    There are likely 30 other teams that would gladly slot Jordan in that spot. Yes, I'm probably one of his bigger fans.

    Off-Season 2018

    Thanks Rem. Good article. I've been a major critic of Darling and what he failed to deliver last year. I was certainly in favor of cutting losses and shipping him out. I'm glad to see that management is keeping a sharper focus and more scrutiny in evaluating his overall readiness. This article provides some hope (there's that 4 letter word again). I do trust in Rod, Waddell and TD to stay on top of this for the good of the other players and the upcoming season. Darling is by far the biggest risk to this team, but just may be ready to deliver on the original deal. Being in shape, staying focused, and playing to one's ability should be automatic for a pro. He owes it to himself, the other players and us fans to get it right. I agree OBXer, it is "hard not to root for this guy and want him to succeed."
  3. Better, with hopefully more to happen. Hope they're looking at Goalie situation for fix and not going in with 2 big question marks.

    I sure hope so.

    el-cheapo may become desperado.

    Get lost. That's my opinion.

    I'm glad your rant is over since it is way of the mark. You haven't been anointed the arbiter of who stays, goes or is a fan of this team.

    de Haan is a great addition. Nice waking up to this news. Still very anxious about goaltending, but at least they'll have a better set of defenders helping out. Would be great to add more by moving Faulk.

    Thanks for that. Wonder if Skinner listens to him any longer. He should. Cole has always been a guy who won't hold back. I didn't like his signing with Montreal, but this sheds a little light into his thinking back then.

    I'm calling el-cheapo. I hope you're right (there's that 4 letter word again, darn it).

    Who gets the crease

    Thanks Slap. That helps. My net: They did their homework (and "hope" work). That includes Mike Bales (per DW) feeling they can fix some technique issues and hope he can revert to form as a starter like 2016-17 season. Personally I wouldn't take that gamble, but understand the predicament. RF would have done the same since he also couldn't pull off a trade to fill what is needed. IMO nothing has changed around here.

    My post reads "The Canes did not get better today ..." Not sure what you mean. If other Goalies were psyched by Cam's presence that is speculative. I also doubt it.

    If the plan is to deal Skinner and/or Faulk you get a proven Goalie back. Not sure who they're talking to. If that isn't in the cards you sign Lehner, not Mrazek.

    Who gets the crease

    Let 'em fight it out in pre-season. If they both fail use 6 skaters.

    The Canes did not get better today with Ward going to Hawks and the Mrazek signing. I'm not buying into the "excellence" pitch from TD based on the Goalie situation at present. Hopefully any deal brings back a true starter. Facts are stubborn, and Rem's pointer to their respective rankings among those playing at least 20 games is all I need to know. In this case HOPE is a 4 letter word best not mentioned.
