Carolina Hurricanes Blogs/news

Hi all,

I decided to stop lurking this forum and finally make myself an account. As I want to get more into hockey this year, I tried to find some quality blogs/news websites about the Canes but my researches (via Google or the HFboards search page) weren't really successful so I'm asking you guys what are you go-to Hurricanes blogs ?

I already know and read CanesCountry and this forum but that's all (and it's great ).

Go Carolina!

For hard news, Canes Country and the beat reporters' blogs are probably the only reliable resources. It's uncommon for relevant news to break through a different channel.

For commentary... Canes Country and Sunbelt Hockey Journal are the only two I could name offhand. Other blogs seem to be pretty impermanent.

The new design of SBNation drives me nuts...

This one can be good and is one of the rare ones with some insider info from time to time: http://hurricanesbeat.com/

If you haven't been to the Canes' beat writer's blog at the Raleigh News and Observer it is decent: http://blogs.newsobserver.com/canes/home/

Shutdown Line is the most advanced stats friendly Canes blog that I know of.

Another vote for the Sunbelt Hockey Journal. I like that it's an actual site dedicated to southern hockey.

And if I'm not mistaken, one of our board members writes for that journal.

All of the sites mentioned are great, but I find that I'm often away from my laptop whenever something noteworthy starts happening and so I tend to rely on Twitter more than anything throughout the day. Following the front office/official Twitter accounts is quite handy.

Here's the team list of all social media accounts.

I don't know about that, he rarely tweets any more and hasn't been funny in some time anyway.

This is completely true. Nevertheless, GM Trollerford is better than the one we have grown to loathe.

We've heard that from time to time. There's actually a survey article up at Canes Country today to get feedback on the new SB Nation design. You can either take the survey, or leave a comment on the article, or both, but please do weigh in if you can.

And thanks to all for the plugs.

[Link to survey article]
