    Following a dominant 8 1 win for the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Carolina Hurricanes Klas Dahlbeck Jersey, head coach Bill Peters needs to change his defensive strategy.

    After a thoroughly embarrassing performance from the Carolina Hurricanes, on both sides of the ice, in a convincing defeat against the Toronto Maple Leafs, it’s time for a real shakeup. The Canes did not come with their best effort on Dec. 19, coming off a three game winning streak.

    Head coach Bill Peters tried to juggle the lines, for both the forwards and defense, but without much success. The combination of Justin Faulk and Noah Hanifin really did not work out well for Peters and the Canes. Faulk finished the 8 1 defeat with a plus/minus as a 2 and Hanifin finished with a 3, two of the worst among all of the defensemen on the team.

    Even Jaccob Slavin and Brett Pesce struggled for much of the game. Haydn Fleury was actually the only defender on the team that managed a point, assisting the team’s lone goal scored by Jeff Skinner. Peters had placed Fleury on the list of healthy scratches in the win over the Jackets on Dec. 17.

    Something has to give for the Canes at all positions, but it has to start with the defense. The strongest position group for Carolina entering the season was presumed to be this young and talented defensive core. They have not lived up to the hype, or anywhere close.

    There’s a lot of talent in the minor league system right now for the Canes as the AHL affiliate Charlotte Checkers are having a great season. Young and potent defensemen like Jake Bean, Roland McKeown, and Trevor Carrick are just waiting for their opportunities.
