Nothing was more frustrating than watching a Panthers-Devils game back then knowing that if the Devils ever got the lead, the game was over because they'd clog up the neutral zone to prevent any offensive chances at all, Brodeur would be first to the puck if it entered the zone and would make the first pass back out of the zone, meanwhile the Devils wouldn't attack much themselves, and the rest of the game was going to be played at center ice. There was no excitement at all.
Agreed that the NHL should crack down on diving because it seems like the Panthers are the team that is penalized the most when other teams get PP's after diving.

Now let's get back on topic here. Another one of my favorite memories is when Dino Ciccarelli scored his 600th goal as a Florida Panther!!!
