Florida reached at 23rd overall for center (Kurt!) Henrik Borgström. Borgström was slated to go mid rounds, as the second year draft eligible grew nine (9!?!) inches in his first draft season. Coupled with the pain associated with such a growth spurt, its no wonder Borgström had zero interviews at the combine last year and […]
Yes, playoffs haven’t started. No, the June Draft hasn’t happened, nor July’s free agency period but that won’t stop us from taking a gander at the possible depth chart in Sunrise come the 2016-2017 season. As it stands now, the Florida Panthers are making a strong push towards the playoffs and that will only enhance […]
Only three points separate the Bruins from the Panthers in the Atlantic Division standings. And if playoffs started today, the Cats would face-off against these Bs in the first round. That makes tonight’s game a little more hyped. Not only are they jockeying for playoff position, they may very well be jockeying for home ice […]
The March towards the playoffs starts with the changing of the calendar to a new month. Deadline day aptly fell on Leap Day, as trades seemed to come in four years apart. Tallon fetched a 6th rounder for Pirri but the real moves were closed Saturday. Jiri Hudler, Teddy Purcell, and Jakub Kindl will all […]
It wasn’t long ago the Pittsburgh Penguins were atop the NHL standings. Two Stanley Cup Final appearances in the last two years, one yielding a Stanley Cup. Their calling card wasn’t their goalie, their defense, coach, nor even iconic owner. It was their centers: Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Jordan Staal. The strength down the […]
The Florida Panthers were already mad hot in Vancouver. Can they keep the fire stoked versus the Flames, and continue their point streak to blistering 14 games?
It’s GAME DAY in PantherLand and that can only mean one thing: TSS Pre-Game Skate. Since we just faced-off against the Devs, it seemed only right to switch things up and throw a little audio, a little visual, and a few numbers your way. Wanna be ready for puck drop? Well then, proceed… Morning Skate […]
When the Panthers opened up their season with 7 goals against the Flyers, it was thought that this year would mark the end of the offensive woes. As we move into mid December, it’s clear that is not the case. Through 30 games this season, the Panthers have scored one goal or less 9 times, […]
The Panthers winning streak was inevitably going to end. The question now is, how do they respond? Playoff caliber teams are able to shrug off the loss and begin a new winning streak. Against an opponent ahead of them in the division standings, we will get a great indication of what this Panthers team is […]
Around the league Sidney Crosby remains the gold standard for centers. In any situation, at any time, Crosby is the best option for a coach. Power Play, short-handed, leading, trailing, tied. Rightfully so, Crosby has been given the bulk of those minutes and the best quality of that quantity.
The Florida Panthers open the 2015-2016 NHL season with one goal in mind: making the playoffs. General Manager Dale Tallon’s five year rebuild plan, “The Blueprint,” ended with ‘close but no cigar’ with the team finishing 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Now, beyond the era of blueprints, Tallon is expecting to make the playoffs […]
Former Rookie of the Year winner Jonathan Huberdeau was inked to a 2 year, $6.5 million bridge deal this morning.
Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon avoided the free agent market July 1st but filled his time consummating a pact with the newly named GM of the Boston Bruins, Don Sweeney. Tallon relinquished unsigned restricted free agent Jimmy Hayes. In return, Sweeney shipped Reilly Smith to Florida only two seasons after his predecessor Peter Chiarelli […]
