LINES, LINES, AND MORE LINES - TAKE ONE O'SULLIVAN

LINES, LINES, AND MORE LINES

The signing of Patrick O'Sullivan creates some very interesting line combinations for the Hurricanes.  Prior to the singing of Patrick O'Sullivan I was convinced that both Skinner and Dalpe would make the team out of training camp.  With the signing of Patrick O'Sullivan, if O'Sullivan makes the team out of training camp,  it seems to me that Dalpe's initial time with the Canes will have to wait. 

  With Tlusty having a one way contract, I have him included in these offensive lines.  In these lines, I have included O'Sullivan and Samsonov.  As long as Samsonov and O'Sullivan are on the Canes team, the openings for other players are quite restricted.  I have included Boychuk on the Canes team because based on what I've seen thus far, I think he will make the team out of training camp.  Cole seems to be playing some of his best hockey in a long, long time.  

  LaRose has become one of the major public faces for the Hurricanes; and I envision LaRose playing on all four lines at various times during this season.  His intangibles factor on and off the ice is extremely impressive.  I included O'Sullivan in these variations in part because he brings amazing offensive firepower; but it's too soon for anybody to know if he has committed himself to playing the physical, committed two way games required for him to succeed at Carolina.
