Corvo traded

Just seconds after the Tomas Kaberle acquisition, the Hurricanes traded away the guy who had been the “old man” on the blue line when they sent Joe Corvo to the Bruins for a fourth round draft pick. 

I knew something must have been up for that brand-name acquisition to have happened.  Corvo was in the final year of a contract that will pay him $2.25M in 2011-12.  In the end, Carolina is taking on $2M in salary.  But I still don’t think they’re done.  They still need to acquire a forward.
