Hurricanes looking for a cheap defenseman (Ryan Whitney & Ron Hainsey)

Josh Rimer ‏@JoshRimerHockey 2m
Hearing Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford is focusing on landing a defenseman who takes less $. That's his #1 priority right now & nothing else.

Well....Mark Fayne would be good but I don't see Devils moving him for anything less than top 6 winger.

1.3 million dollar cap hit and he's 25 and a top 4 D.... 1 year left on his deal

Potter can be made available for the right price.

maybe lowball Ryan Whitney. He's probably getting desperate at this point.

If Hawks want to roll with a rookie in #7 spot (Someone like Ryan Stanton)

Sheldon Brookbank at 1.25M could be option for Canes (Can play on there 3rd pairing)

Is this JR tyring to shed salary to bring the mystery man in? If so, It's either Pitkanen or Gleason that's on the way out.

If Pitkanen is moved out, the new guy is going to have to be someone with at least SOME offense to his game.

Cheap dman? Fayne? Demers? Stuart?

I hope it's a right-handed dman, so Sekera can move to his natural side.

What type of defenseman are the Hurricanes in need of? My guess is that Alec Martinez is on his way out of LA and Carolina might be a good fit if they want a mobile defenseman.

Doesn't make a lot of sense, unless JR plans on moving a defenseman he already has.

Pitkanen - Faulk
Gleason - Sekera
Harrison - Komiserek
Murphy/Bellemore

Unless addressing that 7th defenseman spot is a "#1 priority", I call BS.

RHD or LHD? I'm assuming bottom pairing. Winnipeg has kulda. Postma and Redmond available.

He's probably looking to trade Pitkanen and/or Gleason for younger, cheaper versions of themselves.

IE: Good luck with that.

I was just going to say this. With Muzzin signing the two-year deal I'd say this gaurantees AMart on the trading block.

This could be JR's way to shed some salary for the mystery guy. One of either Pitkanen or Gleason would be leaving, IMO.

Its also scary they could be trying to clear space for this "Big name FA" who approached them when they also have 5+ million in cap space

yep, this is basically "take Joni or Tim off our hands, please. Oh and give us a younger version while you're at it"

Probably JR's probably going to need a nice kicker to get this one to work, especially given their cap hits. Good dmen, but overpaid by a nice bit each.

That's the only thing that would really make sense here. Otherwise there's no sense in cutting back on salary at D.

Pitkanen is coming off a major injury, can't see him going anywhere at his salary.

That means JR is most likely shopping Gleason. Everyone else is already on a value contract.

This would seem to reinforce the speculation that the "mystery man" is/was Hainsey.

Best bang for your buck d-man in the league - Andrew MacDonald of the Isles. 20+ minutes for $575K ($550K cap hit). Not sure he's available, but he is a pending UFA. With the multitude of defense prospects for the Isles, he could be shipped off at the trade deadline. Not sure about right now though.

I could see him trying to flip Gleason for a cheap-but-solid third line forward, then moving on Hainsey (regardless whether Hainsey is really the mystery player) to try and get him on a bargain contract.

Wonder what canes fans think about this:
Move Pitkanen to make space for the Mystery man (not sure what pitkanen would get, possibly a younger D-man) and then move Ruutu for Fayne, I think the mistery man is Jagr or Grabovski, so:

Tlusty-Staal-Semin
Mystery-Staal-Skinner


Fayne-Faulk
Sekera-Gleason

pretty good tbh.
