Evening Line

When asked by a reader if she really hates the Flyers... You just have to understand a few things: In addition to liking the Rangers, I'm a Mets and Giants fan, which means I am preconditioned to dislike and distrust the Phillies and Eagles. I grew up about halfway between New York City and Philly, so the allegiances of my peers were split, which made for a more intense...

Carolina's best and worst defense pairings, 2013

Carolina fans should know this well but it takes a lot of trial and error to get the right line combos and defense pairings. Some trios click instantly (see the first line Tlusty-E.Staal-Semin) while others take more time to gel (see almost every bottom-six unit). This was especially the case last season with the team cycling through so many different players and they were basically...

Bobby Sanguinetti & Brett Bellemore's new contracts

A couple weeks ago, Chip Alexander broke the news that the Hurricanes will let their potential unrestricted free agents test the market and they aren't going to lose a ton of value by doing this. The only player who will be difficult to replace is back-up goaltender Dan Ellis and even then, they might be able to find someone of equal talent for a low cost with goaltender performance...

Storm Aftermath: Bobby Sanguinetti

A defense corps going through a rebuilding period can be painful to watch at times and it certainly was for the Hurricanes this year. The team has drafted a lot of defensemen in recent years and have added many other prospects through trades, so there has been a lot of new blood coming in an out of the Hurricanes blue-line. Most of these prospects are still very young and not ready...

Hurricanes Defense Usage and Performance

After doing a quick survey of Hurricanes fans, it's pretty clear that the number one concern for the team this off-season is improving the defense, and rightfully so because the Hurricanes blue-line had a ton of issues. They were one of the worst teams in the NHL at preventing shots on goal during 5v5 play, had an atrocious penalty kill and constantly gave up odd-man rushes and...

Larry Brooks at the New York Post speculates that it's a right leg injury. In an early indication of how bad it might be, the Rangers recalled Kris Newbury after the game. ...no idea what the injury...

Explaining Jamie McBain's recent struggles

After going most of the season without a collective scapegoat, Hurricanes fans seemed to have found one in defenseman Jamie McBain. The entire team is struggling right now, but he has been taking a lot of heat from the fans ever since Carolina went on their brutal losing streak. The hate reached a new high after his brutal showing against the Winnipeg Jets two weeks ago where he...

Who sits after Pitkanen returns?

The Hurricanes have a couple of decisions to make regarding their current defense corps and no, I am not talking about them making a trade. This issue is a little more immediate, as Joni Pitkanen will be returning to the lineup soon and the Hurricanes are going to have to figure out who will sit to make room for him in the lineup. The team started the year with seven defensemen on...

Hurricanes end losing streak with a comeback win over the Islanders

"Here we go again" was the phrase uttered by many Hurricanes fans after they saw their team fall behind early in the first period and were forced to play from behind yet again. Even more grumbles of frustration were unleashed later on that period when the Hurricanes were able to mount an attack but could not get anything past Islanders goaltender Kevin Poulin.

Tampa Bay strikes down Carolina 4-1

There are a lot of things I could say about the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. I could talk about how the Hurricanes, once again, got off to a slow start and allowed a goal on the first scoring chance of the game. Then, I could explain how they outshot Tampa Bay 36-26 but ended up losing because of being outplayed in the special teams department and getting...

The future of the Charlotte Checkers

Hockey was indeed alive and well in North Carolina during the lockout, as the Charlotte Checkers got off to one of their best starts in team history and have the second best record in the AHL at 23-11-2-3. Their performance during the lockout was very promising for the Hurricanes organization because most of Charlotte's top players were younger players who the Hurricanes drafted...

Hurricanes top 25 Under 25: #8 Bobby Sanguinetti

Bobby Sanguinetti is a player who has fallen on tough luck during his time in the pros. After being a first round selection by the New York Rangers in the 2006 NHL Draft and being an offensive stud during junior hockey, he has yet to make any sort of impact in the NHL. Part of the reason for this is because his game is pretty one-dimensional. As an offensive defenseman, Sanguinetti...
