Not only was "Semin sucks defensively" a lie, but it was hilariously about as far the truth as possible.

Also, Staal seems motivated to actually play defense.

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.

Also, Daniel Winnik.
ah ok thanks for the explanation. i figured there was some pairing change i somehow failed to recognize.

and yeah, i kinda was like wtf when i saw his name so high up there.

Now we just need to acquire the third Sedin twin, and we'll be good.

Yes, that was intentional.

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

Nick Petrecki on waivers today. He was a popular choice for the Canes to take in 2007. Could be worth a look.

If Sangs didn't have to pass through waivers I'd be all about it.

Certainly couldn't hurt. We're definitely lacking physicality and grit from the blue line, so I don't see a reason for JR to not at least attempt this. If worst comes to worst, he doesn't impress the management if he gets game action, and gets put back on waivers for SJ to re-claim him and send him to Worcester.


EDIT: Ignore previous edit. Didn't realize we were at 22.

I know they typically don't, but they can carry 1 more skater right now can't they? They've only got 22 in Carolina.

Yeah we can pick up an extra. I just don't see us carrying 8 dmen again any time soon. Not unless Westgarth and Nodl are constantly healthy scratches and we start playing Sangs on the wing ala Joslin.

Harvard's season ended with a loss to Dartmouth in the ECAC tournament on Sunday. Not a surprising move.

Hopefully that means he won't be long for signing an ELC.

Indeed, I'd love to see what this kid can do at the pro level. Might be a year or two before he's up here, but goodness knows Charlotte can use anyone with a pulse right now.

When do the OHL playoffs start? Have to think once Plymouth is bounced Mahalak will be on his way to Charlotte, no?

In a few weeks I think, London doesn't have any more home games because the world figure skating championship is here, so it's gotta be soonish

Looks like the regular season for the OHL ends March 17.

Also, Cornell advanced in the ECAC and will play Quinnipiac (top seed) in a best of 3 from 3/15-3/17. If they lose, we could see Andy Isles signed as DaveG suggested in the thread about Ward's MCL injury.

Any other names that might get an NHL after the NCAA season is over? I don't follow it at all

Eric Hartzell, Quinipiac's goalie, is the prize of the NCAA UFA class this year IMO. Casey DeSmith from UNH I'm also fairly high on. Andy Iles is a semi-known quantity, former USNTDP product playing at Cornell who was at our prospects camp this past year. None of those 3 would be a surprise signing to me.

Up front I believe Austin Czarnik (Miami) is UFA eligible now. Former NTDP prospect and cousin to Robbie. Steven Whitney (BC), prototypical midget scoring machine from them. Ryan Walters (Nebraska-Omaha) is probably the one guy doing the most with the least around him up front.

Couldn't tell you on dmen this year, haven't heard of any top UFAs in that regard. Maybe George Hughes, but I haven't seen SLU play.

Dave, how can you forget Dan DeKeyser out of Western Michigan?! I think he's probably the class of this group. People were all over him last year at this time thinking he'd leave a year early. I can't imagine the hype has gotten any less significant.

In fairness, it's assumed by everyone with a pulse that he is unofficially officially a Red Wings prospect. Stranger things have happened, but I doubt he ends up anywhere else.

I would also keep an eye on Nate Schmidt out of Minnesota. High skill, high production Junior defenseman for the Gophers.
