Florida Panthers top 10 prospects

Following a similar blueprint to the one that yielded a Stanley Cup in Chicago, general manager Dale Tallon has quickly restocked a Panthers farm system that was fairly barren upon his arrival to South Florida in 2010. While drafting in the top five of the NHL Draft in four of the past five years has certainly helped bolster the quality of their talent pool, Tallon's ability to find...

Florida Panthers set for years to come with young centers

The Florida Panthers are in an envious position when it comes to their depth chart: They have too many centers. The Panthers pride themselves on being strong up the middle, and since Panthers GM Dale Tallon took over, building a strong core of pivots has been a top priority.

It sounds like Carlyle got resigned...
