With Vokoun in the net and with some UFA signings are the Panthers bound for the postseaon.? The Panthers did miss the playoffs by 6 points and they did not have a #1 goalie. (sorry for the title miss spell I am in a hurry, it's playoffs.)
I'm not going to say "yes" until we officially have enough points to reach a playoff spot, but now with Vokoun and if Martin follows up on his word of acquiring/trading for a few more offensive threats, I can't see how it would be possible not to make the playoffs. Then, again stranger things have happened to a stacked team around the NHL before almost every season.
I really do feel we can be a playoff team, easily. But as Martin said, the next 10 days are extremely important for the team. I hope that in 2 weeks time we'll have a really good idea of how the team is going to look for the upcoming season.
