But this is the first time in awhile that the Panthers have had a good team..
Using the 2005-06 season as a benchmark :
Panthers finished 11th in the east and 4th in their conference.
Their top 3 scorers were :
Olli Jokinen at 89 pts
Joe Nieuwendyk at 56 points
Jozef Stumpel at 52 points
Best goaltender was Luongo who was traded right after the season for :Todd bertuzzi, Bryan Allen, and Alex Auld
The team had no real face of the franchise. Jokinen was good but he's not the type of player that you want as a franchise player
Are you trying to argue that the Panthers will now be a significant team in their area and will actually produce ratings that will matter to national networks?
These southern teams have had good teams and playoff runs before. It hasn't mattered. They're still irrelevant when it comes to national broadcasting.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
