Was today the Trade Deadline, or the Sabra Trade Deadline? We know it happened, and we’re pretty sure it was good, but it was good like a Camry is good; glad you have it, but it’s not making you jump for joy. The Canes did about what was expected, and as expected, we have Luke DeCock from the News and Observer join us to break it all down. Also, Mr. Workrate joins us to discuss all things Tlusty. In the end, much like the trade deadline, we are underwhelmed by our beer review. Doesn’t matter how meh the deadline was, we always have fun, and we appreciate your listening. So, sit back and let this one flow over you. It’s a podcast with LIKE Sony guts.
Since the Canes last took the ice on Tuesday, they’ve made a couple roster moves that perhaps you’ve heard about. With half of the top defensive pairing gone, how would Faulk and his new partner play? Now that Tlusty is in Winnipeg, who would fill his constantly changing role? Would Cam Ward turn heel and smash the silver stick over Francis’ back and reveal a San Jose jersey? All these questions and more would be answered slightly after 7pm Friday night in the PNC Arena!
Rej and Tlusty have packed their bags a few days earlier than expected. David Clarkson is a Blue Jacket, and Jagr now has more casinos to visit. This trade deadline kicked off a few days early, and man has it been interesting. Join us, along with Carolina Hurricanes Lord and Director of the Interwebs Michael Smith as we discuss trades, what’s next for the Canes, and how we got to 12-7-3 on the new year. We had fun recording it, we hope you enjoy listening, and damn the snow for our audio quality!
Well, you knew it was coming.
With the Canes safely out of playoff contention and the team unable to come to terms with their two biggest pending free agents, we knew that there was going to be player movement before the March 2nd deadline. We just didn’t know it’d all take place in one day, with the Canes shipping winger Jiri Tlusty to Winnipeg and defenseman Andrej Sekera to Los Angeles in two deals announced a little over an hour apart yesterday afternoon. In exchange, the Canes receive two draft picks from Winnipeg and a draft pick and a defensive prospect from Los Angeles. Continue reading Canes Make Two Trades – Now What?
It is exciting times in CanesNation. The Trade Deadline is just two weeks away. Are you embracing the change or fearing it? We can tell you that Steve Dangle and Maple Leafs Nation are embracing the tank and ready to lose in Raleigh tonight! Steve drops by to talk the matchup. Also, we are joined by Yahoo’s own Sean Leahy who drops some knowledge on us regarding the national view of our trade targets, Ron Francis, and is there such a thing as home ice advantage. We close the show with a beer that just begs to be consumed with a piping hot side of fajitas. Thanks for listening folks, we appreciate it!
For those of you who were pining for the return of the December version of YOUR Carolina Hurricanes (looks around… sees no one), last night was just for you. Despite outshooting Anaheim by a better than 2 to 1 margin, the Canes lost the game by that very score. And there was this:
The first shoe has dropped on the 2015 trade market w/ Buffalo making a splash and acquiring Evander Kane. What does this mean for the Canes hopes of acquiring value for their UFAs, particularly Sekera and Tlusty? Mike Maniscalco from WSMS and 99.9 The Fan join us to discuss these topics and more. Thanks as always to our great sponsor @TaxiTaxiRaleigh for making sure this program hits the airwaves.
