No. 12: Florida Panthers
Season record: 10-8-1
This group most recently beat the Rangers, so that’s definitely worth something. But Jaromir Jagr has less than 10 points, so everything is obviously terrible in Sunrise.
All jokes aside, Florida is hanging low early in the season but can certainly be better. Youngster Jonathan Marchessult has gotten his first season with the Panthers off to a flying start, posting a team-best 15 points. Vincent Trocheck (13) and Aleksander Barkov (11) have also been good supporters.
Roberto Luongo is doing what he usually has since leaving Vancouver: succeed. He’s posting a .923/2.24 slashline in front of a defense that seems to be trying to find itself right now.
