Will the Hawks target Versteeg?

As for staying alive in the playoffs, I still think they need a little more depth at forward. If they can somehow land a top-six forward, preferably a left wing (I might be alone on this, but I think Kris Versteeg is a really intriguing option who can fit right in), that would allow Andrew Shaw to move back to his more traditional role on the third or fourth line.

Is Staal’s time in Carolina finally up?

Cox discussed Eric Staal’s situation in Carolina, saying that he’s been in a kind of limbo waiting to see if his time with the Hurricanes is finally up. Staal is a UFA at the end of this season. His agent will reportedly have a meeting with Hurricanes brass some time next week.

Will the Hurricanes trade Eris Staal?

The uncertainty, Eric Staal admits, has weighed upon him more than he has let on at times. It isn’t just about playing out the final year of his contract without knowing what comes next. As a player, he can deal with that. As a husband and father and brother, it gets a little tougher.

Is a swap for a Staal and a Kessel good for both teams and both players?
