Quick Hits and Tidbits - August 16th


The Jimmy V Golf Tournament starts at 9AM on Sunday.  The Hurricanes are usually prevalent during the event and this year will be no different.  Erik Cole, Joe Corvo, Rod Brind'Amour, and Chad LaRose will attend.  They will be joined by announcer John Forslund, ex-Cane Bates Battaglia, and a number of other celebrities.   

The Hockey News has been updating their selections daily for how the conference races might turn out.  They have the Canes finishing sixth.

In case you missed it, Paul Branecky posted an interesting article about how several ex-Hurricanes have made good coaches.  Great job on research done here. 

Albany will be interesting to follow this year with several recent draft picks getting a start on their professional careers.  The Rats schedule was released this week. 

Ross McKeon from Yahoo! Sports published his "power rankings" on Wednesday.  McKeon has the Canes ranked 13th in the league, but fails to add anything knowledgeable in his note about the team.  Of course the obligatory comment about the Whalers is made along with a dig at the logo.  Good old Mr. McKeon is as predictable as ever.  This is the same guy who once wrote about how he thought the Southeast Division should be contracted.  Ted Leonsis was not amused

McKeon responded  to Leonsis by saying that his "suggestion" was made tongue in cheek, but still went on and on about why he thought contraction was a good idea.  Confused much?

Could McKeon be "Two Line Pass" in disguise?
