I'm posting these comments because I'm tired of people bashing my team. No matter what the Panthers do, we still have haters. New owners, hatin'. New GM,hatin' best prospect pool, hatin'. Signing free agents,hatin'. It just gets old. I mean I know opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one, but do the Panthers need to get bashed EVERY year? Heck, we can go and win the Cup and they'll get hated on. Just once id like to see my team get some respect. Whitney is an upgrade over Kuba,Jovo,Gilroy,Motou and strachan. He may never regain his form but I'm sure he'll be a good bottom pairing Dman.

Why should we mention him in a thread about Ryan Whitney? I for one, and many others, are not down on him at all. I think he'll have a career year.

Last year was the first he's done that well. He could do really well and rise to where it looks he'll be slotted on the first line, or just stay where he's been. Not sure many are down on him, we've just seen a lot of him.

Good luck with all your Panther bashing ladies! New owners. An awesome GM. Best prospects in the league and some quality mix of youth and vets!

Let's go Cats!!

Sweet! Unexpected, and still think Ian White would be better, but sweet! Good for Whitney!

Thinking I might have to make a new one of these for this Florida offseason

^ This.

Florida either gets into the playoffs with the mix of vets and youth OR they have a bunch of guys that teams will be willing to offer 4th and 5th round picks for at the deadline when teams go hunting for discount depth players...all while not having to rush prospects into the system.

I would not be shocked to see every single one of the guys they have signed in the last week or so traded at the deadline to contending teams.

They might even get really lucky and have one or two of them have decent seasons and get a 2nd rounder or two out of it all. Imagine if Thomas has a good year and if one of the contenders has a goalie injury or a guy fall apart?

Could be a really nice bargain for the Panthers. At least with these signings, the Panthers are bringing in some legit veteran players that can mesh with the younger guys.

Question for Panthers fans - is Jovo pretty much done? I see he's expected to miss 3-4 weeks but is he likely to come back and play a decent role for you guys or is he more likely to spend most of his remaining contract on the IR?

All these guys they signed are getting moved at the deadline. Florida is gonna stock pile some good prospects and hopefully develop a decent team. It's just a shame they only 46 fans show up for a game.

#1. You shouldn't just bash Canadians, many Americans and Europeans bash them as well.
#2. Dude, you're on HF Boards, Every team gets made fun of on here. I've only been here 3 months and even I can see that
#3. Though I disagree with people who bash the fans and say the team should be moved because they don't consistently show up to watch a bottom-feeder, opposing fans have every right to say the team sucks. The team's made the playoffs twice in the last 13 seasons, in a league where over 50% of the teams make the playoffs each year. You know when people will stop saying this teams sucks? When they start to win on a consistent basis. As a Panthers fan, you know there's a very promising future ahead. Until then, you have to put up with people who who are highly critical of this franchise.

He can be a 6-7 dman on a non-playoff team. Not sure that is what florida is going for, but oh well. He is what he is now.
