    Might be tempted to purchase a jersey from them, but which name? Guess I need to wait and see who of our group lines up with them?


    Just saw Patrick Brown and Zykov are with them? Wonder how that'll play out for our guys, although I'd guess there'd not be resentment to whomever player, but more so at the organization that "dumped" them?



    They're both Vegas property, aren't they?  I expect they'll move on to Henderson.

    Greenville still formally affiliated with both the Canes and Chex according to their twitter account and the official NHL records page. Neither the Wolves nor Panthers list an official ECHL affiliation. I know several NHL teams share ECHL relationships so I'm sure this is nothing new. But I could see it possibly getting a bit convoluted if different entities concurrently want their goalies to get ECHL ice time.  Can't see it being much of an issue for skaters.



    Greenville didn't claim the Chex last season - curious why they would this.

    Francis  never had a fair shake at being gm .



    I fully believe that Francis lost the job when TD came in and gave him the go-ahead to make the team better immediately and Francis proceeded to sit on his hands and preach patience, which is the last thing TD wanted.  Therefore i think Francis totally had a fair shake but blew it.  Learning experience.  Now with a clean slate he can put together the team he wants from scratch, and i do wish him well.  But i do think he had enough control over his situation that had he just made a trade, he may still be here.  In 4 years as GM he didn't make a single player-for-player trade because he was apparently insistent on 'winning' any trade he made and in concentrating on winning the battle, he lost the war.

    according to the Wolves' leadership there not be any changes to the Wolves, uniforms, colors, etc.



    I'll be bummed out big time if the Wolves change their look over this.  They've kept the same look for over 25 years through 2 leagues and multiple parent affiliations, as well as a number of years as an independent.  I hate it enough already when they do their putrid 3rd jerseys.  The jersey i'm wearing in my pic - that's all they need.  And the white version i guess, if they have to...

    the fandom in Charlotte is minimal and so is the impact on the bottom line.



    Honestly this is what i see as well, if you're meaning 'Canes fandom'.  The Chex have fans, but i really think as many of them disliked the Canes as liked them.  There might be other areas where this severance will affect things negatively, but i don't think it'll be due to losing a bunch of 'dual' fans.

  6. I haven't been keeping up with the draft prospects at all but if Askarov is the real deal and is available at 13OA, man, take him.  Our prospect pool is looking good and we have a decent number of mid-20s-core-players who will become veterans over the next few years.  I mean if the impossible happens and Lafreniere is still sitting there available (he won't be) then of course you take him, but G is the one position that can turn a contender into a champion and the one position i feel the Canes have struggled with.

    Toronto fans at it again, or is this a repeat? One is proposing a trade Anderson and Nylander for our 1st, Hamilton and either Jake Bean or Bokk? How condescending but typical? 



    I wouldn't take Anderson/Nylander for our 1st or Hamilton, much less both.  And even mucher less with sweetener on top of that.

    Whuuutt?  Really?  3 guys we were all excited about a year ago for a  #15 pick that has a small chance of ever making the NHL?   and than Brady Skeji too now?  So basically get rid of any new arrivals in the last season and a half? 



    You feel this draft is so shallow that the #15 overall has a "small chance of ever making the NHL"?

    Wonder why it would change again from the Chicago Wolves wasn't it? Another COVID victim? Honestly, I thought moving away from Charlotte lacked foresight?



    May have been negotiation by threat.  I've tried to keep my eyes open but i haven't seen anything from the Hurricanes, Checkers, Wolves, or Panthers on the subject since that week back in February or whenever it was that the news supposedly broke.  Hoping the 'soon make announcement' truly does come soon.  I mean it kind of has to by this point, yes?

  10. Perhaps not the best-case scenario for the Rags to get the top pick, but i'd way rather they get it than Rutherfart.  Enjoying watching the Pens slowly sink.  Swept in the first round of the playoffs last year, 'missed' the playoffs this year.  If they're going to get the top pick let's make them earn it, yes?
