another note.....we have 5 skaters (Staal, McBain, Pitkanen, Tlusty, Semin) in the top 30 in +/-. By comparison, TB has 3, Chicago has 3, Colorado has 3, SJ has 3....no one else has more than 3 players in the top 30 for +/-. now, that suspiciously looks like our top line + top pairing, except for McBain. Looking for Faulk, he is at Even while Joni sits at a +7....how does that happen? I though those 2 had been paired together since the first game (with special teams being the exception mostly). McBain is at a +3 even. Maybe i missed something, but im confused how those 2 can be so apart considering they have been on the ice together for the most part
For the past few games it's been Pitkanen-McBain and Gleason-Faulk. Those also happen to be the games in which the Hurricanes have actually started scoring (even-strength) goals, as compared to the initial fail involved when we had Pitkanen and Faulk together to start the season and scored a whopping two goals in two games.


Also, Daniel Winnik.
