Justin Faulk suffers MCL Sprain (IR), Brett Bellemore recalled

12 posts in this topic

The Carolina Hurricanes have announced that Justin Faulk has suffered a second degree MCL sprain and will miss 2-4 weeks. The Canes officially placed Faulk on IR this afternoon.

In response to Faulk's injury, the Canes have recalled Brett Bellemore from the Checkers. Bellemore has no NHL experience.

If this doesn't force JR to make a trade, then I don't know what will.

Yeah something has to be done. He has no other option. The only bad thing I was hoping to give up McBain but we actually need him now. Probably draft picks.

Mike Komisarek is on waivers, the Canes aren't in any kind of cap trouble so I expect them to pick him up with Faulk hurt.

I just read that both Grags and Jordan are also hurt so we have no NHL experience in Charlotte. If Komi gets past the Islanders, he's ours.

Thats still a tough contract to swallow for a player like Komi when the cap is coming down and Semin is gonna cost a bunch to resign.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
