Seemingly they are depending on youngsters to improve the offense which is always a gamble. People point out the contribution of Gudbranson last season but remember most of that came late, his minutes were very limited the first half of the season. They have added toughness in Parros but remember he is replacing both Bradley and Barch so does that really make us a tougher team. Imo, as of this minute, the Panthers are a worse team than the one that came one goal from eliminating the eventual Eastern Conference Champions. What say you?
Let's reopen this thread when the roster is set.
