Brenden Morrow's agent confirmed he has spoken with the Hurricanes and expects to do so again. 34-yo LW was a Muller teammate in Dallas.

Here's an update on the interest in Morrow...

 

http://www.cbssports...-brenden-morrow

 

I think Morrow would be a good guy to have on the second line with Ruutu and Staal... Maybe a line-up like this is reasonable...

 

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Brendan Morrow - Jordan Staal - Tuomo Ruutu

Jeff Skinner - Elias Lindholm - Victor Rask

Patrick Dwyer - Riley Nash - Zac Dalpe

Kevin Westgarth

Drayson Bowman

 

Possible Call Ups: Aaron Palushaj, Nicolas Blanchard, Zach Boychuk, Jared Staal, Brett Sutter, Chris Terry, Jeremy Welsh

 

Joni Pitkanen - Justin Faulk

Andrej Sekera - Tim Gleason

Mike Komisarek - Jay Harrison

Brett Bellemore

 

Possible Call Ups: Ryan Murphy, Mark Flood, Michal Jordan

 

Cam Ward
Anton Khudobin

 

Possible Call Ups: Justin Peters

Some of these guys need time, you can't just keep replacing prospects with veterans.

 

Dwyer, Nash, and Skinner are proven NHL players while all Lindholm, Rask, and Dalpe might need is a chance.

At least 4 out of the 6 players in the 3rd and 4th are prospects

Dwyer, Skinner, and Nash are certainly not prospects... and Lindholm was a 5th overall pick; so there's no reason that he can't succeed.

 

The other two guys (Dalpe and Rask) are only going to be able to prove themselves if you give them a chance.

 

On top of that, with only $3 million left in cap room you can't sign two more wingers.

 

It's time to put some faith in the prospects.

Palushaj, Dalpe, Rask, Lindholm are prospects. And Nash hasn't played a full 82 game season yet so you could call him one too.

 

Bowman sucks. All the forwards you named in possible call ups suck as well.

 

I'd like a better rotational defenseman instead of Bellemore as well. We fall in love with players that have 1 or 2 good games too quick and pass on other players that could really improve the team.

You're never going to have all-starts from top to bottom...

 

If you compare that bottom six to other NHL bottom six's, it looks the same.

 

Also, I wouldn't say any of those players suck... they're playing professional hockey. And once again the only way these players aren't going to be prospects anymore is if you let them play.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like you're looking for an all-star team. If you want an all-star team you might just want to become a Penguins or Blackhawks fan.

Rutherford has confirmed that we have talked to Brendan Morrow and that the Canes are close to re-signing RFA Zac Dalpe.
