07:27 AM ET 08.23 | Carolina, which has missed the playoffs four seasons running, enters the 2013-14 season with a number of questions, not least of which is whether Cam Ward can stay healthy. [On March 3, the Hurricanes] lost Ward 8:56 into the second period with what was diagnosed as a third-degree sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He missed the remainder of the season, and with him went any hope of a playoff spot; the Hurricanes won seven of their final 27 games. Ward is 29 but played at least 68 games in four of five seasons prior to 2012-13, putting a lot of wear and tear on his body. Anton Khudobin, who went 9-4-1 in 14 games last season with the Boston Bruins, was brought in as the backup, but coach Kirk Muller said he expects Ward to be healthy when the season starts.

Khodobin was great for the Bruins last year, but I think Claude's system boosts goaltending numbers across the board. Cam Ward is an enigma to me. He looked like the next best goalie early in his career, but he seemingly has never reached his potential.
