from Glenn Odebralski of FloridaPanthers.com, In his season wrap-up press conference, Panthers GM Dale Tallon was asked a question regarding Florida becoming a desirable location for free agents.
“I think we sent a message to everyone in the hockey world that this is the place to be,” said Tallon back on May 1. “Why wouldn’t you want to be here?”
Though not a free agent himself and with one year left on his own contract, Tallon and the Panthers decided Wednesday that Florida was indeed a place he should be for the foreseeable future, inking a multi-year extension with the club.
“I’m excited,” said Tallon Wednesday. “This is a great opportunity to keep the franchise on the right path. We had a good season and I just want to build on this past season the next couple of years.”
