Storm Front: Hurricanes Unveil New Uniforms; Criticized For Being Too Simple
Published June 5, 2013
STORM WARNING: In Raleigh, Chip Alexander notes there are still "scheduling conflicts" between the Hurricanes and N.C. State Univ. over the use of PNC Arena, but both sides said that the differences "can be resolved." Hurricanes President & GM Jim Rutherford yesterday said, "I would hope the two sides could meet and have a better understanding of how it’s worked over the past 13 years." NCSU has "first priority on dates for its men’s basketball games and winter graduation ceremonies." But Rutherford and arena operator Gale Force Holdings "claimed the university put a hold on too many dates for the fall, waiting for the ACC conference schedule to be released while the Canes faced a June 1 deadline by the NHL for turning in their dates" for the '13-14 season." NCSU Chief Communications Officer Brad Bohlander said that the university had "released all but four dates through the end of the calendar year." It is "not known if the dates turned into the NHL by the Canes are among the four not released by N.C. State" (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 6/5).
