  1. just imagine if muller had been the coach from the beginning of the year
  2. what is it you all wanted me to answer? refresh my memory. if it's about who to replace him i responded on that a few pages back i forget where exactly but i can dig it up if there is interest let me know
  3. i don't either. the reallignment would have bought us some time with more ticket sales to fans from other teams. but now that that is no more or at best delayed we face some serious problems. this market just will not allow many more years of non playoff hockey
  4. i see a few benefits in that dadanov has made it clear that he wants to play in the nhl, that's why he asked to be traded from florida. so it creates some competition for those nhl spots here. in some ways dadanov has proven himself more so than matsumoto in the nhl. yes matsumoto is the better ahl player, but dadanov would seem the be the better nhl player. one concern is that in some ways it is another recovery project by JR although the good thing is that we didn't really lose too much for the chance (ignoring the checkers). the biggest concern is that dadanov has threatened to go to the khl, but that's probably just because florida didn't have a proper nhl spot for him.
  5. in all seriousness those players for us weren't really doing anything for us. we had no need to keep them. at least this way dadanokov has a chance of replacing ponikarovsky or another player on our fourth line for next year he wears number 63 in florida can he keep that?
  6. Canes Acquire Dadonov, Jenks from Florida Panthers Matsumoto and Lindstrom dealt to Florida in swap Wednesday, 01.18.2012 / 5:43 PM / News By Terrell Williams RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired forwards Evgenii Dadonov (ehv-GEH-nee do-DON-nauv) and A.J. Jenks from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forwards Jon Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom. CAROLINA GETS Dadonov Jenks FLORIDA GETS Matsumoto Lindstrom Dadonov, 22, is in his fifth season of professional hockey in North America, and has played 15 games on the NHL level with the Florida Panthers this season, totaling two goals and one assist (3 points). The Chelyabinsk, Russia, native has earned nine points (5g, 4a) in 20 games with the Panthers’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage. Drafted by the Panthers in the third round, 71st overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Dadonov (5’11”, 185 lbs.) has skated in 55 career NHL games for Florida, totaling 10 goals, 10 assists (20 points) and 16 penalty minutes. He established career highs in NHL games played (36), goals (8), assists (9) and points (17) in 2010-11, and represented Florida at the 2011 NHL All-Star Game in Raleigh as one of 12 rookies selected to participate. Jenks, 21, is in his second professional season, splitting the year between San Antonio (AHL) and Cincinnati (ECHL). A native of Detroit, Jenks has skated in 28 games for the Rampage, without registering a point, and has totaled three goals and three assists (6 points) in 13 ECHL games with the Cyclones. Originally selected in the fourth round, 100th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Jenks (6’2”, 206 lbs.) played four seasons for the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) before turning pro, tallying 79 goals and 114 assists (193 points) in 249 career junior hockey games. Jenks helped the United States capture gold at the 2010 World Junior Championship in Canada, totaling three goals and two assists (5 points) during the tournament. http://blogs.newsobs...r-dadonov-jenks discuss
  7. i agree, on the right line brandon would easily be a 100+ point player
  8. 1. Who is the first Canes player to be traded? Gleason 2. When does he get traded, before or at the trade deadline? Before 1 point 3. What team does he go to? Flyers 4. What do we get back? Picks/prospects (Don't know how specific I need to be on this one let me if this is too vague.)
  9. nothing really. but who else can they use from our team with skinner injured? don't get me wrong he's a pretty good up and coming defensement but i see it as more of a sympathy spot just so we have someone included from our team with skinner out there's really no one other than faulk they could somewhat legitimately select
  10. well i guess i'm not the only one i think skinner would but doubtful that pitkanen would make it. no one else really deserves it. at least we had 4 people there last year.
  11. i've heard nail is more the ovechkin type and grigorenko the malkin type and i'd rather have a malkin type personally and for this team think it would be better so if columbus takes nail we could still get grigorenko and i think that'd be good
  12. well there's skinner obv but not with his concussion. faulk in the rookie cat. that's all we have
  13. well he's the only one who can really be sent there without it being a complete joke
