The 2013-2014 Season Coming to an End- What's next for the Canes?

E-mail Print PDF

Here we are, only 7 games away from the end of yet another season where the Hurricanes are not going to the Stanley Cup playoffs. For all the season's previous where there has been bitter discontent with that status, this year of all the years it's very evident. Go into the message boards and you'll see all kinds of discussion on the team, it's leadership, and the biggest question: Why should I continue to spend money either in season tickets or coming to the games period. The coaching staff is under fire. The team captain is rumored to be on the trade block as is half the team.

So what are the answers? Where does this team go from here? What will this fan base accept or not accept and will the dollars people use for their entertainment really go elsewhere? Join the conversation inside the threads, give us your thoughts. A long summer lies ahead (again) what does that mean for all of us, the average fan? They say the worst thing you can find in a fan base in any sport is apathy. Are we as a fan base now apathetic?

Final Regular Home Season Game - It's Staal Good

E-mail Print PDF

The abbreviated 2013 Season is closing in on us; what, just a month ago looked like a trip to the playoffs has quickly turned into hope we get Seth Jones conversations. The Canes will play their final home season game tomorrow against the still injured Marc Staal's New York Rangers- and in an interesting move, the Canes have called up the youngest Staal, Jared to play in this game, sending Riley Nash & Tim Wallace to Charlotte to help the Checkers who will be in Oklahoma City to kick off the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs.

We should/could see an all Staal line tomorrow so in honor of that, a family photo.

The Lockout is OVER

E-mail Print PDF


It's been a long time coming, and the day is finally here. The 113 day long lockout is over. 625 Regular season games, the Winter Classic and the NHL All Star game all lost in the process. A shortened season will commence pending ratification of the deal, and a revised schedule should go out in the coming day.

For your reading pleasure:

Puck Daddy - NHL Lockout Over

TSN. CA - Great Day for Hockey

NHL. com - NHL/NHLPA Agree to Framework of CBA

There are tons of blogs and articles on specifics of the deal, and "what next" as far as the games go, and scheduling. We'll be posting as it all comes in. Join us in the LGC Hurricanes Discussion Thread for more, and follow us on Twitter @lgc_com.

How happy are you that the lockout is over? Join the conversation!

Lockout Woes

E-mail Print PDF

Locked out

We're now into the preseason and regular season games thru October 24th. This page will not update with what you'd normally see: Game previews, reviews, etc., until we see a new CBA in place. However, you can join the quite lively conversation on all things CBA/Lockout here in the CBA Negotiations thread with your fellow LGCers. We're also discussing what's happening in Charlotte with the Checkers, so join us and discuss.

Having experienced the 2004-05 lockout like so many of our board members, that we are experiencing this AGAIN, 7 years later, I have no words for what that makes me feel. I do, but honestly they're not fit to print on a message board.

Check in for updates or conversation, and follow us on Twitter.

Stay strong Caniacs!

The Long Hot Eventful Summer & What's to Come?

E-mail Print PDF

These are literally the dog days of the NHL hockey fan's summer.

It's now August;  all the excitement of Free Agent Frenzy is now over, the Draft is in the rear view mirror and now is the time fans wait patiently for training camps to open. This summer there is a layer of uncertainty. The NHL Collective Bargaining agreement is about to expire and now the league and the players are in the midst of negotiations for a new one.

Join the conversation here on the 2012 CBA Thread. There is much to discuss, and much to catch up on if you're not following it too closely, but several good reads on what is happening with the league's proposal and the counter from the NHLPA, are musts on your reading lists:

From Sportsnet.ca: Cloaked in Compromise

USA Today's Kevin Allen

From Justin Bourne @ The Score: Backhand Shelf Blog


If you're on Twitter- some real good people to follow:

Aaron Ward the former Hurricane & SC Champ has become prolific on all things CBA is @aaronwardnhl

Michael Grange is Toronto based and typically covers the Leafs, he's @michaelgrange

James Mirtle @mirtle and Adam Proteau @proteautype are also excellent follows.


Stay tuned all- things have just started up with the CBA talks; here's hoping to a season that starts on time. Would be a shame for Coach Kirk to have a shortened training camp and for fans not to be able to see this new look Canes team on time.
