    Priskie was barely ranked by Pronman pre-season and unranked by Wheeler in-season. Acquired the more traditional way and he'd be as known as a Fensore or Sellgren.

    Keane will probably get overrated for a similar reason. Still, Carolina needed a B+ type prospect at that position. Since 2012, the team has drafted just 1 RHD with a 1st or 2nd round pick (Luke Martin - 2017).

    Great point. Would love to see a lot of the younger Rangers get sent down for a playoff run in the AHL.

    Meaning guys like Howdie, Chytil, Fox, Lindgren. A move like that helps build a future core.

    Would even welcome Lias back with open arms for a run.

    Don't underestimate the physical play. That is what makes him, I believe, Gorton's kind of support player

    Thanks. I hadn't read that he's physical really. His speed obv, size and shot were most of what was covered and the neg was his 'hockey IQ'

    I'm hopeful he was just blocked and is truly ready, willing AND ABLE to be a solid NHL'er for us.

    Is Gauthier a true power forward?

    I admit that I don't remember any time that I may have viewed him (outside of highlights), but most of what I have read about him suggests that he uses his shot more than his size to be productive.

    Edge's comparison to a better-developed Gropp rings very true to me.

    I see what you're saying here, especially given that Mika and Buch will need a new LW if/when Kreider is traded.

    But by the same token, imagine him to the right of Panarin once Fast is gone...

    Trying not to get my hopes up too high, but he was one of the guys I wanted him to target and points to Gorton building the exact kind of team I want to see: big, fast, and heavy, with just a few extremely talented smaller guys mixed in.

    Is he Lucic? No. But he doe not fear the front of the net or corners. And he finishes his checks.

    Excellent post. I would add that it would also be very good for the whole organization to have the Wolfpack win a round or two in the playoffs. The experience for the players down there would be fantastic. The level of play in any playoff round is that much tougher than the regular season. I don't think Shesterkin has ever been the the go-to goalie in the playoffs--I think that experience, even in the AHL, would be good for him. He's never going to play in the AHL again after this season. It wouldn't be a "demotion".

    I didn't read the 23 pages here, but if this kid can move like this, at 6'4" and 230 lbs, then it might be a good move for us.



    With his size at 22 yrs old, he can have an immediate impact in making this team from the get go. Very unlike Keene would have had.

    According to him, his game came around late last season, when most plays on the PP and breakouts centered around him. That's when his goal production went up. Doubt very much he will get that much attention here, but he can still crash the net and finish checks.

    He played a good game tonight in limited ice time on the 4th line. I felt generous and gave him the third star tonight, off his display of breakaway speed that drew a penalty, in which Strome promptly scored on the PP. Good start for the youngster with only 7+ minutes on the ice.

    I watched some tape on Keane, he has great skating and agility, looked like figure skating/speed skating type fluidity. But other than that I thought his shot was weak and he does not throw big hit that much(maybe just the clips I saw).

    He is a very good skater but we need the speed on the wing that Gauthier supplies. He drew a penalty with his speed tonight. And our PP is one of the best in the league lately.

    Another thing is if Keane injures a knee or starts having some chronic knee problems I don't think he will be able to skate the way he does.

    In 6 games against the Pack this year this kid scored 6 goals and 3 assists. He terrorized them

    kid is huge, can skate, drives hard to the net, has good hands (at the ahl level atleast) I'm still waiting for the catch that explains why he hadn't gotten a shot in the nhl yet. and I don't think the answer is simply that the canes had no room.

    Why not? Many people had Carolina as a Cup-contender going into the season.

    How does Gauthier compare to Josh Anderson? I know a lot of people have been mentioning that guy as a potential target.

    Anderson scored 27 goals and had 200 hits last year. If Gauthier performs half as well I'd be happy.

    Didn’t see the whole game but looks like Chytil and Strome need to work in their face offs.

    I am all for the trade but using that for the reasoning is hilarious.

    I like Gauthier, I like the idea behind this trade too. Yet I think what we saw last night is sort of his game, which is good. If he can add some vision /play making to his game, I am really going to like this trade, where I think the catch so to speak sort of is, will he be able to round out or add elements to his game?

    Also he will be waiver eligible next season, and expansion draft eligible, and for the Canes that was probably going to be an issue.
