Power Rankings
A 4-3 loss to the Sabres probably didn't feel too good in a season where not much has felt good. If the Canes are feeling nasty, they could spoil the Red Wings' postseason hopes with two games against Detroit over their last three games.
The Hurricanes are in spoiler mode and nearly pulled out a win over the Bruins. They still have games against Washington, Florida and Detroit in which Carolina could prove disruptive.
Only 10 games remain in another forgettable season. It's been six years since the Hurricanes reached the Eastern Conference Final in their last playoff appearance. We'll see how Ron Francis does at remodeling.
The Hurricanes are pulling away from the bottom of the league, with 15 points between them and the lowly Sabres. They're still in line for a high draft pick, but the likelihood of getting Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel has grown slimmer with each win.
Carolina must not have this whole tanking thing down. They've won six of their last 10 and sit 27th in the league. They'll still get pretty lofty draft position, but their chances of nabbing one of Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel are getting slimmer.
The Hurricanes did a nice job in the week leading up to the deadline. They got a good prospect and first-round pick for Andrej Sekera, fair value for Jiri Tlusty and actually acquired legitimate assets for Tim Gleason. Not too shabby.
All eyes will be on the Hurricanes as they offload some of their expiring contracts. Getting all they can out of Andrej Sekera is probably the most positive thing the Canes can do this season now.
The Hurricanes are a team to watch at the deadline as they go into sell mode. Andrej Sekera and Jiri Tlusty could bring back some good assets to assist in retooling for next season.
All eyes should be on Andrej Sekera as the Hurricanes continue. He's one of Carolina's more valuable trade commodities, but the Canes would significantly impact their D by letting him go. It's a big decision here for Ron Francis.
The Hurricanes are playing like a team that hasn't given up. It won't help them this year as they're too far out of the race to climb back, but it's something to build off of for next year.
Preseason Power Rankings
The better question to ask the Hurricanes these days is "Who's healthy?" The answer, you'll probably find, is "no one." Stars Eric and Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner are all on the shelf.
