The offseason news just keeps getting better and better for the Carolina Hurricanes. Just a couple of weeks after Eric Staal had surgery to repair a "core" muscle, there is now a report out that Alexander Semin's wrist needs more rehab.
According to a Sunday morning Tweet by Dmitry Chesnokov, Semin will soon return to the states for rehab on his wrist.
I first saw the report on Comcast Sportsnet Washington where they repeat that the Russian sniper first jammed his wrist in training camp last year and suffered from the affects of the injury all season. Semin had surgery to repair the wrist soon after the end of the season, but apparently things could be going better than what they are.
With the two top players on the team perhaps coming to training camp at less than 100% health, it could severely test the team's depth before the season even starts. Much more about this in the coming weeks.
In the News and Observer on Sunday, Luke DeCock posted an excellent article about the addition of Don Waddell to Carolina management. His primary mission? To grow revenue.
