The $1.7 million salary cap hit was very helpful to the Hurricanes' cause, giving them now 16 players at only $44.2 million. With the new cap number announced, the Hurricanes obviously thought it was a good time to put that kind of number together for Jokinen. There isn't too many more holes to fill this summer, but with the way that free agency is setting up, they can certainly be in the mix come playoff time in 2010.
