    I'm just gonna do this like would a game 82 post when Florida's eliminated and list all the Panthers playing their last games/ending their involvement with Florida today:

    Dale Tallon
    100% One of, if not both Dadonov and Hoffman
    Brian Boyle
    Erik Haula
    Mark Pysyk

    I did finally decide to change my NHL 20 name

    Like I said this team is going to be worse next year.

    5 playoff appearances in the last 24 years, 0 series wins, and let's be honest, they weren't gonna make it this year without Covid forcing the NHL to let 80% of the teams into the playoffs. Interestingly, all 5 losses were to New York/New Jersey teams. See you August 10th for the Laf lottery, really the last hope of this franchise.

    I would have started Judge just because the team plays better in front of him but I''m ok that Bob's getting the start, he was great game 1 and good enough yesterday. I can't imagine Matheson plays again.

    Florida may have gotten swept in an expanded playoffs they wouldn't have qualified for but on the bright side, Matheson's nickname Covi-19 is great. I will not watch tomorrow if he isn't scratched.

    Yeah, Laf is pretty much the only "plan", especially if Joyce cuts salary and goes younger. Man, it would be so huge. I won't allow myself to hope though.

    This team is most likely better at golf than at hockey, no matter how much time they spend doing either one of them.

    I'm just happy these clowns have proven me right.

    No one wanted to believe me, but here we are about to get swept in a 3 game series.

    I actually expected the Cats to win one game. I figured the Islanders aren't THAT good so we'd likely get a game out of them.

    Turns out we just suck that badly. When nobody cares even winning one game is insanely difficult.

    Anyway bring on the off season and let's start burning this thing to the ground.

    I was gonna add Sceviour because I thought he had two years left, but he only had one so meh. He's a good PK guy and a complete blackhole offensively 5on5. Need a younger, hungrier and faster player in that spot.

    Even if they would win it's not going to change shit. They'll send both Hoff and Dads packing due to salary cuts and the defense will still suck.

    This team is soooooo bad!!!

    NYI is a good team. But it's not like we are playing the Lightning on steroids, we should be able to be at least competitive.

    Islanders are sailing off into the playoffs and that bunch of losers that are the Panthers will let them go without even fighting.

    For the very first time in 27 years, I can say that I literally hate this team. Over the years, I'v been sad about them, I've been angry, disappointed. I did hate them for short periods of times, but never like I do right now.

    Actually...I realize that I don't even hate hem anymore. I just don't care. And just like in a human relationship, it's over when you don't care anymore. When there's hate, there's at least emotions.

    I'm really done with this team and I mean it.

    Can't believe I've been cheering for one the worst pro sport organizations for all those years.

    It’s hard to like any current player when they are directly contributing to what will likely be the Franchise moving. But this is what I do cheer for teams that build me up and crush me down.

    Reading rumors that Viola wants to sell the team after another fiasco season. Will this mean the team will move? Who would want to take over this shitfire here? It's not working

    They have an ironclad lease until at least 2023. So at the earliest you'll have to suffer them sucking for another 3 seasons. After that all bets are off and they can skip town.

    I actually think what would be ideal in the long run is if they leave to Quebec or something and Bettman looks to add a team back in South Florida by like 2030 or something and start fresh with a brand new arena in downtown fort lauderdale that will attract young people and yuppies.

    That is what a Florida hockey team needs. A fresh start right down to the physical building they play in. I would fire/relieve every single staff member associated with the organization.

    I wonder if Huberdeau requests a trade before his contract is up...he'll be 28 next year (where did the time go). I'm sure his buddy Trocheck is bragging about how amazing it is in Carolina.

    I would also add. Connorly and Strallman, and possibly Toninato.

    He will.

    At 28 years old, he's not going to waste one more year here.

    At least we should get a nice return for him.

    Another awful disappointing season comes to a close. Garbage. It would have been a huge let-down if I didn't already give up. Can't wait to see what 'big' moves we do this offseason. We'll be uncaged!

    In perfect panthers fashion - we'll probably win the next 2 to force a game 5 - only to not show up and get blown out.

    Also: Scratch Matheson. Free Tippett.:crossfing

    This series is like expecting a PS5 for Christmas and instead getting a pair of Panther’s socks. Carolina Panther’s socks.

    Just toss out a prayer here and go with this lineup:

    Huberdeau - Barkov - Tippett
    Dadonov - Wallmark - Hoffman
    Vatrano - Haula - Connolly
    Sceviour - Acciari - Hunt/Saarela

    Ekblad - Weegar
    Stillman - Pysyk
    Yandle - Brown

    Also, how nice would it be to have Lammikko for the bottom 6 and PK right now? Another great example of pushing players away...while we have guys like Toninato, Boyle, etc. taking up roster spots.
