Very good news on the homefront.
The Hurricanes have re-signed Kevyn Adams to a two-year deal. We don't yet know the terms of the deal because the club does not disclose that, but the speculation was that he would get something like $750k per season. This is an absolute steal for a player who works exceptionally hard on every shift and has a fantastic attitude.
I won't kid anyone by saying that Adams is a good goal-scorer. He'll likely have somewhere in the neigborhood of 15 goals. What he brings, though, is incredible tenacity, and a never-give-up outlook. A perfect example of this is Kevyn's shorthanded goal with less than a second remaining in an overtime game at Atlanta on March 5, 2004. He was among the league leaders in shorthanded goals with five.
There has been a good deal of speculation that Kevyn will be wearing an A on his sweater this year, while Brind'Amour wears the C. I am a very vocal supporter of that.
Check out this stunning goal Kevyn scored against the Rangers on January 8, 2004.
