Ray Whitney could be a interesting target once free agency starts on
Friday. He’s an experienced and still skilled forward who put up 58
points last season with Carolina.
While the Canes attempted to
reach an agreement with Whitney and his agent this past week, it looks
as though Whitney will be testing the market this summer.
Rutherford is still optimistic he signs with the Canes. Per Canes Now:
“We’re keeping the door open and hoping that he’ll come back to us,”
The team and Whitney’s agent were supposedly nowhere near close
financially on a potential deal, so now the Hurricanes hope that Whitney
isn’t overwhelmed by a better offer elsewhere. With the free agent
market not all that great this summer, it’s likely Whitney will find a
better deal with another team.
