A Taxing Situation

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Jim Rutherford doesn't want to stand in the way of a golden opportunity. But the Carolina Hurricanes GM isn't thrilled with the idea of star centre Eric Staal going to Italy in February and not even getting a chance to practise or feel like he's part of Team Canada. "My belief is that if they're going to have these taxi squads, they should just be part of a 26-man roster so everybody is part of the team and they feel like they are part of the team," Rutherford said yesterday from his Raleigh, N.C., office.
