    Re: LEADERSHIP

    Here is some analysis done by TSN on Eric Staal. It shows he is still an impact type player but in a period of decline. The most surprising (or maybe least as we watch him) thing is the huge drop in...

    Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Prospects and Cherkers Thread

    One thing to remember about the new NHL lottery.....most teams have a much better chance at 1st pick. Even if you are the worst team in the league you only have a 20% chance at McDavid......which...

    Just crazy and torturous to think about. Can you imagine the excitement, skill and buzz he would bring to the organization? It would be a franchise altering moment.

    Re: LEADERSHIP

    If Pittsburgh flames out again this year, look for them to be in the bidding as well. There have been rumors of a Crosby/Babcock pairing for a while now due to Olympic successes. Anyway you look at...

    Re: LEADERSHIP

    Staal is closing in on 30 in the next couple of days. Anyone that expects his work ethic or leadership style (or abilities) to substantially change is only fooling themselves. It isn't going to...
  6. Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Miscellaneous League News and Discussions

    I was being 100% sarcastic. I think he is a terrible captain and his best years are behind him as a player.

    As others have correctly pointed out, on the national stage he is still viewed as an...
  7. Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Miscellaneous League News and Discussions

    I think the problem with Edmonton is that other than Hall, the young hotshots they have aren't really that special. Sure their defense stinks but they aren't really that prolific at scoring...

    Re: The Chantel Thread

    Does anyone know if Chanel's "suspension" is paid or unpaid? I always wonder what type of punishment temporary paid suspensions are. Hell, I would love a paid 30 day break from my job.

    Re: GDT: Slugs @ Canes 10/14 7:30

    Not sure it is misplaced frustration. Statistically speaking, he has been a far below average NHL goalie for a couple years yet remains one of the higher paid goalies. Last year he was brutal and...
  10. Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Miscellaneous League News and Discussions

    I honestly think he could put up a 90 point season again in Toronto playing with Kessell....and I would be happy for him. I don't think he has a 90 point season (or even 80 left in Carolina) and he...
  11. Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Miscellaneous League News and Discussions

    If they get to choose between Kadri or Bozak (I take Kadri), Toronto's 1st this year, and Jake Gardiner, Carolina should jump at this deal. It makes Carolina a deeper team right now with some...

    Plus he was with his AHL teammates.... I am sure he was just confused.

    We should just rename this thread to Hurricanes Roster.....there isn't much different to start this season outside of the Canes having one real NHL line (Lindholm, Semin, Tlusty) and one set of NHL...

    Re: GDT: Canes @ Islanders 10/11 7:00

    Obviously Francis isn't going to be able to do all that but at some point the organization needs to show a long term plan and stop worrying about every individual year in a vacuum....which seems to...

    Re: GDT: Canes @ Islanders 10/11 7:00

    I hope Staal ends up being ok and it is nothing serious. Got to keep him healthy for trade value! Toronto fans are already in full panic mode so just something to keep in mind!

    I am enjoying your lone positivity on these boards. Recently every time I have read your posts I hear this in the background as you aren't all doom and gloom.

    Well Pronger was hired......glad to see I am not only one dumbfounded by the decision. The NHL is clueless at times.......

  19. Re: It's Time: 2014-15 NHL Eastern Conference Predictions

    I am going a little different here as well.

    - I see flashback to a couple years ago and expect Crosby, Ovechkin, and Stamkos put on an epic battle for the scoring title this year
    - I like the...
  20. Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Miscellaneous League News and Discussions

    You are right about the salary but his Cap hit remains at close to $5M per year for the next three years. If he retires, then I think Philly can't hide the money on the LTIR so they have to absorb...
  21. Sticky: Re: 2014-15 Miscellaneous League News and Discussions

    I hope this doesn't happen. Pronger is still getting paid $~5M/year by Philly for the next THREE years. Aren't there some guys out there that need a job and are just as qualified.....that aren't...

    That thinking doesn't really get the Canes anywhere other than known as cheapshot artists and in the penalty box. The one thing I have come to hate about the NHL is the need to answer clean hits or...

    There is NO realistic trade he can make right now that make THIS team a Stanley cup contender. The fans are pretty much already gone due to the previous 5 years so Francis better hold onto picks and...

    I hope the Canes sit him for awhile as he is too valuable to try and rush back to the roster. Gotta feel for the kid that he keeps getting knocked in head this much. Averaging a concussion a year for...
