  1. For the love of everything good in this world the Hurricanes CANNOT move Khubodin. He is in the prime of his career and can start pushing Cam Ward for the starters role. They can have a good thing of the two splitting games next season and then make a choice of who to keep from there. If Peters has some value they can move him, if they have to make a choice, I love Ward he played amazing in helping the Canes get the cup and has a career winning record but Khobodin is going to be better. Ward isn’t going to get them back to the promised land, but will fetch them a return that will help get them there.
