The Carolina Hurricanes Season may or may not be over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to the next one and ways to improve the team.
The season is still on hiatus with no timetable to return. Many are already thinking that it’s time to focus on the next season. Unless you are one of the top teams in the league such as the Bruins, Blues, Lightning, Golden Knights, or Capitals, the concept of scrapping the season may not be a bad one. For the Carolina Hurricanes it can involve making tweaks to getting the most next season.
While the Canes started the season as one of the best in the league, it became obviously clear that there were still holes in the lineup. It didn’t take more than one or two key players getting hurt for the team to drop in the standings like a weight in the ocean. So how can this team adjust for next season?
Now, I know that many of you are not ready to be done with this season just yet, but consider this, the way the events of the offseason keep getting pushed to the right, the smartest decision could be to just let this season go and focus on conquering the next one.
So how can this team get better for next year? I have narrowed it down to three ways to take this team from a wildcard to a divisional champion, perhaps even the best team in the league. Surprisingly enough, it won’t take much.
