    Their D is nasty. Justin Faulk, right now, is their #5D. That's just stupid funny.

    Wonder if they can move him for a genuine starter? Schneider?

    But why would NJ give up Schneider? The Devils, I'm assuming the FO assumes, are only going to get better.

    Schneider, Kinkaid, Lack. All on the roster.

    I don't get all the attention for de Haan. He doesn't make Carolina any better.

    They were first in shot attempts for and 2nd in shot attempts against last year. What actual difference can a mid-pair, 30-point defenseman make?

    He gives them three rock solid pairings and allows them the safety of trading Faulk for help.

    They had 3 solid pairs last year. It's Dougie who allows them to trade Faulk, not de Haan, he just fills the gap left by Hanifin.

    Slavin - Dougie
    Pesce - TVR
    Dahlbeck - McKeown/Fleury would be just as good as anything including de Haan.

    I don't think they should trade Faulk anyways. On a second pair he'd be devastating.

    Edit: Dahlbeck went to the KHL. But whatever.

    Well, that's a big contract for a guy just coming off of injury. Really thought he'd have to sign a "prove it" type of deal.

    Canes D really looking good. If they get a goalie they may finally be heading in a good direction. Not sure they need a Schneider level guy to dump money in.

    He is a good defensive defenseman and also plays a physical game and can play top 4 minutes. I wouldn’t have minded him here, they need someone who is physical on the backend.

    Why does Carolina need someone physical.

    Their goaltending was awful but they were one of the best defensive teams in the league last year, by shots.

    Pretty sure he meant the Rangers, not Carolina.

    I thought this guy wanted to be on the west coast? Guess the big money was comforting enough.

    Hamonic is the one who requested the trade, not de Haan.
