How far does Florida go?


Recommended Posts

Damn after these moves florida has been making you can't help but think they've got a respectable chance of making the playoffs

Fleischmann - Bjugstad - Huberdeau
Boyes - Barkov - Upshall
Jokinen - Bolland - Kopecky
Thornton - Mackenzie - Bergenheim
Ekblad - Gudbranson
Kulikov - Campbell
Mitchell - Petrovic
Luongo
yeah they're offence could improve a bit, but their backend is solid, as well as the potential down the middle.
How far do you guys think they go? Obviously not Cup contenders but do they make the playoffs? 1st/2nd round exit?

Really depends on how their young guns play/improve...certainly bolstered their 3rd and 4th lines and defense and have Lou in net... They will be tough to deal with regardless as they are big up front and fast on the top 2 lines and very tough on 3/4 Good coaching and a system could have them push for sure

I think they need to make a couple upgrades at forward

Huberdeau - Bjugstad - _____

Fleischmann - Barkov - Boyes

Jokinen - Bolland - Kopecky

Bergenheim - Mackenzie - Thornton

Trade Upshall and get a guy like Vrbata for the 1st line? That's really not a bad forward group at all.

So, they are paying Bolland all that money just to be a third line center?

Well that's exactly what he is. The Panthers could shed significant salary up front next year if they wanted to (Upshall, Flesichmann, Kopeki) but they still have to sign Pirri, Gudbranson and Kulikov and next year they will need to re-up Huberdeau and Bjugstad. Yeah they might have the room but they are still craycray for shelling out that much for that many years for Bolland. He's a 3rd liner and the highest paid player on the team right now lol.
