My buddy and I came down from Canada last year to watch the Jets and Habs play over the weekend, I was pumped to go to I believe it was called the hometown series, when I got PNC I was unable to find anything out about it, look around, and pretty much gave up, I think going back to more traditional music instead of a DJ would help as well. I really think the fan experience will improve with winning, and I believe we should be very close to the playoffs this year, winning solves a lot of problems. I was down to Raleigh as well in 2001 and the tailgating was awesome, I am a little disappointed to see no tailgating, but again I believe this will be solved again with a team that can win on the ice. I am looking at booking another trip down most likely in early March 2018 and hopefully this team is will be either in a playoff position by then or in the hunt, I can understand the fans not wanting to come out, for some many years there was no hope, hope is I believe since Ron Francis took over is very close. Keep the faith Canes fans!!! Support the team... We are close to making it to the playoffs!!!
