from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, Back in the good, old days of the Florida Panthers — when they were only six years removed from going to the Stanley Cup Finals and trying to kiss up to fans after trading superstar Pavel Bure — the Panthers tried mightily to put butts in the seats.

Brandon Pirri gave the Florida Panthers an offense boost after coming over from Chicago last season, scoring seven goals and 14 points in 21 games.

More On The Panthers Attendance

Yesterday I wrote about the remarkably low attendance at the Florida Panthers home opener.  They had an attendance of 11,419 which is more than 2,500 fans fewer than any other team's home opener attendance.  Things got worse yesterday and they got worse in a remarkable way.  Only 7,311 fans came to last night's game against the Ottawa Senators.  That is a team record...
