Hearing Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford is focusing on landing a defenseman who takes less $. That's his #1 priority right now & nothing else.

Been told 2 guys the Hurricanes are talking to are Ryan Whitney & Ron Hainsey. They'll only sign 1 of them, & less then their asking for.

 

I'm not really a fan of Whitney, but Hainsey is a stud and very underrated at that.

 

If we land Hainsey, I would be fine with moving Pitkanen for a nice winger and rolling with...

 

Hainsey - Faulk

Sekera - Gleason

Komisarek - Harrison

 

Murphy - Bellemore

His contract is ridiculous for how many games he is healthy a year lol.

I think he is making $4.5 mil a year.

I saw this post on HF Boards and liked the idea because it would give us a phenomenal defense...

I'm not sure if J.R. wants to spend to the limit, but if he does this would be a great idea...

Trade Harrison to free up enough cap room to sign Ron Hainsey and roll with the following line-up...

Line 1: Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin
Line 2: Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Tuomo Ruutu
Line 3: Patrick Dwyer - Elias Lindholm - Victor Rask
Line 4: Brett Sutter - Riley Nash - Kevin Westgarth
Extra: Jared Staal/ Zac Dalpe/ Aaron Palushaj

Line 1: Joni Pitkanen - Justin Faulk
Line 2: Ron Hainsey - Andrej Sekera
Line 3: Tim Gleason - Mike Komisarek
Extra: Brett Bellemore/ Mark Flood/ Ryan Murphy

Starter : Cam Ward
Back-Up: Anton Khudobin
Call Up: Justin Peters

That's not a bad roster makeup.

why can't JR ever put together a complete team? The last few years he was Forward crazy. Now he is Defense crazy. Lets hope he is looking for more forward help because Jesus Christ that is awful.

Lol, it's because he is a money whore that never spends to the limit and when he does spend money he throws out ridiculous contracts to Tuomo Ruutu and Joni Pitkanen.

Though the third line could be good if Lindholm and Rask develop...
