Thursday Hurricanes Report

Carolina Hurricanes News

My Opinion: It’s no denying that last year was a down year for Skinner. I believe he’s better than that, but he needs to start proving it. The Hurricanes have plenty of confidence in him and he’ll have his shot.

The fact that Skinner is open to playing different positions is a good thing. It would be even worse if he had an attitude in the locker room, but it seems that he is easy-going at this point.

However, I also feel that if Skinner has a bad season he could be trade bait at the end of the season, as his salary will be at over $5 million a season.
