Earlier this season, we started a polling series called Hurricane Tracking. It’s a regular feature that simply tracks how you feel about certain aspects of the Carolina Hurricanes, and dovetails with our goal for Canes Country to be the one-stop shop for talk about the Canes’ performance. (There will be another entry in this series later this week, so stay tuned!)
Now, we’re expanding Hurricane Tracking by joining forces with a brand-new SB Nation polling project that will pull together the insights of the most plugged-in NHL fans.
If that describes you, then SIGN UP HERE to join us on our new project called SB Nation FanPulse. It’s not the same as Hurricane Tracking; it’s better.
If you sign up, you’ll be among a hand-selected group from the SB Nation NHL community which answers quick polls each week developed by SB Nation and Canes Country.
We want to build the definitive poll of *informed* NHL fans, and that includes you. Your votes will be anonymous—though if you join, you’re welcome to tell anyone you like.
But — there is one change!
With this new FanPulse initiative, you will need to be a registered FanPulse user to participate in the polls. Right now, the poll questions will focus mostly on larger, leaguewide or divisional questions, but in a few months the questions that you’ve come to expect in Hurricane Tracking - job approval ratings, trade feedback, and so forth - will migrate over to FanPulse. When that happens, you’ll need to be signed up to vote, so go ahead and do it now so that you’re ready when we make the shift later this season!
The results of each poll will be published by Canes Country and may end up on SBNation.com also, along with the results from other team sites.
Ready to sign up as a Canes Country FanPulse participant? CLICK HERE. And if you have any questions, drop them in the comments.
(And one big upgrade from moving to the FanPulse platform? Spiffy looking graphics like this, from Cat Scratch Reader.)
You can expect an article similar to the one linked above on a biweekly basis from Canes Country as we check the pulse of the fans on a variety of topics.
This week we are starting with early season predictions for the postseason — which two 2018-19 playoff teams are going to miss the post season this year and which two teams that were outside the playoff picture will make the 2019-20 post season? Have an opinion? We’d love to hear it!
