08:30 AM ET 08.13 | While sophomore slumps are always possible, the Hurricanes, rolling with the momentum of a nice offseason of signings, will get just as much from Justin Faulk as he gave them in 2011-12. [Carolina Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said:] "I've never seen anyone handle the position like Justin Faulk has as a teenager." The organization is certainly holding out hope that Faulk is able to duplicate that effort in 2012-13 in order to create some measure of continuity along the back end. "We've had defensemen come into the League like [Bobby] Orr, [Denis] Potvin and [Phil] Housley, who were great offensive players, but I've never seen a player play so well defensively and offensively at his age," Rutherford said.
