The Carolina Hurricanes future is bright, but there are still a few areas of concern
Ok, this is the first part of a two-part series where I look at the good and the bad for the franchise. I was going to do the good parts first but decided to face the warts of the Carolina Hurricanes like eating your vegetables before dessert. Even the biggest homer for the Carolina Hurricanes won’t deny the team has some serious issues. One only has to look at the team’s record, both recent and overall, to see the promise of this young team along with their pitfalls.
But this list isn’t about short term problems for the Hurricanes. These are long term problems that could seriously hamper the franchise’s efforts to rise above mediocrity. Never bad enough to earn a top three draft pick (Spoiler Alert: This will come back up later) and never good enough to make the playoffs. Feel free to let us know how you would solve these problems as well either through comments here or by tweeting us @CardiacCane. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work. These problems won’t figure themselves you know.
