Canes Now - Rutherford: Likely a quiet weekend


Rutherford gives an update on the search for a defenseman. He still maintains that he would be willing to go into Opening Night with the current defense on our roster and McBain in a top four pairing with Gleason, but also says that acquiring a defenseman will be a big priority to add depth to the position. He says Picard and Rodney are "still in the mix." Joe Corvo, on the other hand, seems to have priced himself out of the Hurricanes budget, even though they'd like to have him back. He also specifically mentioned Sanguinetti as a possibility to go with Harrison in the third pairing, after previously mentioned that spot to go to a player to be determined. More about McBain and the possibility of playing as a top four vs. third pair defenseman: "He’s clearly a top-4 guy. But we want to do what’s right for his development. That being said, we feel completely comfortable with him paired with Gleason."

"Not making a lot of progress" re-signing Cole and LaRose - Update


Paul Branecky of ch.com spoke with Jim Rutherford today and apparently there is little progress in the signing of any of the Hurricanes unrestricted free agents. The closer to July 1st it gets, the more complicated things get, for both sides of the negotiation. While Rutherford certainly has a budget to adhere to, there has been no mention of what the Canes budget will be this year. Is it the same as last year? Higher? Lower? One would assume that because of the deep playoff run and the fact that the franchise was in the black this past season, the budget might be a bit higher than last year's 49 million. But you know what they say about assumptions. edit- Rutherford states in this interview with 590 The Fan that he would like to be at 50 million this coming year. He repeats that he would like to bring the same team back for next year, "but agents are throwing goofy numbers around." 590 the fan interview
