I approve. Billy and Goldfart will be an upgrade as a duo during intermissions.

Dudes, he was a favorite in Ottawa by most...I'm going to miss him bigtime. We referred to him as uncle Denis because it's like watching the game with your old beer drinking uncle.

Congratulations!!

Alongside play-by-play announcer Steve “Goldie” Goldstein, Potvin will provide a seasoned, exciting voice to Panthers’ television broadcasters after spending the past four seasons as color analyst for the Ottawa Senators. Bill Lindsay will remain an integral part of FOX Sports Florida’s Panthers broadcast team as he transitions to a new role this season as color analyst for Panthers LIVE! pregames, intermissions and postgame shows, along with providing a second analyst on-ice perspective for select games.

Pierre has a challenger.

I liked the fact that he left, because I was tired of hearing him screw up names and forget things, then he was replaced by Billy.. so

WELCOME BACK DENIS!!!!!!!!

No offense to Billy. He's great, but he would be better in the Goldfarb, Minervini, Allison Williams role. The sideline reporter role.

OMG!!! THIS IS SO AWESOME!! I loved Potvin when he was here and missed him so much. He's not biased at all in his comments and he sees things on the ice as they really are! Best signing this year!!!!

Potvin is gonna love Gudbranson.

I hated Billy at first but many times last season Billy was the only thing to watch / hear at Panthers games as you'd never know what he'd come up with blabbering about. Good to see him kept in some extension

Our "new" color has a few more highlights in his career to talk about other than one playoff goal

Even tho he's just color guy he's gonna be talking a lot with our players. I think he'll have a few good advices for our young dmen

Very happy to hear this! Been a big fan of Potvin. Glad he is back to help keep hockey knowledgeable and smart. Billy was knowledgeable but not so smart lol. Was embarrassing to watch him speak and stutter. Glad to have Potvin back.

Billy wasn't that bad for a guy who basically started working commentary. But this change is probably for the best.

Welcome back!
