K-Ads traded to Phoenix

I just read (story = N&O)that the Canes have traded Alternate captain and one-time fan favorite Kevyn Adams to the Phoenix Coyotes for defenseman Dennis Seidenberg.

Even before the current wave of injuries to Carolina's blue line, there had been some talk of trading Adams. He's been unhealthy, ineffective, and there are rumors (which I still refuse to believe) that he was in Laviolette's doghouse.

The current wave of injuries necessitated some sort of trade, but I guess I had imagined something a little better. That said, even when I consider my allegiance to K-Ads, he was the most dispensable player.

I've never heard of Seidenberg, but he's a healthy defenseman with NHL experience, which is something even our AHL affiliate can't offer. Hopefully, things will work out.

He should be gathering his stuff, getting his passport in order, and flying to Toronto to join the team tomorrow.

The native of Germany will don the #4 sweater, worn by Aaron Ward for so many years.

More as this develops.

So long, K-Ads!

I'm looking forward to seeing KAds in a Coyotes sweater. Good deal for both guys and both clubs. It's gonna get crowded in Hurricane bluelineland in a couple of weeks.

No doubt he was having a crappy year, but he's been a good player and leader for the Canes franchise. Hopefully he'll right his game and have success in Phoenix.

I think the Coyotes are on the verge of turning their ship around. They have several young guys in their system and several "elder statesmen" will be on their way out. I think KAds will like being out there in the desert. He has plenty of playoff experience which is always a plus.
