Zac Dalpe in the top-six

Yesterday it was announced that Zac Dalpe will be called up from Charlotte and that he could be playing on the second line in Alexei Ponikarovsky's spot. This has gotten many fans excited because Dalpe is known as the type of player "who needs top-six minutes to be effective" and a big reason why his point total in the NHL is so underwhelming is because he's usually...

Todd Cordell: Breaking news: Devils acquire Alex Ponikarovsky from Carolina Hurricanes

We have some breaking news here tonight. According to Hurricanes beat writer Chip Alexander, the New Jersey Devils have acquired Alexei Ponikarovsky from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for defenseman Joe Sova and a 4th in the 2012 entry draft.

It begins....Alexei Ponikarovsky traded to Devils

Jim Rutherford has been a busy man this week as he made his second trade in four days by dealing winger Alexei Ponikarovsky to the New Jersey Devils for a 2012 4th round pick and defenseman Joe Sova. The timing of this trade may have been a bit weird, but I think it is safe to say that we all saw a move like this coming. Ponikarovsky is a pending unrestricted free agent and signed...

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Washington Capitals 1/20/12 Scoring Chances

Games like the one we saw at the RBC Center haven't happened much this year. Not only did we witness Cam Ward's second shutout of the season, but we also got to see the Canes put together one of their best team efforts in a 3-0 win over the Washington Capitals. It was their first regulation win against the Caps in over two years, so I'm sure this was a big monkey off...

Carolina Hurricanes vs.New York Islanders 1/21/12 Scoring Chances

For whatever reason, overtime and the shootout have been cruel to the Canes this year, especially on the road. Last night's, 2-1 OT loss to the Islanders was the ninth OTL for the Canes this year and they have still yet to win a road overtime game. Frustrating isn't it? This game was definitely up there as one of the more frustrating losses of the season because Carolina...

Hurricanes and Panthers exchange prospects

Most of us have been waiting for Jim Rutherford to make a few trades and he did so last night by dealing forwards Jon Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom to the Florida Panthers in exchange for forwards Evgeny Dadonov and AJ Jenks. This trade likely won't much in the grand scheme of things but it does make sense for both teams. Florida needs forward depth for their AHL team in San...
