Hurricanes Update


A few updates for you from Carolina.....

-The deal reportedly on the table to send Frantisek Kaberle to... well, anywhere, has been put on hold as a result of my next point,

-Niclas Wallin is rumoured to be returning to Sweden. There is the posibility of Wallin's contract being purchased by a club in his native Sweden (don't ask me how this works.) Obviously, if Wallin were to be allowed to return to Sweden, this would help clear cap space, HOWEVER, it would not clear up enough to get the Canes below their self-imposed cap. Therefore, should Wallin go, I see Kaberle being packaged up with another player to get a solid, defensive d-man.

-Jeff O'neill will be attending Hurricanes training camp. This makes sense for a few reasons. JR wants to make sure that O'neill still has the ability to play at this level before he commits a contract to him. Should O'neill show some promise, JR will likely give him a contract, partly as an insurance policy if Matt Cullen or Brandon Sutter are not ready to compete this season.

-Only one players health is in question this off-season, Matt Cullen. Apparently he is still recovering from his latest concussion, and this is likely the reason that Drayson Bowman was signed so early... If neither O'Neill or Cullen are solid enough to start the season, Drayson Bowman will.
