Gomez Jokinen and Horton would be a sick line with Horton and Jokinen becoming this franchises first pair of 40 goal scorers. Making the playoffs might be difficult with this "ridiculous" roster of AHL players who shouldn't be there because we could definitely have NHL players and Stars Not Stars and AHL players.
Philadelphia turned their season around from worst to the playoffs yet we still make excuses about development.
Sure it takes time to build a perennial contender but that doesn't mean we can't make the playoffs in the meantime. There is a culture of loser and excuses within the Panthers organization. Read the articles after losses its the same story. Didn't play 60 minutes, didn't get enough pps, took too many penalties. Same story, different game. This is bigger than AHL guys.
philly doesn't help your case - they struggled to make the playoffs and the long term viability of their approach is yet to be validated. in addition, as some have pointed out, they were not in bad shape before their down season and had a lot more to wheel and deal with. the two situations could hardly have been more different. not that any of this realism will impact your hardened opinion..
