For the last three seasons, the Carolina Hurricanes have wandered in the playoff wilderness.
This offseason general manager Jim Rutherford looks like hes not only trying to make sure that that doesnt happen again, but he looks like he wants to return the Hurricanes to being a serious player in the East.
Having already pulled off the trade with Pittsburgh for center Jordan Staal and then signed Staal to a 10-year, 60 million contract extension on Sunday, the Hurricanes are likely to appear on many prognosticators lists to find their way back to the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since the Canes reached the Eastern Conference Finals in 2009.

First, I wanted him to put a lot of focus on players who would give the Hurricanes a good bargain for his money. This meant looking for free agents who wouldn't cost a lot but had decent upside and could provide a decent amount of value. In addition to that, I wanted Rutherford to sign...

Jordan Staal signed a 10-year contract with Carolina on July 1
July 1 is viewed by many as the best day of the hockey year.
It’s the beginning of free agency. You know, that time when teams are awarded the Stanley Cup based on the money they’ve spent to bring in, and likely overpay, players. However, this year was much different. On a day dubbed “Free Agent Frenzy”, July...
