JOE CORVO NEWS

Cory Conacher and Joe Corvo Waived

Shortly after Bob McKenzie tweeted that Cory Conacher and Joe Corvo were seen meeting with Ottawa staff and explained that no trade was imminent, but both players could be put on waivers, TVA Sports’ Renaud Lavoie confirmed that both players had been put on waivers. It’s a bitter pill for Senators fans to swallow. Cory Conacher has not even been claimed by another team...

Senators' Corvo hopes to reach 1,000 games

You might want to sit down for this: In Monday's game against the Flyers, Joe Corvo became the 45th player to record 300 shots on goal as a Senator. Honest. "Oh really? Fourty-five? That's cool," the veteran defenceman said when informed of that little piece of organizational trivia the next morning at First Niagara Center. "It's nice to leave your mark...

Luck vs. futility on the power play

I've been playing the "bad luck" card to explain most of the Hurricanes struggles last year because a lot of the team's struggles were out of their own control. The Canes were destroyed by injuries, had scoring issues despite leading the NHL in 5v5 shots per game, received sub-par goaltending for half of the year and lost all but two games that went to extra time...

Has Ron Hainsey’s NHLPA lockout ‘bad cop’ role blackballed him in free agency?

There have been roughly 46 unrestricted free-agent defenseman that have signed new contracts during the NHL offseason ranging from popular targets like Mark Streit to hired guns like Joe Corvo. Ron Hainsey 32 was a popular target back in July 2008 when he signed a 5-year $22.5 million deal with the Atlanta Thrashers after two strong seasons as a puck-moving defenseman with the Columbus...

Joe Corvo Makes Ottawa Comeback Tour

As per Doni B the Sens have brought back Joe Corvo for his second stint in the nation's capital on a one-year, $900,000 deal. Corvo's 2 years here weren't exactly glamorous as his dumb turnovers and poor defensive play never went unnoticed among fans, and didn't get along well with the media, earning himself the nickname "Uh-Oh" Corvo. He didn't really...

Storm Aftermath: Joe Corvo

There was an audible loud groan from the Hurricanes fanbase on July 1, 2012 when the team signed Joe Corvo to a one-year deal. Seeing how this was Corvo's third tour of duty with the Hurricanes, most fans knew what to expect with him and they were expecting the worst. Corvo takes more criticism than he deserves for his on-ice performance, but he was far from an ideal signing...

Craig Anderson makes filthy glove save on Joe Corvo

On a night that will mostly be remembered for the five fights that occurred, Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson stacked the pads and made a filthy glove save on Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Joe Corvo.  Corvo had half the net open and Anderson just absolutely robbed him.  The save kept the Senators two goal lead alive en route to their 3-2 victory.

Carolina defeats Toronto in homecoming game

Tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs had the makings of being one of those old fashioned, high scoring run-and-gun style contests where the winner would be determined by who had the last shot on net.

Joe Corvo 2012-13 Season Projection

One of the top priorities for Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford this summer was to acquire a "veteran defenseman." When he said that, I thought he was going to try to sign someone like Greg Zanon, Carlo Colaiacovo, Scott Hannan or Michal Rozsival to replace the departing Bryan Allen. The Canes needed someone who could play top-four minutes and kill penalties to fillt he void...

Tim Gleason's workload and future defense partner

Judging the quality of play of a shutdown defenseman in the NHL is always difficult because a lot of people still are not sure how to judge them yet. Regular boxcar stats like plus-minus are obviously terrible for this but advanced stats can also be misleading because one defenseman might appear to be better than another because he has played well on a poor team. Thus, there are...

After signing Joe Corvo and missing out on the Ryan Suter sweepstakes, Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford stated that he likes where the team's defense is right now and doesn't plan to make any other signings this off-season.

Hurricanes Sign Joe Corvo

Going into free agency this year, there were two moves that I hoped Jim Rutherford would make. First, I wanted him to put a lot of focus on players who would give the Hurricanes a good bargain for his money. This meant looking for free agents who wouldn't cost a lot but had decent upside and could provide a decent amount of value. In addition to that, I wanted Rutherford to sign...
