Erik Haula

I’ve really enjoyed watching Haula play this season. He plays with a ton of tenacity and energy that spreads to the rest of the team. He gradually found his place on the roster as the season wore on.

With that said, I don’t expect Haula to return. It looks like a one and done situation for him in Nashville. Poile should go a different direction with this roster in terms of forwards and free up space for other up-and-comers within the pipeline.

It’s a been a major topic of conversation that this team has a logjam of forwards which made for some difficult lineups decisions, especially when the playoffs got here.

Unfortunately as much as I became a fan of Haula and the way he played, I’m expecting him to go elsewhere this offseason. It was fun having him here for at least one season, and also seeing him tick off Hurricanes fans.
