NHL Free Agency 2013: Which UFAs Should the Carolina Hurricanes Re-Sign?

Unlike the groundbreaking summer of 2012, the Carolina Hurricanes' 2013 offseason is on path to be a rather quiet one.

None of the team's key cornerstone players will be faced with the pressure of an expiring contract this coming July. GM Jim Rutherford will have relatively few tough decisions to make, at least regarding the free agency aspect of the offseason.

Only a few second- and third-pairing defensemen, a couple of underachieving bottom-six forwards, a backup goaltender and a swath of minor leaguers will be potentially hitting the market.

Regardless, the 'Canes will still have some choices to make and a few sad goodbyes to push through.

Which upcoming free agents should they seek to re-sign for new deals, and which should go ahead and part ways? Our player-by-player breakdown and prediction falls on the coming slides.
