The roster is set, who are you excited to watch this year?


Recommended Posts

The team announced the opening night roster: https://www.nhl.com/hurricanes/news/canes-announce-2020-21-opening-night-roster/c-320234206

Five players I'm most excited to watch this season: 

  • Andrei Svechnikov - Arguably the most exciting young player in the game. This is the season he becomes a household name. 
  • Martin Necas - If he takes another step forward, the Canes could have a crazy good top six. 
  • Nino Niederreiter - Dude struggled last year. If he steps up, this offense could be one of the best in the division. 
  • Haydn Fleury - We've been waiting a while for him to get his shot and he's looked great in camp. 
  • Dougie Hamilton - He was having an amazing season before breaking his leg last year, guy could compete for the Norris this year.

Honorable mention: Morgan Geekie. Currently the NHL leader in points per game. Looked awesome before the pandemic pause last year but did not get a lot of playoff minutes.

Really appreciating the primers you've been posting up. I've been wanting to get more into hockey for the last couple of years and your knowledge + enthusiasm has been a blessing in finally getting so

This guy mainly because his name is really fun to try to say.    I hope to contribute actual hockey talk at some point in the near future.   

in the words of the wise Metallica..."Gimme Fuel, Gimme Fire, Gimme Nino NEED-EH-RIDER".    

Fleury for sure, arguably our best defender in the bubble last year.

Honorable mention to Skjei and Bean.

I’d like to see Bean play well this year and then attach a pick to Gardiner to have  Seattle select him in the expansion draft. Our defense could be downright unfair if Skjei and Bean live up to RBA’s preseason praises.

Slavin - Hamilton

Skjei - Pesce

Bean - Fleury

Don't worry! The learning curve is not that intense and Canes fans are among the most welcoming in hockey. It's basically soccer on ice but 100X faster and with more fighting and action.
