the First Round, the division winner with the best record in each conference will be matched against the wild card with the lesser record; the wild card with the better record will play the other division winner. The teams finishing second and third in each division will meet in the First Round within the bracket headed by their respective division winner. First-round winners within each bracket play one another in the Second Round to determine the four participants in the Conference Finals. Home-ice advantage through the first two rounds goes to the team that placed higher in the regular-season standings. In the Conference Final and Stanley Cup Final, home-ice advantage goes to the team that had the better regular-season record, regardless of the teams' final standing in their respective divisions.
  12. Chip Alexander‏Verified account @ice_chip 48m48 minutes ago De Haan back at practice. I also saw him skating before the Alumni game yesterday.
  13. I like our chances to stay in the 3 or move up to the 2 positions in the Metro. The Isles have faltered lately 2-4-1in their last 7.
  14. I like what I am seeing out of Hamilton as of late. Seems to be turning into the player that we thought we were getting at the beginning of the season. I have also noticed a fair amount of grit in his game lately. Some extra shots to players in front of the net or in the corners, initiating more contact, oh and he has some points lately as well.
  15. Big difference between his personal cash vs. spending against the CAP He can do whatever he wants with his money, paying players comes out of the organization's money. He is not the sole owner of this team. Apples meet oranges.

  17. I am hearing a lot about Ferland and point production as an individual in a lot of these posts and comparing him to other forwards that are pure goal scorers. He also brings a great locker room presence and is well liked by the players. Most importantly, he makes it harder to play against us, something we have missed for years. That is a difficult thing to find in the NHL today, someone who is physically punishing and can put up points. In every case of this type of player, the fans love them as well. Most of the time you hear people say how much they love them until they are not on their team anymore. The team and the fans badly need this type of player. Martinook is a great compliment on the 4th line to add that presence on the grinding line too. Over-payment, in this case, is something we can afford to do and sends the right message to other players that we are serious about building a team to be in the playoffs for years to come.
  18. I just read that too, undrafted defensemen, signed by Detroit. Never heard of him before today.
  19. The 3-0-2 record is all anybody cares about this early in the season. Those numbers will come down.
  20. Thanks! I had Hamilton scoring the first goal, when I saw him rip it and it went on I thought I at least had that one. Have to look and see which ones I got right. That was fun, thanks rem! I am on an undefeated steak, playoff pickem and now opening night!
  21. Obviously, we are just making sure that we work hard, and uh, you know make good plays, and uh play hard for 60 minutes. If we just play our game, and uh pressure the puck, hopefully we will, uhm get the win tonight.
  22. http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/24803093 ESPN Hurricanes Rankings, Predictions and playoff chances: Bold prediction: Brind'Amour proves he's more than just Rod the Bod, transforming the Canes into a tough team to play against (something they were not last season). We'll forget about his corny schtick of labeling training camp groups team "Grit" and team "Grind" as he's nominated for a Jack Adams award.
  23. Not sure he had much of a chance there with the cycle of the puck below the goal line. Puck gets centered and bang, back of the net. Darling looked confident, strong push to challenge the shooter, decent job directing pucks away from the front of the net on rebound opportunities. The committee will have their work cut out for them, hopefully contract $$ commitments dont overrule talent and drive.
