This is the week the informal workouts at Raleigh Center Ice are slated to begin. Yes, Hurricanes back on the ice.
No one knows when training camp will start. No one can say when the season will start. Until there's a newly approved CBA, it's all a big guessing game.
But the question for now: when the season does start, which player promises to have the most interesting year for the Canes?
Will it be one of the newbies, Jordan Staal or Alexander Semin? Jeff Skinner? Maybe a rejuvenated Eric Staal, playing with his brother? Justin Faulk, in his second season? A healthy Joni Pitkanen?
Hope everyone is having a good holiday. The floor is open.
