    So what do you think we'll do?

    1) Buy
    2) Sell
    3) Buy some, sell some
    4) Nothing or minor moves only.


    EDIT: for clarification, this is not what you think they should do, but what you predict they will (or won't) do.

    The only thing I think they might do is go get a goalie like Mrazek.

    And I wouldn't be surprised to see them sell off Stempniak or Ryan if they can, and then we finally get our wish of seeing the Charlotte boys.

    Ryan and Stempniak seem like no brainers for small deals.

    Cam Ward might be a piece actually worth something. Make a draft position push and get a worthwhile asset??

    Fortunately for the Canes the last WC spot is looking like a race to the bottom. I think they will actually pick up a middling forward whom they expect to help offensively. Let's say Plekanec.

    I think they sell any UFA and buried NHLer in the AHL that they receive calls about. None of them are irreplaceable. Other than that, we are playing the hand we are dealt.

    I think they should, but I'd be shocked if Francis makes a move for a goalie. I don't think his MO is to make a snap judgement after less than a season on the rightness or wrongness of the Darling decision.

    And if they want Mrazek (I'd be fine with taking a Flyer on him), they better move fast before he is a Flyer.

    I expect they'll sell hard on Stempniak and Krueger (w retention)... assuming there even are any takers for Krueger.
    Wouldn't be shocked to see a sell on Ryan but I think Bill pushes for us to keep him and gets his way.
    Dahlbeck could be of some minor interest for depth purposes, but I think we'd prefer to hang on to him and if we make a move with one of our D this summer use him as our #6 going forward for another year or two.

    I expect what buys we make to be during the summer at the draft

    I'm in between by some sell some and nothing or minor moves only.

    I could see us moving somebody to bring somebody in but I expect us to just make small adds.

    get rid of ryan.

    personally, i think getting 4-5 playoff games will really help this team not freak out in a game with more than moderate ramifications, and the devils and isles are also terrible, so i say go for it.

    Unfortunately Ryan's recent play has devalued him a bit. I think Stempniak should get some interest, maybe Ryan, perhaps Kruger w/a good bit of retention. I don't think they sell on Cam until they have the crease figured out. There's still going to be a push for this season, it is just a matter of whether it's because of a new guy or because of the new blood the deadline selling brought in from Charlotte.

    Funny how we think Stemp has more value in a trade but we bench him for a game and then play the guy with less value 20 minutes and in OT in critical situations.

    I love the decision making in this organization.

    I could seriously see them doing absolutely nothing and claiming there was not enough market for guys like Stempniak, Kruger, Ryan and that theyed rather keep them

    IMO there is no better time to bring in a forward with term and name recognition to get the fan base excited. Doesn't have to be a top line legit forward like we need...but just anything at all to get the fan base excited and the team re energized. Trading some package of Fluery, picks, mckeowon, stempniak, Kruger, Ryan etc and freeing up a spot for Zykov and a forward similar to when we got teravainen is my ideal scenario.


    Still, expecting nothing

    I think we'll sell but it will be minor moves only. We'll pick up a mid round pick for a UFA or two, and Francis will be celebrated as a shrewd GM for making moves any GM of a mediocre team would do.

    Yeah that does not read like Peters approves of, or was even involved in, those decisions.

    Particularly noteworthy is the “and ownership”, which implies that the hard decisions are coming from over Francis’ head.

    yeah, he conjugates "have" to imply (in his mind) ownership and management are the same- "has" (which is, "he/she/it has") rather than separate, "have".

    it could also mean they're on the same page- but either way, imply that peters feels out if the loop.

    I expect nothing, of course, but I honestly think with Dundon in the pilot seat we may be surprised by what happens. This guy isn't into waiting. The Canes (while pissing us all of to no end) still sit right outside of the WC spot. They were just ousted yesterday. As hard is that is to believe. I think they make some moves, I just hope it's not more 3rd/4th liners. Personally, I'd be surprised by a trade for a goalie.

    Trade for Rick Nash with huge overpayment. Rick Nash scores one goal in the remaining games for the canes. Will not resign . The canes will miss the playoffs by one point. They will draft 14th overall. Best players from the farm traded to New York Rangers. Suicide rate and alcoholism rate shoot up within the Canes fans ranks
