A 2nd round pick for Niclas Wallin? Consider it done.
This trade is a win-win situation for everybody as far as I'm concerned. The Sharks get a reliable and steady defenseman who has seen it all, while the Canes pick up another as-of-yet-unnamed prospect while clearing a bit of cap-space. Nothing to complain about on any side here. Just a solid trade.
Did anyone else get to see Justin Peters post game interview after finally registering his first NHL win? It's good to see a young player (and the team and coaching staff, for that matter) so genuinely excited over something so simple as playing a game.
For those unfamiliar, Justin Peters is a 24 year old goaltender who plays with the Albany River Rats. He had been called up and dressed for the Hurricanes 10 times, had never seen the ice once at the NHL level. Peters made his first NHL start against the New York Islanders, and made 34 of 35 saves backstopping the Canes to another win.
Cam Ward is meeting with a specialist today in order to figure out a long-term solution to a recurring back problem he's been having lately… let's just hope it's nothing too serious.
The Hurricanes next game is Tuesday against the Florida Panthers. Let's blow them away.
