I know that Pitkanen has some issues with health right now but lets assume that he comes back OK
would the Canes be interested in something like WSH 2nd + Nick Palmieri? from what I gather, they are in need of NHL ready forward prospects and Palmieri fits the bill. Devils would also probably have to throw in some salary back the other way
Pitkanen is a great hockey player, no doubt, and hes on a very good contract, but I'm not a big fan of the way he plays the game in terms of intensity. He just doesn't seem to want it very badly and I've heard he can be a bit of a headcase.
I honestly wouldn't be interested unless the asking price was relatively low. Or you wanted to throw in Skinner
