Another good signing by Tallon. Panthers D is better not just because of this signing but mainly from cutting Jovo loose. Some nice work bringing in Jokinen to add scoring Thornton for toughness,  Bolland for depth at center after Barkov and Bjugstad. Even Montoya who will be a thousand times better than Ellis as a back-up. Nice job Tallon!

4 million a year sounds like a lot for mitchell considering his age and injury history
he is no longer as effective as he used to be.

Luongo-is-my-hero - He is a huge upgrade over Jovo and since I don’t pay the players I am good with it.
