In my time of watching the Hurricanes, I have never seen us actually have a line that can play the puck possession game. One is brewing on the Staal-Semin line though.
yes, yes it is. they have been quite the pairing together. cant imagine it has anything to do with Eric's surge in play recently, can we? but watching Semin on the puck, he just doesnt give it up (mostly) which is amazing to see from a Canes fan perspective. Add that to Staal who is a force with the puck generally, and its like those 2 and whoever else is out there with them, and the puck just stays on their sticks, or at least stays in the O-Zone. McBain, Corvo, and Sangs have been the ones I have seen holding that blue line with great keep ins in the games ive watched, while Pits, Gleason, and Faulk have let a few easy ones squeak by. suprisingly
