    Day 5 – Carolina Hurricanes

    Carolina likely is the deepest system in terms of wealth of high quality prospects on defense. The organization needs more offensive production outside of Jeff Skinner and Eric Staal. However many of their forward prospects have been pushed too soon or are not quite ready. The recent crop of defensive prospects is on the verge of being ripe for NHL roles. Justin Faulk was the first one to successfully make the jump and Jamie McBain is slowly progressing. Ryan Murphy is the crown jewel but other prospects along the blueline like Mark Alt and Danny Biega look to have the makings of valuable NHL careers. There is still time for their forward prospects like Zach Boychuk and Zac Dalpe to reach their potential. However the system lacks a truly elite forward prospect with long term prospect, Victor Rask still a few years away. The Canes also got a steal late in this year’s draft, when they picked up the athletic and fundamentally sound Collin Olson, who should be their goaltender of the future.

    D- Ryan Murphy (CAN) Kitchener Rangers
    5’11” 176 lbs, 19 years

    Murphy has offensive potential that is through the roof and he has impressed the Carolina Hurricanes management in his first training camp last preseason. He has made strides on his defensive game so he no longer should be considered a boom or bust prospect based solely off of that perception. He could end up being a Sergei Gonchar-esque player. His concussion history is a bit of a concern. The departure of Kitchener Rangers’ captain, Gabriel Landeskog for the Colorado Avalanche left a hole in the Kitchener’s lineup for veteran producers. Now that Landeskog’s predecessor in the team’s captaincy, Michael Catennaci has transferred to EG Dusseldorf of the German DEL league, their lineup features two likely 2012 NHL Entry draftees, Radek Faksa and Matia Marcantuoni. Despite his junior team in need of a leader, Murphy likely will not be back in Kitchener. He should be getting power play minutes but limited full strength time as the Hurricanes ease him into professional action.

    Projection: Offensive defenseman
    Potential Upside: 40-45 points (Sergei Gonchar)
    ETA: 2012-13

    C- Zac Dalpe (CAN) Charlotte Checkers
    6’1’’ 194 lbs, 22 years

    There were high expectations for Dalpe heading into the 2011-12 season, which, proved to be more of a burden than a boost. The pre-season praise is not unwarranted since Dalpe has good size and very strong offensive skills. He visibly became frustrated on the ice with the Hurricanes and his confidence took a while to recover while he played for the AHL Charlotte Checkers. Carolina likely will be very cautious about pushing Dalpe too much too soon again since they will try to avoid a Josh Bailey on Long Island type of issue. Given the proper time to grow and enough confidence, Dalpe should be a very strong offensive forward in the future.

    Projection: Top six forward
Potential Upside: 40-50 points (Olli Jokinen)
    ETA: 2013-14
