Hurricanes Getting Calls About The Number Five Pick

Dylan Howlett: (RT from @ToddCordell) Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said on the Mark Spector Show that multiple teams are interested in moving into the top 5. The Hurricanes have received several inquiries. Rutherford said on The Team 1260 on Tuesday that the Hurricanes would entertain offers for the 5th pick in hopes of landing a top-four defenseman.

 

Personally, I would like to keep the fifth pick and add one of Drouin, Barkov, or Nichushkin and address our defensive needs in free agency, but JR has always been pretty stingy in free agency; so there is a chance that we could be moving on draft day (again) in exchange for a top four defenseman.
