The Official Hurricanes 2012 Offseason Thread Part IV: We Lose Allen to the Ducks
 
Allright ladies and gents!!

Tomorrow at 2, JR will be giving a press conference.

What will he be discussing?

Jordan Staal extension?

Trade for Nash/Bouwmeester?

Signing Parise/Suter?

Or none of the above, and instead JR will explain why we didn't offer Allen the 5 year, 30 million dollar contract with a full NMC that Terry Pegula graciously gave out?

Discuss.

Again, does JR normally do a press conference like this? I don't really remember

Sens1Canes2 06-30-2012 09:30 PM

I seriously doubt Bouwmeester is a target. JR is wary of guys that like to have a little too much fun off the ice...and has remarked as such about JayBo.

SOP. He does it ever year. It means zero as far as free agency goes -- or a trade.

However, I do believe there may be something to announce on the JStall front since technically he can't sign an extension before July 1, and its gonna be an easy deal to get done, for obvious reasons.

For me, it wasn't the fact he's holding the press conference, but the timing of it. I don't remember exactly when last year's was held, but I thought it was more in the 4-5 PM range, not 2 PM. Just seems a bit odd how soon after noon they have it scheduled. Of course, it probably just means we're doing absolutely nothing and JR will talk about how the "right deal wasn't out there" :laugh:

yeah he usually has a press conference but not till 4-5 so idk what the hell is up.but obviously I'm hoping we sign a parise/suter but thats not happening so i hope we get a tough guy prust or parros,colaiacovo and parenteau or boyes.

TheBigKahuna 06-30-2012 10:17 PM

Canes sign Whitney by the end of the day Monday....but don't announce their big splashes until Wednesday. (guys you have to Google)

Lethargic 06-30-2012 10:20 PM

My guess.

J. Staal signs 7y @ 7 per year

Sign a goalie, sign a top 6 wing, sign a 4th liner, and sign a d-man.

You really think that much is going to happen?

Identity404 06-30-2012 10:26 PM

My Prediction:

JR will come on at 2pm to announce that the prices for fowards are too high. He will claim that we will still look to improve our team by trade (this trade will never happen). JR WILL sign a gritty veteran defensenman. One of Corvo or Spacek. "We like our Group"

damn bro thats a lot, i hope so :)

If JR really drops a "We like our group" tomorrow, I may fly down to Raleigh and punch JR in the face.

JustJoe2k5 06-30-2012 10:45 PM

Does "we like our group" really still apply after Rutherford traded one of his "untouchables" for a top-six forward? It seems like quite a few people here had unreasonable expectations for this offseason, because I think most franchises would consider adding a player like Jordan a successful offseason.

DO I HAVE TO TYPE THIS IN ALL CAPS AND BOLD LETTERS FOR YOU ALL TO UNDERSTAND?

Terry Pegula is completely and entirely committed to spending as much and signing whomever necessary to ensure that the Buffalo Sabres..

WIN MULTIPLE STANLEY CUPS

Let me know what time you're planning on going by I'd love to join you in that

Sasha Cares 06-30-2012 10:53 PM

I'm guessing

"we wanted to sign a top 6 winger then realized LaRose will be much improved this year so its equivalent to adding a top 6 winger"

Big Daddy Cane 06-30-2012 11:08 PM

Just guessing... Andrei Kostitsyn and Sheldon Brookbank. Kostitsyn because of familiarity with Muller and Brookbank because he's a gritty veteran with bloodlines.
