    Hockey is Fun Again

    Can't get over where we are from where we started. I keep reflecting on where we started and where we are this morning! No one on this board predicted the Hurricanes would be a playoff team this season. No one! (I stand corrected-- see comments below!)...

    GDT: Boston Bruins @ Carolina Hur, err, Whalers? 12/23/18 at 5PM

    The Hurricanes will sport Hartford Whaler uniforms today-- kelly green and blue. On of the best crests ever designed. Unfortunately, the Canes enter today's tilt as one of the last teams in the Eastern Conference and having scored only one goal in their past two games. Here's hoping Santa is...

    GDT: Carolina v Toronto 10/26/17 @ 7:00PM

    The Hurricanes are back on the road tonight, playing the Toronto Maple Leafs at the ACC. Toronto is a fast, high scoring team. However, they struggle against teams that play a highly structured, patient game (see OTT). Anderson is playing .900 hockey, which is a concern, but given Toronto's...

    Offseason discussion

    Well, the season is over and no post-season for the Hurricanes. I'm guessing it's pretty safe to call it "off season" for our team. I anticipate hearing about exit interviews in the coming days and Ron Francis' comments about the season as a whole, etc... So, I guess we can do a catch-all off...

    2015: Free Agency Frenzy

    The 2015 NHL entry level draft is over, selections made and some dreams made and others were dashed. Free agency starts tomorrow and trades are still to be made. This will be the last flurry of activity before the league goes dormant for the summer and training camps start in September. Very...

    The Hurricanes Trades: speculation has ended and pieces are moving.

    Bob McKenzie reporting via Twitter that Tlusty has been traded to Winnipeg... No details yet Given the length of the last thread and all the speculation, thought a new thread might be in order.

    GDT: Carolina at Toronto 1/19/15 7:30PM

    The Carolina Hurricanes play their last game before the All Star break tonight in Toronto, taking on a Maple Leaf team that has been in a downward spiral. The Leafs' inconsistent play cost Randy Carlyle his job and since his departure, the Leafs have not improved. The Hurricanes are showing...

    GDT: Carolina Hurricanes v Washington Capitals- 11/8/14@8PM

    The Hurricanes take their four game winning streak to the nation's capital for a Saturday night showdown. For the Hurricanes, this truly has been a NO-vember. October's perfomance indicated that this would be a Canes team with no November wins-- we are now a team with no November losses. The...

    GDT: Los Angeles Kings versus Carolina Hurricanes 11/2/14@5PM

    Well, the Hurricanes did it! They not only won their first game of the season, they did it in fine fashion, pitching a shut out against the Arizona Coyotes. It was dominant play and a win on home ice. It was a game the Canes should have won and they did. Last night was Bill Peters first win as a...

There's always the tailgating- 82 degrees on a Friday afternoon, partly cloudy and only a small chance of rain. Of note, this...
