This should be interesting–though really I am more interested to see how Jake does in Albany than I am to see how TRowe does here in R’lyeh.
And as an aside, OG Whalercane Robert Kron was hired by the Hurricanes as the team’s European scout. It’s not that I mind this, but even with this hiring we only have a scouting staff of 10. Even the Avalanche, who have possibly the most weak-sauce farm system in the League, have more than the Hurricanes. Only three more, but they still have more–three of whom are in Europe.
But that, my friends, is a rant for another day. Or later today. I haven’t decided yet.
This was a smart move–the kid wasn’t getting enough ice time on the 4th line, and he hasn’t been playing well enough to be on any higher line. He needs to get clear of R’lyeh and get some ice time in the AHL and get his head back together.
In other news, the Hurricanes have made Tom Barrasso their fulltime goalie coach as Greg Stefan has left to go coach the OHL’s Plymouth Whalers. This will be interesting.
