Come Home, Ray Whitney!!!!!!!!!!!!

NHL has him listed in an article as one of the top 12 FA's. I say, give him a longer contract than Phoenix will, and bring him back where he belongs, JR!!!

Longer? god no. But I'm fine with bringing him back on a two (or preferably one) year deal.

He was Phoenix's top guy last season ... I say give him two more years here. I never thought it was a good idea to let him go!

Off topic, but I never would have thought that. I wonder who else's age I've grossly misjudged.

On topic, I'm OK with Whitney for 1 year, not 2, at a reasonable rate, as a last resort. I don't expect any other free agent to sign at a reasonable rate, though, so I'm expecting Whitney to be a Cane after the dust settles.

Whitney will be Cane at 12:02PM

Phoenix files tampering charges

Bettman awards Phoenix 'Canes 1st round pick 2013

Whitney scores 42 points and goes -28, 'Canes finish dead last

Phoenix gets MacKinnon

Whitney refuses to waive no-trade clause at 2014 deadline

'Canes move to Quebec City

The End

im not sold on bringing him back. too many other options. thought we were steering away from older players, as well as reclamation projects. this does neither. i mean, he did well on Phoenix, but at 40 he could start sucking at any point.....anyone remember Brind'Amour's last season here? please JR, no Whitney, no more older guys.

2 years, 6.5 million, you read it hear first.

And I'd rather him stay in Phoenix.

If it's a short contract I would love him back, he put up 70 points last year. I would say he makes our team better easily.

Giving a 40-year-old player a contract of more than 1 year is a risk not worth taking.

It's a done deal. JR will be announcing Ray's return today.

The sad thing is, Jr will be contempt that this was a HUGE acquisition...and rounds out his top 6 quite nicely.

J Staal and Whitney DO round out the top 6 nicely, and the only reason some here don't think so is because Whitney has played here before. And, some are ******** about Whitney not waiving his NTC.
He's clearly not slowing down. One or two years *shouldn't* be too big of a risk.

prettymuch. One year would be ideal, but you won't get Whitney on a one year deal. Two years is a good bit riskier, but not that bad. Anything beyond that though? Yeah good luck elsewhere Ray.

I don't have a big picture of the number 70, but that's how many points he had last year. On a low scoring team. Without a big star.

He's not my first choice, but he's not a bad option, either. Hell, he'd have been the Canes' second leading scorer last year - the horror !
Edit - F me, 77 points.
