Posted June 22

— Under the leadership of new head coach Bill Peters, the Carolina Hurricanes will begin the 2014-15 regular season with six of their first eight games on the road, according to the schedule released Sunday by the National Hockey League. 

The Hurricanes will begin the season with a home game against the New York Islanders on Oct. 10 at 7 .m. The next night, the Canes will visit New York to face the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum at 7 p.m.

    I'm excited. And I'm looking forward to the start of the season. I'd like to see what the new bosses can do with the non-hustlers and check-cashers.

    Can these, ahem, writers please stop the insipid use of "tilt" in lieu of game? Yes, I know you saw it somewhere and you want to be part of the flock so now you use it. It sounds ridiculous, so knock it off.

    It's about time to go back to Canada and give the people back their land.

    A lot of caniacs are looking forward to the season with our new coach, despite the few negative crybabies on this post.

    I think the Canes will be good this year under Peters. Trolls like 123skipjack are just that...trolls. Personally I hate college sports most of the time....glad to have a real PRO organization in the area

    I used to be a STHr, but I lost interest when this team could not find the back of the net. Plus, Muller just seemed a bit slow to me. HOWEVER, I will say that the new coach seems like he is the real thing. Time will tell if he can get E. Staal to hustle. Muller sure could not do that.

    It would have been nice to have more home games in the beginning of the season, considering the Canes have a new coach, which usually brings new excitement for the fans.
