  1. Jordan staal is one of the best penalty killers in the league. He can also play On the power play. His defensive talent is as good as his offensive talents. He has played his whole career with third liners putting up some good numbers. Hopefully those numbers will improve playing with first and second line caliber players.
  2. I had really hoped that the canes would of found a way to keep him. he is a good steady dman. i feel the canes could still use a solid defenseman, and seidenberg would of filled in that role nicely.
  3. curious to see what everyone's thoughts are on if they should remove interim from coach mo and offer him a contract. i personally feel as if they should at least give him a one year contract to give him all of next season to see what he can do. i for one like the direction the team took since he took over. it took a little time for his system to kick in, but by the last few weeks of the season you can tell the team was really starting to adjust to his system. the players seem to be much more comfortable and relaxed with him behind the bench. i know some people want francis to take over next year, but i really think they should give mo the shot w/ francis where he is a now so he can keep learning.
  4. i know i have said this before, but it sure is nice to see just how classy and respectful edmonton oiler fans are. it is nice to get a different perspective on things from around the league, it just seems that oiler fans have a lot of good insight on the game and they do not go around bashing people, at least the canes. reading some of there post on this site and theres they really seemed to like cole, and just wish he would have fit in better with their system. it really seems like they didn't want him to leave.
  5. i have been reading a lot of posts about cap space and clearing up cap space. correct me if i am wrong, but aren't the canes well under the cap. they have the self imposed cap, which they need to stop to be more competitive. but in regards to the nhl salary cap they are way under and do not have to worry about that.
  6. i will give it to oiler fans they have a great appreciation for the game, and seem for the most part to be very respectful. i remember after game 7 oiler fans coming up to people and shaking hand and congratulating cane fans. total opposite of saber fan.
  7. i don't know if anybody posted this or not yet. i didn't feel like going through all of them. anyway i was checking out the oilers message boards, and it seems the fans there really liked cole, and had nothing but a lot of respect for him. it is worth checking out. http://forums.edmontonoilers.com/index.php?showtopic=46811 seems like they are really going to miss him even though his stats weren't great, but then again stats don't necassarily make a player what he is. there are alot of things that do not show up on the stat sheets that can help make a player good.
  8. never thought about it like that, but i do find it interesting and probably true that we need to look another way. that being said i am not blaming ward for not making it to the playoffs the past few seasons, but he hasn't helped either. i good goal tender will help you get to the playoffs.
  9. bayda may not be a bad idea. he has potential he just doesn't seem to be doing much with this team. much like cole isn't working out w/ the oilers. cole seems to thrive with the hurricanes. he may not be what he use to be, but i could see him returning to much better form if he returns back to the canes. there seems to be a lot of teams that want cole right now. one of those rumors is the pens want him to play on crosby's line. i think that is what he needs to. a good center for him. much like when he played with staal he seems to excel the oilers have him playing on the third line with no great center. get him back here in carolina with a good center again. just he is not worth giving away ruutu. we have plenty of young talent we can afford to lose. i also think that if we do get him back by trade deadline he would most certainly resign, maybe even at a discount.
  10. if i recall didn't mo do the same thing with irbe that he is doing to ward playing him in almost all the games and not using the backup that much. playing leighton would be wise right now. especially if they manage to make the playoffs. you do not have to look far for proof of that. look at both of the canes stanely cup runs. the number one went down and the backup had to come in (weeks and ward) if the canes do make it to the playoffs and ward either goes down or is not playing well leighton is no where near playoff ready, i understand playing ward might be there best shot at making the playoff, but then what. i still think the canes need to go out and bring in a goalie to battle ward for that number one. it might pick up his game or it might just prove what many think, and that is that ward really is a number 2 goalie.
  11. i hope this is not true. this is the second time i have seen this rumor pop up somewhere. cole for ruutu. still think that is a really bad idea, and do not see any logic behind it. if the canes want cole back they just have to wait till the offseason, and try to sign him then as a free agent. no sense in getting rid of one of best players. maybe even the heart and soul of this team. ruutu is only going to get better, and he seems to like playing here. i have no problem with bringing back cole, but not at this price. i really hope there is no truth to this http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklund/Frol...Ersberg/1/19627
  12. i don't know if this has been brought up or not, but i didn't feel like reading through all of the post. anyway, i just read this on tiops.com http://insidepittsburghsports.com/story/nh...eric-cole/7018/ ruutu for eric cole. as much as i like eric cole, and would love to see him back in carolina i do not think it is worth losing ruutu. he has been one of the few good consistent players on the canes this year. just thought i would put this out there, and see what others think.
  13. got to agree with you Forslund is one of the best in the business. You definately notice when you listen to other announcers. Not only does he do a great job at calling games he is not a total homer compared to many others.
  14. Tripp just needs to man up and ask out Ward, that is if Staal doesn't get too jealous. I don't know who he has *edit* for more Ward or Staal. He stands up for Ward and makes so many excuses for him I don't know if he wants to date him or be his mother.
  15. doesn't really hurt the canes, doesn't really help them either. hope j.r. isn't expecting this to be what the team needs, and he is out there looking at other ideas and possibilities. does anyone know if this clears any cap space or not?
