  1. I was too to begin with but the idea of 2 Whalers games a year isnt bad. Besides with the Black jerseys we already have a very cool Alt. The only thing I would change if I had a say would be a 2nd logo jersey and I would go with the logo idea.
  2. Yeah he played tough and gritty. Hes young and should still get better.
  3. Truthfully i never bought the Skinner didnt play D argument anyway. Sure he didn't play in our D zone which was what Roddy wants, and I'm fine with him being moved. But if I'm not mistaken he was in the top 5 in takeaways the year before the trade. He played D he just did it in thr neutral and O zones. Again he wasn't a fit here but he wasn't a headache, he wasn't a bad player, and he wasn't traded because he was a flop. He was traded because he didn't fit the scheme, this and nothing else. The only bad thing is unlike most of the moves the committee made we did not get value out of it.
  4. Vegas owner is making it sound like having a season at all might be a long shot. Says the league is gate revenue based and without 50% capacity and border crossing the season would cost teams to much to run
  5. He wasn't that bad just didn't have a place on a team with a stcked blue line
  6. TVR was solid in the playoff series against the Caps before injury,, and also solid during the regular season but completely disposable with the other talent this team had on D and that was before the emergence of Fluery. I wouldn't call him a "bottom feeder" that implies to me he's not good, but he is a bottom 2 D man and the Canes blue line is full of top 4 D men
  7. I am sad to see him go and I also watch game on TV. However I watch the games and while John is the best PbP guy there is and was great I am more interested in the on ice product then who is doing the talking. I live in the Caps viewing area and while I dislike it I watch the Caps announcers, when the Canes play them. I will damn sure watch Mike and Tripp.
  8. No doubt the Met is the single best division in the NHL now
  9. Not sure why you feel that way unless you are just predisposed to feel bad. Minor league clubs change affiliation all the time, not just in the NHL but in MLB also. Seems like a year to year basis. In fact as stated the Wolves were the Blues minor club. Then they shared one season with the Knights. The Avs minor club was San Antonio but they changed to a Colorado based team while Vegas bought the San Antonio team and moved them. In gavt San Antonio has been the affiliated of 6 NHL clubs in the last 15 years. Changing your affiliate has little to do with moving the parent club
  10. His ask would have been much higher with a full season. I dont see him asking for huge contract for that and again he was an outcast in Boston and was never accepted in Calgary. When named first star during a game the crowds reaction almost made him break down. I think he thinks he's found a home and while he wants to make money I don't think he will squeeze the Canes for money
  11. What makes you think Dougie is going to play hard ball? He had a good season going and got injured, that doesn't really raise your price a ton. Also as has been mentioned he has been shipped out of 2 other places because he couldnt fit in, he gets here and slips in like a glove. I feel he wants to be here and due to injury doesnt really have room to ask for the stars
  12. Yup rather move forward with Petr and Riems with Dougie then get rid of Dougie
  13. The goalies we have are not top tier goalies, but they are not bad and are not the reason we are no longer playing. If there is a clear upgrade for a reasonable price by all means go for it but we have bigger fish to fry in order to improve the team.
  14. I don't go fishing for some top tier trade. The way this team is configured right now with the skaters we are a play off team year in year out. So if something jumps out at us for a top tier goalie I would listen, but I wouldn't be making the calls. Reason being we all know that we have had solid goalies the last 2 years and solid goalies can get hot in the playoffs and bring home a cup, Cam Ward did. So let's not dump the consistent skaters we have on the prayer we get a too notch goalie. Keep churning the bottom forwards and D with the top guys in the minors getting shuffled until we come across the right goalie at either the right FA price or the right trade price
