Official Canes Off-season Thread


Recommended Posts

I’d like to see…

Svechnikov - Aho - Turbo ($21,610,250 cap hit)

Forsberg (FA) - Kotkaniemi - Jarvis ($14,714,167 cap hit)

Niederreiter (FA) - Staal - Fast ($13,250,000 cap hit)

Deslauriers (FA) - Drury - Martinook ($3,625,000 cap hit)

Slavin - Pesce ($9,325,000 cap hit)

Chychrun (Trade) - Skjei ($9,850,000 cap hit)

Chatfield - DeAngelo ($4,762,500 cap hit)

Andersen ($4,500,000 cap hit)

Kochetkov ($842,500 cap hit)


- Reunite the SAT line

- Forsberg adds a young scoring threat and playmaker to our roster. KK would have to be the second line center in order to afford someone like Forsberg. With KK’s cap hit, he realistically needs to be the 3C at the very minimum anyway

- Nino takes a team friendly deal to come back to Carolina

- Drury is elevated to the NHL and we sign Deslauriers to be the sandpaper that this team desperately needs

- Reunite Slavin and Pesce

- Trade Necas and picks/prospects for Chychrun

- Resign TDA, and elevate Chatfield

- Andersen returns as the starter and Kochetkov is elevated

You can't trade Necas he is a RFA.

In the NHL, you can trade an RFA’s rights.

Essentially Carolina would work a deal with Arizona for Chychrun and behind the scenes Arizona would agree to a contract with Necas. Carolina would then trade Necas’ rights for Chychrun and then Arizona would sign Necas to a contract while avoiding any sort of offer sheet nonsense.

So you want Sjkei playing on his off side.... for a second pairing.... and we also have to figure out the last year of Jake Gardiner.

If everyone plays their natural side it would look like:

Slavin - Pesce

Chychrun - TDA

Skjei - Chatfield

And Gardiner is going to have to go back to LTIR for the last year of his contract or we ship him out and unfortunately attach a pick to him to get him off our books.

I don't agree with screwing around with a group of blue liners that aren't the problem. Cole (UFA) and Smith (UFA) are both gone with Bear (RFA) and Chatfield stepping up. TDA gets a new deal and the decision needs to be made on Jake Gardiner. 

Defense: Slavin, Pesce, Skjei, TDA, Bear, Chatfield and add 2 more (Gardiner, LaJoie, Keane, FA)

Trocheck will get paid more than the Canes can afford and he'll be gone. Derek Stepan is also gone. I think both KK and Domi are better centers than wingers. Domi may be one of the best distributors of the puck on the team. He sees all the ice and there is a very noticeable difference in his play when he's at center versus wing. If Domi is the odd man out, Drury will replace him.

Centers: Aho, Staal, Domi, KK

Every one of the wingers under contract will be back next season. Nino gets a new contract while both Lorentz and Necas are both question marks. RBA has tweaked lines, benched and done just about everything imaginable to get Necas going. It's safe to say the future of Necas in Raleigh is somewhat dependent on just how frustrated RBA is. Lorentz, because he was a healthy scratch for a good part of the playoffs, maybe gone as well. Although he started to show some grit, it was toward the end of the season and, with his size, it needs to be part of his game- every game.

Fowards: Svech, TT, Martinook, Fast, Jarvis, Nino and add 2 more (Noesen, Leivo, FA)

Bear was and is awful, there’s a reason he didn’t play in the postseason, the Canes desperately need another top four defenseman.

Their top 4 are Slavin, Pesce, Skjei and TDA.

The experts tend to disagree with your assessment of Bear, but we'll see.

That top four just isn’t good enough. Skjei regressed as the season went on and TDA is ideally a second paring defenseman.

The Canes need another top four defenseman, plain and simple.

Also, which experts? It appears that RBA doesn’t disagree with me.

RBA opted for experience over youth in the post-season. Cole was horrible and Smith us a little something once in a while. He didn't play Lorentz either, until he had no choice.

RBA and his staff have always been pretty high on Bear, and have made plenty of comments to that effect over the course of the season.

Defense isn't what ended the Canes season this year, but hey, it's your observation and opinion.

Well RBA isn’t going to come out and grill his own players, he’s not that type of coach and never has been.

Bear could hardly crack the lineup during the regular season and didn’t even sniff the lineup during the playoffs.

Using Lorentz as an example just furthers my point, he played him when he had to… he never had to play Bear and he still doesn’t as we can upgrade that position.

Cole was horrible and Smith was meh and yet Bear still couldn’t get a shot.

Bear’s QO would be $2.5M and I can damn well guarantee you that the Canes won’t pay that in the current situation they are in regarding the cap.

Chatfield showed that he’s ready and can play in the league so he should be up next year and at the very least Keane can serve an extra. However, you don’t want to set Chatfield up to fail by pairing him with a poor line mate.

It’s time to upgrade the defense again with a top four defenseman.

Slavin - Pesce

??? - TDA

Skjei - Chatfield

Personally I think we should have traded Necas for Chychrun during the season and I definitely think we need to revisit now.

    • Did we hear Corral will get more game time / a game plan?
    • Thanks to Anthony Rizzuti of Panthers Wire 1. QB Baker Mayfield: 80.5 2. OL Cade Mays: 79.1 3. WR Keith Kirkwood: 78.4 4. WR Derek Wright: 77.2 5. TE Giovanni Ricci: 75.5 33. TE Jared Scott: 46.5 34. C Pat Elflein: 45.6 35. QB Matt Corral: 43.3 36. RG Austin Corbett: 31.9 37: TE Nate Becker: 30.3   1. LB Cory Littleton: 92.8 2. CB Duke Dawson: 90.1 3. CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver III: 82.1 4. LB Brandon Smith: 81.5 5. CB Tae Hayes: 77.0 31. LB Julian Stanford: 37.7 32. DT Daviyon Nixon: 37.4 33. LB Isaiah Graham-Mobley: 36.4 34. DT Bravvion Roy: 36.0 35. DT Frank Herron: 30.2 Take from it what you will. I would like to see all the grades, but I will say that it appears that the depth at DT is bad, while the same at CB looks good. Our LB corps may not be great, but its floor is probably average at worst. All in all, these grades are probably a pretty accurate reflection of the team's strengths and weaknesses at certain positions. If you want to read the little no-account words that accompany the grades here it is: https://pantherswire.usatoday.com/lists/panthers-pff-grades-panthers-commanders/
