Corvo Dealt to Bruins.

The Carolina Hurricanes have dealt defenseman Joe Corvo to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a fourth round pick.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The club’s earlier acquisition of Tomas Kaberle via free agency made Corvo expendable. His salary ($2.25 million) for next season easily fits under the Bruins salary cap, and replaces Kaberle’s spot on the Bruins blueline. Corvo had 40 points in 82 games with the Hurricanes last season, and while he’s been criticized for his defensive play, will likely see those stats improve under head coach Claude Julien’s system.

  1. Corvo said he wanted out of Ottawa due to the over the top media scrutiny. North Carolina is a lot different from Boston when it comes to hockey, especially when the Bruins are once again the toast of the town. Hopefully at this stage of his career he’ll now be able to handle the media pressure of a true hockey market.

  2. Rutherford buries the dagger in his back. Worst move of the year.

  3. So Carolina trades Corvo for Kaberle. I don’t get it. Rutherford has been mishandling defensemen throughout his entire tenure with the Canes. Jack Johnson, bringing back Aaron Ward, and now this. Not to mention he once had Dennis Seidenberg.
