The Carolina Hurricanes are announcing that they just reacquired Aaron Ward from the Boston Bruins for Patrick Eaves and a fourth round pick. This quote from GM Jim Rutherford:

"With this trade, our defense really takes shape", said Rutherford. " Aaron played very well during his time in Carolina and had maintained that consistency with New York and Boston. We envision him complementing Joni Pitkanen well as a defensive pairing."

I guess Cory owes me a beer. :-) Two Possible Deals

We will discuss this a bit more later. The trade probably seals the fate for a Kaberle buy out now.

((UPDATE))

It looks like the Bruins put Eaves on waivers with the intent to buy out his contract. We will watch to see what happens with this development.
