Thursday Hurricanes Report

Carolina Hurricanes News

My Opinion: Damien Brunner is probably the best option for an addition at forward on the free agent market. He’s young and skilled, while most of the players left are aging.

Jeff Halpern could be a good addition, but he’s a fourth-line center, which should already go to Riley Nash. Plus the Canes should be looking for a third-line winger. Same goes for Kyle Wellwood, but I would rather have Wellwood than Halpern.

Carlo Colaiacovo is an interesting name that hasn’t been talked about. He can move the puck and is decent in his own end, but is also extremely injury prone. He could be a cheap option.

Dave Steckel should not be considered by the Canes. He is great at face-offs, but that is about it. He can’t help the offense and is too slow to help out the defense.
