    I feel like getting organized defensively is an easier hurdle than finding offense. So I think we can be right in it.

    The offense is pushing the pace and creating premium chances, but not capitalizing at an adequate rate for the chances they are creating. Barkov alone should have had 2 easy goals in the 1st period last night and choked both of them away. The pace is stressing out the defense, but the reality is that players (mostly defenseman) are making catastrophic errors that lead to these goals. also again, the triangle +1 needs to go. It's obvious that this team has no idea how to properly run it.

    Yea but again we know Barkov is insanely great with his hands so over the course of the season he will capitalize. I'd be infinitely more worried if they weren't creating chances. That said, we have scored 3+ in 6 out of 8 games.

    You could sell me that a system could click and just takes a little time but at some point, you need to stop bleeding. We lost 3 games in regulation where we scored 3 goals.

    yea, always knew spacey was a bit of an odd-ball, but never expected to find out he is a pedo. glad the panthers kept the spacey thing to a one year deal so they aren't having to deal with it as a distraction this season

    I’m honestly in shock. This is such a top heavy team with so many flaws. Yet they keep winning and climbing back into this thing. It’s completely fraudulent, but I’m enjoying it so much.

    Actually I would argue this is more real than not. By simply splitting Barkov and Huberdeau and having the talent to build 2 lines around then you arguable have two top lines. Guys like scevior for example are perfect bottom 6. Defense playing better and goaltending is being asked to overachieve.

    Barkov is a top 5 player

    Ehh. They still don’t get enough from the bottom 6 to be a true contender. I agree that splitting Huberdeau and Barkov balanced the lineup. Mamin is a really great middle 6 guy though. Much better than the other plugs they’ve been slotting in on the 3rd line. Get rid of Mackenzie and Haley and then we got a stew going.

    But yeah. Barkov playing like the best player in the world over the past month. When he’s on he absolutely dominates games.

    After seeing what VGK can do with everyone's bottom 6 I am going to give ours more credit they can sustain that role. Dadanov is on fire too

    We're the only team around us who has been above .500 over the last month+. no reason it should even be close if we play half as good as this going forward.

    pretty much certain that we are signing Borgstrom and putting him in the lineup. really odd move imo. They held pat at the deadline saying they didn't want to sacrifice the future for the present, but this move goes 100% against that. dressing Borgstrom this year burns a year off the ELC and makes him eligible for the expansion draft in 2 years.

    No 3rd jersey = bad

    Barkov as captain = good!
    He's the youngest in Panthers history and the first time a Panthers draft pick has been named captain on his first stint with the team. Off top of my head I assume the other is Jovo but he left first.

    Correct on the Jovo part. Almost as important, it Iikely means Mackenzie is not going to be an every day player anymore. Thank god.

    First pre-season game happening right now. We got an AHL level team out there against a bunch of top 6 players for the Preds. lucky to be 2-0.

    Yes. We just need to nail goaltending. This team alreasy has a solid offense so if they stop giving up 1000000 goals it's a playoff team. Changing defensive styles will help too.

    whole room started buzzing when he made that statement.

    impression I got today was that Luongo is in limbo. He'd be happy to come back, but if they need his cap space, he knows the deal.

    One is a 31 year old who is a top 5 goalie in the NHL and arguably the best goalie in the NHL when he is focused. The other is a 27 year old top 3 winger in the NHL who is elite offensively and good defensively. Acquiring both and finding a way to add a good defenseman makes the panthers a legitimate Stanley cup contender.

    Huberdeau-Barkov-Panarin could be the best line in the NHL if it jells and that’s not a homer take.

    Way more likely then I want to let myself believe. The panthers are the favorite to sign both.

    They are. But the experts feel the panthers are the likely destination. As a panthers fan, I’m conditioned to expect Lucy to pull the football, but I’m running at full speed on this one anyway.
