This week’s collection of Carolina Hurricanes news from around the internet says goodbye to 1 of hockey’s all-time greats, looks at another seemingly fabricated Canes rumor and revisits Cam Ward after comments from Hurricanes GM Ron Francis this week.

Best guess is that he wrote this during 1 of the crazy rain delays for the NC State baseball games when he had a bunch of free time on his hands. There is some decent factual information and history on the Karmanos situation before it devolves into him defending his objectivity covering the team and then goes full downpour real late at night tossing around trade ideas that could include Justin Faulk, Olli Maatta, Matt Murray and Evgeni Malkin. Hard to say exactly how much rain it takes to just steal Sidney Crosby in the process.
