The defenseman spent 13 seasons in the NHL with seven different teams, including three with Buffalo. During his first year in Buffalo, the Sabres captured the President's Trophy, but Spacek improved from an offensive standpoint the next two years. Spacek went from 21...

Sunday Morning Hockey Notes Out Of Boston

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, • Before the start of free agency, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he would examine the post-July 1 trade market. So far, there hasn’t been much that’s caught Chiarelli’s attention. On a 1-10 scale, Chiarelli termed his trade chatter between 1 and 2. “It’s really quiet right now,” Chiarelli said. “I’m not forcing...

Carolina Hurricanes Scoring Chances by Defense Pairings

Unlike the forward lines, the Hurricanes did less juggling with their defense pairings and had a few units that stayed together for most of the season. Injuries to Jay Harrison and Joni Pitkanen caused some of the pairings to be switched around but for the most part, the Hurricanes kept their defense pairings the same for portions of the year. Tim Gleason & Bryan Allen handled...

Jaroslav Spacek 2011-12 Scoring Chances

If there is one positive thing to take away from the Tomas Kaberle fiasco last, it is that Jim Rutherford was able to dump off his contract on then Montreal Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier without giving up much of anything. All the Hurricanes had to do was take on the expiring contract of 37 year old defenseman Jaroslav Spacek in return and this deal ended up being more than just a...

Jamie McBain 2011-12 Scoring Chances

After a solid rookie season, Jamie McBain began this year in the press box and had to earn his playing time with seven other defensemen also on the team. It didn't take long for him to be inserted back into the lineup and he had quite a wild year to say the least. With his usual defense partner, Joni Pitkanen, being on the IR for most of the season, the coaching staff had a tough...

Slim playoff hope for Carolina Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have nine games remaining and it's time to start considering when they might be eliminated from playoff contention unless there's an incredible sprint to the finish. "We have a bunch of guys now who are just scratching and clawing," coach Kirk Muller said. "They've adjusted and they're playing for each other. It's all sacrifice to...

Kirk Muller, Jaroslav Spacek & Jamie McBain

If you have been keeping up with the scoring chance recaps, one thing you will notice is that Jamie McBain & Jaroslav Spacek have been the team's "highest rated" defensemen in about six of the last seven games. These two are also leading the defense corps in terms of possession metrics and are currently the only defensemen on the team with scoring chance percentages...

Jaroslav Spacek Has Interest in the Boston Bruins

Jaroslav Spacek, currently a defenceman playing for the Carolina Hurricanes, could find himself in the black and gold of the Boston Bruins next season. According to Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, the Bruins took a strong run at acquiring the 38-year-old from the Hurricanes prior to the NHL’s trade deadline, but Carolina’s asking price was too high. But that’s not the...

Southeast deadline winners, losers

Carolina Hurricanes: Push The majority of the Southeast teams stood pat on trade deadline day, and the Hurricanes were no exception. Carolina has all but been eliminated from the postseason, and so many expected the Hurricanes to be sellers, with Bryan Allen and Jaroslav Spacek named as possible trade targets. But both Allen and Spacek remain Hurricanes -- for now. The 'Canes...

Today and July 1st are the only two days that I blog about teams other than the Rangers. It's...

The Hurricanes at the deadline

Over the next few days, I am going to look at each team in the Southeast division and determine what kind of moves they could be making as the trade deadline approaches. We've already seen a few deals go down the last few days and have an idea of what the market looks like, so I am sure that things will get interesting soon. What I am going to do is look at the situation each...

Hurricanes Weekly Report 1/31 - 2/5

This was certainly a strange week for the Canes when you compare their shot data to scoring chances because while they were heavily outshot this past week, they actually outchanced their opponents overall. A large reason for this is because of the 47-save shutout they had against the Bruins last Thursday. That was a game where they were outshot by a wide-margin but a lot of the Bruins...
