Ive been too irritated to even come to this board. Put all the chips on parise and suter who have said no to Carolina all the while missing out on other great free agents. Shooting for the stars is great but if you don't think your gonna get them get the next best thing....frustrated...

J.R. said we had a backup plan, but that was more of just lip service

He keeps thinking that he can get Nash to agree to a trade (and sign extension) if he can talk to him, but Columbus won't even grant the Canes permission to talk to Nash; so submitting and then re-submitting offers to the Blue Jackets does the Canes no good as players like Jiri Hudler, P.A. Parrenteau, and Ray Whitney keep signing lucrative deals and putting teams into playoff contention while the Canes continue to tread water at the nine to twelve range.

On top of that, the Canes decided to bring back a guy in Joe Corvo who they got rid of twice; instead of re-signing one of our best defense-man in Bryan Allen or forking over a little cash for Jason Garrison, Sami Salo, or Filip Kuba.

I'm not happy at all with the way this off-season has gone.

The Jordan Staal did wonders for our top six, but after are top six; we are straight garbage.

I guess I can be excited that we re-signed the Checkers captain: Brett Sutter, and Cam Ward's back-up: Justin Peters.

Thanks for nothing JR.

We will not make the playoffs next season. We will be a bottom feeding team yet again. Bank on it. F**k JR.

That's got nothing to do with JR, its got to do with Peter karmanos. The owner of the Hurricanes not willing to use a signing bonus to grab those players. They did just spend a whole lot on Jordan Staal, it's not they aren't trying to acquire players. People need to stop being so dramatic and silly over this, JR is doing what he can on the team's budget.

Time for you over-dramatic, over-analyzing fans to go into full meltdown mode. Suter AND Parise are going to Minnesota. JR extended Jordan so we'd have enough money to accommodate at least one. It's not his fault they preferred another destination over Raleigh.

Get Nash without giving up Faulk or Skinner and I'll be happy.

Parise was a def no after the Staal trade. I was rooting for Schultz, but knew we maybe had a 5% shot.

Semin would still be a great pickup. Yeah, our D will still be a handful for Ward and Peters, but our already good offense will be elite IMO.

Semin is a no for the Canes, Chip Alexander already said that the Canes have no interest. It has something to do with him being a lazy Russian bastard lol.

The names Tracy and Alexander keep throwing out there are Wellwood and Nash.

Sign Wellwood and trade Jokinen, McBain, Murphy, 2013 1st for Nash

Nash - J. Staal - E. Staal

Skinner - Wellwood - Tlusty

LaRose - Welsh - Ruutu

Nodl - Brent - Dwyer

Stewart

Gleason - Faulk

Corvo - Harrison

Sanguinetti - Pitkanen

Also, congrats to the Wild; huge day for their franchise.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Cullen back in Canes uniform next year because the Wild are going to have to make a trade to shed some salary.

J.R. is all over acquiring players that he let go years ago.

CanesVision retweeted a tweet that reported that the Hurricanes have been added to Nash's approved list.

Take that for what it's worth, because that same twitter account said that Carle was signing with Detroit by noon today and now Carle is closing in on signing with Tampa Bay.

If Nash has added the Canes to his approved list, I expect he will end up here.
