Eric Staal reportedly asking $9 million per season

  The biggest story for the Carolina Hurricanes in 2015-16 isn’t likely to be the performance of the team. Everyone, probably even those in the locker room, expects the ‘Canes to be contenders for nothing more than the top pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. No, the biggest story will likely revolve around team captain and longtime franchise cornerstone Eric Staal and his impending...

Video: Alexander Semin went a full play with a stick caught in his jersey

Alexander Semin is trying to resurrect his career now that he’s with the Montreal Canadiens. That includes giving it his all on the ice … even if an opponent’s stick gets caught in his jersey. T.J. Oshie’s stick got stuck inside Semin’s jersey (not really sure how) and Semin carried it with him for a good amount of time before it came dislodged on a shot. Ridiculous. ...

Hurricanes president says they paid Semin 'to go away'

Alexander Semin was a failed experiment for the Carolina Hurricanes. Semin was signed to a five-year, $35 million contract heading into 2013-14 and the outcome was a disaster. Over the last two seasons, Semin appeared in 122 games and scored 61 points. That stat line doesn’t sound too bad, but he managed just 19 points in 57 games in 2014-15 which resulted in the club buying...

The Carolina Hurricanes have only had a few coaches in their 18 year history, yet each one has left a mark — good and bad — for the next coach in line.
