Carolina A Team On The Rise

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer,

There are still four games left, but the season ended Friday night.

There was disappointment, but there was nothing abrupt about it. The players have seen this coming for months. The numbers finally caught up with reality, that’s all.

Most of this group will be together next year, from the coaches on down. Tim Gleason and Tuomo Ruutu could have left, but they’ll be back. Really, only Bryan Allen’s situation is uncertain at this point, and it’s easy to see him staying.

The future is ahead of this team. Even on the night this season came to an end, next season remained on everyone’s mind.
