UNSUNG HEROES: THE ROLE OF WHITE, CARTER, & BODIE IN THE HURRICANES' RECENT SUCCESS

 

UNSUNG HEROES:  THE IMPACT OF OBTAINING WHITE, CARTER, AND BODIE

 

            For whatever reason, the Hurricanes won/loss record has been outstanding since Jim Rutherford obtained Ian White, Ryan Carter, and Troy Bodie.  I think they have made significant positive contributions to the team.  Carter and Bodie added a desperately needed size with speed and physicality element to the team. 

            I think Bodie is a diamond in the rough and that there is much more to his game than merely being a fast, big, physical fourth line forward.  Carter, too, has been outstanding on the penalty kill.  Due to the depth on the Hurricanes team, and perhaps the reluctance of the Hurricanes coaches to throw its highly skilled, young forward prospects into the top nine,  Carter and Bodie have been playing at times with Tlusty, Samsonov, and now Boychuk.  The fourth line with Carter and Bodie have consistently put pressure on the opposing team and always seem to get the  pucks in the corners.

            Ian White is a fast, excellent skater who thinks the game well.  He seems to be very adept in staying in sync with Pitkanen.  Pitkanen is such a fast, powerful skater than he waits for no one.  His style of play puts tremendous pressure on the other defenseman on his line as well as the high forward.  I think Pitkanen takes the approach, either run with the big dog or stay on the porch.  It makes for exciting hockey, but it takes a defenseman who can skate beautifully, think quickly, and maintain tremendous conditioning to keep up with Pitkanen.  Ian White was done an excellent job for the Hurricanes.

 

 

            The statistics below show the Hurricanes records with White, Carter and Bodie on the team.  White, Carter, and Bodie can rightly be proud of their role in the success of their Hurricanes since their addition to the team.  They are not the only reasons the Hurricanes have been successful; but they do play a large role in that success.
