Carolina's injury update from after today's practice:

Williams trades yellow for red

Canes forward Justin Williams traded his yellow jersey for a red one today at practice, meaning he has been cleared for contact drills -- another step in his recovery.

Williams had surgery for an Achilles tendon tear in September but is ahead of schedule in his rehab and has been skating with the team in workouts.

Defenseman Frantisek Kaberle continues to get in more work and closer to returning, but Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason missed practice today at the RecZone. Pitkanen took a hard shot Monday night in the 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.

"He got his bell rung," Canes coach Peter Laviolette said of Pitkanen. "He's day-to-day right now. He went to the doctors and they said just get an off-ice workout today and see how he feels tomorrow."

Laviolette said Gleason, who was injured Sunday against Nashville, also was day to day. While he said he doubted Gleason would return for the two games this week against Philadelphia, he said he would not rule it out.

Unfortunately, cheating is a big part of improving on faceoffs...and vets get a much larger margin for error on their cheating. Rod Brind'Amour cheats left and right without getting called for it.

I am sure they do and rightfully so......Just like Michael Jordan who basically traveled on every play, but was never called for it....and Gretzky who you couldnt sneeze on without getting a penalty.

Doesnt mean he needs to cry about it. Just improve (i.e. learn how to cheat) and as he is more established he will get the same benefits.

If he keeps scoring, Carter could carry around a teddy bear and cry all the time and I wouldn't care.

I wouldn't say that's crying about it, more a stating of a fact...and maybe planting it in some refs heads.

Maybe during that game he has a point, but he's been dreadful on faceoffs since entering the league. He's not exactly in a position to be calling guys out for their technique when he's lucky to win a draw against anyone.

That's a secondary issue to the fact that veteran (and good faceoff guys) cheat left and right. Not like he's discovering some mystery here, or stating something that others haven't said before.
