Hockey’s favorite small guy Nathan Gerbe signed a 1-year deal with the Canes.
The way I figure it, the Canes are a traditionally non-hockey market and will do whatever it takes to put asses in the seats. Signing the Gerber baby does just that. The kid’s has sparks of sick dangles here and there, which is impressive in itself considering he’s an active member of the lollipop guild. As for the Canes. Why Not? Maybe he’ll flame out and the local paper can run an inspirational story about how midgets can do everything real people can do, just at about one-third the normal effective rate.
