I can dig it, definitely think it's time to shuffle some of the defensive deck in Charlotte. Have to think a few of those Charlotte guys on expiring deals are done here.

We trying to stop winning for MacKinnon right out of the gate? Can't imagine he's anywhere close to NHL ready.

At some point in the near future I mean. My main point is that I'd love to see a young defenseman come up next year and play really well

Agree. Plus, unless there's a trade, the inn is quite full with McBain, Pitkanen, Faulk, Harrison, Gleason, and (presumably) Allen.

Well my main point is that I just want to see a better defense. Whether that means someone from Charlotte come up or someone like Gleason actually live up to his contract.

I can understand wanting a better defense and agree with that. I don't think adding any of our prospects will necessarily make them better next year. Having a healthy Pitkanen back should help though.

The only guy in Charlotte who has a chance IMO is up now and that is Sanguinetti. Of the other guys, maybe Dumoulin would have a chance, but I think the rest of them (Murphy, Levi, Alt, Biega, etc..) would be better served with more time in JRs/AHL.

Great news. Seemed like just a matter of time.

It'll be interesting to see how the contracts shake out this summer with so many strong D prospects.

Excited to see how he reacts to the pro game in Charlotte during the playoffs.

I'm so pumped for this kid.

It's currently full, but I like it that way personally. That means we've got a passable defense for a few years which gives our prospects as much time as they need to develop with the occasional injury call up.

I certainly hope so. Anyone know if/when he could sign and play for Charlotte this season?

The time table just doesn't work out. He COULD sign but likely won't play. The NCAA regionals begin next weekend, and the final 4, if they make it, begins around April 5th.

Checkers season ends April 15th...so if BC misses out on the final 4, he could be able to play a handful of games.

He wouldn't be eligible for playoffs?

He could...and it's happened before. But it has to be beneficial to the Checkers as well.
