P.K Subban's Contract, Most Improved Team, Laviolette, CBA and More

Eric Staal - Montreal Canadiens v Carolina Hurricanes
Good AM Hab fans!

Usually, even square in the middle of summer, it's pretty easy to fill this brief segment and corresponding links.

But, today, today is a slow day. 

So, let me ask you a question: which team do you feel has most improved this off-season? 

Personally, I would have to give a very strong nod to the Carolina Hurricanes.

What about Minnesota Wild, they have to be somewhere on top of the list too.

I wouldn't say most improved, but I loved Detroit at the draft. Martin Frk and Anreas Athanasiou are both prospects who will surprise big-time. I'm also a big fan of their addition of Tootoo.


I suppose the Wild do have to be on the list, but when it comes to making a big splash, I like the wait-and-see approach. Too many times have teams loaded up only to have it backfire.


Perhaps Detroit did do well at the draft table - when don't they. But losing Lidstrom, Stuart and Hudler is going to hurt.
