    Perhaps the Cans disorganization should take a page from what the Colorado AVs did a year ago - they went from last to near the top in the Western Division with a total management and coaching change. And in the process the AVs were a team that was 'fun to watch' this season in spite of injuries to several key players.

    With Mr K as owner and JR hanging around as president, the Canes will never put a winner on th ice - all the current management wants to do is get YOUR MONEY and put a so-so team on the ice and let you know that they are world beaters!


    a loser organization led by a bunch of losers- guess what they lost again this year

    This team need a house cleaning from top to bottom. A new GM and coach are needed to set a tone and style of play that will be the standard for the team. More toughness and grit is needed as well as a quarterback for the power play. Anyone other than Lindholm, Faulk and Khoudobin should be available if the right trade value comes along. Cam Ward and that contract need to be gotten rid of by any means necessary. Time to rebuild from the ground up

    The whole organization, from top to bottom, is a mess. Because of the poor performances year after year, they have had top draft picks. These have basically not worked out. The team definitely hasn't improved with them. Their minor league teams fail to produce any quality depth.
    The owner isn't local and has no clue how to properly run a hockey organization. After missing the playoffs 7 of 8 years, he has the gall to say we need more patience?! Is he that stupid or just ignorant?
    The team, night after night, has poor puck handling, consistent breakdowns, no offensive flow and poor attitudes. I think we generally like most of the players, but a major overhaul is required.
    Season ticket sales will be at all time low, maybe Karmonas will understand that!

    I don't see Muller returning - he seems like a good guy, but I'm not sure the players have every bought into his system. Wonder if they'll give Jeff Daniels a shot this time around, not that he would be the answer, though. The Canes woes go deeper than the guy behind the bench; there's a lot rotten in Raleigh.

    Agree. In the draft, Rutherford has focused on picking small skating forwards like Skinner and small offensive-minded defensemen like Murphy. AT some point, they need to get some grit. For the life of me, I don't know why he can't see that. The answer isn't Ron Francis as GM. They need experience.

    The Canes have already dealt fan favorites, so they may as well do what they have to do to be a consistent playoff team - if that is possible. I somehow think E Stall will be with the team next year while Muller will be shown the door. Not sure what they'll do with Ward, considering his contract.

    Despite all these years of non-playoff hockey the team has not been able to draft competently to refresh the roster....that falls on the GM and the scouting organization.

    Couple that with an owner that is not as wealthy as others in the league (and sources of revenue are below league averages) and as such you get an investment profile that is below what this team needs.

    GM is case for Canes fans is to get a new owner as well.


    just like guys on the radio- a wholesale change would do everyone good.

    Its just like politics, people cry and cry for change, but when a candidate runs that might actually have a plan to make some changes, people will not vote for them. Senseless. May as well take the road of "status quo", and continue to go to the games and complain, or stay home and get some extra sleep.

    Gotta start with the disappearing captain. ES is a great player and should be part of a core but we need a captain who will bring the guts and determination and grit that will get us past this .500 play that has been the norm.
    If memory serves me correctly, the year we won it we were near the top in points in the conference - Go Lavi - but even the years we made the playoffs we were sneaking in as one of the last spots or were still just over .500 and won the division.
    Captain needs to change so ES can just play.
    Need to stop letting gritty tough Dmen like Seidenberg go to other teams
    Too soft seems to be the norm and too soft is going to keep us at .500 and always looking at golf in April

    The owners brought the outrage on themselves. Rutherford should have been gone years ago. They did their best imitation of the Detroit Lions (we're so close year after year, but won't do anything major to fix the problems). To top things off, they raised ticket prices and parking while expecting the fans to swallow it and grin.

    Missing the playoffs all but one season since 2006 is pathetic. If management thinks that will not cause fans to cancel season tickets, they shouldn't be employed.

    Go Wings!
