Must be the Hockey Gods are going to work through JR to get us there.

now we can only hope that JR turns into anti-JR and drafts Tarasenko.

My feeling of the Hockey Gods was off, bigtime.

7th is still good and we should get a solid player.

Isn't drafting Tarasenko going off the chart. TSN doesn't even have him on their Top 30.

I'd rather go for Gormley if he's available then Nino.

You are probably looking at the NA skaters top 30...if not then he should definitely be in the top 15

He'd be top three if he played in NA and held any other passport but Russian.

Does anyone know if we'll be hearing from JR today? I thought I read the other day he was going to talk about the season and offseason today. I'm waiting to hear the man speak. I'd like to get a hint of what his offseason gameplan is and what we may look like next season.

JR and PM will meet with media at 10-30 in RBC center. I hope the live stream will be available from canes website. Otherwise, we'll have to wait for Chip and Paul to post something online.

Excellent.


I am just hoping we get a clear idea of what JR's plans are for the offseason. What he believes the teams needs are, how young we may go next season, which kids impressed him this season and where he thinks they stand, etc.

The tweets are pouring in

-JR is content with No. 7 draft position

- Barasso will split time between Raleigh and Charlotte next year

-On brind'amour - "Will try to make it work for him and the team. My hope he'll be with this organization for a long time"

-Babchuk wants to come back and had initial conversation with the agent.

- No decision on the backup goalie. Legace has interest on going to Russia.

No surprise. Solid draft, solid position.

This is good news.

Hmm... I get the sense here that if there isn't a spot and role for Rod here on the team heading forward as a player, there will be a spot for him within the organization. I take this as a 'somewhat softening the blow', if Rod is indeed not brought back.

Quote:
-Babchuk wants to come back and had initial conversation with the agent.
I'll be 100% honest when I say I thought this relationship was fried. Heck, I thought it was after the first go around. Based on this, Babchuk will be brought back and our defence will be Pitkanen, Gleason, McBain, Babchuk, Pothier & Carson. No need to get into the Babchuk/JR dispute, but he can be an asset for this team. Maybe he can play top 4 on this team, maybe he can't. Bottom line is, with the correct amount of minutes and PP time, Babchuk can likely help us win more regular season games than lose. I am ok with a Babchuk return.

This surprises me a bit. But hey, at this stage of his career if he wants to keep playing, its an option.

If i was JR I'd try use one or more of our second round picks and perhaps one of the prospects for another trade to get another 1st round pick.

I know he won't pick Tarasenko at No. 7, but i'd hope we could trade for another 1st round pick and gamble picking Russian with a second 1st rounder.

I'd be 100% down with that. The potential of landing (If the big 3 defenceman are gone) Neiderreiter AND Tarasenko would be thrilling. I think we'd have to give up one of our better roster guys for another 1st though.

If we trade back into the first round I don't think we would be in the situation to draft Tarasenko. I think it would be more likely we pick up a defensemen.

My want list at 7 is:
Connolly
Neiderreiter
Gormley

if we reach I'll take:
Forbort
Granlund
Johansen

I am way to scared to draft any Russian at 7.

Basically, after watching the video JR and Canes already know who they are going to draft and actually think the player might make the roster next year.

He also repeated my idea of trading some 2nd round picks and get another 1st rounder.

EDIT: I loved what JR had to say about the prospects and prospect development. Also, looks like organization is very high on Dalpe and he just might be playing in Raleigh next year.

A lot of interest in Manny from Russian teams, says JR. He says he wants to give Manny an answer a few weeks before July 1st.

Not too thrilled with JR saying Jay Harrison could be the answer to more grit and toughness on the blue line, although Harrison seemed solid the last part of the season.
