If you were away from Canes and Coffee early in the week, I think the Monday Coffee Shop is one of the most interesting ever in terms of poll responses and worth a look. Without spoiling it, the difference between who WILL be the next captain and who SHOULD be the next captain was interesting as was both the choice and maybe even more so the margin of victory for who would be the Hurricanes captain in four years.
If you missed yesterday’s ‘initial thoughts’ on the Jaccob Slavin re-signing, you can find that HERE. The Thursday Coffee Shop polls and discussion consider Jaccob Slavin’s deal and also which other players scheduled to become restricted free agents next summer could also be in line to be re-signed early.
Check out also today’s Daily Cup of Joe. The article presents the pros and cons for early new contracts for each of the other six players scheduled to become restricted free agents next summer.

There are also comments in the article about Jaccob Slavin’s re-signing, but we might as well also bring the discussion into the coffee shop.
1) What are your thoughts on Jaccob Slavin’s deal including the price, the term and more generally what it means for him and our hockey team going forward?
2) Are there any players among the other pending restricted free agents who you think are must-sign or close for this summer versus waiting until after the 2017-18 season? Why?
3) Who else would you most like to see re-signed early? For whom do you see less reason to rush into it?
