That being said, the club has to do what it has to do, as does Ray.
I think it's stupid and sad that the Hurricane's haven't made one statement about losing him. He's one of our stars, has great overall stats as a Hurricane, and wore the A. Frankly, regardless of what any of you think about it, he earned and deserves to be treated better than this.
There was a nice write-up with pictures of Whitney in the N & O (7/02/10) and I believe it included a brief statement from JR saying he was disappointed but understood Whitney's decision. He went on to thank Whit for "the role he played as a point scorer and as a mentor for the young players, and for his contributions to winning the Stanley Cup in 2006." There was also a quote from Mo. Article was entitled WHITNEY LEAVES CANES.
Glad to hear it. I don't get the N&O and didn't see the article.
My comment was more a reference to here on the official site where every other player has had a write up except Whitney. Should've stated that a little better.
