  1. I think the biggest lesson in this is TD needs to understand that being an long term negotiator is good for business but in this business you lose in the future with such.
  2. The Canes will lose more than 21 million in a year if they dont match. All the media and fan momentum is gone. Any chance of signing UFAs is gone. All the money the TD has put into the building is wasted. It makes zero sense for the TD and the Canes to not match an offer like this. If he wasnt going to match, his best bet would be to keep the team as cheap as possible and let the arena remain the same. Then move the team after 7 years.
  3. The goalie situation will be an interesting one over the next two years. 19-20 NHL- Mrazek, Reimer AHL- Ned, Forsberg ECHL-Booth, Helvig KHL- Koch 20-21 NHL- Mrazek, Ned AHL- Koch, Booth/Helvig ECHL- Booth/Helvig Trade / buyout of Reimer 21-22 NHL- Ned, UFA backup AHL- Koch (spot NHL starts) Booth/Helvig ECHL- Booth/Helvig The best case scenarios for us are Reimer and Forsberg have a solid year. Maybe Forsberg can be our backup in 2 years. If not both moved for futures. The outlook isn’t strong for Hevlig/Booth to get regular AHL starts over the next 3 years unless we loan them out.
  4. I think the Canes are expected to make more this season.
  5. I agree. Also if they let Aho go, all things they have worked to build with the fans is completely gone. Building would be empty again.
  6. Well it’s negotiation. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for the team to only buy 2 years of UFA time for a guy who is your franchise guy. The players know that the cap will jump big time in 4 years and they want a piece.
  7. Because the team was set on 8 years, he wanted 5. He made it happen on his own terms.
  8. We should have 11. Assuming McGinn gets 2 and Fleury/Forsling gets 1.2 million then we have 7.8 or so in space.
  9. DW said they are working on it but Arbitration was filed. Either way a deal happens. and Kyruke and slap beat me by a couple of seconds
  10. I think we have 9 million left after signing McGinn and Aho. do we save it for Williams or make ourselves available to get Kreider or TB forward when they have cap issues in a month? or do we save it?
  11. I wonder if we move Forsberg or Reimer. if not its Car: Mrazek, Reimer Cha: Ned, Fors Greenville: Booth, Ned i guess we could lend one out again.
  12. The team won waiting on signing a goalie. After everyone else signed their goalies, we owned the power with Lehner & Mrazek. Heck Lehner took one less year in Chicago.
  13. Shannon confirming Mrazek to Carolina.
  14. The only thing this offer sheet does is lower my likelihood of buying a Aho Jersey. He is only here for another 5. In the end, I have no ill feelings towards him.
  15. Doubtful. We have about 6-7 million in cap space. Still have to find out what Williams is doing.
  16. go google another organization who had another other owner and GM change then their people's time was up the next year.
  17. what was the Montreal GM going to say? the truth?!? "yea, um, we know we got played into signing a cheap offer sheet because Sebastian wanted to stay in Carolina. He wanted 5 years and we were glad we could help out his negotiations with Carolina." Also all the folks leaving were Francis and JR guys. New management teams usually get new people. A lot of chicken littles today.
  18. Nothing went sour. Aho wanted 5 years and we were set on 8. Instead of going the whole summer, he went out and found someone who would give him 5. He gets what he wants a month earlier. Knowing that Aho didnt come back with an offer says Aho was only going with 5 years and didnt want to waste his summer worrying about it.
  19. the RFAs want 5 years because the cap is expected to take a big jump over the next 4 years. We add in the Seattle market money and the new TV deal. The revenue and the cap is expected to make a good jump.
  20. y'all are crazy. Aho wanted 5 years and he made it happen. Aho didnt counter after Vancouver. My guess is he didnt want this to drag out all summer. He doesnt want to leave, if he wanted to leave he would have gotten more than the Canes would match. DW will slow play cuz they can.
  21. I think Aho is just proving a point here with the offer sheet. He wanted 5 years, the team wanted 8. He is basically forcing the Canes hands at 5 years. Canes wait a full 7 days, screw over the Canadians, and easily match.
  22. Montreal Offer Sheeted Aho 8.4 x 5. high bonus money
  23. outside of getting a goalie there wasnt much to do today. We basically have two options for starting goalie and can control the price. So, we are own the negotiating power at this point. More than likely get another roster player for cheap later in a trade.
