Unless I am missing something (super possible) the hurricanes have center depth issues. Rask and Staal being the 1-2 but Rask is currently injured. Hayes can be a solid 2c or a monster 3c. Can play on the PK and PP. Also can move to the wing and just be a solid top 6 guy. Extremely hard to knock off the puck. Not the best skater but far from a liability. Also being 6'5 doesn't hurt. Carolina interested? If so what you think is fair coming back? Rangers are very much at the start of a rebuild as i think Carolina is in bubble team teritory. Getting Svechnikov is massive in moving them closer to contending. Is my assessment of Carolina off? If not what would the fans be willing to part with as far as youth or picks? I would say the rangers could take on a bad contract but besides staal being a hair over paid i don't see one on the team.
