2012 NHL Offseason/Free Agency

Recommended Posts



In my opinion, this would be a contending team

Eric Staal - Jordan Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Kyle Wellwood - Tuomo Ruutu

Jussi Jokinen - Jeremy Welsh - Jiri Tlusty

Anthony Stewart - Tim Brent - Chad LaRose

Patrick Dwyer

Gleason - Faulk

Murphy - Harrison

Pitkanen - McBain

Joslin

Cam Ward

Brian Boucher

Also in the mix: Andreas Nodl, Drayson Bowman, Jerome Samson, Brett Sutter, Zac Dalpe, Zach Boychuk, Riley Nash, Bobby Sanguinetti, Victor Rask, and Justin Peters.

Do you not think we'll split the Staals up and put them together for power plays?

JR hinted that we will put them together if we can acquire another second line center and a winger.

Nice. I'm glad Rutherford is willing to go after good players in free agency. Our division is so close that a few additional players could make a world of difference next season. We could easily go from last in the division to top 2.

I'm not sure how reliable this is, but the Fourth Period listed the top 30 free agents and those interested in them. They had the Canes interested in...

Zach Parise

Ryan Suter

P.A. Parenteau

Jiri Hudler

Carlo Colaiacovo

Any chance we go after Schultz?

I spoke to soon.

Chip Alexander tweeted today

One man's opinion: Canes have interest in Justin Schultz, Jason Garrison. Also will make offer for Ryan Suter come July 1

Chip Alexander ‏@ice_chip

One man's opinion: Parise will be out of Canes' price range. Possible interest in bringing back Whitney

Johnnyg Hockey ‏@JohnnygHockey

@ice_chip some rumors have #Canes still in Nash talks, what is your opinion on that?

Chip Alexander ‏@ice_chip

@JohnnygHockey Some truth to that, IMO

I'd be ecstatic with a Schultz/Suter/Whitney FA land. One can dream, right?

My only problem with Whitney is that he so old. I would rather have PAP, but at least it is showing that JR is willing to break the bank to make this team a contender again.

The team is still going hard after a trade for Nash.

However if they make the Nash trade, lots of people going to be upset at what it's going to take to land him.

They'll make the push for Suter and a couple of second tier FA's to go along with him and probably end up with Nash.

Just don't give up any good players please! We can't improve if we gain talent from elsewhere only to give up talent we already have.

Couple of wingers and a prospect or two is what it will take to accomplish that trade.

They'd have to give up a couple of good prospects in Murphy and Dalpe or something similar. I think Murphy would be the focal point on what was going back.

Probably end up being the 2013 first rounder, Murphy, Dalpe, McBain and one of the top wingers on the team to get Nash.
