Panthers finally have a multi-billionaire owner

Looks like Vinnie's company is set for an IPO. Based on current valuation of $3 billion and his 65-70% stake, he's set to become a multi-billionaire, at least on paper.

Now let's just hope that the (bad) luck of the Panthers doesn't rub off on him and that his high frequency trading doesn't blow up on him some way.

If only I was as rich as vinnie.. he used 1/12 of his money when he bought the florida panthers, thats like nothing for him. I wouldn't be surprised if Vinnie told Tallon that he doesn't care how much money is used, he just wants a winning product on ice (well thats basically what he said)

This season cannot end any sooner. I want to see some offseason moves!

Exactly, you can't guarantee these guys WANT to be here, no matter how much money. Money isn't everything to those that want to win NOW or want to play near their home, i.e. the reason Parise and Suter weren't going anywhere but Minnesota.

I'm sure they'll get the best free agents they can, but don't knock Tallon's ability to swing a trade. People say there's no one great on the trade market but you never know. Tallon has typically pulled big trades out of nowhere.

Vanek is 100% going to Minnesota, barring anything unforeseen.

How much to trade for OV and all of his contract?

I wonder if the Big V is keeping tabs on Callahan away from NY…he's still on my fantasy team lol

Why do I see Cally going to Columbus though?

Who should be our starting goalie next year?

IPO delayed because of SEC probe:
"Virtu Financial, a high-frequency trading company, has delayed a planned US initial public offering after its bankers advised it to wait until heightened scrutiny over the business of lightning fast trading subsides."

Means nothing?

He won't mind what we spend because he can eventually get that money back. It just depends when we can turn this around and become a good team.

He's not Roman Abramovich and this is not soccer, don't really expect an influx of big name players coming, maybe 1or 2 at most.

hmmm with all the recent scrutiny on high frequency trading and the IPO being delayed, kind of wish I didn't say that last sentence now......

Having a mindframe of "Ill only be happy if we sign x, y and z" will surely only lead to disappointment.
