My Opinion: While I don’t believe the Hurricanes should be adding a defenseman, Ron Hainsey would be my choice over Ryan Whitney. Whitney had difficulty breaking into the Oilers’ lineup at times, but Hainey was always a mainstay with the Jets.
I’ve never really thought about Lennart Petrell before as a possibility, he’s a smaller named player that flew under the radar in Edmonton. But after Mark’s anaylsis of him, Petrell could be a good fit in Carolina. He plays well defensively and excels in the penalty kill.
