- 10 targets for a top 4 defenseman by Matt Karash (Hurricanes’ Website)
My Opinion: Matt gives a host of different options that includes making a major trade like Jeff Skinner for Keith Yandle to trading very little for Andrej Meszaros. In a good deal of Matt’s proposals, Jaime McBain is included. I believe a trade involving McBain will happen this summer. However, it may not be the only move to shore up the defense.
