  1. I like Varlamov as an option but I don’t know that he is going to accept the Canes offer. If I were guessing, they are looking for a guy that will accept a 2 year, in order to make room for Ned as the starter. The backup we’d sign to a one year deal. That way we have a slot for Ned next season. We could also find a starter for one year then have a backup on a multi year deal. I don’t see V fitting in either scenario.
  2. No surprise. We won’t get any love. Svech was 9th on the rookie list.
  3. VGK as you mentioned Pens would have 4.8 TBL 5.3 needing a RHD and 4 RFAs TML have 7.4 with all the needs and RFAs SJ, Calgary, Capitals, Arizona!!!!, and Oilers would be in a hard place to improve their roster with 1.5 million less.
  4. If the cap is 1.5 million lower, a few teams are going to crap themselves.
  5. Darling hasn’t been bought out because we don’t have a 3rd goalie on contract.
  6. Even giving him a Darling type contract could put us in a 4 year mediocrity of goaltending. I bet it’s more like 20 million over 4 years. Last 4 seasons in sv% (at least 10 games) 18-19- 22nd 17-18- 56th 16-17- 56th 15-16- 17th last 4 seasons GAA (10+ played) 18-19- 8th 17-18- 49th 16-17- 56th 15-16- 21st I’d give him one more year and at 5 million but not 4+ years at this point.
  7. Adam Gold is saying Mrazek wants #1 money. He isn’t a true number 1. He only played in 40 regular season games. On top of that he has just as many bottom 10 stats seasons as top 15. Huge risk giving him number one numbers. McE is 36. Giving him fringe starter money on more than one year is dumb. On top of that he has appeared in 28+ games just 4 times in his career. We don’t know if he can handle 30 games again.
  8. To a bad contract too. They why of trying to win is not smart. Its Red Wings level.
  9. Throwing term or big money at either doesn’t make sense. Some team, like Philadelphia, might be dumb enough to throw 20+ million to Mrazek over 4 years. Anything over 2 x 2 is too much for McE. At his age a one year deal is the real way to go
  10. I think we’ll see some activity really pickup once the cap debate concludes. a ton of teams are really fretting the idea of a 81-82 million cap instead of 83.
  11. Problem is Fleury doesn’t hold enough value to trade up 21 slots.
  12. He has a 15 team NTC. To add, yes he has a 1 year deal but a team could negotiate a contract extension prior to a trade. Sign him on July 1st. Trouba was going to leave the Jets so they traded him (for a low return).
  13. Man I hope we get to fleece a cap strapped team or two like the Rangers did to Winnipeg. a couple of games of Hayes and Poink for Trouba.
  14. The player we need to go after is Labanc. That is if the reports of SJ trying to keep Pavelski are true
  15. With Karlsson signing the 8 x 11-11.5 deal, Pavelski should be a top target for us. They will have a hard time getting their roster filled out with 13 million and needing to re-sign Meier.
  16. In theory if Aho didn’t want to commit to the Canes for 8 years, he could agree to a 5 year deal with another team. When the Canes match, Aho will be a Cane for 5 more years. Yes Aho has to sign us when we match. Also, DW couldn’t offer Aho another deal in that deal. It has to be the same term and money, hence match.
  17. If I were to guess Aho’s team is looking close to the predicted amount of 8 years, 82 million and the management is trying to use Draisaitl as a comp. Draisaitl has a 8.5 million cap hit. or it could lock out protection signing bonus money.
  18. Yes this is it Lake. If Aho accepts a 10.5 x 5 with team B then the Canes match the offer or take the picks. Negotiations aren’t had.
  19. Debrincat would have been a top 15 pick if he was 6’2
  20. I dont think Carolina is getting the type of return they want on a defender move. I think that is why we have seen them pull back on that some. I hope we could get a guy like Pavelski if SJ really is going to offer Karlsson 11 million a year. SJ would have 13 million in cap space with 5 roster spots to fill and Meier and Lebanc to re-sign. Lebanc put up 56 points while only getting 14 minutes a game. Unless, SJ goes bridge on both of those Dudes would Lebanc be available as well?
  21. So Edmonton moves half their offense and doesn’t get any back? Yep, Rem, ain’t happening. On top of that they have 8 defenders on NHL contract next year, giving them three more doesn’t make sense. trade proposals like this is why I haven’t read cardiac on a regular basis.
  22. DW wants the deal done now but it isnt. DW said him and Aho's reps will talk more at the draft. To answer your question I think he meant ASAP when he said today.
  23. DW on 99 the fan today: DW's points: Keep our guys under contract that we want to keep. Ned: Could play here next year. DW would prefer him to be one of the three capable of starting as he has one more year of waivers eligibility. 2 UFA goalies: have exchanged numbers with both. Didnt say we were close on either. "Still have work to do on both of them." DW hopes JW would have a better answer about playing or not over the next 2 weeks. Not necessarily signed but helps to know whether we need to add 1 or 2 guys on the roster. DW has had several conversations with Faulk's representation about an extension. JF's reps havent given the Canes a number. DW said that the guys we had were great this season but we werent good enough. We will look to improve goal scoring for next season DW wants to get Aho's contract done today. We want a 8 year deal with Aho, no bridge deal or 5 year deal. Been that way since November. Will talk more at the draft. No timetable. My recap: we are looking to add 1 guy in the goal scoring column. May go for two if Justin doesnt come back and it doesnt sound like Justin is any closer to making a decision. Based on DW's tone, I think we've had a lot of movement in getting Aho re-signed.
  24. Big reach by Rem there. Lol
