Montgomery's season is over. Canes have until June 1st to sign Montgomery or lose his rights. I dunno, he is a big kid and found a bit of offense playing in the USHL, I would say its 50-50 that he is signed by the Canes.

Montgomery is also a right shot, something in short supply in the organization.
Yeah, but it's got to come down to how he scouted at the OHL level and if the Canes think he'll grow into his game over time.

True. And he didn’t get a draft year season in the OHL because of the pandemic. The Canes found him at an OHL showcase. He looks like a stay at home guy, his offensive numbers don’t jump off the page. But well over 1 PIM per game in his last 2 years.

Montgomery was the overager, odd man out in London once they acquired future NHL first round pick defenseman Sam Dickinson in London and reinstated Logan Mailloux to bolster their backend, the Knights are two wins away from the OHL final, so other than the physical presence he brought, he was not a very effective OHL player. I cannot see the Canes being that enchanted with him moving forward.

Inside AHL Hockey has a 32 thoughts column and the first 10 are on the Canes/Wolves divorce. We’ve discussed the “veteran” rule before, where a team may only dress 6 players with more than 260 games of pro experience. But the league also has a rookie rule. A team has to have 4 rookies in the lineup every night. A rookie is defined as a player with less than 64 games of pro experience. If they don’t have 4 rookies in the lineup, it’s a forfeit.

Can’t we work out some deal to send our top prospects to the Coyotes for development? Or is their arena too small?

Coyotes only take players as a last resort, they’re mostly interested in taking contracts.

I missed what the beef is between the Wolves and the Canes. No playoff money to be had this year?

In short, the Wolves care more about competing for the Calder Cup than they do about anything else. Carolina had a down year in terms of the quality of prospects available and it sounds like they sparred a bit about adding AHL vets ... although the Canes eventually did spend a lot of money on that kind of player. Bottom line ... there's a reason that Chicago shuffles through NHL affiliates like a Vegas blackjack dealer. They're never happy for long, and never happy unless they're winning. And honestly, the NHL clubs have other things on their minds.

Easy fix would be for the Blackhawks to sign with the Wolves and have the Canes move to the Rockford IceHogs.

The Wirtz family owns the Blackhawks and the IceHogs so there would be nothing at all simple about that ... aside from mascot synchronicity of course

There is a reason of course that a lot of NHL teams have caved in and decided to own their own AHL affiliates. Who wants to play petty politics with the kind of people who own minor league franchises of any kind? Life is much too short for this kind of stuff.

Not sure why the Hawks would end up doing any better by the Wolves (according to them) than any of their other many recent partners, but this Ice Hog likes it:
