    Solid job Mike. I am totally happy for Josh Hamilton. He knows what he needs to continue to do. Calapari plays some cupcakes only at home. Just look at they teams he plays at home. UNC does the same, as does Duke, State and most others. He knows that venturing out to UNC, IU, and others could spell a defeat away. He knows his cards probably better than most. The Canes should be greatly improved. I still wonder about the many trades, but last year didn't do much until late in the season...much too late.

    Good article, Mike. I still have trouble with Hamel's deliberately hitting any player, even one with an attitude. To me, that's not "old school", it's NO school. And no class.

    As for JR saying they're going to spend money, I believe him; I don't think he'd say it unless he was going to follow through. I don't think Parise will be wearing a Canes sweater next season, but I think Rutherford will be true to his word. I hope to see the Canes in the playoffs next year.

    Do you know anything about the realignment that was proposed earlier? That realignment would put the Canes in with some real tough teams.

    Good point on the Canes, just have to take JR at his word. I am not sure Parise will come here anyway. I think a trade may be the way they bring the top 6 forward into town this year. Next year's free agents have a lot more bigger names in it.
