NEWARK, N.J. -- Coach Bill Peters doesn't hide the fact that the Carolina Hurricanes will likely be sellers at the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2.
The Hurricanes will play the New Jersey Devils, another team that could unload a few high-profile veterans at the deadline, at Prudential Center on Saturday.
"It's an unfortunate thing that we're sellers; nobody is hiding from that fact, and we put ourselves in this situation and we have to live with it," Peters said following the Hurricanes' morning skate. "You can tell the mood around the room isn't what it was. It's not as upbeat because there's a lot of uncertainty. A lot of guys are wondering what their future holds, so that's understandable and that's human nature."
