Lord Stanley's Blog reported that Jeff O'Neill joined a few other skaters at a pre-camp practice at the Rec Zone on Monday. Apparently, O'Neill has some new motivation helping him back on the ice. Not only was he just married in April, but he and his wife are expecting. If that doesn't jack someone up to make the team, than nothing else will.
You have to give O'Neill credit for making it to Raleigh a full three weeks before training camp starts. This camp looks like it will be very interesting.
In case anyone is interested in watching the boys skate, the Rec Zone has time scheduled for a "Canes Skate" every weekday morning from 10-12. Attendees so far have included Rod Brind'Amour, Jeff O'Neill, Cam Ward, Aaron Ward, the Battaglia brothers, Scott Walker, Chad LaRose, Nic Wallin, Dennis Seidenberg and others. The skates are open to the public.
"Spector", who not only runs his own site but also blogs for Fox Sports, recently put up an article about the Hurricanes. There is nothing really new or earthshaking there, but it's a good and accurate portrayal of the Canes.
I apologize about the lack of activity recently, but I am back in town now and will soon be back to work. Cory and I are currently working on the next Canes Country Clash - Round Two, and we will have that posted as soon as it is finished.
