So essentially the in the past 3 months the Canes have lost Aaron Ward, Matt Cullen and Jack Johnson and replaced them with Tim Gleason and Eric Belanger?
Sorry but that is poor asset management.
That's what seperates the team's that repeat from the team's that end up fighting for a lottery pick 3 years after they win the cup.
No amount of spinning in the world is gonna change my mind on the deal. If I'm L.A. I'm thrilled.
Its not spinning... they lost the deal... but they got the depth they needed. No one says they're going back to the finals but they should be able to remain competative which is critical right now because they are trying to build a fan base... and they obviously thought JJ wasn't going to sign with them, yes they could have done much better but they filled some needs. so its not a complete loss.
