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 on. Looking at their depth chart, they still have to fill at least two bottom-six spots and the position doesn't really matter since they have plenty of guys within the organization who can play both center and wing. With a little under $6 mil. in cap space remaining, the Canes should be able to fill those two spots without much trouble if they can find a good bargain. However, things get a little dicey if they decide to splurge, which is very possible.
There were some rumblings about the Hurricanes looking to bring in a "big" free agent on a one year deal for about $3-3.5 mil. and that ope...

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...
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...
via Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
The Senators have answered their desire for a veteran defenceman with a blast from the past.
The team has come to terms with Joe Corvo, an unrestricted free agent who played for Ottawa from 2006-2008. Corvo, who scored six goals and 11 assists in 40 games with the Carolina Hurricanes last season, was signed to a one-year deal.
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...
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 [...]
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...

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.
