Monday’s Daily Cup of Joe entitled, “What now?” takes on a similar theme, has another viewpoint on where to go from here and already has a discussion in progress, so please also stop there if you can stomach more Hurricanes hockey today.
As I post this, the Carolina Hurricanes are being bag skated at PNC Arena (courtesy of Twitter feed from Cory Lavalette from the North State Journal). Following Bill Peters’ salty post-game press conference after Sunday’s deflating loss, there is no other official news out of 1400 Edwards Mill Road yet. The group on the ice is still the same set as Sunday’s game. Francis has not said anything publicly, and no players have yet been recalled from Charlotte. Peters’ comments after practice might offer an indication of the lineup changes that he said would happen for Tuesday’s game.

But let’s make sure we continue to stay on the right side of being respectful to each other and also to team personnel who are also people.
1) If you could make only one move right now seeking a spark for the 2017-18 season, what would it be?
2) More broadly, if you were Ron Francis, Bill Peters or Tom Dundon for that matter, what would you do right now considering both short-term and long-term?
