Florida Panthers top 10 prospects

Following a similar blueprint to the one that yielded a Stanley Cup in Chicago, general manager Dale Tallon has quickly restocked a Panthers farm system that was fairly barren upon his arrival to South Florida in 2010. While drafting in the top five of the NHL Draft in four of the past five years has certainly helped bolster the quality of their talent pool, Tallon's ability...

VIDEO: Roberto Luongo wears TMNT pajamas for Ice Bucket Challenge

Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo is already one of the NHL's biggest Twitter personalities, and he made quite a splash with his Instagram debut. Riding the wave of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Luongo did his part for the cause while donning attire more commonly associated with catching some Z's than getting soaked. Take a look at the three-time All-Star's dousing...

Eddie Lack Nominates Roberto Luongo For Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

Goalies, generally speaking, are weird dudes. So, it’s only fitting that a goalie would come up up with one of the more bizarrely hilarious editions of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge we’ve seen yet. Eddie Lack and Roberto Luongo were tight while the two were sharing the net in Vancouver. Luongo’s trade to the Florida Panthers last season broke up the duo, but it was not enough...

Shawn Thornton, Foundation Donate $50,000 To Jimmy Fund (Video)

Former Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton might not be suiting up with the Black and Gold this season, but Beantown is still near and dear to his heart. The veteran joined WEEI radio at the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon on Wednesday, and unsurprisingly, he found another way to endear himself to the city. Thornton and his foundation gave a wonderful parting gift to Boston...

Florida Panthers hope to be more than ‘paper tigers’

The Florida Panthers nearly stole the spotlight away from the Wings and Leafs during HBO's 24/7 series, and of the Atlantic Division's non-playoff teams I'd argue that the franchise may be a Phoenix Coyotes East off the ice (their financial situation is quite the mess), but on the ice, the Panthers have the greatest chance of serving as not only a playoff spoiler for...

Florida Panthers the most tortured franchise in hockey

One of the constants when discussing sports is trying to figure out which franchise has it the worst. “Well my team hasn’t won in 30 years! My team has been awful for 10 years! My team can’t draft!” So on and so forth. After all, there’s got to be something for the clods of the league to be at the top of besides the draft boards. In the NHL, there really are only a few...

John Madden thinks kids start playing football with helmets too young

Melissa Stark has been hosting a five-part series touting the Heads Up Football program, which has been given a five-year, $45 million grant by the NFL to help promote safety within the game by educating coaches, players and parents. The final...
