What a blessing to have genuine, on the ice Hurricanes hockey to talk about again!

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the core group that made the coffee shop active and fun on even the slowest up days during the offseason. During many news-less days in July and August especially, I personally looked forward to seeing others’ thoughts and opinions on our hockey team. The next leg up is to make sure we welcome newcomers as hockey season returns and hopefully the number of participating visitors increases.

Today’s Coffee Shop hones in on what we have seen so far in training camp and also looks to predict the future based on it.

Discussion questions


1) If you are new to the Coffee Shop, please consider (it is not required) briefly introducing yourself. The more the merrier here with a goal of making any and all Hurricanes fans feel comfortable chiming in on the discussion.

2) What is the biggest surprise so far in training now almost halfway through the 7-game slate and nearly a week since the first practice?

3) After seeing (or at least reading and hearing about) three preseason games, who do you like to seize a roster slot from off the depth chart, and why?



Go Canes!
