  1. Wow! these are rich team problems...both Necas & Goat are at the beginnings of their NHL level career, & we're arguing over which one...soon it will be both and right now it's just a numbers vs losing a players on waivers vs salary cap thing. BOTH made the team...BOTH deserve to be at the NHL level...Both will be in our top 9 soon. These are good problems to have. You could argue the same thing on defense...or even in goal. The Canes are the deepest they have ever been in quality talent on every level. This could be really special, & I for one am just going to sit back & enjoy it!
  2. Fox watch 2 games down - 28 to go! I can't ever remember a time when the Canes were so deep at the NHL level, AHL level, Jr / draft pick level...this could be an epic run! I really want to thank Francis for setting this up...yes I was upset that he wouldn't pull the trigger to improve the team at his final trade deadline...But there is no way that the Canes are in this position without his insight into rebuilding this team, & organization! Thankfully, Waddell & the committee has continued this and added in a little more in FA & risk taking knowing that the young core is strong! The present & Future look so bright!!!
  3. Gauthier didn't go thru waivers. He would have been claimed! He is waiver exempt all year.
  4. CAROLINA HURRICANES PROJECTED CAP HIT : $79,950,289 PROJECTED LTIR USED : $0 PROJECTED CAP SPACE : $1,549,711 CURRENT CAP SPACE : $1,549,711 TODAYS CAP HIT : $79,950,289 This from Capfriendly now has TVR on IR, & Max McCormick on SOIR - Season Opening IR. Not sure what the difference is, but I'm sure it has to do with cap savings vs IR time. No one on LTIR. 20 man roster has got to be for cap savings(who thought I'd ever say that about the Canes!), & probably since no one was picked up on waivers. Send em down save a little cap space. then either guys come off IR, or you do a couple of call ups for the west coast trip.
  5. The Arizona Coyotes claimed goaltender Eric Comrie off waivers from the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday, while the Jets claimed defenceman Carl Dahlstrom from the Chicago Blackhawks. All other players placed on waivers Monday cleared. Boom there it is!
  6. It's only because he is waiver exempt...he is ready to be an NHL back up, but it will be better for him to play more games in the AHL. Next year he will get his shot...as long as he continues to develop. Ned got a one way deal next year. He helps the Canes this year by being the one goalie they can move down or up without losing anyone. Ned's time will come.
  7. Looks like Sweden... Dominik Bokk (born 3 February 2000) is a German professional ice hockey forward for Rögle BK of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL), on loan as a prospect for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL).
  8. No we're not over anymore...Already sent down Gibbons, & Claesson that's 1.425M which should drop the Canes below the 81.5 limit.

    2019 Draft

    Source: Sporting news: Carolina Hurricanes Much like the Flames, the Canes are coming off a successful season in which their homegrown youth played a prominent role in the team's march to the playoffs. Carolina is oozing high-end skill throughout the organization, and they came to Vancouver armed with multiple high-round picks. Drafting center Ryan Suzuki with the 28th pick was a steal, but the subsequent selections of speedster Jamieson Rees (44th) and Patrik Puistola (73rd) were just the beginning of a string of home-run swings on excitable prospects. They got first-round quality in Finnish power-play quarterback Anttoni Honka (83rd), while NTDP defender Domenick Fensore (90th) put up nearly as many points in the second half as heralded teammate Cam York. The hits continued into the later rounds, as the Canes snatched up a fair number of high-upside prospects in the fourth round in mammoth defenseman Cade Webber (99th) and excitable playmaker Tuukka Tieksola (121st). Double-overage winger Kirill Slepts (152nd), who was ranked fourth in my overage rankings, clearly is one of the most NHL-ready prospects out of any draft holdovers. Carolina also took several upper cuts in rounds six and seven, beginning with goal-scorer Kevin Wall (181st) and ending with two centers - hard-shooting Blake Murray (183rd) and slick stickhandler Massimo Rizzo (216). Yes, the Canes had a dozen picks, so the law of averages is on their side. But the attention paid towards puck skills, speed and point-producing potential keeps their already-impressive prospect pool among the best in the league. Grade: A
  11. Ask the rangers for the Jets 1st rounder, & maybe settle on the Rags 2nd rounder. Other teams like LA, Colorado, & the Ducks also have 2 - 1st rounders if you don't want him to be in the East.
  12. Don't care how many points or goals he gets...It was a desperate trade deadline type of deal that was made before the season even started, & we got Pu for him from a team that had 3 first round picks in this year's draft...we could get one of them even with a condition of him resigning? Yes, I know they just wanted him gone, but we were robbed. Nino for Rask did make up for this blunder.
  13. It's funny how the two teams I pull for can be tied in the standing, and yet I feel so different about each team. The Pens who I've been a fan of since 1981 are just not that good this year. They win and are in a playoff spot despite JR's horrible moves this year. If they make the playoffs I see a first round exit at the hands of TB, the crapitals, or the Islanders. They are just not that good this year. On the other hand i'm so pumped by this year's Canes team. Same # of points, but a much different feeling about this team. Except for the Skinner move I like everything "the committee" has done with this team. I'm not only excited and expect this team to make the playoff, but I could see them winning a series or two. I don't think anyone would want the Canes in a first round match up!
