JOHN-MICHAEL LILES RUMORS

John-Michael Liles is literally the "new guy"

Whooooo's that guy..... It's John-Michael! John-Michael Liles might not have Zooey Dechanel's bangs, but he's still the "new guy" on the Carolina Hurricanes.

John-Michael Liles traded to Canes, name plate says 'New Guy'

Looks like the Carolina Hurricanes made John-Michael Liles feel right at home after acquiring him from the Toronto Maple Leafs on New Year’s Day during warm ups for the Winter Classic.

Leafs trying to move John-Michael Liles

Something's gotta give in Toronto and it could give really soon. As it stands now the Maple Leafs have just under $5 million salary cap space and two players to re-sign -- Nazem Kadri and Cody Franson -- who won't be cheap.
