Found August 07, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Carolina Hurricanes forward Chad LaRose more or less disappeared after the Carolina Hurricanes' season ended, but (via Pro Hockey Talk's Jason Brough) LaRose explained his decision to skip his exit interview whe the Raleigh News & Observer's Luke DeCock managed to reach him on Monday: I spoke with Chad LaRose on Wednesday from his parents' home in Fraser, Mich., where he's spending some time right now. As I wrote Sunday, LaRose had been incommunicado since his contract with the Hurricanes expired, but we spoke for about 10 minutes about his past with the team, his departure and his future. LaRose's agent, Mark Guy, said Tuesday that he has had discussions with multiple NHL teams over the summer. "Nothing that has resulted in a contract yet," Guy wrote in an email, "but that is his and our goal." Regardless, LaRose said he plans to continue living in the Triangle, where he owns a custom-home business along with his brother-in-l...

Matt Karash: Jeff Skinner poll results + Who will play point on the power play?

First, here are the results as of Wed night from the Jeff Skinner poll that I did earlier this week: Question 1: If you were Canes GM, what would you do with Jeff Skinner? 33% - Keep him long-term. He should be a core part of the forward lines. 29% - Look to trade him now. Between the injury risk and big contract, the team is better served using his value to add a defenseman...

Matt Karash: Metropolitan Division opponent preview - 7 teams/7 sets of questions

Much has been written about the increased level of competition and the need for the Canes to dial it up a notch to be competitive against the big market teams from the former Atlantic Division. I will probably write another of these and address...
