from the Raleigh News & Observer,
Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said Thursday afternoon that he is keeping his ears open.
"In the new system and the way things are now, it's hard to project if you're ever close to anything or not," Rutherford said. "So, we continue to look at things. I think the one area-and we've talked about this the first half of the season, but it becomes more obvious now - is maybe an enforcer.
"It seems like every week one of our guys is getting hit pretty hard and getting hurt, so we may try to look a little harder at that."
