PANTHERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rowe, Panthers still hopeful for turnaround this season

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) The last few days have been filled with awkward moments for Florida Panthers interim coach Tom Rowe.

When the Dallas Stars signed veteran forward Jiri Hudler to a one-year, $2 million contract extension this off-season, there was hope for the 32-year-old who had just come off a season where he was traded by the Calgary Flames to the Florida Panthers at the National Hockey League Trade Deadline.  Over the course of the 2015-16 season, Hudler scored a total of 46 points in 72 games...

Jaromir Jagr had an incredible excuse for missing his 25-year Stanley Cup reunion

Just when you forget how incredible Jaromir Jagr's career longevity is, there tends to come a reminder that puts things in proper perspective. We all got one of those reminders over the weekend.That's right, some Pittsburgh Penguins alumni got together to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their 1992 Stanley Cup championship, and a 44-year-old Jagr couldn't attend because he had an...

Firing Gallant a Bad Precedent

Well, after a week that felt like an eternity, the Florida Panthers are off and running under new Head Coach Tom Rowe. By now, you are no doubt familiar with the rather unceremonious departure of Gerard Gallant, along with Assistant Coach Mike Kelly. The rationale and motivations for the move have been infinitely sliced and diced since, and no matter how anyone feels about it, life...

Panthers Looking to Take Big Step Forward

Will coaching change get the team to the playoffs? It's a story so weird, even non-fans of hockey are aware that it happened. The Florida Panthers literally dumped coach Gerard Gallant on the side of the road after a 3-2 loss in Carolina to the Hurricanes. The news broke when Gallant and assistant coach Mike Kelly were spotted waiting for a taxi outside of PNC Arena after the game...

Blackhawks fans engage in makeout session behind Joel Quenneville (vid)

A couple of Chicago Blackhawks fans seated behind their favorite NHL team’s bench couldn’t keep their eyes focused on the on-ice action and instead engaged in a pretty hot-and-heavy makeout session. And Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, separated by a mere foot or two along with some plexiglass, was none the wiser. The very-public-display-of-very-intense-affection occurred...

Roberto Luongo was a good sport after getting roasted in shootout

Roberto Luongo is a funny personality in the NHL. He always knows how to keep everything light-hearted and frame it all as a game. After getting taken down in a shootout Tuesday during a 2-1 loss to the Penguins, he was able to bring a little self-deprecating humor to Twitter. Artemi Panarin turns him absolutely inside out. John Buccigross, the Sportscenter anchor and noted hockey...

Making sense of Florida Panthers firing Gerard Gallant, which NHL coach could be next

The Florida Panthers stunned the hockey world on Sunday amid reports of head coach Gerard Gallant being fired. Coming off a surprise 47-win, 103-point season and a Jack Adams nomination in 2015-16, Gallant’s job appeared safe. But despite the relative absurdity of firing a coach coming off a great season (and currently one game over .500 this season), there is a method behind...

Florida Panthers fire head coach Gerard Gallant

From being a Jack Adams award finalist to fired in less than a year, Gerard Gallant may have had one of the worst swings in NHL coaching history. He just took a moribund franchise to the playoffs for the first time in a decade plus and he has now been shown the door by the Florida Panthers. What exactly did he do to deserve such a firing? To put it simply, Gallant was in the wrong...

The Florida Panthers are using Uber to try to get more fans to actually come to games

Attendance can be the bane of a professional sports teams existence in a sun belt market. When you have sun and good weather, it is tough to find an excuse to head to a game. It becomes amplified times ten when you’re a fledgling hockey team in a warm weather market like the Florida Panthers. Sometimes for the Panthers, trying to get fans to come out to their games has been an...
