Eh, we do this every year, it's expected. But at least it feels like this year we have momentum and something to look forward to provided we take these next steps:

Fire Marcoux and promote CuJo (or anyone else for that matter, just get rid of Marcoux).

Get a new goalie.

Drop some $$ or draft pics and prospects on a #1 C. Granted, I'd rather just overpay since we have the cap space anywhere. Need Karmanos to open up the wallet.

As long as the young guys continue to play like they are, we'll be the playoffs next year

Since the Stanley Cup win in '06, we've made the playoffs once or twice in a league where half the league makes it into the playoffs every year?

If it makes you feel better, Edmonton hasn't made the playoffs since they lost to us in the Stanley Cup Finals until this year (praise be Connor McDavid)

I wish they'd put something back on the shoulders, but it looks good to see the warning flags back on there across the bottom.

It's not so hidden at this point. We have a lot of picks and will be trying to deal them for roster ready players.

Better article

Keeping Stempy for a 5th rounder is fantastic.

"It’s worth pointing out that this can be considered part of a bigger deal involving the expansion draft, with the Canes retaining Lee Stempniak and picking up van Riemsdyk and a 7th-rounder in exchange for 2nd and 5th round picks plus Connor Brickley."

We have no idea about scouting this year's class so instead of a dartboard, this guy's name is an anagram for canes and we took him

Actually, I think I have some faith in our scouting/development these days,. Though I know nothing about this guy

I am fine with the pick. Top 5 Euro player, high hockey IQ, good skillset with decent size. Not much to dislike IMO. That being said, I wish we could have gotten a deal done for a top 6 forward that could immediately contribute.

I guess this means we're not trading for that #1C. That said, I'm not complaining.

I am a fan of this trade. He played on the INTL teams with Lindholm, Rask and Dahlbeck along with Teravainen, Darling, Nordstrom and Van Riemsdyk.

Been a while since I have been on TWW, and I am sure you guys have loved my silence. Just a few thoughts and questions no order of importance:

1 - Have we re-upped Stemniak?
2 - It's pretty obvious we are Chicago South... but does it actually matter without Kane or Toews? They passed us by with Matthews and McD
3 - I like Darling
4 - It seems the Duchene move is off the table... any thoughts on moving Hanifin/Fleury/Bean/combo/etc for Marner/Nylander/combo/etc?
5 - Unlikely to happen, but what about Jagr for a year? Teach youth how to be pro/trade at deadline if we are out/ etc.
6 - On the unis... They put black on the bottom of everything except the pants... well.. and the helmet... black on the pants would've been nice
7 - Finally, I thought this was a good draft for us

The literal headline of the above linked article:

"Hurricanes close to sale; team would stay in Raleigh"


Sounds like a condition of the deal

right, and that type of language is used often, but is never absolute. Sure the agreement says the team will remain in raleigh, but there will be a time limitation to that restriction. And I'd bet it's not really long-term.

The lease goes until '24. Plenty of time to turn things around.

The NHL won't let the canes leave Raleigh anytime soon. Homeboy tried to move them this year and they told him no.

I don't think this statement is accurate, regardless of the identity of "homeboy".

Quote :
"Interviews with people close to Greenberg and others who have knowledge of the proposed purchase but requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the talks paint a picture of a front man who would be deeply concerned with the fan experience and revitalizing Raleigh as a hockey market, but lacking the money to fund the purchase himself and reliant on a group of investors to get the deal done.

If the deal goes through, at a reported price of $500 million that likely includes a large amount of assumed debt while valuing the actual franchise closer to $300 million, Greenberg would move to Raleigh with the intention of making the team work here. That’s what Hurricanes fans long afraid of a move to Quebec City or Seattle during these years of ownership uncertainty as Karmanos has had the team on the market have been hoping to hear.

“Pete Karmanos loves hockey and the science and strategy of hockey and we’ll forever be indebted to him for bringing NHL hockey to North Carolina,” said former Hurricanes president Jim Cain, a Raleigh lawyer who worked with Greenberg on the Atlanta deal. “Chuck, though, loves sports. He loves what sports can do for a community, for a city, for a region. That’s a different personality in an owner. I’m not saying Chuck doesn’t love hockey. He does. He’s not the hockey purist Karmanos is. Chuck doesn’t aspire to be in the Hockey Hall of Fame. That’s Pete.”

Greenberg, 56, a Pittsburgh native, was working as a lawyer there when the Penguins were in danger of moving in the late ’90s. He helped push through the sale of the bankrupt team to Lemieux that not only kept the team in town but set the stage for a new arena and the team’s current dynasty. Among the people Greenberg met then, through Lemieux: current Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis, who arrived in Pittsburgh in 1991 in a controversial trade from the Hartford Whalers.

That set Greenberg down a new path: Getting on the other side of the table."
