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

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"

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.

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"

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

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.

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"

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