Calgary Flames trade Hamilton, Ferland, Fox to Carolina Hurricanes for Hanifin, Lindholm

As a Hurricanes fan, I'm very happy with this deal. Noah Hanifin has tremendous upside, but as my more knowledgeable hockey friends tell me, the guy doesn't have much hockey sense. Lindholm is, well, whatever, just meh. Both guys are going to be RFAs and frankly, whatever they're going to get, they won't be earning it.

Who knows, maybe they will both realize their potential one day, but I don't think that's going to happen under Bill Peters. I think the biggest positive impact on the Hurricanes so far this offseason is Peters walking away from the team.
