November 22nd, 2020 The Florida Panthers are familiar with drafting in the top-15, which they've done in eight of the last ten years.

Vancouver Canucks

In today's, NHL rumors, there is talk about what the Vancouver Canucks are going to be looking at in terms of cost on an Elias Pettersson extension. How will the team make it work? In Florida, it appears a former NHL goaltender has agreed to a PTO with the Panthers. Which teams did NHL players vote most and least improved over the offseason? Finally, what does NHL free agency look like for next offseason? Are there going to be any big-name players available on the market? Pettersson's Entry-Level Deal Ending Thomas Drance and Rick Dhaliwal of The Athletic point out that the Vancouver Canucks have their work cut out for them when it comes to an extension for forward Elias Pettersson. He is entering the final year of his entry-level contract and he's going to be due a huge raise with the team's salary cap potentially skyrocketing as a result.

Panthers History

This has been a very interesting date in National Hockey League history. One of the truly unbreakable streaks in all of sports came to an end. The league saw its first-ever penalty shot, had a game postponed due to a November heatwave and got a new player atop the all-time goals list. The Streak of All Streaks Ends For the first time in over seven years, on Nov. 10, 1962, Glenn Hall’s hockey team took to the ice without him. The Hall of Fame goaltender had started and played every minute of 502 consecutive games, but three days earlier, he had to leave the Chicago Blackhawks’ game against the Boston Bruins due to a back injury. For the first time since the opening game of the 1955-56 season with the Detroit Red Wings, Hall was not in uniform. On this night, Dennis DeJordy started in his absence at the old Montreal Forum. He made 33 saves to lead the Blackhawks to a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens. DeJordy...

Florida Panthers

Now that Dale Tallon has moved on and been cleared of several allegations, the Florida Panthers can continue what they started when new general manager Bill Zito was named just over two months ago. While Zito did lock down the defense by re-signing Mackenzie Weegar and bringing in Radko Gudas, formerly of the Washington Capitals, and Markus Nutivaara from the Columbus Blue Jackets, those aren’t the only cards this former vice president of hockey operations has to play. The Panthers' well of talent runs deep. And now that the organization has begun shoring up the back half of the ice in support of goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, Florida has an opportunity to look ahead from an offensive perspective. One source of skillset this squad has to draw from is its minor league affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. As for which of those forwards that could see some ice time for Florida in the near future, let's take a look. Mason Marchment Having just signed a...

Panthers Goaltending

On July 1st, 2019, the Florida Panthers signed veteran goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to a $70 million, 7-year contract. A two-time Vezina Trophy winner, Bobrovsky was a prized free agent and an incredible addition to a team that was looking to fill the gap left by Panthers legend Roberto Luongo, who had announced his retirement just five days earlier. Luongo spent 11 seasons with the team in his storied career. While staff, players, and fans alike were disappointed to see him go, the addition of a talent like Bobrovsky softened the blow quite a bit. The sizable investment, carrying an annual cap hit of $10 million displayed a great level of trust and excitement in the veteran’s potential. The signing looked likely to make a competitor of a Panthers team that had not made the playoffs since the 2015-16 season or advanced past the first round of the playoffs since 1996.
