We should have got Paul Martin in the Jordan Staal deal like everyone said we would.

Also we need to pull out of the Nash sweepstakes, there is no need to trade away any more of our valuable players.

Sign a good winger in P.A. Parenteau, a good center in Kyle Wellwood, and a good defenseman in Dennis Wideman and we will be contending next year.

Agree with this the more I think about it.

I don't know if we can get Wideman. I've heard he wants to stay with Washington or go to a contender.

Alexander Semin is reportedly going to test free agency when he becomes an UFA in July. His production has tailed off a bit, but a change of scenery may do him some good.

Semin or P.A would be the two wingers that I want and I heard that Wellwood wants out of Winnipeg so I would throw a contract offer his way.

If we could get Wellwood for a similar price that Winnipeg got him for last year, I'd consider it.

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

Don't think so, haven't heard anything on that front yet.

I spoke to soon.

Chip Alexander tweeted today

Chip Alexander ‏@ice_chip
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
