Carolina has signed D Joe Corvo to a 1-year contract.
Joe Corvo signs with Carolina. What, you thought it was gonna be ALL good news this off-season, Canes fans?
Had a down year with the Bruins last year, but he put up 40 points in Carolina the season before. Third tour of duty with the Hurricanes.
For fun, let's see the effect that Corvo trades have had in Carolina.
Joe Corvo traded to Washington Capitals for Brain Pothier, Oskar Osala, Capitals 2011 2nd
Capitals 2011 2nd, Hurricanes 2010 6th traded to New York Rangers for Bobby Sanguinetti
Joe Corvo traded to Boston Bruins for Boston 2012 4th (D Trevor Carrick)
Combined return for Joe Corvo trades has been 24 games played, 1 goal, 3 assists, 4 points, 11 PIM and a -8. With prospect Trevor Carrick and Bobby Sanguinetti the only two pieces still in the Hurricanes system - Osala is playing over in the KHL and Pothier in Switzerland.
The one year deal allows the Hurricanes to add to this legacy.
