Could Ray Whitney make another go-round in Raleigh this spring?

A successful January has launched the Carolina Hurricanes onto the crest of the postseason as the Olympics and NHL trade deadline approach.

General manager Jim Rutherford is in position to assume a buyer stance for the first time since 2010-11 as the 'Canes seek to load up for a playoff push.

The Mar. 5 deadline looms on the horizon, but the Olympic trade freeze—which lasts from Feb. 7 to Feb. 23—could create more urgency on transactions. Rutherford told ESPN earlier this month that he expects most teams to treat Feb. 7 as a pseudo-deadline.

Which players might he attempt to bring into Raleigh for the Hurricanes' spring marathon? A breakdown of eight reasonable targets falls on the coming slides.
