What will I tell my kid when she asks me where the Whalers of my youth are? I always assumed I would just tell her they moved to Carolina.
Her father's Whalers remained in Hartford. The 'Canes are HER Whalers, not her father's.
Yes. Hartford kept the Whalers history, kind of like the Creve did when the Old Browns became the Ravens. The Hurricanes are owned by the guy who used to own the Whalers. They also had a very similar roster to the Whale. They even had the Whale's old coach. But they were not the Whalers.
Do they play Brass Bonanza?
I do not believe so. I have not been to a Canes game since they moved down here so I can't completely confirm or deny this claim. My goal is to make it to a Canes game this season.
