    Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s my understanding he has to be under sort of contract to come to training camp and if he does that he loses his NCAA rights so it’s be the AHL
  2. 37th overall

    Shooters shoot
  3. 37th overall

    If Kaut falls you take him in a heartbeat..
  4. A look back at the Cory Schneider trade 5 years later

    Happy we got Horvat but if that Oilers prospect was Klefbom I’d cry.
  5. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    It’s Dobson for me if he’s available. Unless Tkachuk is avaliable too then it’s a toss up.
  6. You’re right forsure on them wanting to do a similar swap, they desperately need a forward. I just feel like Nashville’s Defence was so good by the time he got traded that Jones wasn’t getting the ice time he deserved and his numbers reflected on it. He stepped into Columbus and doubled his point production in the same amount of games. Also I don’t think Hanifin gets a 23 year old big two way center coming off a 71 point season and also had 26 points in 38 games the year he was traded. Edit: I’m not going to argue about the drafts.. Probably the two best draft classes after 2003 in the last 20 years. 2008 was good too.
  7. MDZ was traded for Klein that year and Ekholm was a returning young player. The Canes should have let Hanifin play college one year or signed him and let him play in the AHL a season. Any Canes fan will tell you that too. There’s no doubt Hanifin is good, he can move the puck up the ice incredibly good has good vision and a good skater. Going into the draft Hanifin was supposed to be this great two way defenceman who can play great in his own zone and neutral zone. The knock on him was it was unsure how he would play offensively. I feel like if Hanifin spent one more year developing his defensive game would be much better than it is now. Seth Jones went into the draft going in as a possible #1 Overall pick that shouldn’t have slipped past #3. He could dominate all 3 zones of the ice and was a for sure lock to play in the NHL the same year. It’s not that I’m undervaluing Hanifin it’s just that’s how good Jones was at the time he was drafted. Even when Jones was traded he was trusted way more in his own zone than Hanifin. They’re not the same player. O I understand Hanifin is young still young, good and a player that fits what we need. His ceiling has seemed to regressed since then and I don’t see the reason to trade our 7th overall + for a player who we could draft with a similar skill set. As of right now we’re a bottom 6 team again next year with or without Hanifin. But it’s not worth the risk and assets to get him. Think about this, in a 2013 redraft where would Jones go? Now where would Hanifin go in a redraft?
  8. I don’t think Hanifin makes that team.
  9. Carolina Hurricanes Defense 15/16 (Hanifins rookie year): Ron Hainsey(35) Noah Hanifin(18) - rookie Jaccob Slavin(21) - rookie Brett Pesche(20) - rookie Justin Faulk(23) - injured 19 games Ryan Murphy(22) - tweener Michal Jordan(24) - in khl now Nashville Defense 13/14 (Jones rookie year): Shea Webber (27) Roman Josi (23) Ryan Ellis (23) Seth Jones(18) - rookie Matthias Ekholm(24) - Michael Del Zotto(23) - deadline deal Kevin Klein(28) - not in NHL traded that year Victor Barley(26) - not in NHL I wonder which team was harder to crack.
  10. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    I really don’t see a trade here. I Wouldn’t trade our 7th for Hanifin where we could get a player with a similar or even higher ceiling. We won’t / really shouldn’t trade: Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Demko. We should also figure out what we have in Dahlen and Gaudette before thinking about moving them. Carolina has a log jam with younger defenders: Faulk(26), Slavin(24), Pesche(23), Fluery(21) and Hanifin (21) so us trading a Dman doesn’t seem likely so take Tanev out of the picture. The only way I see Carolina trading him for prospects is if the other team over pays. They need forwards and goalies. Besides Hanifin can’t play defence. He was second worst on the team in +/- only to Justin Faulk who had also terrible year. You also look at his advance stats this year compared to Jones 3rd year (who people for some reason are comparing him to for what ever reason, draft position? Points?) and Jones has a better relative Corsi, relative Fenwick while Jones started in the defensive zone 14% more. So unless Carolina wants to do a deal around a package of Juolevi(really unlikely), Goldobin, Dipetro, Nielsson, this year and nexts second (I’m still hesitant on trading picks), Lind, Gadjovic, or our RFA’s its a no for me
  11. Lou Lamoriello will not return as Leafs GM

    He’s 75, you’d think he’s thinking it’s about time to retire.
  12. Rumour - Larry Brooks - Max Domi

    More than well understood that there is scouts at every game. Doubt that’s the reason why they had scouts there though. The only sign you get about Biega in our lineup is a sign that we need help on D
  13. Rumour - Larry Brooks - Max Domi

    Saw a tweet saying there is Arizona scouts at the game today and Goldobin is playing first line. Guy can dream right?
  14. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Barring winning the lottery I hope we have an opportunity at Bouchard. I remember watching him at the U17’s and he was the best dman in the tournament. He’s having an unreal season and deserves to be jumping up the rankings.
