07:16 AM ET 04.30 | As with every offseason, Hurricanes players scatter to all corners of the globe now, many of whom won't be returning to Carolina. [The Hurricanes] have some tough decisions to make. General manager Jim Rutherford and Canes coach Kirk Muller say they like the "core group" of the team, but there should be a number of new faces next season. ... [Said Muller:] Some teams are in situations where they have to disrupt the whole nucleus. Our nucleus is good. We just have to make the right decisions in the summer." The Canes have six players due to become unrestricted free agent -- forwards Chad LaRose and Tim Brent; defensemen Joe Corvo, Bobby Sanguinetti and Marc-Andre Bergeron; and goaltender Dan Ellis. It's hard to say how many will be re-signed.

Another non-story. Team has a core nucleus, will replace spare parts. Yawn.

So, who would want any of their overpaid underachievers? I'd take Jeff Skinner but, beyond that, the team has Staaled.

Enough for a beer and a hot dog at the first playoff series eh? If you make it to round 2, only the beer.
