Found August 14, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
When the Carolina Hurricanes snatched Alexander off the free agent market for a nearly risk-free 1-year trial contract, Canes fans were generally pleased. The summer of pulling off an aggressive draft day trade for Jordan Staal followed by seizing the opportunity to sign another elite forward in Semin seemed very unCanes-like and unRutherford-like. I was a big fan of the 1-year low-risk Semin si...

Teams similar to the Hurricanes

The 2013 Carolina Hurricanes were a very strange team. They finished with a lottery pick despite being a positive team in terms of even strength puck-possession and managed to do it while playing behind one of the most porous defenses in the NHL.

Matt Karash: Scouring the remaining free agent options

The sound bites from the executive office at PNC Arena during the second half of the summer do not suggest any big additions to the current Carolina Hurricanes lineup before training camp.
