Quick reminder about our ongoing holiday sale/fundraiser. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated but $18.75 in North Carolina and $17.50 outside North Carolina also nets you a really cool Canes and Coffee cup.

It’s as simple as making a credit card or PayPal contribution by clicking on the PayPal link HERE and being sure to include your mailing address if you order a coffee cup.


Suddenly into the second third of the season, we have seen enough 2017-18 Carolina Hurricanes hockey to evaluate the team and also project what is in store for the rest of the season. The Daily Cup of Joe is a companion article that shares my thoughts on the same subject, but I hope everyone votes/comments here first so that we get unbiased opinions and the diversity of viewpoints that is easily the best thing about Canes and Coffee articles right now.

With that…The 2017-18 Carolina Hurricanes…Where are we? Where are we going?
