The Carolina Hurricanes 2017 prospect camp kicked off on Wednesday and presented the first opportunity to see the newest set of Canes prospects in Raleigh. I know some are grumbling about the fact the fact that Francis actually used all eight picks that he had entering the draft (he did use two in trade prior to the draft), but there is a positive in that the future continues to look brighter by the day.
If you missed my article went up early morning/late night on Thursday, my notes from the first day of prospect camp are HERE.
I think what I am going to do is put up a separate Coffee Shop post either later on Thursday or otherwise Friday for comments on the start of NHL free agent hunting season on Saturday, so that we do not have two completely different sets of conversations jumbled together.
The Thursday Coffee Shop will focus on the Hurricanes’ prospect pool.
Carolina Hurricanes prospects polls
Please remember to click ‘vote’ after each individual response.
Some of the polls sort of lean toward evaluations of Wednesday’s practice (obviously everyone was not able to attend), but this is not intended to be a scientific evaluation, so please feel to vote based on your impressions from my other other people’s evaluations or just your general opinion. The goal, as always, is enthusiastic conversation, not professionally qualified opinions.
1) For those who attended the first prospect camp practice on Wednesday, please share one or two (or more) observations?
2) Especially for the new players, who do they remind you of?
3) Share your 2 cents on one of the big guns (i.e. Jake Bean, Julien Gauthier, Nicolas Roy, Martin Necas, etc.)
4) Or just talk about anything else related to the Hurricanes prospect pool or prospect camp this week.
