Hurricanes get ready for playoffs

The Carolina Hurricanes might have won the Stanley Cup last year, but GM Grind Jam Grind insisted that they were not going to take the year off. Due to salary cap restrictions, the Hurricanes lost some key players, particularly defensemen, off their SC winning team, most notably Dan Girardi and Jamie McBain. However, they refilled these holes with their long-awaited prospects making an impact.

The rosters heading into the playoffs:

Skinner 89 - Couture 89 - Kane 88
Neal 84 - J. Staal 86 - Yakupov 85
Bowman 82 - Lindberg 81 - Jessey Astels 83*
Bryan Bickell 74 - T. Mitchell 77 - D. Smith-pelly 79

*Drafted in 2013, 100th overall, grinder, 3.5 yellow stars

Gardiner 86 - Jones 90
Joonas Valkonen 83* - Ekblad 85
Charles Johnson 81** - Connor Murphy
*DFD, drafted in 2013,38th overall, 3.5 yellow stars
**GRN , drafted in 2013, 121st overall, 3.5 yellow stars

Steven Veilluex 88
Jacob Blair 81
The Canes are 1st in the East. Logan Couture led the league in scoring with 88 points.

The Hurricanes are set to play the NY Islanders in the 1st round.
