Found July 09, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
First, as I have said before, what I express here is speculation, intuition, opinion, etc. I do NOT have access to any inside information nor do I have any contacts that get me access to legitimate rumors. So yesterday the Canes Twittersphere heated up following a spot by Canes GM Jim Rutherford on 99.9 The Fan yesterday afternoon. The summary version is that the Canes are reasonably close to...

Hurricanes Cap Crunch

Over the last few days, the Hurricanes did well with the limited cap space they had remaining by filling two roster spots for a combined $1.5 mil. Jim Rutherford did great work by making this happen, but there are still a couple of roster spots to be filled and the Hurricanes have some cap space to work with. The question is who should the Hurricanes use this remaining cap space...

Hurricanes re-sign Riley Nash for two years

The Hurricanes came to terms with one of their five restricted free agents today, signing center Riley Nash to a two-year, two-way contract. Nash spent most of the latter half of the season as the Hurricanes third line center, recording four goals & nine points over 32 games. This deal will pay Nash $550,000 in the NHL this year and $600,000 in next year while paying him $150...

Is Jaromir Jagr a fit for Carolina?

Every summer, you'll hear endless rumors about how teams are considering going after a big name free agent and most of them aren't worth paying attention to because they don't have much substance. This is especially true for rumors involving the Hurricanes this year with the team being tight on cap space and the free agent class being being thin. Despite that, Carolina...

Matt Karash: Strike while the iron is hot - Time to extend Justin Faulk

In minor Carolina Hurricanes news today, the Canes signed 2 depth defensemen with NHL experience to 2-way contracts to provide additional depth for 2013-14. Mark Flood is a familiar name who played with the Canes AHL affiliate a few years back before bouncing around. He is 27 years old and brings 39 games of NHL experience. Matt Corrente brings someone willing to drop the gloves...

Hurricanes sign Matt Corrente & Mark Flood to one-year deals

The Hurricanes added some more blue-line depth by signing defensemen Matt Corrente and Mark Flood to one-year, two-way contracts. Both will be paid $550,000 in the NHL while receiving different salaries in the AHL. More details on their contracts can be found in the Hurricanes press release here. This looks like a move to help Charlotte because both defensemen are seasonsed AHL...

Matt Karash: Building out the roster

Unless we get surprised by a trade for a higher-end defenseman, I think the Canes roster is pretty set on the back end and in goal. To kill time in the summer until we get ice at PNC Arena, we could debate pairings for hours, but order aside the 6 are Andrej Sekera/Justin Faulk, Joni Pitkanen/Tim Gleason, Jay Harrison/Mike Komisarek. Brett Bellemore and Ryan Murphy would provide...

Joe Corvo Returns To Canada’s Capital by   Steven Ellis

The Ottawa Senators have signed UFA D-man Joe Corvo to a one year contract. Corvo, who scored six goals and 11 assists in 40 games with the Carolina Hurricanes last season, returns to Ottawa where the reception may not be so big for the former Senator.   Not considered to be very strong in his own zone, he’s expected to start [...]

Joe Corvo Makes Ottawa Comeback Tour

As per Doni B the Sens have brought back Joe Corvo for his second stint in the nation's capital on a one-year, $900,000 deal. Corvo's 2 years here weren't exactly glamorous as his dumb turnovers and poor defensive play never went unnoticed among fans, and didn't get along well with the media, earning himself the nickname "Uh-Oh" Corvo. He didn't really...

Travis Yost: Is Joe Corvo Still Looking for Kyle Turris?

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators signed Joe Corvo to a one-year, $900k deal on Monday afternoon. Bryan Murray spoke about the veteran Corvo as a nice add for a blue-line in need of a right-handed shot. It seems to me the main reason why the team chose Corvo over the departed Andre Benoit, who signed with Colorado at the same price. And that'...
