Found November 10, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Tim Thomas‘ return to the Florida Panthers net meant either Scott Clemmensen or Jacob Markstrom was going to be headed to the minor leagues. This time around, youth doesn’t prevail. The Panthers sent Markstrom back to AHL San Antonio and for the 23-year-old Swede it may be a blessing in disguise.

Panthers’ Tim Thomas returns from IR

Florida Panthers goaltender Tim Thomas was activated from injured reserve Saturday and played against the Ottawa Senators the same afternoon, as tweeted by John Shannon of Rogers Sportsnet. He was out with a leg injury and played in his first game since October 22. Thomas allowed two goals within the game’s first three minutes. The team fell behind early and he wasn’t able to...

Panthers GM Tallon opts for a new voice in Peter Horachek

This was not the way Peter Horachek wanted to realize a long-term goal to become a head coach in the NHL, but he'll take it. Horachek, 53, became the Panthers' 12th coach Friday morning when General Manager Dale Tallon fired Kevin Dineen in an attempt to stem the hemorrhaging of a disastrous 3-9-4 start that includes a current seven-game losing streak. He's the third...

Young Talents Failure to Develop Sooner Doomed Dineen

In the “what-have-you-done-for-me-lately” world of sports it should be no surprise that the Florida Panthers dismissed head coach Kevin Dineen along with two of his assistants Friday. After improbably leading a roster built mostly through free agency and the trade acquisitions of expensive veterans to a Southeast Division championship in 2012 it looked like Florida had found...

Panthers’ Scott Gomez misses third game in a row with groin

It was thought that the Florida Panthers were not playing Scott Gomez because of his poor play as of late. But as it turns out he has missed the last three games due to a groin injury and is considered to be day to day. All this according to the Miami Heralds George Richards. The 33 year old Gomez, in 15 games thus far has just four points. Most came early on in the season, as his...

Florida Panthers Fire Coach Kevin Dineen

The Florida Panthers are a bottom-feeding team.  They have only three wins in their 16 games to date.  They are not a particularly good team.  Tomas Fleischmann leads the team with 11 points.  He is the only player on the team with more than 8 points (a point every second games).  Brian Campbell is their top defenceman - but his defensive skills can be lacking.  Their best...

GARTH'S CORNER: Panthers Loan Markstrom To San Antonio

So, what now? The Florida Panthers are a hurtin' unit right now. The NHL vultures are circling overhead the rink in south Florida as the team has fallen into the depths of mediocrity and can't get up. The team fired its head coach Kevin Dineen late this week. Also fired were assistant coaches Craig Ramsay and Gord Murphy. Rookie head coach Peter Horachek will make...

Panthers Goaltending Saga Continues—Markstrom sent down

This past Summer, I kept looking at the Panthers lineup and wondered what they were going to do with their goaltending. After they let Jose Theodore go, I expected something to happen, whether it was trading for a goaltender, or finding another goalie in Europe to add to the mix. Even after Dale Tallon signed Tim Thomas, it still felt like the Panthers were looking for a more permanent...

The weekly NHL Index: 11-11-13

Biggest Story of the week Kevin Dineen led the Florida Panthers to the playoffs two seasons ago.  This week he was fired along with his assistant coaches Craig Ramsay and Gord Murphy.  Replacing Dineen is Peter Horachek, who coached the Panthers’ AHL affiliate.  John  Madden and Brian Skrudland will be the new assistants.  This wasn’t a shocking change by any means. ...

NHL losers ponder trades, firings

Losing has consequences. As the losses piled on the NHL also-rans, change became inevitable.Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon fired his coaching staff, despite his earlier votes of confidence for head coach Kevin Dineen. It seems the franchise’s new owners didn’t enjoy watching that team lose game after game after game in soul-crushing fashion.The staggering Edmonton...

Senators outlast Panthers 3-2 for third straight win

Tim Thomas arrived in Ottawa as an almost mythical figure – The Goalie the Senators Couldn’t Solve. By the end of his team’s 3-2 loss at the Canadian Tire Centre, he probably wished he’d spent the afternoon at the hotel watching Duck Dynasty. Thomas probably played well enough to win, but Florida’s punchless power play (0-for-5) and haphazard defensive play was too much...

Adam French: Florida and Phoenix Make Perfect Traders after Dominoes

The Florida Panthers have found themselves in the news…well did, until the Oilers took the fun and punted it in their face before a sweet dance. While the Oilers made international headlines dealing Ladislav Smid, often considered an underrated second pairing defensive defender in a cap dump to the Calgary Flames. The best part of this deal is that while the Oilers wanted to...

Rangers finally jump over .500 mark with 4-3 win over Panthers

Let’s stipulate Sunday’s 4-3 victory over the Panthers at the Garden will never see the light of day in a Rangers Classic Marathon on MSG Network, but at the same time, let’s recognize there is no such thing as a bad two points in the NHL. “We’ll take every win we can get,” Dan Girardi said after the Blueshirts bounded over .500 at 9-8 with their sixth victory in their...

Rolling Rangers Take Out Panthers 4-3

The Panthers fought hard throughout this game but they couldn’t distinguish the flame under the surging Rangers. The Blueshirts defeat the Florida Panthers and hand them their 9th straight game. First period, both teams played an evenly fast paced game. The Blueshirts scored first when JT Miller netted a beauty of a goal, assisted by […]

Travis Yost: G17: Panthers @ Senators

After a rough start to the season, the Ottawa Senators have a chance to break the .500 mark in the standings with a victory this afternoon over the Florida Panthers. There may not be a better time to draw this particular Floridian club. Head coach Kevin Dineen was fired earlier in the week, and GM Dale Tallon recently threatened that moves are on the horizon for his woefully performing team....
