Today, when the Hurricanes open their preseason schedule against the Capitals, many Caniacs will get their first view of Brandon Sutter. The high-profile rookie will be part of the "game group" today, which is always a mix of veterans and camp invitees.
If Sutter can play with the intensity that he displayed in the Super Series, it will be hard to ignore. Since LaRose is injured, there is one roster spot open, so he has a chance. However, as I said before, it's most likely to be Keith Aucoin.
I'm not sure who else of the prospects will be skating, but the veterans will be Erik Cole, Eric Staal, Justin Williams, Cory Stillman, Trevor Letowski, Mike Commodore, Dennis Seidenberg, Tim Gleason and John Grahame.
I'll be arriving a little bit early to drink a few adult beverages in the parking lot. Anyone who knows my number should call or text me.
