  1. I got the email about group tickets ( a long time group leader). Goodness the ticket prices have risen.
  2. Saarela thinks the organization is poorly run. Is that enough news?
  3. If Edmonton will take Forsberg and the Rangers.conditional pick, sure Ill take him. If they want a first rounder, nah.
  4. I did apply for the operations job they had open a month ago. SuRpRiSiNgLy I didn’t hear anything back.
  5. The great thing about a group think is one person doesn’t make the group. Unless TD replaces a majority of the group with poor decision makers, management won’t systematically destroy anything.
  6. What are you talking about? He isn’t going to pay our GM the same as others because our GM isn’t the same as others. its a shake up of the traditional hockey world but crumbling into nothing? The guy has only spent the most amount of money as PK and it’s been smart money.
  7. We traded D Carrick for D Wood from San Jose. Seems like a pretty straight forward deal. Canes are trading a guy they probably werent going to be able to play because of organizational depth for a guy that is signed for one more year and adds to the RHD depth of Charlotte. Wood will more than likely be a career AHLer but, has the potential to be a bottom pairing guy.
  8. My point was we give him a PTO to see if he makes the roster. I don’t have him on the roster already. kjun- he played 60% of the games the 3 good seasons. His last season was complications with concussions. he is a big dude that hits. Our defenders aren’t big hitters but they do stay on the ice. He would be the third highest remaining hitter on defense from last season despite only playing 35 games. We lost our top hitter, CdH, and the two hitters that averaged 1.5-2 hits a game are Faulk and Hamilton. He also does a decent job of moving the puck in ES.
  9. Why not? He’s had a rough past 2 years with injuries. He’s had a solid 3 seasons before that although he only played 60% of the games.
  10. Chance to get some depth that would allow us to trade others.
  11. The number 1 to me is over-reactionary deals in UFA (Lucic, etc) that keeps you from keeping good talent. I believe the team has done a great job at keeping yours and my number one concerns from becoming an issue while stock piling more youngsters. We can re-sign Svech to a 9.5 million AAV deal without spending anymore cap money than we are today (and not lose anyone) and we can save as much of the money coming off in two years for Necas. If they aren’t getting first line money then we saved more for someone else. I think Wallmark and Foegele are the key questions to our cap mystery, which sounds weird. If Wallmark turns into W. Karlsson and Foegele turns into Cole then we might have to play some cap games. If they end up being third line players, we’ll be good for a long time. Even if they are 2nd line players and want to be paid 5-6 million we can always find a buyer for Reimer next offseason and sacrifice Nino to Seattle.
  12. That is my assumption, a long with Bean, Gauthier, Necas, and Kuokkanen. They are in Raleigh or traded elsewhere.
  13. The 2020-21 Charlotte team will be good and will be a good mix of talent and experience. adding Honka, Puistola, Sellgren, and Cotton with the possibles of Filipe, Zimmer, Killinen, Henman, and Koch to a group that includes Eetu, Mattheos, and Booth/Helvig will be fun to watch.
  14. Isn’t Waddell the one who said he was trying to take less of a role? TD laughed and said he had a lifetime contract. why would he take on the mess that is Minnesota? TBH why would anyone in the twilight of their career?
  15. The Canes have a ton of competition everywhere. Goalies- 4 vying for two spots Defenders- 4 vying for the last two slots offense- have 4 youngsters and a couple of veterans trying to make the roster solid opportunity across the board.
