Exactly. I've seen Skoula to the Hurricanes for a long time as simply inevitable. It's strange how you get that feeling about players sometimes. The only thing that was holding JR back was the system that Paul Maurice employed wasn't that receptive to the offensive minded defenseman and one mistake in a game could blow it.
Laviolette is hungry for a powerplay quarterback, and Colorado is hungry for depth on the blueline. Especially after losing Blake for the stretch run. I'd say this deal is VERY likely to go down. I've just got this feeling.
