The Canes are looking for a right-shot defenseman. At a decent price. This may be the guy.

 

Not the best numbers/stats this season but wouldn’t say no and let bean and fleury fight it out in the other spot. A little competition would def help fleury and probably Bean too.

He's been hurt this season, but he's not an offensive-minded D. He's physical and would provide a presence Dougie cannot, for some reason, figure out.

Look, right now everyone (Hamilton & Canes) is saying the right things, but if Hamilton wants $8M a year, he needs to find a physical part of his game that will have teams thinking twice about teeing off on Canes players. I'm not completely sold on Hamilton at that price.

I'm also beginning to think the team is looking at replacing TT. I'm increasingly concerned if he'll ever lace up the skates again.

I'm onboard with the author that Manson isn't worth a first-round pick. If the choice is to give up a 1st round pick or give $8M to Dougie, unfortunate as it may seem, the second option I can live with.

And, I'm not sure, but the author also makes it sound like Fleury is the odd man out if Carolina does find another right hand blue liner.

That’s what I’ve read elsewhere too. I think it was NHL.com’s trade buzz.

I love that nobody voted for defense and only 2 votes for size/grit. Yet, here we are at the deadline looking for a big physical defensemen.

    • As long as it's not the old Panther's offense of yore where half our PA plays were just: "PA -> all go routes." With our speedsters not named Steve Smith of Keary Colbert, and Kris Mangum, or whatever it was at the time. Just a joke to defend and led to Jake getting crushed far too often for a massive loss.
    • I understand that as well. I would not be in favor of a LB that early. I am pretty much opposed to taking a RB in the first round ever. So I do get it. That said, DT is just such an important position. I just don’t understand the positional value argument I’m relation to DT. Because the best ones eat two blockers. That gives so much leverage to your edge rushers and LBers.    Obviously it isn’t the most important position on the field but it plays such a huge role that gets overlooked by the casual fan. I was of the mindset from day one that I preferred to keep Star over Short. And clearly Short was a great athlete but Star made his job significantly easier. A nasty DT makes the job easier for ever single player on the line. I wanted Brown months before the draft process had started for this reason.
    • Having history with Matt Rhule definitely helps. We interviewed another former Patriots guy for our GM job too. Monti Ossenfort made it to the second round but didn't get the job. Of course, just like Stewart, Ossenfort had a job elsewhere inbetween the Patriots and us.
