Carolina Hurricanes: This week during a prospect conditioning camp, Eric Staal is showing Carolina fans and club officials why he was drafted second overall. But the slim center looks like an 18-year-old and that is the biggest obstacle preventing Staal from making the Hurricanes once training camp starts. Buffalo Sabres: The Sabres are close to re-signing restricted free agent center Curtis Brown, according to The Buffalo News. That will leave the club with four unsigned players: center Chris Drury, wingers Miroslav Satan and Ales Kotalik and defenseman Jay McKee.
