Panthers injuries this season

338 games lost to injury. Over 48 games thats 7 players out every single game this season. And we're not talking 4th liners, we are talking mostly key players. Surprised we got as many as 36 points over 48 games.

Pretty insane if you ask me.

Yeah that is pretty sad :/ It gave some of their prospects a good amount of NHL-experience though that will serve them well next year... at least it brought something good to it :p

Huberdeau and Mackinnon will hopefully be fun to watch for Panther fans.

So similar to what the Oilers went through in 09/10 and 10/11. Lets see if that stops anyone from calling you "tankers".

Nope only the Oilers are tankers. Panthers went to playoffs last year and pushed the Stanley Cup contender to 7 games.

Am I missing something? Cause 338 games over a 48 game season is a bit more extreme than 281 over 82...

On Topic, damn that's insane. 577 over a full season. Not really surprising that you finished that far down in the standings. Too bad, since it would have been good for the fans to see a good season followed up with a couple of more successful ones!

Injuries like that usually correspond with dreadful seasons. I feel for the Panthers, the Isles had some crazy injuries for several years that coincided with their dreadful finishes. At least it got us Tavares.

MacKinnon should look pretty damn good in a Cats jersey. Huberdeau gets a legit running mate at center to anchor the future top line.

Upside: For your 48 games suffering, you get Nathan ****ing MacKinnon.

Injuries generally coincide with a bad season as well as tanking.

The Panthers are easily injured, but they'll soon be back, and in greater numbers.

Yeah with the current state of league parity it just goes to show how the bottom 10 or so teams are all fairly equal but where they end up at the end of the season usually comes down to injuries. Same thing with the mid-10 and top-10 groups in the league, or however you want to split it.

Panthers had a good, short season to do poorly in. A mere 48 games for a superstar.

I don't know how many man games the Predators lost to injuries, I do know a that at one point we were missing 8 of our 12 forwards.

Considering Fleishmann, Jovanowski, Skille, Theodore, Kuba, Clemmensen, Mueller, Goc, Weaver, and Kovalev were all in the mid-to-late 30s and/or significant injury crowd, it should have been assumed this team was going to be among the most injured heading into the year, (especially since it was a shortened season). Bergenheim and Upshall aren't good examples of durable players either. They were fortunate with health last year but it caught up to them this year.
Tallon had about 3 seasons to resolve the Weiss situation, he may have played through the wrist under different circumstances or could have been persuaded to move for picks or players before as well.

This team's disastrous year has more to do with team construction rather than bad luck. Luck is always a factor but the red flags were all over the roster heading into the last 2 seasons.

I would prefer the disastrous season over the bad season for the sake of a pick though, as long as it doesn't impact the budget they'll get to work with moving forward.

Many of the same players are coming back next year. FLA should expect significant MGL compared to the rest of the league next year as well with the players Tallon has under contract.

Thank God, we at least get some kind of consolation prize. Nathan MacKinnon is gonna look so good in a Panthers jersey, for sure gonna buy one

Can you remind me of all of the Oilers moves to improve their team, beyond throwing some 18 YO kids into the deep end of the pool with a cinder blocked tied to their feet?

I'm not a huge Tallon fan, but he did make a ton of moves last year to improve the on-ice product, which got them into the P/O's and forced a game 7 against the EC Cup contender. It wasn't his fault that (just from the top of my head) they lost their #1 center, two scoring line wingers, their starting goalie, and two top 4 d-men for significant stretches of the season.

Better example would by the Flyers when they ended up getting the JVR pick. A good team from the year before that was absolutely decimated by injuries.

Which source are you using for 338 from?

Trying to find a reliable source myself - but I'm seeing that total man games lost (skater+goalie) is the following (includes day to day reports, and may actually include suspensions too):
Detroit, 395
Ottawa, 382
Philadelphia, 371
Florida, 361
NY Islanders, 339

So Florida wasn't even the worst of the bunch. Ottawa's numbers might not even count Cowen since he technically wasn't even on the NHL roster until he came back. So that'd be about another 40 games to add on.

Whats crazy is that its the same story every single season. For people that dont know, the Panthers arena in Sunrise, Florida was built on old Native American land, and we think the injuries are a curse from that I dont understand how we are so unlucky year after year in regards to injuries. Ive questioned whether the medical staff needs to be replaced, or maybe the strength and conditional staff. You could maybe question the quality of ice at their arena, but these injuries occur home and away. We talk about the Panthers prospects having to produce in order for them to succeed, but whats just as important is this team needs to turn that injury bug around, and get a bit more luck there.

Flyers have this listed on their site

TOTAL MAN GAMES LOST DUE TO INJURY & ILLNESS: 254 (as of Apr. 26)
PLAYERS INJURED:
Pronger 47
Meszaros 36
Shelley 35
Grossmann 17
Hartnell 16
Rinaldo 15
Briere 14
Coburn 14
Talbot 12
Leighton 10
Gervais 7
Read 6
McGinn 6
Sesitito 6
Huskins 5
Simmonds 3
Couturier 2
Timonen 2
L. Schenn 1

That's missing a game so a lot of those players have another game lost

From our writer, and I fairly certain your list is wrong. Because Florida had by far the most man games lost to injury this season. TB announcers even said that in the last game..

And the year before that, and so on, and so on. You get the point IIRC, Bergenheim was playing with a broken foot in the Devils series, and Fleischmann either had a broken hand or finger, just to name a couple.
