  1. If Forslund knew this may be on the horizon, it could explain some of the difficulty in negotiations.
  2. I see no way the salary structure works with what it on the horizon for the Canes (and the COVID economic uncertainty), PLUS the cost of acquisition.
  3. I've made this statement before, but it's true. I was in the building the first game after the trade that brought Cole back. EStaal was being lackadaisical about getting back up the ice after a turnover, and Cole skated up behind him, put his stick in EStaal's back and pushed him up the ice. Yeah, that quote pisses me off. On Ruutu, loved the guy but he would pass up a hockey play to make a hit. You need to balance that out. Give me a Scott Walker and a Tim Gleason any day. Had the edge when needed.
  4. They can call it what they want, but 24 teams made the playoffs. Some teams just got a bye. The lottery should have been for the teams not in the playoffs. 8 teams were awarded a second chance with the expanded playoff format. That was their reward. Losing a playoff round shouldn't have put a team in a position to profit.
  5. 50/50 chance of me throwing something at the TV tonight. Rangers, Penguins, Leafs, and Oilers.
  6. With the uncertainties due to COVID, I would imagine TD is trying to work a deal with a lot of stipulations on what could occur. How many games played? Will they be able to play? I would also imagine that Forslund would like some guarantees and has enough stroke to get it...somewhere. While I want Forslund to stay at any cost, that's not the way business works. Sucks for us
  7. Again, losing Forslund would be a blow, but it's business. I've talked with both him and Tripp a few times over the years. They are both very approachable, and love the game and the team.
  8. Losing Forslund would be a major kick in the cods. He is the soundtrack for Canes hockey. I understand business, and that there are two sides to everything. Dundon may not be able to match the national dollars available. Sucks major
  9. Flying wasn't too bad today. The only people sitting on a row with someone were people traveling together. They didn't a good job of social distancing. The concourse was not crowded.
  10. Drove a car up to MI to give to my daughter. Going to fly back today. Honestly not looking forward to this
  11. There really isn't a lot of fighting in the playoffs. Eliminating it though may lead to more cheap shots if the refs don't have a minimal tolerance for that kind of stuff. Brad Marchand, I'm eyeballin' you. No licking
  12. Hey, only one more year of paying HWSNBN $2,333,333. You are welcome
  13. I don't know exactly how to feel about playoffs now. Playoff hockey in an empty arena? It's going to be weird.
  14. Can we just say that we can't foresee a pandemic shutting down the league?
