Power Rankings
Since the Olympic break when they lost Aleksander Barkov (and Tomas Kopecky) to injury, they are only 6-14-1 after a recent 1-9-0 stretch that ended Sunday.
The kids gave the Panthers a nice spurt for a few games there but a 1-5-0 stretch with only six goals is a good reminder that they are still kids.
The highlight of their Western trip? Giving up 29 shots in the third period to San Jose. It's a highlight only because Roberto Luongo stopped 28 and they won.
There is little to play for for the Panthers at this point but they are seeing a lot of good things from the kids like Jimmy Hayes, Brandon Pirri and Vincent Trocheck.
Dear youth: Show us what you got. A few more vets are gone and you have a good goalie behind you. At this point we're playing for the future (sound familiar?) Signed, the Panthers.
The Olympics did the Panthers no favors with their only two players in Sochi getting hurt. They have very little going for them at the moment. What else is new?
A thorough beating of the Maple Leafs is tempered by losses in five of six, the last three by a combined score of 12-3. How active will Dale Tallon be?
Something amazing happened: The Panthers scored on the power play! Of course they haven't scored another since, meaning they're one for their past 53. How is that even possible?
You have to be impressed the Panthers have won three of four with a power play that hasn't scored in 42 tries. Since they last scored (Dec. 28), they have three shorties.
Not sure if people realize how well Tim Thomas has been playing. To have a 12-13-1 mark and a .917 save percentage while backstopping these Panthers is quite an achievement.
Preseason Power Rankings
Tim Thomas looked like his old self in his Florida debut (4-2 win). The Panthers looked like their old selves in a 7-0 beatdown by the Blues. Just not enough skill.
