I'll put in my take too.

- Booth - never recovered fully from the concussion Mike Richards gave him with the blindside head-hit.

- Samuelsson - played for the Panthers twice - the first time he left and excelled with Detroit. Second time he simply wasn't that great for the Panthers and I guess lost his mojo.

- Vokoun - always suffered from slow starts. Needs a team effort to make him look good, though he has his moments.

- Dadonov - are you kidding? What did he ever do? He never developed an offensive game, nothing to do with Panthers.

- McArdle - also never developed well enough to be an NHL regular

Not the case:

- Garisson
- Frolik
- Seidenberg
- Jovanovski
- Rob Niedermeyer (became an excellent defensive forward for the Ducks)

Others mentioned some other players that excelled after us. But don't forget Jason Woolley and Rhett Warrener, Jaro Spacek...I'm sure there's some others as well.
