No. 23: Florida Panthers

Previous: 19th

Record: 16-14-8

Since Gerard Gallant was fired from the Florida Panthers, the team has struggled to meet expectations and now sits in 6th place of the Atlantic Division. On a positive note, the Florida Panthers still boast an absolutely dynamic blue line from an offensive standpoint. With 22 goals from blueliners, the Panthers rank second in the league in goals from defensemen.
