You do realize the Hurricanes have as much talent as almost any team in the league right? The fact Muller couldn't take them to the playoffs is why his tenure was so brief.
The fourth line is horrid and outside of Gerbe our third line is pretty poor as well. Not to mention we really don't have another legit second line winger to play with Staal outside of Skinner (lLindholm is better suited for center).
Oh and out defense is atrocious except for Faulk, Sekera, and Hainsey.
