"there are a lot of people that have no clue about tailgating at NC state or parking at PNC or NC state. that is when the clusters fucks happen. think all the PNC huge concerts or concerts in C-F."


what’s the percentage of people going who have never been to a hockey or football game? 5%?

it’s entirely different than a concert that draws people from all over the state with no experience going to the arena/stadium complex

^ Tru, but most of those people have a parking pass and know where they are going. no body know where they are going. I guess they will know when the PNC lots are filled and shut that gate down?

It should be better than a concert, but do you really believe in the NHL to have their shit together.

How is it any different than normal Canes games? you don't have assigned parking there either.

^^ the parking infrastructure has been the same for over 20 years and the NHL will have next to nothing to do with parking

unless I’ve missed an article about them bringing in their own parking attendants, there’s no reason to doubt that the same company who has been handling parking there will be there on Saturday

back to games then. great night last night. celebrate Cam and a hatty from Jarvis.

Also, we also take some dumb penalties, and can't seem to draw any.

^didn't realize 1 section out of 6 surrounding the arena was "a good chunk"

would love to know why we nixed the players wearing NC State gear for their walk-in

it was also a bit odd that it wasn’t the usual Canes Vision graphics team for replays/on screen graphics

the replays and audio were god-awful

Quote :
"He said the Hurricanes' other option was going to be a tribute to NC State football. Alas, the school that hosted the Stadium Series wasn't all that hospitable to the idea.

"Logistics wise, NC State wouldn't help us out with anything. It is what it is," Noesen said, adding that it might be for the best, given the North Carolina and Duke alumni who work for the Hurricanes organization.

"There was some controversy with some staff members," he said. "I'm not going to throw any names under the bus.""


Definitely seems weird. Plenty of great pub and exposure for State last night. But that’s odd for sure

definitely seems like State wanted to have their hands on operations way more than the Canes did

pretty odd

also found it funny that the season ticket cushions had been taken off of the bleachers and were being rented out for $10-15

I read that earlier today and it seems like it was 2 issues?

1. That NC State "didn't want to have anything to do with it" is kinda weird and feels out of character, but I dunno. Any chance it was an Adidas conflict? I dunno anything about Canes' licensing.

2. It sounds like there were people on Canes staff that were UNC/Duke that didn't want them dressed out in Wolfpack gear?

Dunno. The article didn't really unpack anything.

^^ the two aren’t mutually exclusive

they definitely didn’t sell that many

also funny that the PA announcer said, “ok Canes fans, turn your phone flashlights on to support the intermission act” and it looked like 6 people per section had their flashlights on for the Bro Country dude

^^ i mean we really don't know what they asked of State with regards to pregame attire. Maybe they asked for a bunch of football helmets or game jerseys or something. I could see the athletic department balking at a request like that. I don't see them saying no to like a bunch of hoodies or shirts or hats or whatever.

WRAL should've had it on TV.

Also, can Boston stop winning or at least get cold when playoffs come.

I don't know the full story in terms of parking, but I know from several people that the NHL really dropped the ball on just about every front in producing the game.

From someone who works video I know that the Canes kinda rolled up expecting to use our in-house equipment. But they couldn't since it was already being used for baseball/softball broadcasts. So they had to rent a bunch of production trucks at the last second. Seems to me like that would be a detail that would've come up at some point in a production meeting, but I'm not sure who's at fault there.

And apparently none or very few of the EMS/fire fighter volunteers were fed despite working all day.

Traffic control as we already know was a mess. I didn't attend, but it seems like they had no intent with how to disburse parking spots.

Results wise, the game was a huge success, but it seems like negative effort went into planning.

Columbus wouldn’t do it but I am curious what it would take to get Boone Jenner. Plays his ass off and can do a lot of things pretty well.

downward spiral. going to have to have worldly goalie play. and Freddie is not peaking (way too many soft goals).

PP is shit (last night was good).

Really need to hold on to the Division, but we are losing to bad teams.
