The “Summer of Change” in Sunrise isn’t over yet: Last week, the Florida Panthers traded injured center Dave Bolland to the Arizona Coyotes.

Coyotes don’t expect Bolland to play ‘for the foreseeable future’

In order to land Lawson Crouse from the Florida Panthers, the Arizona Coyotes also had to take on Dave Bolland’s anchor of a contract that has three years and $16.5 million remaining. But the Coyotes aren’t expecting to have to fork over much of Bolland’s salary because they’re not even sure when, or if, he’ll be suiting up in Arizona. Following the trade, Coyotes GM John...

Video: Team USA’s Charlie McAvoy obliterates Team Canada’s Lawson Crouse

Exhibition games are supposed to be fun and slow paced. It doesn’t make for great TV most of the time as it just ends up being background noise for whatever else is going on. We saw recently in the KHL how serious some exhibition games can be, but when it comes to USA vs. Canada exhibitions games, all bets are off. When Team USA’s Charlie McAvoy (recently drafted by the Bruins...

Scoring the new Florida Panthers look

Those who have been paying a very close attention to the designs of NHL teams probably noticed plenty of makeovers to knock out the garish 90’s looks. The San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks, and the Dallas Stars are prime examples of teams that vastly improved their design over the past 15 or so years. The Florida Panthers, meanwhile, kept their looks relatively constant since...

The Florida Panthers have made what you might think is an odd free agency day signing. Goaltender James Reimer has joined the Cats on a five-year, $17 million deal. The Panthers have certainly not gotten complacent with their recent success, signing Keith Yandle and re-signing Aaron Ekblad to huge deals.

Jaromir Jagr delivers sandwich to paparazzo outside his home

I guess we can call this “killing them with kindness.” One consequence of being famous is that your privacy can be severely violated. And no matter how wrong that may be, it’s something that’s not going away anytime soon. For Jaromir Jagr, he reacted a bit better than most after seeing a persistent photographer waiting for hours outside his home in his native Czech Republic...

If you’re like me and grew up in the 1990s, chances are you are about as shocked as anyone to see Jaromir Jagr still playing NHL-level hockey. After all, he is the only player still left from your copy of the classic video game, ‘NHL ’94’. Jagr, the seemingly ageless wonder, proved he still belonged in the league with a crazy 2015-16 season for the Florida Panthers. The...
