Thoughts from a Cane's fan:
The Hurricanes have been looking into moving Whitney, and he would be a great fit on the pens. He's a very smart player on the wing, and would fit in well with Crosby- he can score, and he can set up plays, which plays well with Crosby's newfound shooting.
That said, he's going to be shopped around, so the price would be pretty high. A Guy his age still producing at around a PPG who's won a few cups, that's valuable come deadline day. You're not going to see him come cheap. But he would be valuable to teams looking to win in the playoffs.
That said, he has a NTC, and our GM has flat out stated that Whitney would have the final say in any deal, and if he says no, that he won't press him. That means he may not be moving at all, so even if there are 20 possible deals lined up and ready to go, it still may not happen.
