Flip the script. Who will hurt from the shortened season?
The shorter the season, the more it hurts the Hurricanes.
They just added two big pieces (J. Staal and Semin) to the core and will have virtually no time for them to gel with new linemates. They'll be in a sink-or-swim situation, especially Semin on his 1-year contract. Plus, Eric Staal is a notoriously slow starter and they just lost Ruutu for essentially the season.
I could honestly see them coming out 3-7 or something, and that's the end of our playoff hopes right there.
