Star Players Need To Step-Up For The Carolina Hurricanes

Fans that were pining for big on-ice changes for the Carolina Hurricanes are feeling underwhelmed thus far.

Staal Brothers Make Their Name Even Bigger, This Time Not in Hockey

The Staal name is a big name in hockey. Everyone knows the legendary Staal brothers. Eric, Marc, Jordan, and Jared- all exceptional players, and all from the same family.

Hurricanes Deal Ruutu, Acquire Loktionov

The Carolina Hurricanes were relatively quiet on trade deadline day. Instead of being in a position to be buyers, the Canes’ recent five game losing streak (before finally winning one in San Jose last night) put them squarely in the sellers category.
