Perhaps playing afternoon preseason hockey in the sports hotbed that is South Florida wasn't the best idea in the world to attract fans on a Monday afternoon. The Panthers proved that against the Predators.

Surely that's going to help with the franchise's reputation with supportive fans. Then again, not sure what they expected with a scheduled game like that. At least theirs doesn't come in the regular season like another South Florida sports team.

*Disclaimer: There are plenty of good Florida hockey fans, I know many myself, but that's still embarrassing.
