All that aside, the Canes don't need or want a guy to play a 3C checking role when that's not his forte. That's especially true if the cost is a 1st rounder.
His new "forte" is, and has been since the 2010-11 trade deadline, is a 3rd line player. Defensively sound, quick, and can PK at an NHL level.
