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


When? I don't see it.

My bad, it's a guy that works for CanesVision that retweeted it, JohnneyHockey; the official CanesVision twitter account replied to JohnneyHockey saying "amen"

I have only seen people say they think we may be added.

Other news dadonov is headed to KHL. Not the greatest news...

Like I said, take it worth a grain of salt.

Alsom I was really high ad Dadonov, I believe we will still hold his rights; but this is a significant blow for the Charlotte franchise after losing Osala last year and Murphy and Dadonov this year.

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


I know this lacks depth, but that is one heck of a first line that you can build around for years to come.

The Dispatch today confirmed that the Pittsburgh Penguins are on Nash's approved list and have been from the start. The list, then, as we know it: Detroit, New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Jose.
This is the same list Nash presented the Blue Jackets last winter, but there have been hints lately of a willingness on Nash's part to expand it, perhaps for Carolina.


More people thinking Nash will add Carolina to his approved list. If he does, we will make a big run at him.

If Nash adds us to the list, he is coming here; there is no doubt about it in my mind.

People on hockeysfuturue and hfboards seem to think that the Canes have presented the best offer to Columbus but since we haven't been added to his approved list yet, no deal has been made.

So in reality, Columbus is just waiting until Nash adds the Hurricanes to the approved list so they can get the deal done.

My guess would be Jokinen, McBain, Murphy, and a 2013 1st (You could possibly switch out McBain or Murphy for Rask).

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that the Canes are likely to become the first team added to Nash's approved list.

The Hurricanes just pulled out of the Nash sweepstakes, CBJ were asking for Skinner; Carolina walked.

J.R. just mentioned Semin and Doan as possibilities.

Trip Tracy has mentioned Wellwood, Mueller, and Fehr.

Either we signed Wellwood or Trip Tracy has a man crush on him.

He has three tweets about Wellwood in the last hour.

Trip Tracy tweeted that the Canes may wait until the new CBA is shelled out because it will require some teams to cut players to get under the salary cap.

I love CBSSports.com's commentary on the Nash story...

Set your sights on the stars, right Howson? There is a reason why people have never made it to the stars -- well, besides the fact that they are really freakin' hot. But the proverbial ones, they're too often unattainable. I mean, asking for Skinner and presumably more in return for Nash with a straight face? Assuming Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford remained on the phone long enough, I'm sure he heard Howson snickering a little, right?

Let's compare the two players, shall we? Nash is 28 years old, Skinner is 20. In the last two seasons Nash has 62 goals and 125 points in 157 games. Skinner had 51 goals and 107 points in 146 games. Keep in mind those were the first two seasons of Skinner's career. Oh, and Rickh Nash has a cap hit of $7.8 million for each of the next six seasons while Skinner has a cap hit of $1.4 million for one more season before becoming a restricted free agent.

And as I said I can only assume, but based on previous reported trade demands, that was just part of what Howson wanted in return for Nash. Even as a straight up offer the Hurricanes aren't going to take it.


JR: Howson, buddy, what'll it take to get your captain... (spits out his Molsons)... What the fug you smokin? You can have Skinner when you pry him from my cold, dead hands!

Nash=top line forward
Skinner=Future superstar/Art Ross Trophy winner.

Nash is on the decline and Skinner is the NHL's next big superstar, I have no idea what Howson was thinking.

We only have a few untouchables (Cam Ward, Justin Faulk, Jeff Skinner, Jordan Staal, and Eric Staal), we made that clear from the beginning and Howson tries do bullsh*t us. It's just not going to happen lol.

Anyway, Chip Alexander tweeted

Chip Alexander ‏@ice_chip
Rutherford said Canes will continue to look at trades. Said team has financial wherewithal to be involved with bigger names, if available.
