  1. I could see us moving Faulk later if Fleury, Bean, or another LHD looks top 4 ready and another looks starter ready this season. As much as I would like it to happen, Rod really likes Faulk and his leadership.
  2. While true, my hope is that we have 7 permanent defenders on the roster. Not necessarily shuffling Bean back and forth when we need a 7th to travel.
  3. Waiver rules Well I learned something today, that I was right about the date but not the time frame. Waivers starts 12 days before the season starts, midnight of October 1st turns over into the 2nd which is the official start of the season. Waivers will start on the 20th of September. All players can go through camp and play in the 1st three pre-season games. After the 3rd game they must be sent down or have to go through waivers to be sent to Charlotte. We could manage with emergency call ups of Mck and/or Forsling. that would only work if we only carry 6 defenders or we now need an 8th defender. We carried 6 for most of the season except for travel. Fluery or Bean traveling but not playing. I would like to see us roll with 7 because Rod doesnt use a guy that hasnt practiced with the team.
  4. As long as they are not on the NHL roster when teams must meet cap restrictions, midnight October 1st, then they don’t have to pass through waivers.
  5. As far as the contracts go, we have 36 contracts. We still have 4 RFAs and Williams out there. We will need to save a couple of spots for our 2 1st rounders, Cotton and Martin potentially after the NCAA season is up, and a couple of other AHL veterans. That would put us at about 47 contracts.
  6. Our best option is to sign him a 1 million salary with 3 million worth of performance bonuses. The performance bonuses can be deferred to the 2020-21 cap (which may take the place of Marleau’s cap hit to some degree). signing him, McGinn, and Maenalenan would give us about 3 million of cap space which allows for a decent deadline acquisition or space to absorb some of the performance bonuses.
  7. Bishop & Forsling back on two way deals. Forsling requires clearing waivers Fluery back on a one year one way deal worth 850k. McGinn, Maenalenan, McKeown, Carrick & Forsberg are left. We have 4.6 million in space left (what a crazy time) but, that includes carrying Bishop and Gibbons at a combined 1.425 million.
  8. Early Eastern Conference standings to end next season Atlantic 1 TB 2 BOS 3 Toronto 4 Florida 5 Montreal 6 Buffalo 7 Red Wings 8 Ottawa Metro 1 Washington 2 Carolina 3 Islanders 4 Rangers 5 Pittsburgh 6 Philly 7 NJ 8 Columbus I think Florida and Montreal can flip. We can finish as high as 2nd and as low as 5th. I think 1st-6th is gonna be tight. 10 points might separate 1-6. NJ will have 80 and Columbus will be 75-78.
  9. Could pull a Fisher if we are doing well in the standings
  10. February and March was our top 5 team months, March especially. January was our worst month of goaltending, statistics wise, yet the offense really carried them.
  11. He is signed on a two way deal. I bet he’ll be back when the SHL season is up. Maybe he stays in Charlotte for the 20-21 season.
  12. Yes on a tryout contract. His ELC says he will go back to Sweden if he doesn’t make the Canes.
  13. Yes. Probably have to carry our whites against the Devils, Canadiens, red wings, panthers, etc. i wonder if Red Wings & Canadiens would gladly wear their whites at home. They did it for so long.
  14. I don’t think Sellgren is in Charlotte until his European season is over.
  15. He is a fantastic player. He would be the 16th forward to make the roster. he probably wanted a better shot at getting on NHL ice.
  16. If true, I don’t see how we carry two non-waiver left handers past TVR coming back full strength. Unless Bean is destined to stay in Charlotte all next season.
  17. Thats when they sign their ELC. He signed his ELC at age 20
  18. Saku and Forsling are waivers exempt still. Forsberg isnt.
  19. I’ll pencil him in when he signs. The thought of Marty and Foegele on the 4th line is too much excitement to take right now.
  20. Svech-Aho-Turbo Dzingel-Haula-Necas Nino-Staal-Foegele McGinn-Wallmark-Martinook
  21. We have 2 more seasons of HWSNBN we have 1 starting 4th line forward and 1 3rd pair starting defender. 1-2 extra roster players. 7.7 should be plenty.
  22. Gusev is a scoring RH winger that could be dynamic for us. Would be perfect that he only wants a 2 year deal as well.
  23. Im going to have a hard time with this for the next 3 years. Why you ask? well..... this team is going to be one of the youngest teams over the next 3 years. We lose Ferland’s age bringing us “up” this season and replacing him with a 20 year old. CdH was moved and will be replaced with an early 20s defender. Williams will presumably come off next season to be replaced with a 21-23 year old. TVR, the oldest defender, will presumably leave after this season. Reimer will be replaced with Ned. Even our 4th liners will presumably be as many youngsters as grizzled veterans. I lead with that because this team’s performance will bounce around. Much like our improbable 3 month run from worst to playoffs. We’ll be very capable of the playoffs next season with or without Williams. Will all the young players produce enough to get is there, consistently? No one knows. A young player’s defensive breakdown might cost us a game or ten. All the youngsters might catch fire and we average 3.5 goals a game, ending with 105 points. Qp5 points might squeeze us in next year knowing the Metro. The management team has to use the young players. We didn’t build it up for nothing. At the same time it could lead to varying results in the standings. At this point a B+. Aho is signed cheap although it wasn’t their doing, we got another top 6 player on the roster, Mrazek is back, we got an experienced backup while moving Darling WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED, and we should be able to utilize our deep prospect pool with plenty of insurance. We got an extra 1st rounder in a deep draft. I cant give an A because I am not sold we are getting into the playoffs with our current roster. although, i want to give Tom an A for actually spending money.
