    In-season trades and player moves

    I was joking. Don’t use emojis (maybe I should start) but was definite sarcasm. It just looked like Minnesota got so hosed in the trade for Nino, we should offer them Darling. Of course, no one is taking Darling if we eat 50% of his salary, which I think is the most allowed. If I’m not mistaken, he got run after allowing 3 goals in one period the other night for Charlotte. If he looks after his money, the guy is going to be rich, so I probably shouldn’t feel sorry for him, but I do hate to see someone scratch and claw to get where he was when the Canes signed him only to fail so badly. Not sorry enough to ever see him play for the Canes again, though.

    Forgot about that. Still would like to bring him back to replace Rask on the 4th line.

    Does Minnesota need a goalie? We have one available in Charlotte. A conditional 2022 7th round pick should do it. If you haven’t looked at the In Season thread, McE is having knee soreness, presumably necessitating Ned’s recall.

    On Bishop v. McKegg, Bishop does not have to clear waivers, right? Pretty sure McKegg would get claimed. Makes the decision easier if that’s the case. And he has earned a spot with his play, though Bishop was doing fine before he got hurt.

    Well let’s hope it works out. But give TD one for not cheaping out. I did read his last 20 goal season was 2015-6. Minnesota must think he is past his peak. But Rask only had one good year.

    Hope we have something else in the works. Still have an abundance of D with Fleury sitting in Charlotte and Fox needing to be shown we have a place for him. So props to the Committee, of whom I’ve been critical. Now keep it going. Nino is a nice addition, and opens the 4C for McKegg or Bishop, but we need more.

    Put down Eric Staal all you want. No way Rask is in his league, even 25 year old Rask vs. 33 year old Staal. Not sure exactly how many games Rask played, but he has one goal and 5 assists. For $4 million/year.

    There you go. We are probably getting ready to move Ferland. But I still don’t see why Minnesota does this trade unless Ferland is headed there.

    Bringing up Ferland was a good point. Wonder if he is headed to Minnesota in another deal? There has to be something I’m missing.

    Was Nino centering their 4th line with 3 fingers on one hand? What is his contract situation? Something doesn’t make sense if this trade was straight up w/us retaining no salary.

    It is said. Let it be done!

    This. How excited was everyone last year about Zykov, who led the A in goals and looked great in his brief call up. Management must have thought he would contribute this year because they signed him to a 2 year one-way contract. Then he spent 20 games in the press box and was waived and given away for nothing. I bet this time last year he had decent trade value. I believe in Necas, and maybe Fleury or Bean, but have questions about a lot of our Charlotte guys moving up and contributing at the NHL level. IIRC, Boychuck tore up the A but could never make an impact for the Canes. Outside of Svech, I’d take proven NHL production. Also interesting that you mentioned Staal. I think there are contending teams that would love to have him for the role he played in Pittsburgh. Outside of face offs, I’m not sure we have really missed him. It seems like we are scoring more without him, and the streak says our record may be better without him too. He might be a part of a package that would bring back the scoring forward we really need. I think he has a NMC, but he’d probably waive for most teams since the reason he came here is in Minnesota.

    I also wondered if Ferland really just wants out. 9 (possibly soon to be 10 years of no playoffs could do that, and the way this team has been “managed” since last year ended might not inspire confidence). He is getting to play on our top line with teammates that seem to bring out his best, but maybe he thinks he will do just as well somewhere else. If he has told management “I’m not signing at any amount”, that could get relayed to the public as “far apart” just to save face.
