  1. Re: Peters resigns, search for a new coach is on

    Waddell is a puppet. He's only saying what he's been told to say. Of that you can be 100% certain.

    Not if he's going to keep trying to run that Bowman system. Our rosters is light years away from being able to do that.
  4. Re: Peters resigns, search for a new coach is on

    FWIW, Waddell said they will be running both searches at the same time. So ... not waiting for a GM to hire the coach.

    From what I'm reading and hearing and from reading between the lines, I do think Vellucci is pretty much 100% moving to Raleigh as soon as the Checkers are out of the playoffs. It's the capacity I'm...

    Maybe, but somewhere on the Canadian plains there's a forward with a similar skillset to Derek Ryan who will likely be on that blame list as well.

  9. Re: Peters resigns, search for a new coach is on

    Tell ya what. Peters will become a better coach if and when he learns not to be so bullheaded and to play to his team's strengths instead of sticking to his script. It's not impossible ... heck, Paul...

    Wow. The air feels fresher in Raleigh suddenly. I'm going to go downstairs and see if my water tastes better, but I suspect that it will.

    There's a difference between being a cheapskate and just not wanting to throw money away. Time will tell which kind of frugal our owner might be. There's not enough actual evidence yet to judge.

    I agree on that. Making the big play for a center with a few years under his belt and room to grow into the role instead of going the fossil route has a lot of appeal. You have to get the right guy,...

    And the fact that they've peeled a pretty impressive number of really good players to be able to fit those three guys under the Cap. As those three faded a bit, there's not much to pick up the slack.

    Which is why I didn't address Carter specifically, but rather opened up to the whole group of "franchise players." Getzlaf for example is a different kettle of fish.
