Sunday Hurricanes Report

Carolina Hurricanes News

My Opinion: Corey seems to like Pitkanen on this team and I feel the same. Trading him and replacing his play with Ron Hainsey or Ryan Whitney just doesn’t make sense. Pitkanen is better than both of them and although injury-prone, he means more to this team than either of those two could.

My Opinion: Hockey’s Future is one of the best sites when it comes to evaluating player’s future and potential. I feel that their analysis of Elias Lindholm may be too generous. I don’t think many expect him to take the first-line center spot from Eric Staal until years down the road.

It’s also nice to see the review of Tyler Ganly. Reading the analysis, it sounds like the sixth-round choice may have a chance in the NHL at some point and has improved greatly over the past year. Hopefully that trend can continue going into the future.
