Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,
I’m up in Traverse City, Michigan for the Red Wings annual prospect tournament. It’s usually a great place to get a look at some of the better prospects in the league, and I’ll have more later in the week on some of the young players. But I’ve spent most of the day today talking to coaches and GMs, trying to gather information for our NHL season preview in Sporting News Magazine.
During a conversation with Carolina GM Jim Rutherford about the Canes, the conversation shifted to the future of defenseman Anton Babchuk. Babchuk is coming off a 16-goal season but the restricted free agent rejected Carolina’s one-year offer. He changed agents, from Jay Grossman to Don Meehan and wants to play in the NHL next season. It won’t be with Carolina, but Rutherford said he sees a solution to Babchuk’s situation before training camp.
