Caniacs! As we all know, we have a big outdoor game coming next year, one we've been wishing for for a very long time. The game falls under the Stadium Series banner, typically used for showcasing the host market and providing local fans an opportunity to see something unique.

However, the NHL has begun sending a neutral public address announcer and generic in-game entertainment personalities to these events instead of allowing the home team's crew to cover the event. This may make sense in a Winter Classic, which are usually geared to be evenly split crowds, but in a home local showcase event seems unnecessary.

Not only does it make OUR game not feel like home, but it also cuts the opportunity for Wade Minter to get to call goals or Abby Labar to get to enlighten and entertain the crowd between play.

So to the NHL, please consider allowing home teams in Stadium games to use their own entertainment and personalities, not just when ours comes to Raleigh, but from here forward.
