Francis Rebuild Needs New Direction

If there’s one thing Carolina Hurricanes fans know about Ron Francis, it’s that he’s precise. He knows what he wants when he wants it and he’s not afraid to go against the grain to get it. Since becoming the club’s general manager in 2014, Francis started to rebuild the team and he’s already having a huge impact. His approach to rebuilding differs from the typical rebuild...

A goalie, a goalie! My Kingdom for a goalie! Canadian King Richard III…we think. Don’t quote us on that. Here we are Carolina Hurricanes fans.  After weaving so many rationalizations to convince ourselves that Cam Ward and Eddie Lack would work out this season, we now find ourselves holding only tatters of our dreams of goalie […] Carolina Hurricanes Trades: Can We Get A...

Hurricanes Sliding Into Their October Groove

The Carolina Hurricanes are sliding into their October groove. While they have not accumulated the full complement of points that they had legitimate shots at so far this season, they have played hard and are beginning to find a good comfort level with one another.

Hurricanes Fans, “At Least We Got a Point”

Carolina Hurricanes fans got a roller coaster ride to open the 2016-17 season. Their team’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets was epic in its emotional curvature. The ‘Canes had a 4-1 lead in the third period and lost. The overwhelming post-game sentiment among the fans is, “At least we got a point.” That’s one way to look at it, but there is another view that is not...

2016-17 Season Preview: Carolina Hurricanes

Just like the Devils who I wrote about yesterday, the Carolina Hurricanes overachieved quite a bit reaching 86 points. Young defensemen really stepped up giving the Canes one of the best young bluelines in the league. They'll need better goaltending this season and the young forwards to now take that step to make the push into the playoffs. While I don't think they get there because...

Mike Morrison gives great interview after last outing for Coastal Carolina

Mike Morrison put together one heck of an outing for Coastal Carolina in his final appearance ever for the Chants, and he was very sentimental about the experience.

Hurricanes’ decision to extend Cam Ward is both unnecessary and an overpayment

The Carolina Hurricanes have announced the club has reached a two-year, $6.6 million deal with goaltender Cam Ward. Bob McKenzie reports the deal features a modified no-trade clause. The netminder was an unrestricted free agent. The move comes as a bit of a surprise.
