Canes Camp Notes

Posted January 16, 2013

CAMP NOTES: DAY 4

• Carolina placed Andreas Nodl and Brett Sutter on waivers, if both players clear they can be assigned to Charlotte of the AHL. Players that are claimed on waivers will be announced by the league on Thursday at noon. The Canes want to get down to 22 players by Friday; the roster stands at 24 as of today. The plan is to carry an extra forward and defenseman for the 48 game schedule.
• The Hurricanes had a few changes to their lines. Kirk Muller kept Zach Boychuk with Eric Staal and Alex Semin. Zac Dalpe stayed with the team and stayed with Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner, his line mates from the Red/White scrimmage. With Boychuk and Dalpe playing up, the Canes have strengthened their third line as Jussi Jokinen was flanked by Jiri Tlusty and Chad LaRose. Muller credits his veterans’ versatility and giving him the opportunity to give Dalpe and Boychuk a look with the Staals.
• The Canes only had one practice session, a small change from the first two practices of camp. On Sunday and Monday the Canes would practice, then take a break for 20 minutes then have a second session, usually focusing on special teams. Wednesday, special teams were worked on before the start of practice.
• The short training camp has put limits things organizations would like to do. Kirk Muller after practice said he would like to have the ability to try more combinations with his lines with a set roster, and with only a week to get ready for the opener and with zero exhibition games it's a luxury that teams don't have.

QUOTES

*Head coach Kirk Muller on being to mix and match lines to create balance, “I have said all along the third line is so valuable. We have a different look this year with the two Staal brothers. Jordan and Eric can play head to head with I feel any lines in the league. If that’s the way you want to play some nights, then it opens it up for the third line. I said to those guys (LaRose, Jokinen, Tlusty), you look at their scrimmage; they were very effective, lots of scoring chances. I don’t even want to call it a first, second and third line. Really I think its three lines that bring something different to the table. It’s (the line-up) not set yet, but it’s a possibility.”
*Forward Tim Brent is anxious to get the season going and gave his thoughts on how Jordan Staal and Alex Semin have brought to the locker room and the roster, “It’s an exciting time I think for all of us players, we all have high expectations for ourselves and our team. It is fun watching those guys (Staal and Semin), great additions, very glad to have them here obviously. Excited to see what they can do and we as a team can do over the next 48 games.”
