The Canes likely will make a number of player changes before next season but there will be no major organizational overhaul, Jim Rutherford said Thursday.
Rutherford will remain president and general manager. Kirk Muller and his coaching staff will return intact. The only change of note will be a new director of professional scouting to succeed Marshall Johnston, who will continue to scout some games.
"I feel good about our whole staff," Rutherford said. "We have a good coaching staff. This coaching staff has been in a tough spot, where they come in halfway through last year, got the team going at the end, then come in this year and don't have a normal season. But I feel good about our coaching staff, feel good about our whole staff. ... We have a real strong hockey staff."
