The Thursday Coffee Shop will again take on a ‘future is bright’ theme that has made regular appearances this summer. Piggybacking on yesterday’s Daily Cup of Joe that shared thoughts the Carolina Hurricanes Traverse City Prospects Tourney, today’s polls and discussion questions present a forum for additional conversation about individual players, forward lines and defense pairings for the mid-September prospect showcase.
Carolina Hurricanes polls
Please remember to click ‘vote’ after each individual poll response.
1) Following up on the chatter that started in yesterday’s post, name your forward lines and defense pairings with bonus points awarded for themes and naming lines.
2) Who do you project to be the standouts and Hurricanes most valuable player from the tourney?
3) With the team’s history of players (Josef Vasicek, Victor Rask, etc.) using fall prospect tourneys as a spring board to winning an NHL roster spot ahead of schedule, could we similarly see a player or two (maybe beyond Haydn Fleury is much less of a dark horse) from Traverse City still in Raleigh for opening night?
