News And Notes
Quote:
- Tomas Vokoun, like I said before, did practice today. He could go tomorrow if he feels OK. The reason he drove was because he still has fluid in his ear drum and they didn't want him to be subjected to the pressurization of the cabin.

Plus, he said he had never been to South Carolina before and wanted to see what the big deal was.

-- David Booth is out tomorrow with a sore set of ribs courtesy of Mike Green yesterday.

-- Cory Stillman practiced today and is probable for tomorrow. He told me yesterday his bruised foot was feeling much, much better, thanks. Someone from Rochester could be coming up (Shawn Matthias?) just in case. But I haven't heard anything on that front yet.
Sun-Sentinel: Bouwmeester paying no heed to trade talk
Miami Herald: Craig Anderson rebounds for the Florida Panthers
George Richards' Blog, Your Source For Reliable, Early Panthers Info!


Red Hot Cat Of The Night Bryan McCabe, with 5 points in his last 3 games.


Primary Target
Ilya Kovalchuk, star of the Thrashers and quickly vaulting his way up the NHL points leader list. Everyone knows what Kovalchuk can do, along with 29 other GMs. Tomorrow, he may be just a spectator watching the pieces fall. Will he remain a Thrasher? Time will tell.

After watching the highlights, again, of the Caps win, Im curious to know why Dvo slapped his stick on the ice the way he did when Ovie scored at the end of the game. Was he pissed that it affected his +/- rating? lol

Anyways, Cats come out the way they did after the Semin goal the other night, and win the game in regulation. At least, thats what I hope for.

I loved it, he didn't any more goals from the Caps and it shows this team's pride. Perhaps it was because Ovy scored and the team wanted to keep him of the sheet, especially with his comments from the prior meeting?

Hope they beat the snot out of em tonight.

Because he was pissed the opposition scored. Doesn't matter if it's an 11-1 shellacking. You don't want to be out there when they score. And, it was a pretty bad goal.

Well, in my opinion.

Agreed, I thought exactly the same thing. And that's good. I don't think PDB is going to let them come out slow against another bottom-dweller. I thus fearlessly predict a super hard charging Panthers team and a good victory.

I'm going on a limb and saying JBo is still a Panther come Thursday.

I know that's a risk, but I've taken those before and been right...not that I will...but I'll be the first to come right out and go on that limb.

If we keep him should we add to our roster? Maybe go after Gaborik? I think if healthy (a big if) he would thrive in our system. I would give up Matthias for him.

For some reason (can't explain it), I just don't have a good feeling about this game. ATL has been playing really well since they pinned the "C" on Kovalchuk and we've been playing a bit loose defensively (not to mention very Jeckyll and Hyde overall)

I can't believe I may never see him live in a Panthers jersey again. Been watching him play for what, 6 years... that's gonna be a tough one if I go to the Pens game next Thursday and Jay isn't there.

For this reason, I see a convincing win tonight. Two of your better players coming back to a team that is hopeful to catch a high here and run with their suddenly hot PP. Plus it also could be (although I think he'll stay) Bouw's last game for FLA, so you know he will be going good tonight. That WSH game was HUGE, I don't see it negatively going to anyones head at all.

Panthers - 7
Atlanta - 1

Me too.


These games always make me nervous. I hope the Cats pull out two points.

Oh no.. CI is using the Thrashers feed. JP Dellacamera is one of the worst announcers. His... stilted... delivery... annoys the ****... out of me. He has the same exact cadence to the end of every single sentence.
