This has been a very interesting off-season for the Pittsburgh Penguins, to say the least. They traded their 3rd line center Jordan Staal, a top six forward on most other teams, to the Carolina Hurricanes. Staal rejected a 10 year 60 million dollar contract from the Penguins prior to being dealt, only to accept the [...]

from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters, New Penguins center Brandon Sutter met with the local media today for the first time as a member of the Penguins.
He discussed is initial impressions of the Penguins, how he feels heâ€™ll be used by coaches and his famous hockey family.
At first, you were taken aback by the trade from the Hurricanes. Over a month later, how do you feel aboutâ...
Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July.Â Let's just start things off by saying Evgeni Malkin is sick. He scores goals, and makes moves that should not be able to be made. He has been on Julylights once already, for when he dangled a Colorado defenseman and goalie...
Although the Penguins probably will not be able to get him, it looks like Shane Doan will at least come to Pittsburgh and have the discussion. Not to mention, have a tour of the city and the team environment. The New Building wonâ€™t hurt either. That said, Shane wants to be in Phoenix, and Phoenix [...]

When the Hurricanes traded their first round pick to Pittsburgh for Jordan Staal, I was a little worried that they left a lot of talent on the board but they were lucky in the second round when forward Phil Di Giuseppe fell to them. Di Giuseppe (or PdG for short) was projected to be a late-first round pick by some scouts but he fell to the Hurricanes in the second round of his year...
The Carolina Hurricanes wanted to add one top-shelf forward this offseason. They got two.
By trading for Jordan Staal and signing Alexander Semin, the Hurricanes have sent a clear message: They're in it to win - now.
General manager Jim Rutherford said Friday it's hard to judge a hockey team during the summer but ''we are a much stronger team going into the season...
1) Anyone else get the sense that the Carolina Hurricanes are going to be significantly better next season? With Jordan Staal in the fold; with a scorer like Semin, regardless of the lack of completeness to his game; with Kirk Muller a year into his tenure?
This team has much more offensive depth, and with a goaltender like Cam Ward, a couple of more pieces on the backend could...

By trading for Jordan Staal and signing Alexander Semin, the Hurricanes have sent a clear message: They're in it to win -- now.
