Though it is not deep yet, the Hurricanes have officially started the season by digging another hole to climb out of. The teams’ 4-5-3 mark through 12 games is two points out of a playoff spot (adjusting for games played by measuring points above/below .500) and finds the team tied for last in the Metropolitan Division.
I have said a few times that the time to muster desperation is before things are completely desperate, and I think that is where the Hurricanes sit right now.
After returning home from a two-game road trip with a four-game losing streak (does include two OTL points) and with two days off before the next game, all eyes are on General Manager Ron Francis and Head Coach Bill Peters to see what levers they pull to try to find a higher gear.
Considering options available to find a higher gear is the subject of the Monday Coffee Shop polls and discussion.
