Torts won’t peek at points, the book on Booth, a Dalpe dilemma

John Tortorella doesn’t look at statistics or standings or what challenges the opposition brings on any given night. For him it’s all about prepping the Vancouver Canucks. That’s fine. But the coach may want to peek at the packed Pacific Division that looks more crowded than an interstate freeway at rush hour. The top three teams advance to the playoffs and with two wild-card...

Storm Aftermath: Zac Dalpe

It feels kind of silly to review the season of Zac Dalpe because he played only 10 games for the Hurricanes and missed almost all of the month of March with the Charlotte Checkers. However, what was also silly was the fact that Dalpe only got 10 games in the NHL to begin with because his performance with the big club was pretty impressive. Yes, I know that his stat line of one goal...

Zac Dalpe deserves to be in the NHL

A little under four weeks ago, the Hurricanes made the decision to send Zac Dalpe down to the AHL to make room for Tim Wallace. Dalpe has been one of Carolina's best forward prospects for quite some time now but he has yet to make his mark in the NHL despite making the Hurricanes out of training camp for three years in a row.
