July 1st, 2010 No Comments

The 2010 edition of NHL Free Agency is now off with a bang. Despite plenty of trades throughout the NHL Draft last weekend and then many more over the past week, hundreds of hockey players are now out on the market. As the reports of trades, signings, and re-signings steadily flow in, we’ll be keeping track of each team’s new additions, departing players, and re-signings.

And, when it was all said and done, through picks and trades and hours of negotiating, the Hurricanes can come away from Los Angeles with high hopes for the future. General Manager Jim Rutherford had a busy weekend, as the Hurricanes were the seventh team up in the first round Friday night and then continued to have selections all through Saturday as well. Despite having the option of going with Cam Fowler or Brandon Gormley, both of whom were expected to go earlier and both of whom could be a great addition to the ‘Canes’ needy defensive unit, the Hurricanes decided to go with center Jeff Skinner with the seventh pick.
