Kukla's Korner Hockey

I don't want to say this with my first step back on the ice. I really don't. Do I have to write how the Panthers already have blown it? How they've created absolutely no buzz around this team's return? Couldn't I just write something poetic about hockey coming back after a year away ("It comes back on little cat paws ...") or an uplifting piece about the pulse around this franchise ("Everything's different with the big addition of ...")? But that's just it. There are no marquee additions on this roster. There is so little different. After a fantasy-style draft for the league, the Panthers' identity remains Roberto Luongo. This isn't to say there aren't other capable players. It's to say they made no splash to make South Florida notice them again.
