"There will be changes though,'' Tallon said outside the arena. "I don't make rash decisions. None of us are happy. I have to fix this and I will. We're better than this.''... The Panthers have been let down by a number of their highest paid players this year with Brian Campbell and Tomas Kopecky ($10.1 million between them) yet to score a goal.

Which Goalie Has the Most Career Wins in Panthers History?

The Panthers might not be the best time in hockey but they’ve had their fair share of fantastic players come through the organization since joining the NHL in 1993 They’ve had decent goalies, too, including current netminder and former Bruin, Tim Thomas. The Tank — who is currently on the IR — helped the B’s hoist the Stanley Cup in 2011 and was one of the most-beloved...

Tim Thomas Ranks Surprisingly High in Jersey Sales During October, Comes in Fifth Among All Players

Tim Thomas hasn’t exactly made a dent on the ice during his short tenure with the Panthers, but he’s doing wonders for their jersey sales. The 39-year-old goaltender has battled injuries throughout his first year back in the NHL, playing in only six games for the Florida club this season.

Tim Thomas' homecoming to Boston spoiled by his absence in net

There were at least four television cameras all pointing at Tim Thomas in net during the Panthers' optional morning skate Thursday at T.D. Garden. That was about all the zealous Boston media throng would see of Thomas, as Panthers coach Kevin Dineen spoiled the highly anticipated homecoming for the enigmatic goalie's first return to Beantown where he won two Vezina trophies...

Matt Henderson: G16 Oilers @ Panthers: Oiler Brass Spotted In New York

In the midst of a death spiral that has seen them lose 5 games in a row the Oilers attempt to pull out against an equally struggling Florida Panthers team. Both clubs have only 3 wins on the season so far and both are giving up too many goals and struggling for offense of their own. After the embarrassing home stand that the Oil are coming off of there is little doubt that they are...

Randy Moller goal calls are back!!!

Back in the olden days when I was a younger man and a faithful reader of Awful Announcing, one of my favorite series of posts at AA 1.0 were the goal calls of Florida Panthers radio announcer Randy Moller.  A former NHL player, Moller had the most unique goal calls in the league, shouting random pop culture references after every Panthers goal.  Here's the original compilation...

Dan Spiegel: We Get Bullied, Too

The Florida Panthers get bullied by backup goaltenders. They get bullied by players who have yet to score a goal during the season, or their careers. They get bullied in shootouts, since FOREVER. They get bullied by opposing players that are normally average but Hall of Famers when lacing it up against Florida. Now this might sound like hyperbole to some, but these things have...

After compliance buyout, Tom Gilbert making a new home with Panthers

Tom Gilbert figured he had found a permanent home when traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the Minnesota Wild. He was, after all, a Minnesota native. Yet things didn’t work out as planned with the Wild. Gilbert was bought out, leaving him in the NHL wilderness until the Florida Panthers came calling. “It was different, I had to be pretty patient this summer not knowing where...

Report: Tim Thomas Not Expected to Play Thursday Against Bruins in Potential Return to Boston

It was expected to be a week of reunions for former Bruins this week, but a balky groin is likely to keep one of the 2011 Stanley Cup heroes from hitting the TD Garden ice as a visitor.

He’s...

15. Florida Panthers at Boston Bruins. No Tim Thomas, No Problem - Right?

Man, that Bruins have been pretty ******* bad lately. Losers of 4 out of their last 5 hockey games, Boston welcomes Florida into the TD Garden with open arms. Florida sucks sitting at 14th in the Eastern Conference with a measly 10 points which means Boston is going to play down to their level and get their doors blown off or they're going to be up 1-0 with 2 minutes left, blow...

Ty Anderson: Timmy's back...

It’s not often that you have a November meeting with the Florida Panthers circled on your calendar. And by not often, I mean you’ve never ever had an urge to circle a meeting with the Panthers on your calendar. Not even during the heyday of rats and cool jerseys featuring palm trees and hockey sticks. After all, those games didn’t necessarily come with the return...

Bruins-Panthers Live: B’s Once Again Try to Right Ship, Continue Homestand by Hosting Florida

8 a.m.: The Bruins aren’t necessarily in an unfamiliar position, but that doesn’t make it feel any better. The B’s are in a pretty nasty funk right now, which is something they’ve been wont to do in past seasons, and they’ll look to snap out of that on Thursday night. Boston has lost four of its last five, and the Bruins will attempt to get back on the right track when...
