‘The talent was always there’ in Florida, says Luongo

The Panthers haven’t fared very well over the last two seasons — finishing 29th and 30th overall in consecutive years — but, according to veteran goalie Roberto Luongo, that lack of success wasn’t due to a lack of talent. “I like it — the talent was always there,” Luongo said in previewing the upcoming campaign, per Vancouver’s Team 1040 radio. “We had a lot of...

Nothing goes together better than a Florida Panthers hockey game and munching a Cuban sandwich, sipping a cafecito or Mojito before topping off a victory with a big, fat Cuban cigar. Huh?

Florida Panthers looking to move?

It’s no secret that the Florida Panthers have struggled, both on the ice and at the box office, in recent years. They’ve ranked near the bottom of the league in attendance, and have made the playoffs only once in the past decade.
