Canes sign Justin Faulk to 6 year extension

Recommended Posts





Well... I mean, I guess that's good.

But, we're sure spending a lot of money on players who can't seem to get this team to the playoffs. I'm not saying Faulk doesn't deserve it but we have so much money tied up in the Staal's, Semin, Skinner, Faulk, and Ward and yet here we are in 11th place or so.

I think JR is scared that if he gives short term contracts to those guys they'd outplay them and bolt for more money later on so this is his way of keeping them around.  Unfortunately when they start to fade we're left with a massive cap hit and an untradeable player.

I know you already know this, but lets face it. We have a goalie who looks like he is primed and ready to be  top 10 at his position for years to come. The roster is LOADED just loaded with young talent. What does that tell me? It's a coaching problem. Get a coach who is proven and knows how to develop young talent and we will be killer next season.

Faulk sucked ass this season and we extend him lol. fug JR.

 

Obv we should have just let him go he isn't ever going to get better ever

 

There aren't too many 27-28 year old defensemen in the league that you watch and say "Man I wish he was as good as he was at 21".  He's gonna have his rough spots but its almost a certainty he's going to get better.

You don't give a player that just had a terrible season a 6 year fuging extension. He's got to at least prove he can improve first before you give him an over half a decade extension.

You are just about the only person that would call his season terrible

You're exaggerating and probably didn't look at him close enough.

I still maintain it's a coaching issue above all else. I think every player has their up and down years, and I think Faulk has proven that when he's good, he's really good.

I want to win, but I think it's asinine to think that it's the players' fault we're not winning. We have more talent now than we did in the 08-09 season, and that team made it (got swept, but we made it).

Get a coaching staff that can make adjustments on the fly and generate a better than below average special teams game, and we're fine, IMO.

I disagree with the loaded talent. We have largely missed with our past drafts aside from Skinner and Lindholm. 

Our team lacks talent relative to the other teams in the NHL. Sure when you watch Canes game your going to be like wow we are good and super talented but we actually suck compare to the rest of the NHL. 

 

Just for comparison sake from the stanley cup team.

 

Ray Whitney

R Brind

Staal

Cole

J Williams

Cullen

Stillman

Plus a solid group of Dmen

 

Compare to our current group

Staal Semin Skinner

Sucky D

 

Talent is what we lack.
