Found October 19, 2011 on Puck Daddy:
Our society is one of constant apology, whether it's between friends or between a consumer and a corporation or between a politician and their constituents. It's not so much we demand that someone sees the error of their ways — we just want to see squirmy regret, throw some dirt on the nastiness and "move on." Matt Bradley began the healing process before the Florida Panthers' 3-0 loss at the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night. In August, he called out former teammate Alex Semin as "one guy who has so much talent he could easily be the best player in the league and just, for whatever reason, just doesn't care" and that "when he doesn't show up, you almost get the sense that he wants to be back in Russia." In reacquainting himself with the DC media before the game, Bradley apologized (via Whyno): Q: Is that the kind of thing that once you said it, you wish you could take it back? Bradley: Yeah, 100 percent. As soon as I said it......

Florida Panthers: Return of the Roar in South Florida

Breaking Into the NHL… at 30

From Bob McKenzie at TSN: I saw a tweet from the Florida Panthers that Bracken Kearns will be making his NHL debut tonight and I cannot tell a lie. I said, who the heck is Bracken Kearns?

Panthers Power Past Lightning (Again)

TAMPA — On Saturday night it took overtime plus a shootout to decide which team would walk away with the first win in the rivalry series for 2011.

Panthers 7, Dolphins 6…

So if you told me yesterday afternoon that the Dolphins would only score 6 points against the Jets I wouldn’t be that shocked. But if you then said “and the Florida Panther’s will outscore them” I would recommend you have your head examined.  You know who else should probably have their head examined?  Steve Yzerman.  You really looked at your Depth Chart back in August...
