have you ever gone to see the Hurricanes away from home?

The Forum is really nice, and actually laid out quite similar to the PNC Arena. A group of three or four 12 year old kids started pointing at me and booing loudly which was pretty funny. That was the only flak I got from any of the fans.
As a Whalers fan I've been to Madison Square Garden, the old Boston Garden, the Meadowlands arena, the old Spectrum, Nassau Coliseum, and of course the Hartford Coliseum. I was never impressed with any of those old buildings. I used to go to school at Hofstra which is right across the street from Nassau Coliseum. It was a dump nearly twenty years ago. I can't even imagine how much of a dump it must be now. The old Boston Garden was even worse.
Did you ever go to games at the New Haven Colliseum? That was the mother of all dumps.
