The Carolina Hurricanes completed the expected buy out of Frantisek Kaberle today. The team released this statement. "This move is part of our effort to restructure the Hurricanes’ defense to become bigger and more physical," said Jim Rutherford. "We thank Frank for his contributions to the Hurricanes, especially the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2006." Good luck to "Frank the Tank", and thanks for the Stanley Cup memories.
