This is Fitz SELLING NJ, which is exactly what I said he needed to do! Well done Fitz! 

Question: how could we be pitching anything to Dougie now, when free agency hasn’t started?

Or is this just a general statement they are sending out?

Murray and Hamilton would be great.  And we need in Hamilton

Graves - Dougie
Murray - Sevs
Smith - Subbs

This is lookin good. But I cant imagine we will sign Murray for long term, and I believe he will take that deal on the market. I`m all in for returning Kulikov for 1-2 years deal.

Very interesting how Fitz will manage their defensive prospects and who will play on the right side.

He sent an e-mail to agents. It’s all in the article.

Yeah I got it now. The part about Dougie is just a fabrication.

Fridge confirmed NJ's interest in Hamilton on the draft show(according to other people).

Idk why he would wait so long and get this close to UFA without at least seeing what the market is going to offer and I wouldn't expect Waddell to be truthful if things were more 50/50 anyway.

Starts at 5:20

Talks FA period

There won't be the usual development camp this year, maybe something smaller in August but not confirmed

The prospect tournament in Buffalo is on, but Pittsburg won't be attending so it is Buffalo, Boston, & NJ.

Watch Hamilton just stay in that sh!thole. Would be typical.

I fvcking loathe that stupid franchise.

I'm  pretty nervous about this too cause we really need him.

But he's already in Carolina, they were in the playoffs and made a good push last year. And the taxes are a bit cheaper in Carolina but not sure if its enough to make a huge difference. Also they can offer that 8th year if they have to. But at the same time, if they were this close and really wanted it done... they might have get it done already

Hopefully Fitz can really sell him on our potential

If I'm him, I'm asking management why the hell they traded a promising goalie for Jonathan freaking Bernier....

Sure Mac has his ups and downs, and the Devils of the 2010s were a dumpster fire, but Carolina what direction are the Hurricanes going? It really is like trying to plot the path of a real one, you think you have a clue and then boom, it makes a hard right and parks right over you

Agreed.   I wouldn’t trust the prime of my career to a team owned by Tom Dundon

You mean the guy who said they would ‘never draft a defenseman in the first round’? Why not? 🤣

Lol exactly. I don’t understand that trade in the slightest. 

I hope Nedeljkovic goes on to win four Vezinas in a row just so I have another reason to laugh at Carolina.

keep Murray (given)

As a stopgap, Yandle on a 1-2 year deal

Kick the tires on Savard from Tampa, Martinez if Vegas doesn’t lock him up, and Ian Cole from Minnesota

You can kick the tires on a Martinez, but he’s gonna wanna play for a Cup contender, and should be in demand. Savard would be nice; he’s nothing flashy, generally a solid reliable stay at home guy. But he’s a guy who will also probably wanna play for a contender if given the choice.

Oh not saying any would willingly come here if there are better options, but the time for “oh they don’t fit our timeline” has to be over if we want to start transitioning from rebuild/bottom feeder to possible bubble team. We have to start getting back in the win column more than not and any vets with even multi-round playoff success/appearances should be on the radar
