Canes Still Evolving

from the News & Observer,
The Carolina Hurricanes, the team that promises it's "Here to play, here to stay," has fulfilled the first part in the season's first quarter. The team widely expected to finish near the bottom of the Eastern Conference burst out of the lockout by winning 12 of its first 15 games, rising to the top of the Southeast Division and looking like it can make the playoffs by going .500 the rest of the season. So are they "here to stay?" Only Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos knows, but he has said that the Triangle is strong enough as an NHL market so long as it has a competitive team. Attendance at Canes homes games is up from 11,676 in the 2003-04 season to 14,688 this year.
