PANTHERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Smith on Panthers: 'They were a tough team to play against'

Reilly Smith feels strongly in the Florida Panthers, so much so that the former Boston Bruins forward admitted he didn't necessarily enjoy facing them last season."They were a tough team to play against. Everyone in the league thought that," the 24-year-old Smith told his new team's website. "They were pretty stingy, they put a lot of games into overtime and seemed they were winning...

Count one legendary coach in the corner of Jarryd Hayne.

Florida Panthers: Younger is Better

It's impossible to become a championship team overnight. Building a championship team is no easy feat, and with the limitations of a salary cap, creating the perfect roster seems daunting. It can take years of carefully planned trades and draft picks to create a winning team; making the rebuilding process stressful for players and fans alike. But when done correctly, rebuilding...

Roberto Luongo thinks 3-on-3 overtime will be exciting

The NHL is moving to 3-on-3 overtime hockey beginning in 2015-16 and the change has been met with mixed reactions. Some fans love the fact that the league is trying to reduce the emphasis on the shootout while others fear this is yet another gimmick. Those mixed feelings are also seen in various NHL players, but Roberto Luongo is one goaltender who thinks the change will be exciting...

Roberto Luongo Gets Photo Of Cory Schneider In Fan Mail To Sign (Photo)

It probably goes without saying, but if you’re looking for an autograph, you might want to make sure you get the right person. One signature-seeking hockey fan could use a refresher on that one after mistaking Cory Schneider for Roberto Luongo in what ultimately was a pretty humorous gaffe. The fan apparently sent Luongo two pictures to be signed. We’re guessing — and it looks...

Boucher: 2015 NHL Draft Road Trip

When it was announced that the 2015 NHL Draft was going to be held at the BB&T Center, I knew I wanted to be there. It’s a reasonable drive from Tampa and would offer the opportunity to experience a different kind of NHL event. The Florida Panthers had the honor of hosting this year’s draft at the BB&T Center and what a great experience it was. The Panthers and their...

Florida Panthers sign Jaromir Jagr to one-year contract extension

On Feb. 26, the New Jersey Devils traded legendary forward Jaromir Jagr to the Florida Panthers. While at the time it seemed like this trade didn’t make much sense for either team, it is safe to say that the Panthers have benefited greatly from adding Jagr to their lineup. Earlier in the season, I wrote an article about the NJ Devils trading Jaromir Jagr to the Florida Panthers...

Report: Odds are 'pretty good' Jagr stays with the Panthers

At age 43, Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down. In the final year of his current contract, it’s ridiculous that we’re all discussing where he’ll play next instead of planning his retirement ceremony. A few rumors have popped up regarding the next chapter in Jagr’s career, but the most recent report indicates he’ll be back in Florida in 2015-16. #FlaPanthers...

Florida Panthers’ Jimmy Hayes is in a rut

Florida Panthers forward Jimmy Hayes was on fire earlier this season, and for a large part of the season, he was the second-leading goal-scorer on the team. His drive, skating, speed and aggression developed from offseason improvements, and he was making a significant contribution to the team. However, since Feb. 17, he has just the one goal […] The post Florida Panthers’ Jimmy...

Ex-NHL player viciously attacks opponent before game

The scene prior to a recent professional hockey game in Sweden was shocking, to say the least. Former Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers enforcer Andre Deveaux went off the deep end prior to a playoff game when he attacked an opponent before a game.
