  1. – Carolina can definitely compete for a playoff spot, they showed lots of promise late last season. The challenge for them is…they play in the heavily stacked Metropolitan Division, where the 5th-6th place teams might be good enough to make the playoffs in the ATLANTIC but in the Metro they might just miss out. Carolina could make the playoffs but might have to hope for one either Columbus or the Islanders to fall back. Nevertheless, the 'Canes won't be pushovers & are usually a tough out for any team going forward. Adding the ex-Hawks to their lineup certainly helps I think. Darling is a guy that's ready for a No. 1 job in goal.

  2. Hextall and Hakstol are getting fired.

    I will be named GM of the Flyers, hire Lindy Ruff as the head coach; and have the Flyers winning the Cup in just TWO YEARS.

    But there will be pain, Simmonds, Vorachek and maybe even Gostisbehere are getting traded.

  3. Anyone who follows the NHL closely should know the Hurricanes are likely a playoff team next year but to not mention Slavin and Pesce and their contracts is to neglect their biggest strength
