There's a chance this fiasco of a labor war in the NHL could finally come to an end, possibly this week, and the season finally begin later this month.
It's been a long wait -- way too long. That also brings up the question: what have you missed the most about not seeing the Canes play this season?
Seeing Jordan Staal in a Canes' sweater? Alex Semin? The game atmospheres, the tail-gates? What have you, the fan, missed most as 2012 comes to an end?
The floor is open.
