    A thread for general Hurricanes discussion.

    The Hurricanes have the potential to become a very competitive club. They just made the Conference Finals and have now added a bunch of blue-chip prospects in Ryan Suzuki, Anttoni Honka, Jamieson Rees, Patrik Puistola, Domenick Fensore, and Blake Murray to their depth chart. With Andrei Svechnikov only poised to get better, and the addition of Patrick Marleau as a mentor to the youth, this bunch of jerks could really do some damage.

    They're also in a good position cap-wise. Their biggest impending signings are Aho (RFA) and Williams (UFA). Faulk will also be reaching UFA after next season.

      Holy shit yeah that's an impressive haul for them. Agreed this will be a team to watch, but can Mrazek be the guy for them?

        The Hurricanes had a really strong deadline too. They lost Haula, but added Skjei, Trocheck, and Vatanen. Check out their D:

        Hamilton - Slavin
        Pesce - Vatanen
        Skjei - Edmundson
        Gardiner - van Riemsdyk

        Pretty solid down the middle too; Aho - Trocheck - Staal.

          Yeah they really loaded up. That defense is insane. And adding Trocheck will be enormous for playoffs; he's gonna take a lot of pressure off of Aho.

          Before the season I picked Nashville-Carolina for the finals. I'm less confident in the Preds' defense and goaltending now, but Carolina looking like a real contender.
