Hey, from the Hurricanes FB page, someone quoted JR as saying it's up to Mueller to decide if the Staal's will be on the same line or not. So maybe McKenzie was assuming Jordan was that 1st line forward JR wanted to pair with Eric. So there is still hope Jordan is our 2nd line center and we can go back to looking for just 1 more center since we have plenty of wings...


I heard what Rutherford had to say on it...

He said that they would think about it, the ultimate decision would be up to Muller and if they can acuire another winger and center that they would in all likely hood play Jordan with Eric.

By the way Eric played on the wing with Jordan as the center at the World Championships in Moskow. So it has been done before.

That makes more sense to do than sticking them together right away.

I agree, I mentioned to a few guys yesterday that acquiring Alexander Semin and Kyle Wellwood would go a long way to making us a contending team again.

I posted this depth chart yesterday.

Eric Staal - Jordan Staal - Alexander Semin
Jeff Skinner - Kyle Wellwood - Tuomo Ruutu
Jussi Jokinen - Jeremy Welsh - Jiri Tlusty
Patrick Dwyer - Tim Brent - Chad LaRose
Andreas Nodl
Anthony Stewart

Tim Gleason - Justin Faulk
Ryan Murphy - Jay Harrison
Joni Pitkanen - Jamie McBain
Derek Joslin

Cam Ward
Brian Boucher

Also in the mix... Drayson Bowman, Jerome Samson, Brett Sutter, Zac Dalpe, Zach Boychuk, Riley Nash, Bobby Sanguinetti, Victor Rask, and Justin Peters.

We have to find a different backup goalie. Boucher sucks ass.

Ain't that the truth, I would like Peters to be the backup, but he will walk in free agency.

You'll get your wish, at least for a while - he's out for 4-6 months with an upper body injury.
