    interesting to see how he'll perform by making the jump to the NHL in late March where all the NHLers are in top shape

    Watching him yesterday, he just has so much more raw talent than anyone else on the ice it's insane. If he can control that, he can be a dominant defenseman.

    Very excited to watch him play now.

    If I was a big Canes fan, I'd be pretty bugged. Not at him, but at Cane's management ;)

    Glad to see him finally making the leap.

    Dumb move. He should have stayed in school.

    Canes should have kept him instead of making that myopic trade for Gleason. Oh well, at least he's out of the conference if he turns out to be a player.

    Why? He actually regressed this year if you ask me. I think staying in school was a bad decision for him.

    Too bad he didn't stick around but he's a very talented guy and he belongs in the NHL now. The Kings will love having his offensive skill and physical play. I think Rob Blake will take him under his wing and he'll become an All-Star within the next two years.

    being a huge canes fan and a member on the official discussion forum, trust me, we have been upset about this since the second it happened. and now, especially when we (the canes) are right on the edge every day of being in or out of the playoffs, we need him badly.

    however, Tim Gleason has been VERY solid for us since coming in, once he got over his injury, and Josef Vasicek, the guy we got (back) from Nashville when we traded Eric Belanger (the other guy we got with Gleason on the JJ trade) has been stepping up lately and has been putting in a good amount of points lately.

    honestly, as much as it would be GREAT to have JJ right now, the 2 guys who have replaced his 1 spot on the team have been very solid. may be a straight across trade.

    Doesn't really bother me as a 'Canes' fan.

    Perhaps if we were out of the playoff race, but Gleason has started to pick up his play at the right time and we are far from done.

    Kings' fans seem to love him, but I don't know how much of a difference they expect him to make.

    I think the Kings last game is on NBC so you will probably be able to see him in a few days.

    Wow, less then a day after losing to UND Jack signs with LA, and is immediately implemented into the LA roster.

    Sounds like the kid really wants to play. Good for him. Bad for Carolina, patience would have benefited them greatly
