If you are just checking in after a weekend away from Canes hockey, Daily Cup of Joe has notes on Faulk, Hanifin, Slavin/Pesce and Skinner and also links to articles from the weekend at Canes and Coffee.
As far as being a Hurricanes fan, the All-Star break seemed to be a well-timed diversion and chance recharge and reset after a tough couple weeks.
First a couple quick polls…(Remember to click ‘vote’ after each question.)
Feel free to add more, but here are a couple ideas to bandy about in the coffee shop today.
1) What does it take for the Hurricanes to push above the massive fray trying to win the last wild card slot in the Eastern Conference? Is it a specific player or 2 who needs to step up? Is it Bill Peters finding a higher gear for his team? Does Francis need to shake things up and bolster the lineup with a trade? Or?
2) Which Hurricanes player will boost his play the most after the All-Star break?
3) What does Peters/the team need to do to solidify the defense?
