  1. Just uploaded this to youtube. Canadian broadcast of Game 7. Audio of the crowd noise is way better than NBCs broadcast. Plus its interesting to hear the Canadian commentary.

    NHL Draft 2018

    No problem. I don't but I do read the board often.

    NHL Draft 2018

    First day of Camp Necas looks for real. Guy has put on at least 15 lbs. had the most highlight plays. Is easily a top 9 forward. Svech looks the part. Great skater and passer. Seems to have a good presence with Necas. Also saw him joking with Fox. Bean looks like the real deal. Great skater and bigger than I expected. Should see some time in NHL next year. Fox looks like the real deal. Great skater. Not ready for this year but could play in the NHL next year. A tad small.

    NHL Draft 2018

    Looking at the roster now my guess on lineup is TT Aho Zykov skinner Stall. Svechnikov williams. Necas. Ferland martinook. Rask. McGinn possibles: PDG, Foegle, Kuokkanen, Roy, Saarela, Gauthier, Maenalanen Slavin. Pesce Fleury. Hamilton TVR. Faulk Possibilities: Bean, Fora, McKeown Darling. FA possibilities: Nedeljkovic So, the center position is a series weakness. Necas might not be ready for the NHL and/or playing center. Plus if anyone gets hurt, the next option is probably Roy, Saarela, or Kuokkanen. All have minimal NHL experience. We are going to have to address this through a trade or FA. I’m not as concerned about the wings. We have a lot of organizational depth here. As for the defense, if we keep TVR and Faulk we will probably be fine, but if we don’t keep one or both then we will have to address it. Goalies, we need a FA or get one through a trade. Looking forward to the developmental camp this week. Would like to see if Bean and Necas have developed since last year.

    NHL Draft 2018

    He did say that he's going to talk to an additional 2-3 teams. So, there is a chance however unlikely. We do need a 1-2 line center badly. Those don't come cheaply. If Tavares was at least partially interested, I'd throw 10 million at him. He would significantly upgrade the roster. ROR is another possibility and would be a lot cheaper. As for D-men, we can keep Hamilton, Peace, and Faulk on the right side. Left side isn't as easy. I doubt Bean will be ready for this year. So we have Slavin and Fleury. TVR is the wildcard. If he resigns and we keep Faulk then he may need to play on his off side. The goalie UFA market isn't awesome. I say throw a 3 year contract at the Blues backup, try to trade the big man or send him to Charlotte, sign Cam to a team friendly short term deal, and pray Ned is ready in a year or two to make the transition.

    NHL Draft 2018

    Hanifin and Lindholm trades to Calgary. Canes get Dougie Hamilton, Ferland, and Fox. Hamilton is a sure fire 1st pairing defenseman and is an upgrade over Hanifin. Ferland is a 20 goal scorer and reminds me of Ruutu. Fox is a defenseman prospect who is playing for Harvard next year but wasn’t likely to sign with Calgary. Hear he’s a good prospect and could play in the pros in year or two. Seems like an even trade. If Fox signs with us then it’s a win for us. Hate to see Both go but they didn’t want to sign their RFA contracts. Don’t see them improving much since they will again be in Peter’s system.

    First round has been pretty boring. Although I’ll take it as long as we have Svechnikov.

    NHL Draft 2018

    We agree. I think a 5 million dollar contract would be about right. After the Rask contract, the Canes are kind of stuck on contract negotiations. He’s worth much more than Rask. However, I don’t think he’s worth more than 5.1. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.

    NHL Draft 2018

    I'm hoping not. I think Lindholm has a decent chance at progressing to a solid two-way 2nd line center. He's a RFA and asking for more than 5 million a year. Hopefully, this is just a negotiating ploy by his agent.

    NHL Draft 2018

    The draft is today and we have the second overall pick. Please let it be Svechnikov. Hoping to see some trades as well. Skinner, Faulk, Lindholm, and Hanifin have been rumored to be in play. I'm thinking Skinner and Faulk are likely gone, but maybe not tonight.

    UNC Academic Scandal

    Wow. This level of arrogance is why fans of other teams (especially Duke and State) have a deep seated hatred for UNC and their fans. Let's put this straight. Duke, UNC, and State are very good universities. Each school does something better than the other universities. If anyone gets a degree from these universities, they should be proud of it. Putting down the other universities doesn't make you superior, it makes you sound like a little child. As for athletics, make no mistake about it, State got decimated by the NCAA and they haven't yet recovered. Their fans have a right to be more than a little irritated. They were found guilty of players selling their shoes and tickets and the NCAA slapped them with a LOIC. Now, UNC has been suspected (not convicted or proven) of substantially more serious violations. The NCAA has so far not even ivestigated the matter. It does look from an outsiders prospective that there is a double standard. A rational UNC fan would say that I've looked at the claims that have been made against UNC and while there is reason for suspicion, I haven't seen enough to sway me against the university that I love. However, if they do turn out to be true, I will retract my opinion and accept the punishment that we are given. Why don't UNC fans start changing the general outside prospective that they are a bunch of entitled, arrogant *ssholes and show some humility for once.
