I share Rutherford's opinion regarding D men, that they are best tempered at the NHL level. Rodney was signed as a free agent by the Hurricanes in 2008. Over his three seasons with the Canes, the London, Ontario native played 33 games, scored 1 goal, tallied 12 assists, and has a plus -7 rating. At 27 years old, Rodney still has some prime playing years ahead of him. I am sorry that he's headed west...here's to hoping that he doesn't turn into a regret. He will definitely be missed in Charlotte. Led D-men in points last season (47) and was second in team assists (38).
