I realize that the actual trade deadline day was a quiet one for Ron Francis and the Carolina Hurricanes, but it was still a busy one covering it especially when life away from CandC got a bit busy. So today, I will clean up the cups laying around, sweep the floor and put a couple polls and questions up for the regulars.
Maybe after you chime in below, you can find my grade for Ron Francis on the trade deadline in Thursday’s Daily Cup of Joe.

What are your thoughts on the 2017 NHL trade deadline in general? Were you surprised that none of big name non-rentals were moved? What do you think of Ron Francis’ work?
With all of the non-rentals sitting pretty much where they started the deadline, the game pushes to June. Who do you think Francis should target for a big trade or 2 in June?
Who has topics for next week? With a full quarter of the season left but playoff hopes diminished to nearly nothing, it is going to take a group effort to keep the Coffee Shop open, active and hopefully even somewhat optimistic.
