January 21st – Florida Panthers

After missing out on the Artemi Panarin sweepstakes, the Panthers acquired one of the best goalies in the league in Sergei Bobrovsky.

The goaltending situation in Florida was a question mark for the last season or two, with Roberto Luongo showing his age and James Reimer struggling as the starter.  The Panthers needed consistency in net and they found it this summer.

Then, there is the Q factor.  Coach Joel Quenneville will return to Chicago as the opposing coach for the first time since being let go by the Blackhawks last year.  In what will be an emotional return, the ‘Hawks will undoubtedly turn up the heat against their former coach.
