Florida’s Poor Play Continues

from George Richards of the Miami Herald,

On Friday night, the Panthers closed their season-long, six-game homestand with a deflating 4-0 loss to the Blues at BB&T Center, a lackluster performance in which Florida’s coach called out 16 of his 19 players who hit the ice.

Hey, things could have been worse. The Panthers lost 7-0 in St. Louis on Oct. 5. The Panthers have been shut out in three of their first 13 games this season.

“We probably had three competitive guys,’’ Dineen said, mentioning Shawn Matthias, Jesse Winchester and Mike Weaver. “That’s not enough to drag the whole group along.

“If we can’t get everyone to compete harder than we did [Friday], we’ll just stumble along and get our wins here and there. ... They have to understand they’re playing in the best league in the world. It’s an absolute privilege to play in this league. There is no entitlement.’’
