Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the News & Observer,
The top priority on Carolina’s list is third-line center, which was a serious problem spot last season when first Eric Belanger and then Vasicek failed to fill the void left by Matt Cullen’s free-agent departure last summer. Vasicek, an unrestricted free agent, may not be re-signed.
“We need more production from that position,” Rutherford said. “That’s not to say Joe couldn’t do it, because he’s done it in the past.”
Stars such as Chris Drury, Daniel Briere and Scott Gomez will be far out of Carolina’s price range, but Michael Peca or Todd White might fit. Michal Handzus, who missed the entire season with a torn knee ligament, would be ideal but may be too expensive despite the injury.
