  1. Before we talk too much about Faulk going, can we get rid of Murphy first? He's coming up soon as a UFA but this is Dahlbecks contract year. Let's drop Murphy, sign Dahlbeck, and then talk about what's left (IMO). Dahlbeck is a big body and will move people around. He still needs some experience but beats the socks off of Murphy!
  2. I feel Skinner is not safe today and that an injury was said to get him off the radar. We will know by 3pm but I think Skinner might be traded today. (Just a personal feeling!)
  3. Murphy is not a NHL'er, just like Boychuk wasn't/isn't. We need to shed this guy and pick up a hard hitting D-man. We have puck movers in Faulk, Hanifin, Slavin and even Pesce. Now we need some "stay at home" D-man that will knock anyone out of our goalies way. Murphy is not that guy at 5'11" and 185lbs. He gets pushed around more than anything. We need someone equal to Byfuglien or Burns to handle the guys that target or young stars but can play too. (my wishlist).
  4. To me, Hanifin is just having a typical sophomore year. He has good hockey sense and learning the level. Faulk is currently one of our top 3 defensemen and we need to retain him (Please don't trade him!). You want to trade a defenseman, Murphy is the perfect choice. I defense is looking good and we need to let them grow. What we need is offense! We are on the smaller side and we need some big bodies to get in front of the goalie. Aho is coming into this game, Skinner is leading the team, but I am not impressed with Nordstrom. We also need physicality! The game against Toronto was embarrassing! We were getting banged in the walls, pucks were being stolen, and we did not give good pressure. (IMHO)
  5. Can't be him! The have bought his contract out.
  6. Liles is going back to the Bruins. Good luck to him!
  7. Ladd will be a great fit for the Islanders. Would love to have gotten Eriksson but Vancover had the money. The rest are good moves as well. Still looking for the Canes to make a play!
  8. I heard that interview as well. He said he was not going to make any excuses or blame anyone but then said Carolina's plan was not the same as his and, as you stated, he wasn't surrounded by scoring wingers. I hope he just burnt the bridge and never returns. Also read on the Wild message board they hope to drop him next year already...LOL!
  9. Resurrecting this thread now that the season is over and we have been through the draft. Free Agency is coming up soon and wanted to get ahead of the crowd to see what people are thinking. Who do you think will be our next Captain? I am hoping for Faulk.
  10. I have tried to find in the threads but how is Wisniewski coming along? Thanks in advance!
  11. It's a very sad day in the hockey world!
  12. My thoughts exactly!! Let's see what he's got! The Maple Leafs would be a good game to let him play.
  13. I guess that shot to the face was harder than thought! Get better, Cam!!
  14. I will say that last night showed a frustrated E.Staal...and I liked it! He put a perfect hit on Gionta, which was targeting our guys. He needs to play with that kind of grit more often but it might be a little to late. On the other hand, Lack did not look good but the defense sure looked lost in front of him too.
  15. Agreed! My opinion on Murphy is he is small and not yet strong enough in front to keep players out. He is good in the corners but I have seen him try to get the guys out of the way in front and they act like he is just a little gnat. He may be an offensive defenseman but sometimes he looks like a puck hog, to me. Keep Pesce and Slavin and let him gain strength in Charlotte...IMHO!
