Carolina Hurricanes GM on the Bo Horvat trade talks, rentals, and their 2023 first-round pick

Sean Gentille of The Athletic: The Carolina Hurricanes have $10 million in projected salary cap space heading into the March 3rd trade deadline.

Hurricanes GM and president Don Waddell said they were in on the Bo Horvat trade talks but the Vancouver Canucks were looking for the highest first-round pick they could get.

“He was trying to get the highest first-round pick that he possibly could get. He was right upfront about that from the start,” Waddell said. “Our pick’s gonna be, hopefully, someplace in the late 20s or so. Or the 30s. He set out with that as a mission and a goal, and he accomplished it. So I give him credit for that.”

Waddell said that adding players with term is something they prefer over giving up assets for rentals. They want to add but need to keep an eye on the future with Sebastian Aho, Martin Necas, Brady Skjei and Brett Pesce needing new contracts in 2024.

NHL Rumors: The Oilers and Karlsson, and Vitali Kravtsov asking for a trade

Waddel when asked if they would trade their 2023 first-round pick?

“I think so. We have different philosophies in this organization sometimes, but I think right now (the pick is available), particularly if we’re looking at players that do have term — again, the rental thing, I don’t want to say never, because you never know. If something (bad) happens, you might have to adjust your thinking and go a different course. But yeah, I think our first-round pick would be in play this year.”
