The Hurricanes were shut out 3-0 by Thomas Greiss and the Islanders Friday night despite dominating the game.
The Canes out shot the Islanders 45 to 22 in the contest, took an additional 27 shots that were blocked and directed a whopping 20 more shots that went wide. That's 95 attempts without a goal. Not an easy feat in today's NHL. Carolina will be looking to rebound Sunday afternoon against the Devils. Feb 17 - 10:09 AM

Look for some lineup changes for the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday as coach Bill Peters ripped the team following another loss on Sunday.

Peters has not been happy with the play of his team and he exploded after Sunday's 3-1 loss to San Jose. "That wasn't a lot of fun, actually," Peters said. "Obviously this group has been together, this lineup's been together for a little while now. Maybe there's some complacency there. … We can't put that group out again after that. It's unacceptable. They let each other down, too, in the room. That's not right...Is it a character issue? I don't know if it's a character issue or what it is. Whether we're in the eighth spot or the ninth spot or the first, that effort today is unacceptable, period. The effort, the intensity that we played at was similar to probably something you'd see in a neutral site in September." Stay tuned.

Hurricanes coach Bill Peters feels his team should be buyers at the trade deadline.

Peters suggested as much while responding to a rumor about the possibility of Carolina trading away goaltender Cam Ward. "That’s a bad rumor. ... We want to add, not detract," Peters said. He added that the team's desire to add players isn't a rumor. "It’s right from the horse’s mouth. ... We have lots of picks." Carolina is only two points out of a playoff spot and the franchise has to be hungry for a postseason birth given that they last made it in 2009. With that in mind, it's not impossible that the Hurricanes really will be looking to acquire talent before the deadline.

Tom Dundon has officially bought the Carolina Hurricanes from Peter Karmanos Jr.

Karmanos will retain a minority stake in the Hurricanes while Dundon will own 61% of the team. Dundon's agreement to buy the Hurricanes was first announced in early December, but it took time before the process could be completed. As previously reported, the team will remain in Raleigh.

Despite the fact the Hurricanes rank 23rd in NHL scoring, they do have a balanced attack.

The Canes only score an average of 2.74 goals per game, but they feature seven forwards with at least 20 points so far this season. That ranks them just behind the Lightning, who have 10 scorers with at least 20 points and the Predators who have eight. Teuvo Teravainen, Jeff Skinner, Sebastian Aho, Justin Williams, Jordan Staal, Elias Lindholm and Derek Ryan are the seven Carolina skaters who have registered at least 20 points in 2017-18.

The Hurricanes have a tremendous record when they score first.

Most teams do, but in the case of Carolina, the record is very skewed. When the Canes bulge the twine first they have a 13-3-2 record. Now if they can just figure out a way to win on a semi-consistent basis when they are trailing in a game, they might actually be a contender.

Tom Dundon has signed an agreement to buy the Carolina Hurricanes from current owner Peter Karmanos Jr.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman confirmed the agreement and said that the transaction could be completed in the next few weeks. Additionally, the team isn't relocating as a result of this ownership change. Before Dundon can become the Hurricanes' owner, he needs to gain approval from the NHL board of governors. "I am thrilled to continue to build upon what Peter Karmanos started in Raleigh," Dundon said. "The Hurricanes are a team on the rise, and I believe we have an opportunity to take the franchise to the next level. I’m ready to get to work."

Talks with Chuck Greenberg to buy the Carolina Hurricanes have slowed down recently, but other potential buyers are emerging.

Dallas businessman Tom Dundon is among those that have interest in trying to get the Hurricanes. Meanwhile, Greenberg has been attempting to raise the funds necessary to move forward with his bid. "In late September, we had made a lot of progress getting the equity but we weren't all the way there," Greenberg said. "Pete told me he felt the value had gone up and he wanted to test the market by talking to other buyers. Given the amount of time throughout which we'd been having our discussions, I completely understood. After all, it's his team and his prerogative. Since that time, the last eight or nine weeks, he and his representatives have been talking to other buyers. I've been talking to other potential investors." Team president Don Waddell also specified that all potential buyers are committed to keeping the team in Raleigh.

Carolina's power play has gone 1-for-26 in the last 10 games.

That includes a run of 0-14 in the past five contests. "It's costing us in some situations where we need a bit of a jump, where we could use one from the PP but we're not getting it," said Skinner, who had the last marker on the man advantage against Anaheim on Oct. 29.

Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr.'s negotiations with a group led by Chuck Greenberg to buy the Carolina Hurricanes has reported become more complicated.

It's not clear how they've become more complicated, but it sounds like the negotiations might not be processing as quickly as Karmanos would like. That said, the same source that said the negotiations had gotten more complicated also specified that the groups have "not turned their backs on each other," so perhaps there will be an agreement eventually. Karmanos is reportedly seeking $450 million to $500 million for the team.

The Carolina Hurricanes had a crowd of just 7,892 people on Tuesday for their second home game of the campaign.

The Hurricanes have been last in attendance for the previous two campaigns with an average of just 11,776 last season. Hurricanes president Don Waddell offered a different perspective. "We’re not last in the league in attendance," Waddell said. "You guys can publish (attendance) reports, but I go by dollars. So we’re not last. Nobody is happy where we are, no doubt. We also have to continue to keep moving all the elements forward. If we can do that, I think attendance is going to pick up with that." They've reduced the number of complimentary or discounted tickets they've been providing in an effort to sell more season tickets, making it possible for attendance to go down even as the number of full-price tickets sold goes up. Waddell said that the Hurricanes' season ticket base has grown from 5,400 in July 2014 to roughly 7,000 now. Still, however you break it down the Hurricanes have a lot of room for improvement when it comes to their attendance.

The Carolina Hurricanes will have a team captain for the 2017-18 campaign.

Hurricanes coach Bill Peters will name the next captain at the end of training camp. Carolina went through the 2016-17 campaign without a captain, but they had four assistants in Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner and Victor Rask, and Justin Faulk. "It will be a group decision," Peters said in regards to who will get the 'C'. "I think it’s important to get everybody’s ideas. When you ask people, not only do I ask them but I also ask them why? Give me an example of why you picked that guy. Give me another one. Give me an example of how he showed leadership."

The Carolina Hurricanes have confirmed that an offer has been made to purchase the franchise.

Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. is evaluating the offer and weighing his options, one of which is to simply retain ownership of the team. As previously reported, it's believed that former Texas Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg is the one who made a bid to buy the Hurricanes and that offer is reportedly in the $500 million range. If the team is sold, it will remain in Raleigh.

Chuck Greenberg is reportedly closing in on a deal in the $500 million range to purchase the Carolina Hurricanes.

Greenberg is the founder of Greenberg Sports Group and the former CEO of the Texas Rangers. The Hurricanes would stay in Carolina with this purchase. While Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. has been reportedly looking to sell the team for years, it has been stated in the past that the Hurricanes wouldn't relocate.

The Carolina Hurricanes have hired Mike Bales to be their new goalie coach.

He'll get to work with newly acquired goaltender Scott Darling. Bales joins the Hurricanes after spending the last four years as the goalie coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins. "Mike has a proven history of success as a goaltending coach with the Penguins, winning back-to-back Stanley Cups," said 'Canes GM Ron Francis. "Based on our research, we are confident that he is someone our goalies and coaching staff will enjoy working with, and we're thrilled to have him in our organization."
