Reading Assignments

  • A 17 year old Canes fan from Durham beat cancer and is heading to the Winter Classic courtesy of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. If you read nothing else today, read this. [News and Observer]
  • The Hockey News gave out first semester grades for every team. The Hurricanes...well, they passed, at least. [The Hockey News]
  • Who made the TSN list of the 25 best players in NHL history? (Ron Francis didn’t, so make of this what you will.) [TSN]
  • The headline here is “NHL goaltending is as unpredictable as ever”, and of course it pours dirt on the Hurricanes’ season, so QED. [The Hockey News]
  • If you missed it, Eugene Melnyk opened his mouth a couple of days ago, and put Peter Karmanos’ occasional ill-advised ramblings to shame. [Sportsnet]
  • And the reaction was pretty much exactly what you’d expect it to be. [Ottawa Citizen]
