True but if the competing teams trade us some salary back then it is possible.

Agreed. Let Tinordi play!

Time to trade Markov, Gionta, and maybe Pleks? We would get fair value and it wouldn't put us too far behind the never ending 're-build'. Playoff teams would welcome them with open arms.

My mistake - made it to the cup finals and lost to Detroit. More from Wikipedia After Peter Karmanos purchased the Hartford Whalers, Maurice followed Karmanos to coach the Whalers (later the Carolina Hurricanes) of the NHL in 1995, at the remarkably young age of 28. Throughout much of his tenure, he was the youngest active coach in the NHL. The high point of his NHL career came in the 2001–02 NHL season, when the Hurricanes reached the Stanley Cup finals, losing to the Detroit Red Wings. After coaching 604 regular season games, he was let go by the Hurricanes in 2003 when the team started the first 20 games 8–12. Under Maurice the Hurricanes achieved three winning seasons from 1998–2002. On June 24, 2005, he was hired to coach the Toronto Marlies, after the team had relocated from St. John's, Newfoundland. In the 2005–06 season, the Marlies qualified for fourth playoff spot in their division. They were subsequently eliminated by the Grand Rapids Griffins in the first round. Maurice reached several coaching milestones during his first season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, registering a career-high in wins (40) and points percentage (.555). He also earned his 300th NHL victory March 6, 2007 versus Washington and coached his 750th NHL game March 27, 2007 versus Carolina. On May 7, 2008, Maurice was fired by interim Maple Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher, after missing the playoffs for two seasons in a row. On December 3, 2008, Maurice was re-hired by the Hurricanes, selected to take over for Peter Laviolette (for whom Maurice had been fired five years prior) as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes. On November 28, 2010, at age 43, Maurice became the youngest person to reach 1,000 NHL games coached. Maurice was fired by the Hurricanes for a second time on November 28, 2011, after the team began the season with a record of 8-13-4.

Pleks seems to rarely pass to Cammy too

Does Paul Maurice speak french? Send Martin upstairs. Maurice has won a cup with Cole!

He has never had a really good goalie so I would argue that was his worst problem in the playoffs. Maybe out coached but Jacques MArtin doesn't have master status in the playoffs yet and he's coached for decades!

The Diaz, Emelin, and to a certain extent Weber playing time is proving to be a weakness. We can't keep leads because the good teams keep pressure on them and they can't handle it and cough it up or can't clear and goals happen.

Does Boudreau speak french? If he can then Martin can be sent upstairs and Bruce could coach. Our players have stopped listening to Jacques aussi.
