    I think you just summarized why Mrazek isn't signed right now. Waddell clearly sees things similarly ... and I don't blame either of you :0)

    Perry is a better power play presence, and is younger. Again, it all hinges on his health and mobility. Otherwise, very similar situations. But if Williams decides to hang 'em up, this wouldn't be...

    They pretty much had to do that. Nobody was going to take on his last couple of years at a cap hit of $8 mil. That said, if Perry can get his legs back and still wants to play, he's still useful....

    I mean ... that list is Bob, Lehner, Varlamov and some other guys. Let's be honest. Lehner's a step up over Mrazek and Varlamov might be as well ... probably more like the same, but older. But that's...

    At the deadline I used Jordan Staal as a comparable for Hayes, and he's making $6 million a year ... and most fans think HE'S over-paid.

    So, this is the lace anniversary of the Canes Stanley Cup win. Soon it will be old enough to vote.

    Actually I think Andy brought up a good example of a thing to avoid. Mike Smith's career path has been all over the place, kind of similar to Mrazek's. And Calgary paid him over $5.5 million this...

    Here's the thing ... maybe the Canes are willing pay somebody else more money, or at least risk doing so, simply because they think the guy is a better keeper. Or alternately, they're willing to go...

    Rutherford gives Faulk a NMC all day every day ... I seriously doubt that Waddell does though.

    One thing to note on Faulk ... he is perhaps the ultimate in expansion draft protection. He's that rare combination of a guy who doesn't out and out suck, but at the same time a veteran player you...

    I like Henrique a lot. He'd fit the system here nicely, but since he's signed through 2023-24 and we already have a similar player in terms of production signed long term (Staal), I'm not sure...

    Yup. In order to make Lloyd a starter, you'd have to change everything about the approach. She can't play the isolated striker role that the other forwards excel at, and she can't play wing ......

    OK ... thinking medium ranger depth here, we need scoring, centers and a goaltender. You NEVER say no to a good value in the first round though, and I'm fairly sure Dundon is pragmatic enough not to...
