Ward Still Thinking Carolina

from the News & Observer,
Aaron Ward, a big contributor to the Carolina Hurricanes winning the Stanley Cup, was traded (signed as a UFA) to the New York Rangers two months ago. But he's having trouble getting from traded away to gone away. At 10 a.m. most weekdays a handful of Hurricanes skate at their regular practice facility, the RecZone. Most mornings Ward skates with them -- a popular teammate turned lone Ranger. He doesn't wear the Canes colors, and he can't enter their locker room. But he still feels part of the team. "I can't say that this transition is as easy as I thought it was going to be," said Ward, 33. He joined the Hurricanes in 2001 and was part of the team's two runs to the Stanley Cup finals.
