As the Carolina Hurricanes wasted power play after power play against the Florida Panthers Dec. 23, they tested the patience of hard-core and casual fans alike. First the RBC Center crowd resorted to the usual cry: "Shoooottt!" Then the more frustrated resorted to the more basic shout: "Booooo!" At least the fans who have attended the organization's tutorial class, "Hurricanes U," knew what the team was trying to do on those man-advantages. Power-play strategy is one of the fundamentals the organization explains during Hurricanes U, which is part Hockey 101 and part behind-the-scenes look at Carolina's game-day experience at the RBC Center. For $100, the Hurricanes explain everything from the basics (What's icing?), to the intermediate (What's the best strategy for killing a penalty?), to the advanced (How does the salary cap and salary arbitration work?) -- it's all there in a three-part class for fans who want to know more about the game.continued
