One bright spot in a mostly forgettable year for the Hurricanes was the emergence of Jiri Tlusty. The former first round pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs had a breakout season leading the team in goals with 23 and was a perfect fit on the first line with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin. Tlusty only turned 25 last March and was a high scorer in the AHL, so it's possible that what...
