If I'm a Hurricanes fan, I'm thrilled that Jeff Skinner is set to remain in Carolina all season. That's not to suggest the kid has got it all figured out. The scoring touch is evident and he's impressed with his puck protection and strength, but he hasn't got his play away from the biscuit mastered just yet. Still, he's the most exciting prospect the team has, and the thought of giving him a chance alongside Eric Staal at some point this season has to give a Caniac the giggles. Bottom line, Skinner betters the team's chances of making the playoffs this season...and makes the 'Canes a lot more fun to watch.
