It’s The Offseason Y’all

We have officially entered offseason mode here at Canes Country. We’ve been bringing you in-depth content since the Hurricanes returned to play but with their season being officially over our content will be scaling back some.

There will still be Storm Advisories multiple times each week and our goal will be to have something for you each day when possible. We have plenty of things lined up such as draft and free agency previews plus we hope to have exit Zoom interviews from the team soon. That being said we always want to know what you want to read, so if there is something you think would make a good article drop it in the comments and we will see if we can do something with it!
