BT’s 10 Bold 2010-11 NHL Predictions: The Carolina Hurricanes

With the Junior Hockey pre-season underway in the Canadian Hockey League, some fans are getting a last look at their favorite stars before they head off to make their mark on NHL training camps. Some will get sent back down, some won't.

One of the teams dealing with that interesting decision are the Carolina Hurricanes and seventh-overall pick Jeff Skinner. The 'Canes won't keep Skinner unless he can play meaningful minutes, and the Kitchener Rangers would undoubtedly love to have him back, so fans of both teams will be eagerly watching to see what happens.

While Skinner's always made for a good, open and honest interview, I don't know if he'd ever do something like this.

Anyways, time for the bold (and not so bold) picks:

This one is difficult. Ward can win as many as 40 games (which was the original prediction) if everything falls in to place, or he could finish closer in the 32-35 area if the younger guys on the 'Canes roster don't pull up their socks. Ward is an undeniable talent who will re-assert himself as a top-seven (at least) goalie in the league this year.
