Edit, I'm just going to stop following this mess. Way too much mis information in the media right now.

Hurricanes are out on all three fronts though, at least that's what it seems.

24 million up front in signing bonuses that the Canes can't afford on top of 100 million over 10 years is what put them out of the running.

JR said the Canes are out of the Parise sweepstakes because they would not include a huge bonus.

They expect an answer from Suter by Monday

Finally, they are still in the running to acquire Nash from Columbus but unfortunately we aren't on Nash's short list of teams so it is unlikely that he would re-sign with us anyway.

To recap today, we signed Joe Corvo, re-signed Jordan Staal, re-signed Brett Sutter, and re-signed Justin Peters.

Nash has a NTC, he can block any trade he wants to. He's already blocked a few of them so far. Must not want out of CLB that bad.

I read that Carolina thinks they can get him from them, but that he won't sing an extension in the long run.

Just went to double check and he does have a no movement clause, so he would have to approve the trade. I just don't see him doing that for a place he doesn't want to sign long term for. I also can't see Carolina giving up what it would take to get him with out an extension in the works.

I don't think the Canes like semin that much, they might look at going for Ryan or some one similar to him via trade.

Nvm, the press conference was just to say that he hasn't made a decision yet.

I guess of right now, are depth chart looks like the following

Tlusty - Staal - Staal

Skinner - Jokinen - Ruutu

Nodl - Welsh - LaRose

Stewart - Brent - Dwyer

Gleason - Corvo

Pitkanen - Faulk

Harrison - McBain

Ward

Peters

Not exactly playoff worthy to say the least, so hopefully we can acquire a few fore pieces.

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...
