Litsening to Jim Rutherford on 99.9 the fan yesterday and he says there most improtant tasks are getting the Coach set and sign LaRose to a deal...then go from there on other players, draft and then FA....


I have to say I agree with him.....that is why he is the gm

Well Brind'Amour isnt going to retire. I think thats a bad thing for our team.
Cole - Staal - Boychuk
Whitney - Cullen - Rutuu
LaRose - Jokinen - Samsonov
Eaves - Brind'Amour - Walker

This is what Im thinking the lines look like opening day 09. Lets just hope that they can get some guys locked up past next season. Ward, Cullen, Whitney..... all free agents.

I think bridamour not retiring may be a good thing in the long run......Sutter can stay in the minors one more year and be an even better player when he comes up Full time....

I like that 3rd line,all 3 of them are overacheivers!I hope they sign Chad LaRose(Frodo)to a contract!

You keep Cole because of the Chemistry he has with Staal, he makes Staal a better player.... Just not for 4 million. I would like for the team to add another scorer on the first line either from the Minors or a FA and we need to get at least 2 speedy defense players to add to the mix.

The only reason they should keep him is if the money is right. He is still a top 6 forward and he played like it in the regular season after the trade deadline. He does have chemistry with Staal and nobody is going to argue that, but like everybody here is saying at the right price.

Following his exit interview with GM Jim Rutherford, Erik Cole seemed confident that he would re-sign with the Hurricanes this summer. "I would expect that this is where I'll be (next season)," he said. "This was the organization that I first came in with, and there's a lot of loyalty there."

Looks like for the most part that Rutherford and company want to go with the same team as last year just add some size and skill on defense. I hope that we get the Coaching staff back, one of the best.......
