  1. ^ This. I guess I’m in the minority but I’m not as keen on moving Faulk as others. Most people talk about our defensive strength, last year Faulk was a big part of that. The criticism directed at him before was well deserved, but he was very good last year, not just ok. I think it’s assuming a lot that one of these unproven players are just going to replace Faulk in the top 4. Like I said before we have a young, strong defensive corps. I’m not sure why people are so eager to change it up. There will be a battle for DeHaan’s old spot, and I’m not sure I’m comfortable with a battle for 2 spots (a third of our starting defense), especially when one is a top 4 position. Also, if we trade Faulk what are we getting in return? More picks and/or prospects? No thanks. We could trade him for a forward but that hasn’t worked so far and there might not be any seats left at the table as it is. Based on last year’s play the only way I trade Faulk is if he makes it crystal clear this is his last year in Carolina.
  2. My money is on goalie coach.
  3. RALEIGH, NC - Tom Dundon, Chief Executive Officer, Owner and Governor of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced the team has re-signed President and General Manager Don Waddell to a multi-year contract extension. "Don's leadership and experience are invaluable to our organization and I'm happy we were able reach an extension,"said Dundon. "Don and I have a great relationship and he is someone I trust. I'm excited to continue to build a championship team with Don." "I'm thrilled to sign an extension with the Hurricanes and I look forward to continuing the success we experienced last season," said Waddell. "We have a first-class organization, a great fanbase and a team we feel is built to contend for the Stanley Cup. My family and I are excited to stay in Raleigh for years to come." Waddell, 60, was named interim general manager on March 17, 2018, and was officially named the ninth general manager in franchise history on May 8, 2018. He originally joined the franchise on July 1, 2014, when he was named President of Gale Force Sports & Entertainment. Last year, in his first season as general manager, Waddell helped the Hurricanes reach the playoffs for the first time in 10 years as the team reached the Eastern Conference Final. In addition, Waddell was named one of three finalists for the 2018-19 NHL General Manager of the Year Award. Waddell previously served as the general manager of the Atlanta Thrashers from 1998-2010 and then as the president of the Thrashers in 2010-11. Prior to joining the Thrashers, Waddell won a Stanley Cup as an assistant general manager of the Detroit Red Wings in 1997-98. The Detroit, Mich., native also served as general manager for USA Hockey at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games and the 2001, 2002 and 2005 IIHF World Championships.
  4. Waddell signed to multi-year extension. Now we can put that to rest.
  5. Hunter Shinkaruk. Former first round pick in 2013. There was some hype around him when he was drafted. To say it hasn’t worked out would be an understatement.
  6. https://www.canescountry.com/platform/amp/2019/8/7/20758093/carolina-hurricanes-justin-williams-retirement-captain-justin-faulk-jordan-staal-rod-brindamour Just a test. Thanks Legend-1. The NHL articles don’t have a blue link to copy (holding your finger down does nothing), but I’m just using the app. I could probably do a search and find a link. Thanks again, I’ll try linking in the future.
  7. Thanks Lake. Sorry, I don’t know how to post links from a phone. I’m old.
  8. I was wondering when we would hear from him. NHL.com just put up an article about Haula, and how he sees similarities between Canes and Vegas. .
  9. There is an article on NHL.com titled: Waddell ‘not going anywhere’ as Hurricanes GM, owner says. It gives a little more insight into the whole thing. Dundon just does things differently, and I’m not worried about it. From what I understand Minnesota is speaking with a lot of different potential GM’s, including a guy like Chiarelli. It has been noted that Minnesota likely has no intention of hiring him, but they are trying to get as much input/different perspectives as possible. Just goes to show how listless the Wild are right now, which is the usual result when the owner, GM, and others all have differing opinions about where the team is heading.
  10. “......and one for you!” ”I need TP for my bung.......”
  11. Just my 2 cents: I don’t think anyone is going anywhere. I think we like the team we have assembled and will find a way to make it work. I think this is much ado about nothing. JW will return (or not) and off we go. The one exception may be Reimer if we can find a taker, but I doubt it. Also, if JW is returning to take another run at this thing, I’m pretty sure that he (like I do) hopes that Staal and Faulk are part of it. I’m sure he wants all hands on deck, especially proven NHL veterans.
  12. HA! I knew it. 😛 Sorry top, I couldn’t resist. Have a great weekend.
  13. Just watched a video rating the prospect pools. Guess who is #1. Other teams had higher-end prospects, but nobody can match our depth was the emphasis. Some of the players from this year’s draft were listed. Looking at the comments section it seems that Montreal and the Rangers are among the best as well.
  14. He’s looking for a 2 year deal at 4.0 million per season, that’s a lot for a guy that has never played an NHL game. I know he was the leading scorer in the KHL, but it is high risk IMO, although the reward could also be high. I don’t think we will be moving salary from a proven player for an unproven player, and Vegas can’t take on salary as it is (which is why they can’t sign Gusev).
  15. Anisimov traded to Ottawa for Zack Smith. Salary move for the Hawks.
