Doesn't mean they'll pan out, but at least you get a shot!
One thing that will probably come into play in terms of the Canes draft position is the number of away games left. They have more away games (12) than any other team in the league. Oilers have 10, MTL has 10, NYI has 10, Ducks have 9, Tampa has 8, Minn has 7, Toronto has 10, Calgary has 7.

The Canes away record is only 7-14-8 this year. Even if I only look only at the January/February stretch, the Canes got 18 points in 12 games at home and 10 points in 10 games on the road.
