Yes, I know it's the Florida Panthers.....

But right now they have the second best record in the NHL. 

30 games, 20 wins, 6 losses and 4 overtime losses. 


Is this just a division thing with everyone feasting on Detroit? The magic of Joel Quenneville? The Barkov effect? A great goaltending tandem? 

Ekblad doing Ekblad things? 


Thoughts? Or just a covid mirage?

I am cheering for the Panthers as my second team, I really like what's going on for them this season.


I think they're for real, they have the pieces in place to be a great team but they underachieved the past couple of years, I think this is a breakthrough season and the fact that they are beating and going toe-to-toe with the likes of Tampa and Carolina and they are beating the teams they should beat at the bottom half of their division.


Maybe they are just overperforming and I will be wrong when next season they are 10th in the East again but I think they are legit.

I always thought their team was underperforming. I am hoping they are finally putting it together. I don’t see them being second best in a normal season, but maybe top 5 in the east potentially. I have always liked Florida.

They've got the pieces to be better than they've been the last few seasons, but even so, they've done better than I thought they would. Particularly having lost Hoffman and Dadonov. Playing Detroit has probably helped, but it's not as if they don't have talented players and a coach with a long history of success. 


It'll be interesting to see whether they can sustain it, or carry it over to next season.

Quenneville has them playing to their potential. He's one heck of a coach! No idea why Chicago let the guy go.

I think it’s Quenneville combined with the  Covid shortened season. He has them believing that anything can happen in a season like this and it’s working well so far.
