FINALLY! My darkest fears of missing the chance to see how it all turns out after a busy and aggressive offseason to make a big long-term addition in Jordan Staal, but also a potentially equally significant addition with a 1-year deal in Alexander Semin. I called the Semin signing about 12 hours before it happened and am on record as loving the deal. I fully acknowledge that it could be a b...

Who will be at the Hurricanes training camp?

Anybody who has been following the Charlotte Checkers during the lockout knows that the team has more than a few guys on the roster who could possibly be in the NHL as soon as the new CBA is ratified. The Checkers currently have five players with at least 10 goals and the same amount with at least 20 points in less than 40 games. The best part of it is that most of these players...

Hurricanes off-season review and outlook

Before the lockout put everything on hold for the last 113 days, the Carolina Hurricanes made a few very interesting moves this off-season and were expected to be one of the more improved teams in the league.

It also helped that their game on Sunday against the Norfolk Admirals was held at the PNC Arena so more fans, coaches and members...

Other possible camp invites

On Monday, I went over some of the players from within the Carolina Hurricanes organization who may receive an invite to training camp next week and there are more than a few who are worthy of an invite. As if things weren't going to be crowded enough, GM Jim Rutherford has also stated his intention to add another player to the mix as soon as possible. At this point of the off...

Five things to know about the CBA, and how it will affect the Penguins

  #dregerface saved the season, by the way.   The last time we were all having a hockey convo it was sometime last June when the Pens traded Jordan Staal. It feels great to be back. We haven't been this excited since Christoper Lloyd didn't die in Back to the Future.   What will the schedule be? When will the season start? What is the cap? ...
