    Goalie Flame War

    Ned/UFA in Detroit next year. No need to re-sign Greiss when you can get the same or better out of a younger and most likely cheaper UFA goalie. I wouldn't want a backup with no big league experience like Mann or JVP, but they would work for the minor affiliate teams. Ned will only have one full season of NHL experience by then (not counting his callup stints in Carolina). Still need a proven backup for him IMO. Fulcher is doing good this year. He was promoted to GR, Brattstrom was sent to Toledo. Swap is working out well. If Fulcher gets more playing time, he could make a case for the starting job in GR next year. Pickard is worth keeping around in some capacity as well at his cheap salary. I'd like to see Cossa in Toledo, but no reason to rush him when they don't have to. Yep. He is a more than capable backup or 1B if he can get some consistancy going.

    Making an NHL team out of Ken Holland's 1st Round Picks

    Hasek gets credit for the Hasek trade. Holland expected to go into 2001/02 with Osgood until Hasek told his agent he wanted to go to Detroit and to make it happen.

    2021 Draft

    What about Nabokov's development at 18 compared to Tretiak's?

    lol i dont mean you. And ya, the compensation for Bert would have to be something Stevie couldnt refuse. Bert is a very important part of the team. Like you said, he brings elements no one else does consistantly, and is always in the chase for team leader in goals, assists, points. Yep. May as well...

    So the Canes traded Detroit Nedjedelvic for a 3rd. Rights to Bernier amounted to nothing. I saw they signed Andersen (2 years, $4.5 mill per) who lost the starter job in Toronto to Campbell and Raanta(2 years, $2 million per) who played a whole 12 games last year and looked horrible. Mrazek to Toronto for 3 years, $3.8 mill per. Reimer to SJ for 2 years, $2.25 mill per. Way to torpedo a great thing ya had going, Canes.

    It WAS. Been awhile now. Trading Bert would be stupid, but that's my opinion. lol they need him for Grand Rapids/ Toledo.

    I dunno why he has such an obsession about trading Bertuzzi, either. Pretty much every trade pkg he dreams up starts with Bertuzzi. This board has gone woke.

    7/23 GDT - 2021 Entry Draft

    All true, guess they just do things differently in Carolina. Horrible asset management. Bernier still hasn't signed with them, and may not. lol

    Cholowski Sucks

    I laughed when Seattle took him. Not like our unprotected list was chock full of gems, though. Bye Dennis.

    7/23 GDT - 2021 Entry Draft

    The Ned trade was even more of a steal than Bishop. Bishop was given up on by St. Louis and didn't seem to be in Ottawa's long term plans. After the playoffs Nedeljkovic had, I thought for sure the starting spot was his to lose. Carolina had brought him along slowly since he was drafted, never pushed him too hard until they felt he was ready. They even protected him from Seattle. Everything pointed to Mrazek or Reimer leaving. The trade is such a shocking steal that I still can't see why Carolina would do it. They don't have anyone better in waiting.

    Yeah, I can just imagine how badly Canes fans are losing their s*** over the trade. I felt we still needed a goalie pick or two in this draft though, and Yzerman pulled another great move outta nowhere in getting the Dman he wanted 6th and then trading up to 15th to snag Cossa and address the pipeline issue. Looking much better in goal than we were a few days ago, that's for sure. Vaz was a hell of a pick by Yzerman in Tampa. That was the pick Holland traded him for Kyle Quincey, so it was only right that Vaz turned out to be one of the best in the world.

    I wouldn't have been against it if we needed him. But Yzerman pulled an Yzerman and traded Bernier for Nedeljkovic before he could leave on the 28th.
