I had good intentions of putting this up for the Monday Coffee Shop, but I hit one of those busy stretches where life got in the way.
With the 2017-18 mostly falling to pieces down the stretch, one can bet that the removal of Ron Francis from the general manager position will not be the only change between now and when the 2018-19 training camp opens.
In two parts, the Coffee Shop will be holding open auditions for the general manager position via a set of polls and related discussion on the full set of Hurricanes hockey personnel. Part 1 is the forwards with simple ‘stay or go’ polls. Check back on Thursday for a similar set of polls for the goalies, defensemen and staff.
Carolina Hurricanes ‘stay or go’ polls
Please remember to click vote after each individual poll response.
1) Which forwards would you consider to be the core that is untouchable or at least very unlikely to be shopped?
2) Are there any players that you would work to move even if the return is not great as part of a shake up of sorts?
3) What else on building out the forward lineup for 2018-19?
