Found June 11, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
from Luke Fox of Sportsnet, In a completely unscientific study to rank the current NHL logos from worst to best, we polled readers, fellow staff writers, and a select group of NHL stars for their opinions.... 30. Carolina Hurricanes “Obviously ours is the best,” says Hurricanes 20-year-old forward Jeff Skinner, who is obviously biased and obviously too young to realize how lazily the ’Canes logo was designed. “Looks like someone just threw red and black paint against a wall,” says a Sportsnet co-worker who doesn’t know art but knows how to describe the sloppy mess on Skinner’s chest. And to think the NHL traded that glorious Hartford Whalers insignia (*sheds single tear*) for this Weather Channel glitch. read on

30 Teams in 30 Days–Carolina Hurricanes

No Cam Do: The Story of the 2013 Carolina Hurricanes Team Name: Carolina Hurricanes Record: 19-25-4, 3rd in Southeast, No Playoffs Player of the Season: Eric Staal 18-35–53 was the best player on the team. He’s definitely the proverbial straw that stirs the drink and Carolina got a real solid season from him. He’s not a first-round pick but will come off the board early. Breakout...

Storm Aftermath: Tim Brent

Tim Brent's two-year stint as a Carolina Hurricane went in a much different path than many expected. Signed as a free agent in the summer of 2011, it was thought that Brent would help the team's penalty kill and provide some much-needed help in the faceoff circle. He ended up doing neither, spending minimal time on the PK and having the worst faceoff percentage on the team...

Storm Aftermath: Justin Peters

As a person, it's really hard to dislike Carolina goaltender Justin Peters. Ever since he has been a part of the Hurricanes organization, Peters has worked hard at every level and has never complained about things like playing time or not getting enough opportunities in the NHL. There have been a few instances where Peters was passed over for the Canes back-up job when he had...

Storm Aftermath: Dan Ellis

The Hurricanes got kind of lucky with Dan Ellis falling into their laps at the beginning of the year. They were planning on entering the season with Justin Peters as their back-up, but the NHL lockout caused a few players to find work in other leagues and it led to Ellis signing a professional tryout contract with the Charlotte Checkers, Carolina's AHL affiliate. Ellis put up...

Carolina Hurricanes: Dealing With The Adjusted Salary Cap

Photo credit: Andy Mead/YCJ/Icon SMI By Dylan Howlett (@DylanHowlett) In September 2008, Jim Rutherford could see the vultures swirling overhead: salivating, expectant. The Carolina Hurricanes general manager had assembled a talented nucleus of young, incipient stars. The post-championship blueprint — devised to ween Carolina off the veteran-laden 2006 Cup-winning club and acclimate...

NC State and the Carolina Hurricanes battle over arena dates

The Carolina Hurricanes, which apparently are a professional hockey team, and the NC State Wolfpack both use PNC Arena. The Wolfpack use the arena for basketball, and also use its parking lot for football games. This arrangement has been managed for 14 years, so it's a bit odd that the two are now fighting about it. Somehow the Hurricanes, whose parent company manages the arena...
