  1. no Necas today, with no comment. Lines look fairly similar although Foegele is on the 4th line. Vatanen is with Skjei (the Im dont know the scheme pairing) Gardiner with TVR (please TVR become clairvoyant and anticipate the opps) Fleury and Edmunson on the 4th pairing
  2. John removed the Canes from his Twitter bio.
  3. If Twitter profiles are official then Forslund only has NBC listed now.
  4. Update on Pesce from Waddell today: Pesce will be cleared for non contact activities at the end of August and contact at the end of September.
  5. If im picking pairs against the Rangers: Slavin-Hamilton Skjei-Vatanen Gardiner/Fleury-TVR we need skating against the Rangers. Now if we go against Washington then I insert Edmundson to hit people.
  6. Waddell said, about 2 weeks or so, the Pesce could be ready as early as the first round of the playoffs. I assume that means after the play-in series. Hopefully we hold out on playing him until the end. We have 9 other defenders and 6 are top 4 types.
  7. Roster is up max McCormick is the biggest surprise. Really surprised no Bishop too.
  8. Thanks for sharing that was pretty good
  9. The upcoming keys for these players: Suzuki- get stronger and stay healthy Rees: no suspensions (dark horse roster challenger) Bokk: keeping up the confidence Cotton: how ready is he? He is a realistic 4C candidate Keane: making sure his D positioning is strong. Those 5 have a real shot at being on the roster within 2 seasons. Keane, Cotton, and Bokk are next season possibles.
  10. Kaski has signed a deal to go back to Europe. McKeown may or may not stick around. If not, we can replace his name with a veteran AHLer
  11. If the AHL team, wherever it will be or if it will be, will have some serious talent influx at the end of next season. Suzuki, Bokk, Rees, Sellgren, Murray, Drury?, Puistola, and Honka to the team. Bokk, Sellgren and Puistola could join the AHL squad this coming season if they wanted but it isnt sure at this point if they will. If the AHL can string together a decent year to be in a playoff spot then this inject of youth and talent could push them over the edge. Bokk-Bishop-Mattheos Rees-D. Cotton-Smallman Lorentz-Suzuki-Cotton Puistola-Murray-Tieksola?Drury?Killenen? Sellgren-McKeown Forsling-Keane ?-Honka That is a solid group past March of next season or whenever. Got the possibility of adding another European or two to the group if that is who we draft in the first couple of rounds in the draft
  12. interesting you used eyeball test with Suzuki. pun intended? Suzuki was on a pretty bad team and his numbers shot up once he has some talent around him. I think another, hopefully healthy, season in Juniors will be good for him and he should be a great addition to the AHL squad at the end of next season (if there is one).
  13. Suzuki, Lorentz, and Ned are at camp
  14. I agree to a point. TD did come in a good time with Svech, Necas, Aho, Turbo, Slavin, and Pesce but... A trade of Nino & Rask Signing of Mrazek and claiming McE while burying Darling Signing Aho with all that signing bonus money Trading for Haula Going to 89 million in salary this season which included adding depth like Dzingel, Gardiner, Skjei, and Vatanen. i dont see any of that with PK and Francis I have little faith that we would afford Dougie with PK
  15. Recap TD’s ownership: Pushed out Francis. Response: “OMG how could we, he is our franchise guy and moving the org forward. “. Yet we made the playoffs. Pushed out Kaiton. Response: “OMG how could we, he is our voice and you can’t have Canes without Kaiton. TD is so cheap“. Yet we preserved and are doing well as an organization Wouldnt re-sign Ferland mid season for what he wanted. Response: “OMG how could we, I am not eating until Ferland is signed. He is the exact forward we need, TD is so cheap. “ It turned out to be a great decision. Now he won’t give Forslund a different deal than 17 other employees. Response: “OMG how could we, he is our voice and you can’t have Canes without Forslund. TD is so cheap“. Im seeing a trend. Yet the team on the ice is 8-10 wins better. He just dropped 89 million on salaries this season plus Aho and Reimer’s signing bonuses for 20-21. We are getting a practice ice facility that may attract FAs. And so on.
  16. He / the team have gad some genius moves, good moves and some bad ones Genius: Nino trade, Darling trade, 2019 draft Good: Original Mrazek signing, Marleau trade. CdH signing and the trade. Haula trade Middle of the road: Hamilton trade, Trocheck trade (potential to get better), Skjei trade (could get better) Bad: Gardiner deal, Not signing Lehner, not trading Ferland this off-season brought down what was a really good stretch for them. We’ll see how this off-season goes before I say he is bottom tier.
  17. No Waddell signed a multi year deal. TD originally didn’t understand why he couldn’t just keep paying him like a normal employee vice being under a contract.
  18. FA frenzy will start November 1st, 2020 Right now we have 9.149 million in space. At the same time we will have to put some 3.5 million aside for performance bonuses from this season. So we have about 5.6 million in space to improve the team. That is if we dont save any space for the 20-21 performance bonuses from Svech and Necas. Both of them are likely to max out at 3.187 million, total.
  19. John is great but that is quite an extreme stance.
  20. I get it but John isn’t cheap. He has national money in his corner. If Tom is making provisions based on the amount of games played next year, it would be in John’s best interest to get more money on the national scene. Based on Waddell’s case that is exactly what it sounds like. Probably would be similar money for less games and less travel.
  21. According to Friedman we'll more than likely see the following on the next CBA: 20-21 & 21-22 seasons 81.5m cap 22-23: 82.5m cap limit on signing bonuses and variations in salary on a player from year to year in their contract. cap on escrow, starting at 20 next season and going down language for opt-out of return to play
  22. Another reason this draft will be different, signing bonuses will be paid before the draft. Trades during the draft may be greater as teams try to maneuver around the flat cap.
  23. The 2nd lottery is shortly after the play-in round is over.
