Thursday Hurricanes Report


Carolina Hurricanes News

My Opinion: It won’t be easy for Murphy to make the Canes’ defense with eight players that could play in the NHL, including Murphy. If he wants to make the team, he’ll have to beat out fellow hopeful Brett Bellemore and veteran Mike Komisarek.

On the other hand, it may not be bad thing if Murphy spends a full year with the Charlotte Checkers, working on his defensive game in the AHL and building confidence.

My Opinion: I’ll have more on this later, but I have a little trepidation with Morrow, given his age, scoring decline and term he could come at. I’ll look at the positives and negatives in a blog posted later today.

My Opinion: The opportunities will help the younger players make the Hurricanes roster this season. Whether that’s a good thing for the team remains to be seen. Right now it looks like the Canes will go in with an inexperienced group in the bottom six.
