Thursday Hurricanes Report

Carolina Hurricanes News

My Opinion: Matt does a good job with this blog and I have to agree with most of what he is saying. Murphy will likely see most of his time with the Checkers and will only be called up in case of an emergency.

Lindholm will have problems adjusting, but he belongs in the NHL. Nash will need to become a penalty-kill specialist to stick with the team long-term and slot in at fourth-line center.

However, with McGinn, my opinion differs. I’ve said before that I believe McGinn will have a hard time transitioning to the NHL as a power forward without spending any time in the AHL. That’s why I believe he should play with the Checkers before the Canes.
