Last Cuts
If the Canes do indeed sign Richmond (lowell) and Staal (Carolina) where would that leave them in manpower? Who would be the last cut?

Of the guys left in camp, two will go to either their junior team or Lowell without question ... that's Richmond and Cam Ward taken care of.

Tetarenko and Boulerice continue to compete for the enforcer roles ... one to Lowell one to keep ... but it's not a topic that the staff has said anything about as of yet.

From there it gets fuzzy. Maurice has even made some noise about keeping 8 defensemen, and if they do keep Staal that means only one extra forward ... which is dumb IMO since it's likely to be Jeff Daniels.

Why was Daniels even re-signed?

I'm not a huge Daniels apologist or anything, but the basic reason he keeps sticking with the team is that he provides quality depth without the problems of a guy who can't handle being a healthy scratch for weeks on end. When I say quality depth I mean penalty killing and general mucking and grinding ... NOT scoring.

Plus, if Daniels is in the press box that means a younger guy is getting actual icetime in Lowell.

That's the theory anyway.
