Defense

Matt Corrente

The defenseman stuck with the Hurricanes for what seemed like forever in training camp and was the last player cut. He was never called up and played 72 games, recording 11 points. Corrente tweeted this at the end of the season, likely meaning he is gone:

Corrente is a decent AHL defenseman, but their are younger blue-liners on the team that can fill his role.

Mark Flood

Brought in to replace Marc-Andre Gragnani, Flood was expected to bring offense and experience to the team. He ended up with 31 points, which isn’t a bad number at all. Flood played 33 games with the Winnipeg Jets in the 2011-12 season and is probably still trying to get back to the NHL. That won’t be with the Canes, so it’s best for the team and player to part ways. However, replacing that offense will be something important this summer.

Goalies

Mike Murphy

A long-time player in the Hurricanes’ organization, Murphy has a rough 2013-14 season as he was thrown in as the starter with Justin Peters with the Hurricanes, but then John Muse, an in-season signing, played stronger and took over the starting role. Daniel Altshuller may be in Charlotte next season, and Muse would be a better back-up then Murphy.
