Projected to be fully recovered and 100 percent healthy following hip surgery, goalie Pekka Rinne still can't start every game for the Nashville Predators. And some might say there isn't an obvious candidate to fill in as the Predators' No. 2. However, Josh Cooper of the Tennessean reports Carter Hutton appears to be the favorite to back up Rinne, come fall. Despite the 27-year-old's lack on NHL experience.
