  1. I don't understand why we need help fast...this is a proper rebuild. It takes time. Think back to this time last year, we weren't expecting to be in the hunt for a playoff spot on March. This team did last year what we weren't expecting it to do until this upcoming season. We are ahead of schedule in Raleigh and that's a great thing but I just don't see the dire circumstances to win now. Additionally with our additions up front, and another year under our young Ds belt, how could someone not expect us to improve this year?...we finished something like 7 points out this year...3 wins and a OT loss, not a huge gap with how close NHL games can be. Look at where BP came from in Detroit. They had 1 50 point scorer last year and made the playoffs.
  2. What did we have last year because we were pretty close to the playoffs?...another year of progression for our young core, add in a 50 point guy, toss in TT who scored 30 points last year at 21, and we added size. What do you want? Should we have signed everybody available yesterday??? Not saying we win the Presidents Trophy but we are in a good spot. Certainly the best spot we've been in for years. Most importantly, we are set up nicely down the road where we can challenge to be a top level team!

  4. Seriously Blue Devil one account per person. You two are on the same page (not my page though)
  5. Blue Devil one account per person...
  6. Why even try to reason...you hooked me again...Big signings tend to back fire, we have a young core that is due for money soon. Big signings get butts in seats short term, building teams the right way fills seats for the long term. Trust the process.
  7. I like the situation for him. I could see him with a bounce backish year. 50 points?
  8. Eric 3 years $3.5 mil to Wild
  9. No. Just no. Management understands it takes SMART money to make money. Most signings today the experts are saying upfront will kick these teams down the road. Why buy into a bad contract when we will have a lot of young guys needing a nice pay day in a few years? Wait and get a 2nd or 3rd tier guy after the dust settles at a reasonable price.
  10. NHL Netword reported that Eric is requesting $6 mil x 4 years from teams to start negotiations.
  11. Looks like the Sabres are trying to move him, not sure if they'd want Murphy. Just spitballing. Reading they are about to sign Okposo, might make them lean more so toward trading Kane?
  12. Evander Kane for Murphy and a 2nd. Thoughts?
  13. Murphy only played 35 last season. You would have to play Murphy 35 games this year to reach 70 in 2 seasons. Idk about you but I don't quite call that a sure bet.For me it becomes, take care of this situation now and ensure Faulk won't have to be exposed. Too much comes into play to risk it. Injuries namely.
  14. It's pretty simple in my eyes. You have to expose a Dman with 40/70 and a contract through 2017-2018 Wiz A) didn't have a contract through 2017-2018 and B ) played 1 game last year so risked not meeting 40/70 depending on how this season goes. Hanifin, Pesce, Slavin are automatically protected. Hainsey doesn't have a contract through 2017-2018. Murphy won't have 40/70. That leaves Faulk. So we could expose Faulk or cut Wiz and bring in a UFA Dman that meets the expansion draft requirements (they will likely play a lot this year to help meet 40/70, so no go on the young guys right now). I wouldn't take this move as a sign that we are going shopping tomorrow. I will think we wait for a reasonable deal for a forward in a few weeks.
