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. His name plate says “New Guy” and I really hope that’s what it says on his jersey until his gets in.  Liles was traded for Tim Gleason and a prospect in a trade of underachieving big contract...

‘Canes shelve Gleason again

There is some conjecture surrounding the injury Carolina Hurricanes’ oft-injured defenseman Tim Gleason that, if coach Kirk Muller’s time table for his return is accurate, would cause Gleason to miss three more games. The oft-injured alternate captain has been forced to the shelf three different times this season, limiting Gleason to just seven games played – missing ten games...

Can Tim Gleason rebound this year?

Tim Gleason's status as the team's main shutdown defenseman is one thing that has remained constant for the Hurricanes in recent seasons. He is taxed with a big workload every year and is usually praised for doing most of the grunt work on the Hurricanes blue-line because he is arguably the most physical player on the team and is always among the league leaders in blocked...

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...
