RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired defenseman Aaron Ward from the Boston Bruins in exchange for forward Patrick Eaves and a fourth-round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
“With this trade, our defense really takes shape,” said Rutherford. “Aaron played very well during his time in Carolina and had maintained that consistency with New York and Boston. We envision him complementing Joni Pitkanen well as a defensive pairing.”

Doesn't this mean that Scott Walker and Aaron Ward are now teammates? Does that mean Ward gets a free punch to settle the matter?

Certainly seems like a possibility.

I'd rather have Ward than Lebda or Meech, but that is just me...

Could be, and it'll give them just enough room to acquire Kaberle.

LeftWinger - I too would rather have Ward over Lebda, or Meech.

I don't know if you'll find anybody that'll rather have Lebda AND Meech over Ward to be honest.

Any day. Meech needs to be let go of, but Lebda plays smart. He doesnt often make a poor play, his points dont give him justice.

Its just too bad he was Bowman's whipping boy here, I don't understand why either. I wish the Wings would re-aquire him someday, of after this stint in Carolina, he may retire. Gotta love a Wolverine!

Ward was fresh outta college, and was acclimating himself to the pro game - something Bowman doesn't have time for (it's been known for his preference of veterans instead of youngsters).

He more or less fell into Bowman's doghouse based on his inexperience; irony is if Bowman were coaching today Ward is exactly the kinda guy he'd want on his team.

Good move for Carolina. That team consistently surprises me in that they seem to be pretty good at putting together solid teams without a big hoopla...

I completely forgot he played for the Rangers. Good move by Carolina.

I really like what Jimmy Rutherford has done this off season. Re-signs Larose, Cole and Ruutu and Jokinen, adds two good character guys in Kostopolous and Alberts and now brings Ward back for a winger who hasnt been effective since Darcy Tucker beat him up.

Dont know what Bostons doing, must have a trade brewing.

Me thinks the Bruins freed-up just enough cap space so Kaberle can be added...In the past Kessel had been rumored to be heading to T.O.

Possibly, but it seems a tad strange that Burkie would come out yesterday saying Kaberle would be on the opening day roster, and then turn around and deal him, but again, it is Burke.

Here's a question, would you rather have Ward or Stuart? They are pretty much the same players, yet Ward makes less. BTW, he is a UFA next year, wonder if there would be any inerest either way considering Lidstrom, Lilja & Lebda all being UFA's as well? Problem is, Ward is better than a third line paring....
