  1. Extremely excited about the Dzingel announcement this morning...one thing for sure is that the “sit on your hands GM and cheapskate owner” narrative is officially over as of this offseason. Can’t wait for this upcoming season to start...
  2. Thank you...I like this interpretation much better because I still want to sign a goal scoring forward this year! 😀
  3. The NHL.com article I just read stated the the Canes “will” match the offer, not that they already have. I’m betting DW will wait to the very last minute and email Bergivin...
  4. Say the Canes match the offer sheet...so the 10.5 signing bonus and 0.75 “salary” kicks in year one. Does the entire 11.25 total count against the cap this year or is it some percentage of that total?
  5. OK my head is still spinning after today’s events...assuming we match Aho at 8.5 along with Mragic at 3.1 how much cap space do we have remaining for this year? Any chance of getting Brayden Point or is that another of my pipe dreams? 😂
  6. Isn’t Reimer the goalie that seemed to absolutely stone us every time the KittyKats trotted him out? Or am I thinking of someone else?
  7. What do you guys think about going after UFA Valtteri Filppula? Yes I know he’s getting up there in age (35) and he only registered 31 points this past season but his overall play really caught my eye in the Isles series. Seems like a Brind’Amour kinda player to me...
  8. LOL...ya hosers! https://youtu.be/OJE3EgTGg9k
  9. Is having the team pay the announcers salary the norm throughout the league? If so that is quite a convenient arrangement for Fox Sports!
  10. Well you know we *could* use some extra offense...J/K we all saw enough of HWSNBN to realize that he is the very antithesis of a “Rod Brind’Amour” type player...
  11. LOL...who decided the statute of limitations on HWSNBM is 2 years before we can again start calling him by his real name? Wonder what HWSNBN is up to these days? I have this vision of a hung over ex hockey player with an extreme beer belly and a tacky Russian prostitute sitting on each leg...kind of like Thor in Avengers Endgame!
  12. The question one must ask about all these potential free agents is: are they Rod Brind’Amour type of players? We all know playing for Rod is no picnic in the park...are guys like Brayden Point going to run through the proverbial wall in *both* the regular season and playoffs?
  13. I would love to be a fly on the wall during the player exit interviews this year. During the past decade of futility you pretty much knew how they were going to go. This year? I’m not so sure...Dundon seems to me to be a “what have you done for me lately” kinda guy. If so I hope he can look past that and properly appreciate the amazing over achievements of this group. I’m tempted to then urge him to spend the necessary money (perhaps even to the cap) to get us over the top but on second thought how many examples have we seen of teams spending crazy money to absolutely no avail?
  14. Totally agree...as far as personnel decisions go I believe HCRB is already the GM...
  15. Do you guys think that Dundon and the rest of the management team will make the necessary financial moves in the off season to improve this team via free agency? Or will the mindset be “we spent next to nothing” and got to the ECFs?
