Morning Line- Don Waddell

"It's the busiest time after a season I've ever had in the history of being a general manager. There haven't been any days that have gone by where I haven't talked to some GMs. There's a flat cap, and a lot of teams are up against the cap. We've got a little space, but not a lot of space. Then there's the economics. Let's face it. What happened this past year and the unknown going forward, there are a lot of teams looking to move money off their books. It's been an interesting time."

-Don Waddell, GM of the Carolina Hurricanes.  Michael Smith of Hurricanes.com has more on the Canes.

Rod Brind’Amour On The Questionable Goal From The Boston Bruins

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer,

Brind’Amour challenged one aspect of the play; the NHL ruled that the officials had actually gotten a different aspect wrong and not only awarded the goal but gave the Bruins a power play.

“This is why the league’s a joke, in my opinion, on these things,” Brind’Amour told The News & Observer. “That one is a crime scene.”

n the second period, Boston’s Charlie Coyle ended up scoring into an open net after Anders Bjork swiped the puck from Petr Mrazek’s glove on the ice. The Hurricanes challenged the goal, arguing that there was an illegal hand pass when the Bruins’ Nick Ritchie knocked the puck out of midair with his glove before it ended up with Mrazek.

Referee Chris Lee ruled that Mrazek had possession of the puck, wiping out the hand pass -- an admission the officials botched the play by failing to blow the whistle when Mrazek froze the puck -- and awarding the goal. But Brind’Amour said afterward that referees Lee and Francis Charron wouldn’t give him any information about the call on the ice, leaving him with a 50-50 choice of which of their potential mistakes to challenge.

“They came to me, and I said, ‘If he has possession of it then it’s goalie interference. If he doesn’t have possession then it’s a hand pass. It’s one of the two. I don’t know what you’re calling on the ice,’” Brind’Amour said. “All he has to do is tell me. ‘We’re calling it nonpossession (by Mrazek),’ then we’re challenging a glove-hand pass. If it’s possession, then goaltender interference. I said, ‘Tell me the call on the ice.’ They wouldn’t do it when I say, ‘What is the call?’ So I had to flip a coin. ...

Statement From The Charlotte Checkers

via the Charlotte Checkers,

While we are aware that the Carolina Hurricanes are nearing an affiliation agreement with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves, the Hurricanes have had little dialogue with us regarding this matter.

In an era when NHL teams are placing great value on affiliations with closer proximity between the two clubs, we understand the confusion that such a move would cause.

We will explore other options for our affiliation and look forward to continuing in the American Hockey League when play resumes.
