Carolina Hurricanes tweak roster hoping to get back to playoffs

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL,

Eric StaalThe Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup in 2006. Since then, it’s been almost exclusive misery for the fans and team in Raleigh. The Hurricanes have failed to make the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. In that fifth season, they finished sixth and won two seven-game series before bowing out of the Conference Final in four games. This season, Carolina hopes that a few roster tweaks will mean the difference between a playoff berth and early tee times on the golf courses.

Boston Bruins roster remains intact after Stanley Cup season

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, NHL,

Mark RecchiIn recent seasons, we’ve seen Stanley Cup rosters disband (if not explode) during the summer months. The Pittsburgh Penguins lost a good handful of players after their run, while seemingly half of the Chicago Blackhawks roster was spread out among the league after they won. The Boston Bruins are looking to try the opposite, as most of the members of the 2011 Stanley Cup winners are back, which many think will give them the upper hand in their road to repeat.

Ron Wilson remains head coach of struggling Toronto Maple Leafs

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Front Office, NHL, Rumors,

Ron WilsonThe Toronto Maple Leafs are struggling to win games lately, or as Leafs fans call it, performing to expectations. Leafs head coach Ron Wilson and GM Brian Burke have reportedly not had conversations about Wilson’s future, but after scoring just 15 goals in their last nine games, something is clearly wrong with Toronto, and as always, Wilson and his job have become the center of attention in the media. Wilson has struggled to find a winning lineup of players, but that may also result from an incredible lack of depth among his players.

Tomas Kaberle back with the Toronto Maple Leafs after summer of nothing

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Rumors,

Tomas KaberleThe Maple Leafs’ defenseman Tomas Kaberle and coach Ron Wilson say they like each other. Every other indication is that they don’t. Kaberle arrived back in Toronto for training camp and was immediately questioned by the media about the situation. This has been a continuous story older than the Kovalchuk contract, but it’s almost at the point where we can see if actions truly speak louder than words when these two interact with each other when the season begins.

Tomas Kaberle continues to wear Toronto Maple Leafs blue and white

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Rumors,

Tomas KaberleThe summer’s ongoing story between Tomas Kaberle’s no-trade clause and the Toronto Maple Leafs who was in trade talks with other teams possibly came to an end last night. Kaberle’s contract allowed him to be traded up until 12:01 a.m. EST, but that deadline came and passed and Kaberle is still the property of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment. It looks like he’ll report to Toronto’s training camp and wear the blue and white for another season, unless he waives his no-trade clause at some point, but that likely won’t happen until the trade deadline.

Kaberle’s potential Maple Leaf swan song

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Rumors,

Tomas KaberleFour-time All-Star Tomas Kaberle may be playing his last game as a Toronto Maple Leaf in front of the hometown crowd tonight at the Air Canada Centre. The 32-year old Czech made his debut with the Leafs in 1998 after being drafted 204th overall in 1996, and has been one of the mainstays on the team since. His no-trade clause expires after the season, and many are expecting him to be shipped out in favor of draft picks before this year’s Entry Draft, as Toronto is in desperate need of getting some.
