Rick Dudley? He's still doing that hockey???

So Rick Dudley and Don Waddell.
Is this some kind of April Fool's on May 1?

Once again, incredible coincidence that the most qualified candidate for the job happens to be a former player for the organization. Weird that hockey is the only sport that this happens in.

And Don Waddell is the President and GM.

With all due respect to guys like Waddell, Dudley and Brindamour..

There are so many more qualified guys out there...Waddell has a pretty good history with Atlanta, albeit not winning much..Then he was a scout with the Pens..But what else has he done the last 10 years other than scout

ugh
I have for years tried to figure out how it is that Waddell manages to keep his spot in Carolina. He must be way better in person than he appears on camera, or like.... in his body of work as a hockey man.

I can get behind Brind'Amour, since he's paid his dues as the assisstant for a few years, and guys seem to really respond to him based on what I read. I'm hoping he's learned some of the better tricks of the the Peters school of hockey thought, I think Peters is a very good coach who will really prosper in Calgary. (as soon as the lines are out, Im betting the over on CGY WIN totals, and betting on them to make playoffs)

I dont know, if you cant make the playoffs for so many years, I guess change is good. But for me, the real problem is the roster, and all we're doing is just changing the puzzle pieces that already fit well. A better goalie, and a top line C, and this team is playoff bound. (easy to say I guess, since everyone prob wants a top line C)

This Skinner trade is a head scratcher..Obviously as a "hockey" trade its brutal..Then you look at economics..He has one year left on his contract, ok but the return isnt very good..Maybe at deadline it would be much better?

Confusing..

I believe he also had a NMC which likely adds to the difficulty in trading him.

The John Tavares factor may entice sellers to sell earlier than later.

What are the Hurricanes doing? I thought with the whole management change they were trying to win..Or are they dumping? They have a pretty good defensive back end..But is Faulk leaving..

Who are the centres Staal, Rask and?

Scott Darling is the starter? Mrazek?

They have tons of cap space, but no one to spend it on..

Not necessarily looking to win this season but building one.

Staal, Rask and Necas

1a and 1b... likely hoping competition leads to better goaltending

I liked the Dougie Hamilton trade a lot for them. I think they are still set up well to succeed this year if they can get some decent goaltending from somebody.
