Carolina Signs Chad LaRose for Two Years - Rioting in Streets Ensues

The Carolina Hurricanes have just announced the re-signing of free agent Chad LaRose to a two year contract.  LaRose will earn 1.5 million in 2009-10 and 1.9 million in 2010-2011.    Apparently, the winger was finally able to get through on the phone to GM Jim Rutherford, who was a bit put off last night because he claimed LaRose never returned his call.  All's well that ends well though for the general manager, who ended up accomplishing what he wanted to, the re-assembling of the core of last year's squad. 

This contract might put an abrupt end to the Hurricanes free agent spending, even though they could still use a big, strong, physical defenseman.  More about that in the coming days.  In the meantime, Caniacs can rejoice and enjoy the holiday weekend.
