My Opinion: Even without Elias Lindholm this team has the chance to be one of the deepest in recent years for the Hurricanes. Their offense has good depth and after a strong 2013 Draft, the cupboards have been slightly restocked.
Ryan Murphy will lead the defense with a group of AHL-ready defensemen with him, such as Danny Biega, Austin Levi and Keegan Lowe.
The goaltenders are not as skilled as the rest of the team, but with the rest of the team in front of them, the Hurricanes could do some damage in the tournament.
