If you can ignore the questionable move to bring back Cam Ward, the Carolina Hurricanes have enjoyed a very nice summer.

Sunday stands as one of their better days so far. After making a low-risk claim on a nice asset in Martin Frk, the Hurricanes signed Jakub Nakladal to a one year, $600K contract.

GM Ron Francis is accurate in describing this as a depth move, even if Flames fans seem sad about losing Nakladal and pundits are giving it a thumbs up.

Flames Nation discusses how he drove play for Calgary.

These aren’t the types of signings that revolutionize teams, but if you make enough wise ones, you’ll often reap some significant rewards.
