So, on to the Hurricanes, who have posted themselves a 3-2-1 record to kick off the season. A respectable record, having only played two home games thus far, but the team has seemed to regress as the season goes on, as opposed to getting better.
Obviously I can't recap every game for you here, so I will give you some +/- ratings for players on the season....
Brandon Sutter: While the rookie was pencilled in at 4th line center before the season started, one could expect that there would be some growing pains. Surprisingly, the young Sutter has provided some offense and has continued to improve game after game.
Niclas Wallin: Wallin is finally fully healthy and it shows... 5 points in 5 games. Need I say more?
Dennis Seidenberg: Seidenberg has continued to be a solid force, and is quickly earning a permanent place in the line-up
Joe Corvo: Look up "Non-Existant" in the dictionary, he's there.
Patrick Eaves: Eaves has had about as much impact om the season as the arena announcer. Poor efforts will not be tolerated for long on this team.
Injuries: We are six games in, and only have one natural right-winger on the team.... and that's Eaves. Williams, Walker, and now Ruutu are all out, and it shows. Expect a trade soon.
