Anyone who checked out of Canes hockey at the end of the work week on Friday and is just returning on Monday has some catching up to do. The buzz, and a significant one at that, around the team right now is all about the team’s trade for Scott Darling from the Chicago Blackhawks.
If you are catching up, I posted my initial thoughts on the Darling trade (part 1) about an hour after it was announced (also includes bunch of reader comments). Sunday Canes Chronicle features four articles on Darling to get everyone up to speed. And today’s Daily Cup of Joe offers part 2 on the Darling deal including salary comparables, and my best guess for his deal.
And continuing with the buzz, Scott Darling is the focus of today’s Coffee Shop polls and discussion questions.
