2014 Offseason Report
September 15, 2014




With the draft over with, the New York Rangers were not that busy, as they were focused on re-signing their own players, such as Dan Girardi, Henrik Lundqvist, and Ryan Callahan. The rangers re-signed all of their players, so there are no worries on if any players will head into free-agency. Gm Flamesrule re-signed nrik Lundqvist for four years worth 29.46 million dollars. “I really wanted to re-sign here”, said Lundqvist. “I love New York and I want to retire here.”

Re-Signings

D.Nurse.525K32-WayD59
C.Windsor.525K32-WayG56
J.Pavelka.525K32-WayG53

When the re-signings were over, GM Flamesrule went into free-agency with little-to-no money to spend. He needed to sign a backup goalie and Ray Emery was that guy. He signed Emery to a one-year deal worth 1.490 million dollars. He also sign players to play in the AHL, such as Brad Richardson, Kyle Wellwood, and Roman Cervenka. They wree all signed to two-year deals, except for Richardson.

K.Wellwood.840K22-WayC77
R.Cercenka.785K22-WayC75
B.Richardson.720K12-WayC76

The Rangers and Senators also made a deal, which included draft picks and prospects. Heading to the Rangers was Ottawa's 1st round draft pick and goaltender prospect Juha Metsola. "The Senators are a re-tooling team.I doubt they make the playoffs here, so that's why we traded for the pick. However, I understand that the 2015 draft isn't strong, so I may trade it for a top prospect or just another 1st rounder in the later years.We also didn't need Pavelka, as now we have Dubeau."

Trade Deadline Report

44-14-7

GM Grind Jam Grind is pleased with the Canes' season so far, and did not want to change much going into the trade deadline.

The Hurricanes made one move. They trade Unsigned Prospect RW Ulf Kruger (3.5 yellow) to Buffalo for 25 year old 4th liner LW Andrei Kuleshov (79 OV) and a 2021 4th round pick. Kuleshov is a very physical young player, and will play on the bottom lines.

Hunter Shinkaruk (82 PLY) - Morgan Klimchuk (SNP 86) - James Neal (PWF 85)

Playoff Push

The Carolina Hurricanes have finished the regular season with a 56-18-8 record.

The 1st line certainly did not disappoint. In 82 games, Jeff Skinner had 91 points. Nail Yakupov had 89, and Logan Couture finished with 88.

Rookie LW Hunter Shinkaruk certainly looks like the favorite for the Calder trophy, amassing 76 points! Fellow rookie Connor McDavid also chipped in with 50 points, while centering the 3rd line and getting powerplay time on the 2nd unit.
Rookie defenseman Darnell Nurse had a very respectable 37 point campaign.

The Carolina Hurricanes were first in the NHL with 120 points. They finished 1st in GPG with 3.33, and first in GAPG with 2.10.
The powerplay clicked at 21.6%, which was good for first in the league, and the PK was only 2nd to San Jose, working 87.6% of the time.

The Carolina Hurricanes will face division rival Capitals in the first round of the 2021 playoffs.

Canes Top Caps in 7 game Thriller

The Carolina Hurricanes won game 7 of the series 5-4, clinching a berth in the 2nd round.
Logan Couture had 9 points, but the rest of his line wasn't so hot, with Skinner getting 3 points and Yakupov getting 4.
The secondary scoring stepped up, particularly the third line of Lindberg-McDavid-Elie, who had a combined 14 points in the 7 games.
GM Grind Jam Grind says that while it's great that the Canes are showing their depth, the primary scorers, Skinner, Yakupov, Klimchuk, Shinkaruk, and Neal, have to step up in order to have a chance against the Montreal Canadiens.

Canes Pushed to 7 Games Once Again; Survive

Like the Capitals, the Canadiens also pushed the Canes to 7 games. Game 7 was a 2-1 win for the Canes. Remi Elie continues to impress offensively, and Skinner and Yakupov certainly helped out more, but GM Grind Jam Grind knows that they are capable of posting over PPG numbers. 2nd line RW James Neal has been disappointing, but can redeem himself against his former team, when the Canes meet the Pittsburgh Penguins in the ECF.

Canes Beat Penguins in 5; Move on to face Canucks

In a much less nail-biting series than the previous two, the Canes defeated the Pens in 5 games.
Hunter Shinkaruk had a breakout series and now has the team lead in goals with 8.
The three members of the 1st line once again have the team lead in points, while 2nd line center Morgan Klimchuk has 12 points in 19 games.
3rd liner Oscar Lindberg has been great for the Canes, getting the tough defensive assignments and also scoring 10 points from the third line.
James Neal is still nowhere to be found, with only 4 points.

^ What a season. How do you get guys producing that many points? My guys can barely get ppg, and I tweak strategies regularly to optimize performance.

The Carolina Hurricanes!

Your 2021 Stanley Cup Champions!


It took 7, but Canes won the Cup. James Neal, who was heavily criticized throughout the playoffs scored in the 7th and decisive game.

Hunter Shinkaruk gave the Canes the lead in the third with about 10 minutes to go. Seth Jones and Steven Veilleux shut the Canucks down the rest of the way to win their 2nd Stanley Cup

Raleigh will be celebrating tonight!

Haha, I don't know.
My first line has 2 snipers and a playmaker, all rated 89 and 88.
My 2nd line had a PWF-PLY-SNP combo, always a good thing. Shinkaruk put up 76 points, and isn't good defensively, but Neal is, so it works out well.
Third line has Lindberg-who I recommend signing in FA (I think it's 2014 or 2015) He's excellent defensively. Connor McDavid was only 80 OV, but that's because of his lack of physicality. He had extremely high offensive ratings. The other guy is physical so he compensated for McDavid's softness.
4th line was pretty much useless.
A good PP was important. Put the snipers on the off-wing and the playmakers on their correct wing according to handedness. Defensemen always on the offwing. I don't know if that's what always works, but I've had good PP numbers doing those things.

Oilers draft Frederik Gauthier 13th Overall


Frederik is a big body forward that adds to our already great Offensive core.


We shipped off 3 different players to various team for Picks at the Draft:



Ben Eager (28 Years Old, 4th Line Forward, 74 Overall)



Chicago's 2014 3rd Round Pick



Shawn Horcoff (34 Years Old, 3rd Line CHK FWD)



Dallas' 2nd Round Pick (53rd Overall)



Ladislav Smid (27 Years Old, Top 6 Defenceman, 80 Overall)



Washington's 2014 2nd Round Pick
Washington's 2014 3rd Round Pick
Washington's 2014 7th Round Pick

Alot of these deals were made because we had no room for these players and we didn't exactly love there current contracts. We thank Shawn for his many years of services and Laddy for his "Iron-Man" work ethnic. We also thank Ben. Best of luck with your new Clubs.

Notable Selections

1st Round - 13th Overall - Forward - Frederik Gauthier - 4 Stars
2nd Round - 45th Overall - Defenceman - Joonas Valkonen - 3 1/2 Stars
2nd Round - 53rd Overall - Forward - Matej Beran - 3 1/2 Stars
5th Round - 133rd Overall - Forward - Danny Desrochers - 3 1/2 Stars
5th Round - 146th Overall - Goaltender - Justin Schrors - 3 1/2 Stars

Retirements

Nikolai Khabibulin - 796GP, 330 wins, 341 losses, 45 shutouts

We thank Nik for his services. He was not only a great player but a great mentor and developer for Goalie Devan Dubnyk amongst others.

Re-Signings

Teemu Hartikainen - 2 Years - $1,200,000
Magnus Paajarvi - 3 Years - $1,500,000
Sam Gagner - 2 Years - $1,800,000
Ron Hainsey - 3 Years - $4,400,000
Ryan Whitney - 3 Years - $4,800,000

Free Agent Signings

Alex Plante -1 Year - $1,200,000
Luke Adam - 2 Years - $1,205,000
Anton Khudobin -1 Year - $1,400,000
Manny Malholtra - 2 Years - $2,000,000
David Clarkson - 1 Year - $2,800,000

Alex was an RFA for us, we agreed to a contract in Free Agency. We also sent an Offer Sheet to Buffalo's Luke Adam for a 2 Year Deal, with no Draft Picks at stake. And Buffalo didn't match. Luke is 23, 76 Overall ('4th Line Forward') with 3 1/2 Stars of potential. He is a good kid.

Trades



Niko Hovinen (25 Years Old, Starting Goalie, 82 Overall, 3 1/2 Stars)



New Jersey's 2014 1st Round Pick

We weren't going to pay $4,000,000+ for what Niko was asking. Espeically since he is unproven, with only 1 AHL season under his belt for us. It would be a different story if Niko was our only Goalie but we have Devan Dubnyk. We're hoping New Jersey isn't a good team next year and that is a good pick. We'll see.



Theo Peckham (25 Years Old, Top 4 Defenceman, 81 Overall, 3 1/2 Stars)



Rasmus Ristolainen (18 Years Old, 4 Stars)
Boston's 2014 3rd Round Pick

Theo was asking for to much for our liking, for the type of player we saw him as. We got a good prospect back in Rasmus and Theo is going to be a good fit in Boston he fits there style of Defence.

Rosters coming later.

Offseason Report

Last year's award winning Canes:
Stanley Cup
President's Trophy
Prince of Wales Trophy
Who the hell is Justin Myles and how did he win the Calder when Shinkaruk had 76 points?
Conn Smythe- G Steven Veilleux
Vezina - G Steven Veilleux
William Jennings - G Steven Veilleux
Ted Lindsay Award - G Steven Veilleux

It was certainly an interesting offseason.

After winning the Cup, the Canes were faced with some tough decisions. First and foremost, top 4 defenseman Aaron Ekblad and 2nd line center Connor McDavid needed raises. McDavid especially, was very pricey. Because of his emergence, the Canes had to part with former 2nd line center, sniper Morgan Klimchuk.

Others let go included fan favorite 3rd line center Oscar Lindberg, who came up huge in their Stanley Cup run, and 4th liner Brad Malone.

Because prospects were not ready yet, the Canes had to trade for a 3C. They chose Andrew Cogliano of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The speedy center came over to them in a deal that send prospect LW Mathias Sonnenberg (3.5 yellow) to Pittsburgh. The Canes also got a 5th round pick.

UFA signings included RW Matt Kennedy and LW Brandon Mashinter.

Backup goalie Julio Billia was traded to Toronto for a first, and potential backup goalie Devin Williams was traded to CBJ, also for a first.

In the Morgan Klimchuk deal, the Canes dealt the 26 year old sniper to San Jose for prospect D. Weaver (1st OV pick, 4.5 yellow), J. Akerstrom, and a 7th.

Rookies Leon Draisaitl (PLY LW, 3.5 yellow, 2014 26th OV) and Harry Winchester (TWF LW, 4.5 yellow, 2017 1st overall pick of the STL,) will both begin on the NHL roster.

Lines:

Jeff Skinner (SNP 90) - Logan Couture (PLY 89) - Nail Yakupov (SNP 90)
Leon Draisaitl (PLY 83) - Connor McDavid (PLY 86) - Hunter Shinkaruk (85 PLY)
Harry Winchester (TWF 80) - Andrew Cogliano (TWF 82) - Remi Elie (TWF 81)
Andrei Kuleshow (PWF 79) - Brandon Mashinter (GRN 78) - Matt Kennedy (TWF 77)

Jake Gardiner (TWD 88) - Seth Jones (TWD 91)
Darnell Nurse (TWD 86) - Aaron Ekblad (TWD 85)
Brandon Duke (DFD 78) - Jarrod Fedoruk (DFD 80)

Steven Veilleux (HYB 88)
Alex Fournier (HYB 79)

And Up and Down Regular Season for the Canes

After winning Lord Stanley, perhaps a slow start to the 2021-22 season was to be expected. In December, the Canes found themselves to be the 27th ranked team in the league. Their even strength play was terrible, and to make matters worse, the PP and the PK were at the barrel of the league.

In January however, a turnaround began to happen. The Canes were able to put long winning streaks together. How?

Well, first, the long-time first line of Skinner-Couture-Yakupov, which had been one of the league's most dangerous lines for several years, was disbanded. Playmaker Hunter Shinkaruk took Skinner's position, while Skinner, the dangerous sniper, moved to Connor McDavid's line.

The Canes coach also worked new strategies into each line, and began using an umbrella-style powerplay.

Stats:
44-29-9
5th in the Eastern Conference
2.73 GPG (13th in the NHL)
2.56 GAPG (13th)
17% PP (12th)
79.1% PK (ouch! Guess losing Lindberg and Klimchuk were huge blows)
Team Leaders:
Points:

McDavid - 68
Skinner - 67
Couture - 66
Yakupov - 65
Draisaitl - 58
Shinkaruk - 57

GM Grind Jam Grind did not make any deadline moves, saying that he still likes the composition of the team.

The Canes will face the 4th-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round.

Good stuff!

Really frustrates me when players like Couture would are #1 C's get less than 70 points. They should be getting 85+ at least.

Playoff Push 2022

First Round

Canes fans weren't expecting much from their team in their series against the Lightning, but the Canes quickly discarded the Bolts in 5 games. Jeff Skinner and Leon Draisaitl both had 5 points. McDavid chipped in with 4. Even 4th liners Brandon Mashinter and Matt Kennedy managed to get on the board.

The Canes will face another division rival, the Washington Capitals, next.

Second Round

Like the previous series, the Canes were able to win against the Caps in 5 games. The Canes won all 3 away games. Nail Yakupov leads in points with 9, and Leon Draisaitl has 8. This has been a total team effort so far, with everyone in the top 6, bottom 6, and defense chipping in. Steven Veilleux has a .944 sv% and a 1.64 GAA. He will face goaltender James Reimer in the next series, when the Canes take on the Maple Leafs in ECF. James Reimer has also put up excellent numbers.

Third Round

A 7 game ECF series, with the Canes advancing. Who would have thought this would happen when the Canes seemed destined for the 1st overall pick just a few months ago? The Canes overcame a 3-2 series deficit to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs. The 7th game was certainly...unusual, with the Canes winning 7-4.

Jeff Skinner leads with 14 points in 17 games. Draisaitl, Shinkaruk, and Couture each have 13. Yakupov with 12, and McDavid with 10. In some surprising news, the 4th liners have certainly been pulling their weight. Andrei Kuleshov has 7 points, Matt Kennedy has 6 points, and Brandon Mashinter has 5, which is even more surprising considering that there is no natural center on this line. Kuleshov has been amazing on faceoffs.

A bit of nostalgia for the older generation of Canes fans, as their beloved team will face the Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Stanley Cup Finals

It certainly kept the fans in Raleigh on the edge of their seats. The Canes took a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. They thought it would be time to celebrate soon. But Edmonton came back strong, winning two sudden death overtime games to stay alive. And so the series headed back to Edmonton for a game 7. But here, the Hurricanes gathered themselves, and, excuse the language, took a collective **** on the Oilers. Before the first period was over, the Canes were already leading 4-1. The Edmonton crowd was stunned. Jeff Skinner scored early, and Aaron Ekblad added two more. (He ended up with the Cup-clinching goal) As the clock was counting down, the Oil faithful cheered one more time for their team, who had also made the SCF as a 5th seed. But the Hurricanes cheered even louder, and celebrated their second Cup in as many years!

Logan Couture and Jeff Skinner each finished with 19 points in 24 games.

4th liner Brandon Mashinter retired on top.

After an average preseason (2-2), the Capitals started the season with a 6-2-1 record at the end of October. Elsewhere, the San Jose Sharks got off to a scintillating start to the regular season posting 8 wins out of a possible 8 to start the regular season giving them first in the West and 1st Overall. The Boston Bruins are the only other team ahead of the Capitals with a 7-2-0 record to start the regular season.

John Tavares of the NY Islanders has set the early pace with 15 points in the month of October, with Nicklas Backstrom trailing in second with 13. Just behind htem and rounding out the top 5 are Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks and Alexander Ovechkin, captain of the Capitals. Ilya Bryzgalov is leading the way in the goaltending department with a .960 sv% and a 1.35 GAA in October. Semyon Varlamov just trails in both catagories with a .952 sv% and a 1.43 GAA. Varlamov also posted two shutouts to contribute to his stellar start to the year.

Washington Point Leaders
Nicklas Backstrom 13 (3+10)
Alexander Ovechkin 12 (5+7)
Alexander Semin 10 (7+3)
Mike Green 9 (4+5)
Marcus Johansson 8 (4+4)

Next Update = All Star Break

Spending Spree


Former Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain will join the Seattle Gladiators for the 2017-18 season, and is
signed for another three seasons after that.



After a disastrous season, the Gladiators have surprised the hockey world.


Last season was disappointing, and the team made many trades at the deadline - shipping out older players for young, up-and-coming talent. The team ended up drafting second overall and picked up a fantastic young prospect in Jay Hedican. That did not scare unrestricted free agents away from Seattle, apparently. General manager Deku Scrub decided to spend much of his new-found cap space to try to make a return to the playoffs.


Here are the free agents who inked a contract with Seattle:

D Jamie McBain (85 overall, 29 years old) - 4 years, $23.2M
RW Jakob Silfverberg (82 overall, 26 years old, 4 yellow stars) - 3 years, $11.7M
C Zack Smith (83 overall, 29 years old) - 2 years, $7.74M
D Korbinian Holzer (80 overall, 29 years old) - 2 years, $3.66M
G Justin Paulic (58 overall, 21 years old, 4 yellow stars) - 3 years, $0.925M (2-way)



Also, here are the players, who were already property of the Gladiators, that signed a new contract with Seattle:

G Daniel Cotton (89 overall, 23 years old, 4.5 green stars) - 5 years, $39.25M
C Mikhail Grigorenko (81 overall, 23 years old, 4.5 yellow stars) - 2 years, $3.4M
C Andrew Cogliano (81 overall, 30 years old) - 1 year, $2.8M

+ AHL players and prospects



2017-18 Seattle Gladiators Projected Lineup

(Lines will likely change)

Jakob Silfverberg (82) - Nathan MacKinnon (89) - Phil Kessel (89)
Cory Conacher (84) - Andy Miele (83) - Mikhail Grigorenko (81)
Philip-Michael Devos (80) - Zack Smith (83) - Chris Brown (80)
Andrew Cogliano (81) - Ryan White (78) - *Lucas Lessio (79)

Brandon Gormley (86) - David Rundblad (86)
*Connor Murphy (77) - Jamie McBain (85)
Korbinian Holzer (80) - Maxim Goncharov (78)

Daniel Cotton (89) - Joni Ortio (82)


* indicates rookie

Canes Acquire Brent Seabrook, Win Presidents' Trophy

The Hurricanes had a great season, finishing 56-22-4 for 116 points. The Canes were led by all-stars Can Ward, Marian Gaborik, and Ryan Murphy. Knowing that they were competing for a playoff spot,the Canes traded winger Spencer Machacek and a 2nd round pick to the Black Hawks for defenseman Brent Seabrook who spent the remainder of the season on the third D pairing with Austin Levi. Marian Gaborik's season was one to remember as he had 36 goals and 49 assists to win the Art Ross Trophy.

Trade Details:


Spencer Machacek-32 81 overall
2021-2nd round pick


Brent Seabrook-35 85 overall


The Hurricanes will face the 8th seeded New Jersey Devils in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
