Key Contributors Toward Carolina Hurricanes Stanley Cup Odds

Carolina struggled early in the season, with injuries a factor, but has had a great second half. The team's leading scorer is Finnish star Sebastian Aho, who had 87 points through 76 games.

A key factor in the second-half surge has been the return of goalie Frederik Andersen, who had a 12-2-0 record and sterling .931 save percentage, from injury.

  • โญ๏ธ Frederik Andersen: There was some real doubt whether Andersen would return at all this season after developing blood clots, but he did and he's been fabulous in net since. His goals-against average of 1.83 and save percentage of .931 are superb.
  • โญ๏ธ Sebastian Aho: The 26-year-old forward got off to a bit of a slow start, not helped any by an injury, but he's been excellent and durable the past few months. Aho is a fast skater with quick hands and an accurate shot.
  • โญ๏ธ Seth Jarvis: The 13th overall selection in the 2020 NHL draft, Jarvis has well-exceeded his point total of last season (63-39) with three games still to play. At just 21, Jarvis is a potential future NHL All-Star.
  • โญ๏ธ Jordan Staal: At 35, Staal is still a key player for the Hurricanes as a checking forward and penalty killer. While not the speedster of old, Staal uses his smarts and guile to still be a productive third-line forward.
  • โญ๏ธ Andrei Svechnikov: The second overall pick of the 2018 NHL draft, Svechnikov overcame earlier-season injuries to have another good season to this point. One more goal and he'll achieve 20 goals or more for the third straight season.

Other key contributors to the Carolina Hurricanes include veteran defensemen Brent Burns and Brady Skjei, as well as forwards Martin Necas and Teuvu Teravainen.

Hurricanes Strengths & Weaknesses

๐Ÿ“ˆ Strengths

The Carolina Hurricanes have a young, fast and productive top-six forward group on the roster, led by Aho.

Goalie Frederik Andersen, healthy again after a lengthy absence because of blood clots, has some of the best statistics of any goalie in the NHL.

Carolina also has had superb special teams all regular season, tied for second in the NHL at 26.9% on the power play and first in penalty-killing at 86.4%.

๐Ÿ“‰ Weaknesses

The Hurricanes have been good, but not great, away from home this season. They need to prove they can win big games on the road still.

They could use a little more scoring from the bottom two linesโ€”always a key component for a team if it wants to have a long Stanley Cup playoff run.

Carolina Hurricanes Stanley Cup Playoff Outlook

The Carolina Hurricanes are firmly in the mix to becoming 2024 Stanley Cup champions. In fact, oddsmakers believe they're the favorites to win it all.

If they can close out the series against the Islanders, they'll see another New York team in the Rangers in Round 2. 

From there, they'll need to defeat one of Florida, Boston or Toronto in the Eastern Conference Final.

And if they make it to the Stanley Cup Final, they'll face one of the eight Western Conference teams still alive.

Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Preview

  • โญ๏ธ Potential Opponent: New York Islanders
  • ๐Ÿ“Š Current Odds: Hurricanes -3000
  • ๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction: Hurricanes in 6

The Islanders have made a big push for a playoff spot, led by new coach Patrick Roy. With skilled, young forwards such as Mathew Barzal and Noah Dobson, along with veterans Bo Horvat and Brock Nelson, the Islanders are capable of winning on any given night.

But the Hurricanes are clearly the better team in this first-round matchup.

Eastern Conference Semifinals Preview

  • โญ๏ธ Potential Opponent: New York Rangers
  • ๐Ÿ“Š Implied Probability: TBD
  • ๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction: Hurricanes in 7

This would be a tough series, as the Rangers finished the regular season with the most points (114) among all NHL teams and swept Washington in Round 1.

First-year Rangers coach Peter Laviolette, a former Carolina coach, has gotten an excellent season from his team, particularly forwards Artemi Panarin and Vincent Trocheck. In my opinion, the Hurricanes' younger legs would prevail in a lengthy series.

Plus, oddsmakers align with me, as they still list the Hurricanes as Stanley Cup favorites.

Eastern Conference Finals Preview

  • โญ๏ธ Potential Opponent: Boston Bruins
  • ๐Ÿ“Š Implied Probability: TBD
  • ๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction: Hurricanes in 7

These two Eastern rivals have had some memorable playoff series, with the Hurricanes having lots of success. Boston was the prohibitive Stanley Cup favorite last season after setting an NHL record for most regular-season wins, but were upset in the first round by the Florida Panthers.

Carolina would have a slight edge in goal if these teams met, as Boston's goaltenders remain unproven in the playoffs, and Andersen is arguably the hottest goalie in the league.

NHL Stanley Cup Final Preview

  • โญ๏ธ Potential Opponent: Colorado Avalanche
  • ๐Ÿ“Š Implied Probability: TBD
  • ๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction: Avalanche in 6

This would be a fun series to watch, as both teams are young and love to play at high speed. The outcome probably would come down to overall depth, and the Avalanche has just a little more of it than the Hurricanes right now.

Colorado has superstar players in likely Hart Trophy winner Nathan MacKinnon and reigning Norris Trophy champ Cale Makar. Carolina can't quite match that level of firepower.
