With the start of training camp upon us, we will dust off The Coffee Shop category and given everyone a chance to build out the Hurricanes 2019-20 forward lines.
To keep there from being too many variations, the starting point is assuming that Sebastian Aho, Jordan Staal, Erik Haula and Lucas Wallmark start the season at center. If injuries do not disrupt things, I think that is highly likely to hold true. The Hurricanes do have a couple other options at center, but I view Aho, Staal and Wallmark as locks and Haula as the preferred choice for the other slot.
So with no further ado, who plays where come opening night?
Polls are below, but even better would be to hear everyone’s reasoning in the comments for why they would build the lines as they would.
