Deservedly so, the Hurricanes game on Tuesday has created quite a commotion among the fan base. The 8-1 whooping at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs was obviously not the outcome that anyone hoped for if they managed to free up part of their afternoon to watch the odd 2pm matinee.
Today’s Daily Cup of Joe offers some context for the game, and today’s Daily Cup of Joe will also bandy it around one more time before another game hopefully gives everyone the opportunity to move forward.

Carolina Hurricanes discussion questions
1) What are your thoughts on the team’s erratic play/inconsistency? Is it a matter of youth? Is it a matter of learnign what it takes to win in the NHL? Is it simply a telltale sign of a team that is not that good? Or…?
2) Suddenly approaching the midway point of the 2017-18 season and needing to find a higher gear at some point, what changes would you make to the lineup right now in terms of lines, combinations and goalie? Is it time for a recall or two from Charlotte or a trade?
