Carolina made two blockbuster deals in the first summer under new owner Tom Dundon, moving out Noah Hanifin, Elias Lindholm and Jeff Skinner, while receiving in return Adam Fox, Cliff Pu, Micheal Ferland, three draft picks, and, most importantly Dougie Hamilton.

Enough can’t be said about the team’s possession monsters of a defensive unit, which may be the league’s best six-man unit. Led by Jaccob Slavin and Brett Pesce, Carolina has three solid pairs that were only bolstered by the Hamilton acquisition. But while the team’s great at controlling the play, the men behind them were horrific last season at keeping the puck out of the net.

Franchise goaltender Cam Ward moved onto a new team for the first time in his career, signing with the Chicago Blackhawks to backup Corey Crawford. The Canes added Petr Mrazek on a one-year deal worth $1.5 million, which could end up being a steal if he’s able to play like he did early in his Detroit career. Scott Darling wasn’t able to keep up as a #1 goaltender last season, but with three years left on his deal, Carolina is hoping he’ll be able to figure it out soon.

Offensively, Carolina has some pieces that are on the way to becoming among the league’s best. Sebastian Aho is one of the league’s best second round picks in years, putting up 65 points in his sophomore season. Second overall pick Andrei Svechnikov was a goal scoring machine for the OHL’s Barrie Colts, while Teuvo Teravainen put up 64 points in 82 games this past season as a 22-year old.

But in moving out Skinner, the team lost one of its top scoring assets, receiving a package that’s played precisely zero NHL games in return. It’s a tough pill to swallow for a team riding the NHL’s longest playoff drought streak.

In the front office, the team moved on from Ron Francis and coach Bill Peters, hiring franchise legend Rod Brind’Amour as their head coach while shifting Don Waddell into the general manager role.

Carolina currently has over $18 million in cap space, which they could use in turn to acquire a bad contract or two in favour of a good piece coming the other way. If they’re willing to do that is a whole different story, but it’s not something that would be completely out of the realm of possibility.

Carolina could surprise this season, as their advanced statistics showed signs of being a snakebitten team. But their roster still leaves much to be desired, with it lacking truly elite scoring talent instead of just a collection of very good forwards. It could be in their best interests to stay near the bottom of the league for just one more season in order to land a high draft pick, as this team doesn’t look like the type that’s just quite ready to do significant postseason damage.
