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...

Any chance we go after Schultz?

I spoke to soon.

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

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

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

Chip Alexander [email protected]_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.

    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.  
    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
