Kukla's Korner Hockey

The dream has been realized. The Hurricanes finally won its first Stanley Cup in franchise history. So now what? Let's hope the Hurricanes can really build off this momentum. And the opportunities to build the market for hockey in this state reach well beyond the Research Triangle. Judging from the comments I have received in the last two months, folks around here -- and not just hockey fans -- have taken note of the Canes. I love it when people call or e-mail me, or stop me on the sidewalk around town, at the grocery store and even while I am out running, to talk about the Hurricanes. I still get jazzed when I see vehicles around here with Hurricanes flags and stickers on them.... Maybe the tide has finally turned. Maybe hockey will take hold in Mayberry. We'll see when the new season opens in the fall. How many of these fans will be there on opening day? The memories of this amazing season will have faded for some.more
