With election day in the United States on Tuesday, voting is at the forefront of the news. As far as the Canes go, the tumultuous ride through 10 games of the 2016-17 season could make for some interesting votes. What should the Hurricanes do with the goalie position? Who is the Hurricanes best player right now? Is this team still in rebuilding mode and a couple of years away or just off to a slow start? And so on, and so on…

This week’s Sunday Canes Chronicle offers a batch of articles from around the internet that shine light on some of these questions.


Brett Pesce

Matthew Barlowe from Cardiac Cane offers statistical evidence that at least statistically Brett Pesce may have a claim to being the Hurricanes best defender.

This week at Canes and Coffee, I wrote about next steps for the Hurricanes young defensemen in terms of development.



Daniel Goffenberg at Sportsnet.ca names the Hurricanes as 1 of 5 teams that might be interested in Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak.

Nicholas Niedzielski from the Charlotte Checkers web site checks in on Curtis Joseph’s role as goaltender consultant for the Hurricanes and his role in Charlotte.

At the beginning of the week, I made the outlandish suggestion that the Hurricanes should give 1 of this weekend’s 2 starts to red hot Charlotte Checkers goalie Michael Leighton.


Caniac happiness

JC Bobbit at Section 328 wrote a well-timed article about bright spots for Hurricanes fans.

This week also saw the launch of “The Bus” at Canes and Coffee which is a new initiative to similarly highlight positives and also help grow our Hurricanes fan base.


Hockey Fights Cancer

Sunday is Hockey Fights Cancer night for the Carolina Hurricanes. Kurt Dusterberg from NHL.com writes about the impact of cancer on the lives of Bryan Bickell and Bill Peters.


Go Canes!
