Project update and future plans

With October just around the corner, I want to give everyone an update on where I am with my All Three Zones Project. I’m in the final stages of tracking games and am aiming to have the data sent to everyone who donated within the next few weeks. For those wondering how they will get access to the […]

Justin Faulk vs. Team USA’s Other Defensemen

Those eager to see Justin Faulk play in this year's Olympics are pretty disappointed right now, as the Hurricanes young defenseman has yet to see the ice. He was scratched in all three games in the preliminary round and is currently listed as the team's 8th defenseman, which means he probably won't get into the […]

Lost Identity

It would take a few pages to explain all of the problems with the Carolina Hurricanes this year. Their payroll suggests that they should be a playoff team, but the reality is they have a lot of money tied up in players who are either overvalued and/or injured. It's been this way for a couple […]

Eastern Conference Point Pace Update

Following the playoff race is always exciting if you're a fan of the team in the hunt but at the same time, it can also make you want to pull your hair out. This is especially true if your team is clinging to life for it's playoff spot like the Carolina Hurricanes currently are. They […]

Hurricanes Trade Deadline Outlook

With only five games remaining before the trade deadline, the Hurricanes find themselves in an interesting but uncommon position. They are only one point out of a playoff spot with games in hand against some of the teams they are competing with, but most would argue that this isn't a playoff team. The Canes have […]

Elias Lindholm assigned to Charlotte

The Hurricanes released some shocking news yesterday when they announced that the team is sending rookie Elias Lindholm to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. This decision might come across as controversial because Lindholm has already played 10 games and many thought Lindholm would be in the NHL to stay now that the […]

The Airing of Grievances

I have been running this blog for almost three years and by now, most people know my shtick. Whenever the team goes through a rough stretch or has a problem, I like to dive into the numbers or go over the game tape to break down what happened and what the Hurricanes can do to […]

Hurricanes sign Manny Malhotra

A signing that went relatively unnoticed a few weeks ago was the Charlotte Checkers signing veteran center Manny Malhotra to a professional tryout contract. A former first round pick, Malhotra has been in the league for 14 years and while he has never lived up to his draft status, he has built a reputation as […]

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update: 10/28/13

The past week brought some mixed results for the Hurricanes prospect pool, as there were a couple of players who put up big numbers while a few others had some ugly performances. The good far outweighs the bad, though as Sergey Tolchinsky and Brock McGinn continued to light it up for their respective teams with […]

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update 10/22/2013

This was one of those rare weeks where the Hurricanes success was coupled with some good results from their prospects. The Canes OHL pool has been playing rather well this year as three of their prospects currently lead their respective teams in points and two of them are in the top 10 of the league. […]

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update 10/14/2013

It's that time of the week where we'll step away from Hurricanes news to discuss what has been going on with some of their prospects. Last week, they had three prospects leading their respective OHL clubs in points and saw big performances from forwards Sergey Tolchinsky and Brock McGinn. Who stood out in the Canes […]

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update 10/7/2013

With the OHL season being a couple weeks old and college hockey just around the corner, it's now time for our weekly review of the Hurricanes prospects. The team's prospect pool isn't as widespread as it was last year, as most of their junior players have graduated to the professional level but there is some […]

Red Wings at Hurricanes: A preview of sorts

After months of previewing and speculating, the 2013-14 season is finally here for the Carolina Hurricanes and they face a very tough test tonight when they take on the Detroit Red Wings. I never like to read into opening night results that much because it's only one game, but after how the last two season […]

Plans for 2013-14

There has been a lot going on for me the last couple of months and I thought it would be a good idea to give you all a heads up on everything  that has been going on for me lately and how it will effect this blog. First off, I'll just say that this blog […]

Hurricanes opening night roster set (kinda)

With the roster needing to be trimmed down to 23 players by 5 p.m. today, many fans were hoping that the Hurricanes roster situation would be cleared up by now. Unfortunately, the roster the Hurricanes submitted left everyone with more unanswered questions. According to the statement released by the Canes today, the Hurricanes "opening night" […]
