When Will The Florida Panthers Move Forward?

via George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

The Panthers had their smallest announced attendance in six seasons on Tuesday against Ottawa. 

An estimated 500 fans were in the building for warmups. Approximately 8,000 watched the game in an arena that holds close to 20,000.

Florida's official announced attendance of 10,074 was just a handful more than reported for a Halloween game in 2008 against Carolina.

"In Florida, if you have a good team, people will come,'' defenseman Mike Weaver said.

"We're not winning at home right now. Now is the time to move forward.''

Mayhap Florida has a good defenseman they are willing to trade to the red wings for a few prospects and such?

Not one that wouldn’t still be learning on-the-job (Gudbranson, Kulikov), no.  Campbell’s overpaid and a liability in his own end.  Gilroy, Weaver, and Gilbert aren’t going to add anything except more 2nd and 3rd pairing d-men to a team with too many of them already.
