Ugh, I saw this the other day too, so frustrated with the Panthers organization! The latest I've heard is we're looking at ANOTHER defenseman! I mean, I'm confident some of our forwards, like Frolik and Horton, will be putting up more numbers this season, but we could still use another forward that will be producing! Who else is out there now? Oh yea and the defender we're supposedly looking at is Seidenberg, who I think is somewhat over-rated :/.
At this point, I'm just assuming Pete D. is seeing something in our younger players. I've read a couple articles of him saying that he likes who we've got. I also like the fact that last season was the first time Pete's never made it to the playoffs, he's hungry! As it was, we only missed out by a handful of points, which, in retrospect, is still pretty darn good. Didn't we have a winning record against the Pens? ha. Anyway, Frolik FTW! haha.
