Franchise Player Poll: #13 Florida

1) You are voting for the franchise player who will receive a 4 year, 24 million dollar "franchise player" contract. Everyone else will be a UFA, including prospects so who you don't vote for will be on sale to the highest bidder. This WILL NOT count against the cap and the player can not be traded.

2) Player will play all 82 games for that 4 year span and goalies will start 65+ games a season. Basically the player will be immune to injury for 4 years.


Anaheim: JS Giguere (49%)
Atlanta: Ilya Kovalchuk (64%)
Boston: Joe Thornton (95%)
Buffalo: Thomas Vanek (40%)
Calgary: Jarome Iginla (92%)
Carolina: Eric Staal (81%)
Chicago: Tuomo Ruutu (92%)
Colorado: Peter Forsberg (48%)
Columbus: Rick Nash (89%)
Dallas: Marty Turco (57%)
Detroit: Nicklas Lidstrom (49%)
Edmonton: Ryan Smyth (72%)

I'd say that when your teams #2 is Huselius, and #3 is Weiss, your team is in a pretty bad shape offensively..

Luongo is the easy choice here..

Luongo. Lots of young talent in Florida, but Luongo is the best of the bunch. Florida may not have won 10 games last year without him.

Luongo.

J-Bo and Jokinen would have been worthy selections as well.

This should be the easiest choice yet. The only drawback with Luongo for the Panthers is that they may not be able to afford him and build a decent team around him. That isn't a problem with this system.

I didn't vote for Jokinen, but I would have picked him 2nd after Luongo. I personally think he's on the verge of breaking out, and will be Florida's key non-goaltender player over the next 4 or 5 years.
