from Harvey Fialkov of the SunSentinel,
In an exclusive interview with the Sun Sentinel Panthers GM Dale Tallon stressed that while he will be searching for offensive talent, he’s not interested in a rent-a-player or burdensome contracts for aging and underachieving players.
Here’s an excerpt of today’s interview.
“We’re not sellers. Worse-case scenario, we’re looking to get better. Our goal since we’ve been here is to get better every day. How do we do that? Unfortunately, we’re banged up at this time, missing three key guys on the backend, so we got to find a way to get through this until we get healthy. We got five games before the deadline so we’ll know better. We got a good core, a good team, so it’s a matter of adding pieces now. We’re moving forward from here, we’re not subtracting!”
Does the surprising drive for the division title change your philosophy?
“We’re ahead of schedule. We’re happy where we’re at. We believe we can move forward here, we’ll do our best to get better.”
Looking for offense or defense?
“We like to score; the easier we can score goals the better it is on your stomach.”
