With their loss on Saturday, Carolina has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

The Hurricanes have now missed the playoffs for seven straight seasons, which is second only to the Edmonton Oilers. At least this will be a step up from last season as Carolina has 84 points in 79 games thus far compared to 71 points in 82 contests in 2014-15. As the 2015-16 record suggests, the Hurricanes are a decent, but not good team this season. They have some potential going forward and depending on how their summer goes, it wouldn't be shocking to see Carolina end its playoff drought next year.

The Carolina Hurricanes are 6-2-6 since the February 29 trade deadline.

The Hurricanes were sellers and not buyers and that is why their record is so surprising as it was assumed Carolina would fall in the standings and not rise. Their six non-regulation losses could have been helped by some timely scoring but that's what happens when you trade an Eric Staal. Nevertheless, the future is starting to finally look bright in Carolina with a young blueline and some good young forwards like Elias Lindholm, Jeff Skinner and Victor Rask.

With the Carolina Hurricanes' struggling, Hurricanes GM Ron Francis offered his support of coach Bill Peters.

"I think we’re a well-coached team," Francis said. "I think you see that on a night-in, night-out basis. It’s more a matter of executing properly and more consistently." Carolina is just 6-10-2 this season, putting it well on its way to missing the playoffs for a seventh straight campaign. The Hurricanes' roster isn't particularly impressive, so it's not surprising that they possess a poor record.

The Carolina Hurricanes have been struggling in five-on-five situations.

Carolina has been outscored 28-17 in five-on-five play. "I think we’ve done a good job of not giving up much and our offense is slowly coming," Jordan Staal said. "You can always get better at each end, but we take pride of not giving up much five on five and I think we’ve done a good job." Regardless, the Hurricanes need to start getting better results at even strength if they want to claw their way into the playoffs this season. As things stand, they're 6-8-0.

The Carolina Hurricanes are only 1-4 on home ice this season.

The Hurricanes are going to have to do a whole lot better than that if they hope to compete for a playoff spot. They are currently 5-8 overall and tied for 12th in the standings of the Eastern Conference.

Carolina Hurricanes coach Bill Peters wasn't happy with his team's performance in their 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

"I didn’t think we had much — of anything," Peters said. "There weren’t many aspects, many areas of the game that I liked. I didn’t think we started on time and I didn’t think we competed. I didn’t think we won any races and we didn’t look like we were hungry to get to the puck." Carolina has fallen to 0-3-0 this season and is about to start a seven-game road trip. There weren't many people predicting that this would be a good season for Hurricanes to begin with and this slow start only fuels the popular opinion.

Coach Bill Peters isn't pleased with how Carolina's first two preseason games have gone.

Carolina lost both contests, which isn't that big of a deal when you're talking about exhibition matches. Rather than the final score though, the issue is that the Hurricanes weren't competing hard enough, according to Peters. "Some guys were caught on the big stage, maybe, who weren't quite ready but that's what this time of year is for," he added. That being said, he also wasn't happy with a line consisting of Jeff Skinner, Victor Rask and Elias Lindholm, which is a young trio, but also one with enough experience that playing on the big stage shouldn't be an excuse for them.

After working with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2014-15 on a part-time basis, Eric Tulsky has been hired to the position of Hockey Analyst.

He is expected to provide and analyze data to assist the hockey operations department and coaching staff. "Eric is an extremely intelligent person and has been an innovator in the field of advanced analytics," said GM Ron Francis. "We found the information he provided last season to be extremely valuable and are glad that he will be with us on a full-time basis."

The Carolina Hurricanes will be busy on Friday and Saturday during the upcoming Draft.

The Hurricanes have 10 picks in the seven round event, including the number five selection. There are plenty of rumors as to who they will take and Noah Hanifin could fall to them if Dylan Strome is taken by Arizona and the Toronto Maple Leafs go forward or even Ivan Provorov. It will be an interesting two days for the Hurricanes.

The Carolina Hurricanes announced that chief financial officer Mike Amendola will be replaced by Dennis Moore.

Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos described it as a mutual decision. Amendola had been with the Hurricanes' organization since 1981. At the time of his departure, he was Carolina's longest-tenured front-office employee.

Jeff Daniels will not return as the head coach of the AHL Charlotte Checkers.

The Checkers are affiliated with the Carolina Hurricanes. Daniels spent seven seasons as the bench boss for the Hurricanes' AHL squad, posting a 268-225-51 record. "We appreciate the years of service and hard work that Jeff provided for our organization," Carolina GM Ron Francis said. "His contract expires at the end of June, and we will now begin the process of finding a new head coach for the Checkers." Charlotte didn't make the playoffs in 2014-15.

Hurricanes GM Ron Francis gave his endorsement of coach Bill Peters despite Carolina's rough 2014-15 campaign.

Carolina went 30-41-11 in Peters' first season as the team's bench boss. "I thought the coaching staff did a great job," Francis said. "You start off 0-6-2 and there's a real potential at that time for things to go south in a hurry. But I thought Bill (Peters) never changed his message. We came into this with a message about what we wanted our team to do, and compete and have accountability in moving forward and they continued to do that even through a tough stretch. You look at our team and down the stretch we never quit. We continued to work and play hard. There was improvement." Despite that the Hurricanes have now missed the playoffs in six straight seasons. While the decision to retain Peters isn't surprising given it was his first season, a bad start to 2015-16 might be all it takes to put his job in jeopardy.
