My Opinion:  Pitkanen will be a huge loss because of his offensive production, but also the ice time he can handle. That is why it’s unlikely that a rookie like Ryan Murphy will be able to replace him.

Ron Hainsey is of course an option. It would be nice if the Canes can sign him for cheap that way they have money to sign a depth forward like Radek Dvorak or Brenden Morrow also.

Right now, we will have to see how bad Pitkanen’s injury is, which will be announced on Monday most likely. Hopefully for Canes fans and Pitkanen it will be a short time left on the rehab trail.
