I don’t believe there will be much of a controversy unless Cam Ward plays amazing over the last month of the season and while he has the last two wins, I don’t think that’s going to happen.
Ward simply makes too much, isn’t as consistent as Khudobin and seems to be on a decline. Trading him and ridding the team of the $6 million-plus salary seems to be the best option for GM Jim Rutherford.
As for Peters, he really hasn’t been a dependable backup in the past, but the team doesn’t seem to mind going back to him for whatever reason. Because of that, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s in Raleigh next season.
