Thursday Hurricanes Report


Carolina Hurricanes News

  • Yesterday’s blog on possible bottom-six options in free agency can be found here
  • A free agency preview by the Charlotte Checkers’ website (gocheckers.com)
  • The most top-heavy salary team in the NHL is actually the Canes (Hockey Buzz)
  • Corey Sznajder looks at some possible cheap defense optiond for the Hurricanes (Shut Down Line)

My Opinion: Corey gives a lot of options, but the only two worth considering are Tom Gilbert and Matt Hunwick. The others are slow, washed-up or not what the Canes need. Gilbert is still a valuable defenseman that can log a good amount of minutes and Hunwick is a good third-pairing option.
