2019 Playoff race.

Recommended Posts

I can't believe what I saw from Mrazek tonight. Wow. Great win on the road against a sneaky team. Svech was great too, hope he sticks on the 2nd line and when Ferland comes back he drops to the 3rd. If Svech can build off of this the rest of the year, that added boost could not only solidify a playoff spot for us but could help us win a series or two.

I'm thankful that tomorrow I can happily scoreboard watch and imagine different scenarios culminating into another Canes Stanley Cup win.

I hope we can figure out a way to sign Ferland for a reasonable deal, but he's going to want more money than I think we're willing to give. 

 

Also, Mrazek is playing out of his skull. Holy poo guys.

He hasn’t been able to stay healthy and has been replaced on both the first and second lines by Nino and Svech just fine. I love his game and any team would love to have him but I don’t think we’ll pay to keep him

At first I wanted to keep Ferland and I still wouldn't mind it at a decent price.  He brings a lot to the table when he's there.  I think we didn't get a good enough offer on the table to trade him so we just consider him our "rental" player for the "push".  Svech's coming out party was last night.  Kid looked elite.

I think we should still look to keep Ferland.  Svech was the 2nd pick, he's not destined to only be our second liner he's destined for more.  We have a lot of depth.  We have a lot of cap space.  I think we should look to keep our core together.  If we can keep our core together we're going to be good for a very long time.  I think if anything Rod B's philosophy has underscored the value of chemistry and a good locker room.  If he's identified Ferland as an important piece of that puzzle then we should absolutely resign him.  

Part of the reason we're so good this year along with goaltending is our depth.  We go beyond 4 lines and extend into AHL callups that could be 3rd line guys for other NHL teams especially our defensemen.  I don't want to minimize our depth.  It's nice to have Svech be able to jump right up and have a big game.  Conversely if Svech get's hurt it would be nice to have Ferland step up and answer the bell.  I know we could get away with letting Ferland sign else where and we might have too, but we should definitely do everything we can to keep him within reasonable limits.  I think guys like McKegg, McGinn, Wallmark have also raised their value this year.  So our option would be to resign one of those guys and keep Ferland.

I think it would allow guys like Necas to develop a little further, and it would send a positive message to the rest of the group that if they produce for us then the Canes will reward them.  

Obviously Aho comes first.  We also have to consider Justin Williams.  He's older, but he's really produced and he's a great leader.  He's been a calming influence on the squad.  He's helped quickly elevate the maturity level of all the young players.  Considering he and Brindy played on the SC team together....he's in essence a coach on the ice.  I actually hope he'll take an assistant job after he's done playing.

Calvin de Haan injured his eye in the game against Colorado but it's been reported that he avoided a serious injury and his eye is responding to treatment.

Fleury has been called up on an emergency basis.

I'm truly not sure if I've ever seen a division stacked this deep in any sport. I've never have seen this kind of race. It's a sight to behold....and will make it all the more meaningful.
