  1. If I were GM: Biggest questions though: Does Kabs join the KHL(hopefully)? Does walker retire because of injuries and his wife? Does Brindy retire? (doubtful) 1. Re-sign Ruutu and Rosie for multi years. 2-3 2. Re-sign Babs and Jokinen to one year deals 3. Trade either babs or corvo, whichever gets more value, spec and a this first rounder for J. Staal- we have too many 3rd line centers, we dont draft well until recently and its a late pick, also staal is a expensive 3rd line center there. 4. Sign Zanon to a 2-3 year deal 5. Get Cammalleri Cammaller-Staal-Ruutu Whitney-Staal-Rosie Samsonov-Cullen-Jokinen Eaves-Brindy-Walker/Bayda/Rat Pitkanen-Gleason Zanon-Wallin Babs-Conboy Would be money to get Camm, Zanon, and Staal. Staal would replace cole's salary. Losing Seids, Corvo's and Kabs salary will cut some 6 mil which would cover cammalleri (with some left) and if Walker retires because of his wife we could be at the same salary we are at now with zanon because we lose tanabe's and hamilton's salary. The only hit in the pocket will be staal's and the re-sign raises. I know we have a imposed cap but, we got to compete.
  2. he really needs to be speaking up to his coach and get this team fired up.
  3. yea November as 3 sets of 3 gms in 4 days. The 1st and 2nd with Oilers and Maple leafs at home. Then at the MLs on the fourth. Get a one day break then go right into another 3 gms in 4 days with @Craps and then Senators and Thrashers at home. Craziness. November is ridiculous but, luckily the Canes play the MLs and Thrashers a couple of times or the team wouldnt make it out alive
  4. anyone know when they will be wearing them again?
  5. I understand why they go on the lengthy road trip. I remember in the first couple of seasons when the State Fair came to town they had a State game and then Canes game right after. That was such a logistical nightmare. I just dont understand why the 3 gms in 4days then a long break.
  6. 1. Montreal 2. Philly 3. Washington 4. Pitt 5. Rangers 6. NJ 7. TOOttawa 8. Carolina 9. Boston 10. Tampa 11. Buffalo 12. NYI 13. Florida 14. Atlanta 15. Toronto alittle more realistic. Montreal improved from last year. Pitt will be close to the top of the atlantic but lost way too much to stay on top. I think Carolina will barely miss the top of the Southeast but, barely make the playoffs. Tampa just misses out on the playoffs with the lack of chemistry due to all the new players and coach. Again almost all of the atlantic makes the playoffs
  7. not a big fan. I had a lot higher hopes for the jersey. Too much black. The eyes should be on the shoulders in color. And the bottom with the Hurricanes flags in black and silver. Hurricane flags are red and black. What happen to the white? Wont be buying this one.
  8. If we are trading Williams I would much rather get Bouwmeester. And also, if we are getting another Dman, what are doing with Kaberle and wallin? Im with everyone i dont see another forward dor dman trade with one of our younger forwards.
  9. it would take a few steps and a lot of maybe's 1 trade kaberle to lose the already over self cap salary 2. hope wallin leaves for sweden 3. trade foward(or what JR gets from trading a forward), boychuk, D spec, and a 1st rounder for Bouw 4. then add letowski for depth. subtract >5.5 mil add 5.6mil so it would have to be a higher end forward (like whitney) to dump enough salary. Dont know florida would want whitney though, might someone like ruutu Samsonov-Staal-Williams Cullen-Brindy-Walker Ruutu-Sutter-Eaves Larose-Bayda-Brookbank reserve: letowski Bouwmeester-Gleason Corvo-Pitkanen Babs-Seids reserve: melichar although the team would be good and the buzz would be higher than any other hurricanes team during preseason, there are too many moving pieces to get that to work.
  10. 1. be in the top third in the NHL in penalty kill and PP 2. dont get behind in a game early 3. keep the energy and hits up all game 4. stay healthy
  11. 1. 8 2. 7 - big games the crowd is going. A Lot of the other nights i have been there the crowd is non existent. 3. 9. crowd has too much hospitality. how about making the RBC center a place where no team wants to visit? 4. 6 5. 6 6. 8 atleast most of the parking is pretty close to the arena 7. 2- there is nothing there besides wendy's and a high school cafeteria
  12. I think Cullen should be moved. Sutter will not be getting any better in Red Deer or by fighting with Bayda for the 12th forward spot. I like Cullen but we need to make room for Sutter. During close games, Staal and Brindy could double shift on his line if needed. Dropping him and Kaberle would drop 5 mil in salary and 5.07 in cap space. Re-sign letowski for a 13th forward. pretty good lines Samsonov-Staal-Williams Whitney-Brindy-Walker Ruutu-Sutter-Eaves Bayda-Rosie-Brookbank Reserve- letowski Pitkanen-Gleason Babchuk-Corvo Wallin-Seids reserve-melichar with the 5 mil in dropped salary. JR can afford to sign Seids, Babs, Staal, and Ruutu longterm.
  13. i like the O'Sullivan idea but, where would he play? The Canes would have to move another forward to make this room him. Plus, there is no telling in todays market how much it would cost to re-sign the guy. 50 point guy will make a pretty nice chunk of change.
  14. i voted decent. I voted this because: Vet presence: I dont think Wallin is the guy that will lead the defense as the Vet. Dont know about kaberle either but he is going to be traded. Has Corvo been with the team long enough to be that guy? Attitude: Will babs bring a good attitude from Russia? Will Pitkanen bring a good attitude? Chemistry: As someone has already pointed out in the Ward thread, we'll see if they play good together. Depth: Will Seids be re-signed? Will Melichar be worth a *edit*? Will Borer bring his good play of last season back this season? How will Babs and Pitkanen play for the team? I voted this over time will tell because the overall talent level has risen with the additions of Babs and Pitkanen. And didnt vote bring on another cup because of all the question marks.
  15. Thats kind of *edit* way to treat a player who wont waive his NTC.
  16. i really doubt 3-4 new defensemen. Unless by some crazy circumstance JR can trade Kaberle. I would say at a max 2 new guys. Babs (new as in not with the team last season) and FA signing/trade. im with others and not counting the chicks too early.
  17. I personally think this is great. Yea he was jerk but, he will give us a good dman. With him and a FA signing we could have a nasty team plus without having to lose Cole, Williams, or Whitney.
  18. Fondest memories Seeing Carolina beat the undefeated Senators (my g.f at the time first game-wife now) Ron Francis night- and seeing Babchuk score that rocket from the point (upper deck though) Taking my brother to his first ever game and clinching SE division againist FLA Game 7 of Eastern Conference finals and almost getting kicked out Game 7 SC and sitting 4 rows from the ice Game againist BOS this past season and sitting up againist the glass and seeing a players face get smashed againist the glass---Awesome! lost the game though, Chara in OT Watching the Molson miracle, 3 seconds left Staal goal againist NJ
  19. as i mentioned before Whitney has a NTC and I dont see him accepting a trade to Vancouver, just because Vancouver doesnt have a great chance at winning the cup. Dallas, Anaheim, Detroit, Pitt, and NJ because of their good chance at winning then Edmonton for sentimental value.
  20. commie was a great fan favorite but, I just hope JR goes in another direction.
  21. him ok Gleason-rozsival Corvo-Bieksa Wallin-Kaberle Would you play 7 and get Seids some playing time who would he be the healthy scratch?
  22. Right now I just hope JR signs Larose, Seids, Nolan, Letowski, Hordichuk, and Conboy. Give Ruutu a good offer. Trade Cole for a defenseman Samsonov-Staal-Williams Whitney-Cullen-Eaves Larose-Brindy-Walker Hordichuk-Letowski Gleason-Trade Corvo-Kaberle Wallin-Rozsival Seids then if ruutu accepts the offer because noone else will give him the offer he is looking for then, we have more depth. If not we are going to get a couple more picks in the draft.
