1. Jim Rutherford is an idiot

3. Did I mention Jim Rutherford is an idiot?
#1 picks are like gold in the new NHL and he just dumped it for an aging second line center.

Boulerice and Zigomanis have done very little at the NHL level despite both being in their mid to late 20s and Kahnber is another 25 year old who hasn't played a single NHL game. They sent two 4th rounders (1 in 06, 1 in 07) - not sure of the Canes' draft history, but how often do 4th rounders amount to much. That leaves the Canes #1 for 06. They will finish high, so that pick will most likely be the 25th overall or worse.
This may be a deal that helps both teams, especially if the Canes go on a tear.
