  1. That is my assumption, a long with Bean, Gauthier, Necas, and Kuokkanen. They are in Raleigh or traded elsewhere.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. Marty will be a UFA. No protection required. Of course Seattle will get a week to negotiate with him and potentially make him the selection. Up to Martinook to sign.
  6. I think it depends on what ya like. more of a goalie fan, Mrazek’s mask would be cool. As long as Mrazek’s face isn’t in it the tattoo should age well. Meaning it won’t look outdated if Mrazek isn’t long term here. the alternate logo is an easy one Brindy holding up the cup is fairly timeless
  7. Meant bishop. Thanks for the catch.
  8. Sending Forsling, Bishop, & Gibbons down is 2.3 million in savings giving us 4.8 million. Williams at 1 million with 3.5 million performance for playing 20 games and Maenalenan at 1 million. The Canes would have 2.8 mil left to bring players up as needed and space to acquire 5 million cap hit player at the deadline, if needed.
  9. Unless Williams opposes the idea, we need very little space to keep Williams on a performance bonus deal.
  10. Supposedly not. He wants to leave BC better than what it is now. We’ll see come April.
  11. It’ll come down to the NHL accepting Grey as our road colors instead of white. That would open up a door for every other team. Costing Adidas money too (probably the biggest approval authority in this).
  12. I don’t see the issue with keeping Williams. We sign him to 800k-1 million deal with a bigger bonus that is really easy. Let it absorb in the money we get back from the Marleau deal next year. now it’s about Necas and Maenalenan having room/playing time.
  13. McGinn and Forsberg probably weren’t staying past 2 years either way
  14. Pesce/Faulk. Slavin will be protecting Hamilton.
  15. Necas not playing his 10th game this year kept him safe from the expansion draft. He will not need to be protected.
  16. my concern with those three on a line is the defensive liability.
  17. I put something similar in the offseason thread but, Marleau and HWSNBN's cap hits are earmarked for Svech's extension. Marleau's cap hit will probably go to cover Williams' performance bonus next season, probably 50-75% of it. I hope we get McGinn is also put on a two year deal. Then the protection questions comes down to how Faulk, Fluery, Foegle, Haula and Wallmark are handled.
  18. We don’t need to protect Dzingel, Marty, Hamilton, Ned, Mrazek, or Necas. who we protect should be based on how Bean and Fleury do this season and next. Also who is kept after this coming season will play a role. Unless Nino blows up for 35 goals the next two seasons, I make him the exposed forward. He would have one year left and we probably can’t afford to re-sign him.
  19. Toronto fans would go crazy if that trade went through. would I be crazy to say no to it?
  20. Standard arbitration practice of asking for too much to get what you really want.
  21. Cap hit 6.25 because he is 35+ cost: 3 million for his signing bonus then 2/3rds of his remaining 1.25 million salary or 833k. That 833k is split over double the remaining years of his contract. He had one year left so its split into two years or 416k per season. the 2nd year, although paid, doesn’t count against our cap hit like most buyouts because we are charged his full amount this season. end cost 3.866 million, 2019-2020 3.416 million, 20-21 416k
  22. The efficiency includes Dzingel having a lower rating due to playing on a low Corsi and negative ES team in Ottawa for three years. Also as the team improves performance other guys ratings will improve as well.
  23. Maybe. Rumors he may go elsewhere if an extension isn’t reached.
  24. What is crazy to me is: A. Pittsburgh has gotten worse. B. NJ still has bad goaltending and Hughes isn’t worth that much in terms of standings. C.Rangers can’t afford everyone they have now D. The flyers, really? Their goaltending continues to be awful. E. The panthers who have to compete with the the other 3 have a better chance than anyone in the Metro? Please. F. We have the same odds as Montreal who has remained neutral this offseason? Will enjoy being 2-3 points off the Metro lead this season.
