Matt Karash: Initial thoughts on Tuomo Ruutu trade

Posting placeholder for comments while I write rest of blog... In what has been a tough season for Canes fans, today we get to wave goodbye to another liked player in Tuomo Ruutu. When the season started, who would have guessed that Tim Gleason and Tuomo Ruutu would be gone and Cam Ward more or less missing? I told someone a few days ago that after the 2001-02 Stanley Cup...

Matt Karash: Game #44: Dominant win vs. Toronto pushes Canes back into playoff position

For anyone who did not check in earlier today, I posted a Tim Gleason tribute for his return to Raleigh. You can find that in the archives if you missed it. Going into the week, the Carolina Hurricanes had won 4 straight and were looking at a reasonably normal Tuesday/Thursday/Friday schedule. Then the team spent nearly 48 hours in a hotel during the blizzard in Buffalo, missed...

Matt Karash: The Tim Gleason blog: Thank you!

Instead of my usual game preview, I will use this blog for something more important – a tribute of sorts to Tim Gleason who returns as a visitor after being traded on January 1. Only 9 days after being traded, the NHL schedule finds Tim Gleason getting ready in the visitors’ locker room and taking the ice in a blue and white Maple Leafs jersey. That is going to be incredibly...

Maple Leafs welcome new defenceman Tim Gleason to town

Call it a new episode of Glea. Everything was wonderously new for defenceman Tim Gleason on Friday, the city, his new teammates, the rink and the blue sweater. After eight years in Carolina, he was even flattered to be ganged by the Toronto media, not every Leaf’s favourite part of the day. “Usually there are just two of you,” he said of the routine in Raleigh. “This is...

John-Michael Liles is literally the "new guy"

Whooooo's that guy..... It's John-Michael! John-Michael Liles might not have Zooey Dechanel's bangs, but he's still the "new guy" on the Carolina Hurricanes. He even has the locker stall nameplate to prove it! Liles was acquired by the Hurricanes in a surprise move that sent Tim Gleason to Toronto. Liles got to take warm-ups with...

Saluting the saddest man from the Winter Classic

The Winter Classic is the highlight of the regular season in the NHL. It was an outrage when it was canceled last year thanks to the lock out. It was such a marquee event that the game broke a record for highest attendence on an NHL game. It hearkens back to a players youth, and provides a spetacle for viewers watching at home. Even people that aren't regularly hockey fans are...

John-Michael Liles traded to Canes, name plate says 'New Guy'

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...

Matt Karash: Thoughts on Tim Gleason for John-Michael Liles trade

I still do not see an official announcement by either team, but I guess if it is done enough for TSN/Bob McKenzie it is done enough for me... First, I thank Tim Gleason for all that he did in a Carolina Hurricanes uniform. He has always been a class act and a player that gave everything he could. For me, it feels weird to mix the moving forward why he is gone with the tribute...

Eklund: Gleason Could Be on Move Before Trade Freeze

I am hearing today that the on-the-outs Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Tim Gleason could be on the move before the holiday trade freeze. Talked to a source who said, "the offers aren't moving much on this player from what I gather but the interest is still there and it seems like the Canes and Gleason alike would like to get the inevitable deal done sooner rather than later...

Solving the Hurricanes defense logjam

The team has been the center of a lot of trade rumors lately and with there being 23 skaters and three goaltenders at practice now, there are bound to be some bodies moved soon.

The Oilers Could Use Some Defensive Help

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, Edmonton Oilers’ GM Craig MacTavish was on his cell-phone while his team was skating Thursday morning and while it could have been his lovely wife telling her hubby to stop for a loaf of bread on the way home, it may have been another GM talking about defencemen. Certainly, the Oilers could use an NHL veteran back there.... Here’s...
