Fatal Attraction Redoux at the RBC?

This Glenn Close stalker-chick to throw out first boiled bunny?


New year, new blood in the lineup tonight. Casey Borer dons the sightless eye vs. Koval-MacKilt and the Thrash. Here's some talent analysis from Hockeysfuture.com:

He also has the ability to make good outlet passes. He is solid positionally and his skating is good. He sees the ice and follows plays very well. He is good in one-on-one situations and can contain opposing players quite well. His play along the boards is also quite good. Borer doesn’t shy away from the physical play and can deliver solid checks.

Found an article on College Hockey News on Casey from 2005 that includes this line:

"When Casey's on his game, he's a big, steady horse back on the blue line," SCSU assistant coach Fred Harbinson said. "One his best attributes is that he is a big puck-moving defenseman."


If the kid lives up to the billing, this might be a nice mid-season addition to the Canes blueline. I like this move much more than the Wade Brookbank call-up.
