AC has proven Panthers LLC is nothing more than a slightly-profitable business (as long as expenses remain low), and more importantly, a tax shelter.
You are wrong, this is most expensive team Panthers ever have had and most likely defense (which sucks) is most expensive in NHL.

Then TB won the Cup and AC was going back & forth with Dudley & Keenan, & Keenan & Dudley & Martin & Keenan & Martin & Sutter & Keenan & Martin, etc....
Then the 04-05 work-stoppage.
Then Panthers returned in 05-06 with the same crappy team and our dissapointment slowly became
Apathy = don't care anymore.
Same Crap - best players want out, this is not a team commited to winning, etc, etc, etc...
Then 06-07 same crap.
Then 07-08 same crap.
And as they say in French "Voila" - Here We Are - 08-09.
Same Crap.
Apathy has turned to outrage.
All we can do is NOT buy the tix, NOT go to games, NOT wear the gear....

that follow Alan Cohen over the cliff and continue to spend money with Panthers LLC.
It's a futile endeavor.
They will never be relevant as long as AC is owner.
JB is gone within 8 weeks for more draft picks & prospects.....
BTW -
Last Playoff Series Win: 1996
Shawn Matthias was 8 years old.
And the NYJ took Keyshawn Johnson with the 1st overall pick in the NFL draft.
He's had a pro-bowl career, played on 3 or 4 different teams, won a super bowl, retired, and is now a commentator on espn.
All since the Panthers last playoff series win.
Does that give you some perspective?
-and-
Happy New Year!
Ok, so you're a fan from way back. We all are. Taking shots at fans that will spend their money on this team which is basically a "marginally talented" team is wrong. The problem lies with the management of the team, no argument there. It's proven. For all the years that this area called Cohen cheap, and he MAY have been, fact is the Panthers are only slightly under the current cap. So, what gives? It's not WHAT you spend, it's WHAT you SPEND it on. Goaltending is good, better than many. A few bright spots and that's it.

I don't know if you reside in Irvine, California, but for you to call out folks from across the country is pointless. Don't go to the games? Why? Because the team has incredibly foolish management? Sorry, that's not enough. Yes, I agree the team is weak, hasbeen, and might always be. This may be true, may not. Teams turn around in a season. Not going to a game at all, boycotting the organization, etc. Sends the team packing. As long as the team is willing to spend, which they do..there may always be hope. Drafting, and the correct mixture of veterans bring success.

Boycotting from Irvine, California means zero to any fan here. So go ahead and do it. We'll miss your posts.

How does that bring you joy? Nothing better to entertain yourself?
Factually most of what you say is true, but dont make fun of the posters, they are simply frustrated.
I only make fun of the rah-rah's (and you know who they are), who accuse everybody else of not being "true fans"..........

So the answer, once again, is that Alan Cohen is
extraordinarily incompetant......

And BTW, yes i live in Orange County,
SoCal now, and i hate the Ducks.........

it would be nice to break out the old panthers jersey from it's moving box and wear it proudly out here, wouldn't you agree?

Fire the assistants. their power play sucks, and the defense is nonexistent. Peter Depear said it the best when he claimed Montreal had more talent. Again Vokuon had his feelings hurt when he got pulled for giving up greasy goals. If he feels that the defense stinks get on their case and let them know that this kind of break down in their own zone is unacceptable. Now he says that it mental because he's getting the hook. Please grow up! If it not your problem relax, other wise work harder to improve your GAME! Mike Kitchen does suck as an assistant though, and the junior assistant couldn't coach a girl's team.

That was before he even put the Panther uniform thanks to Martin who'll never admit a major blounder and we are stuck with both GM and Goalie that have a different agenda and are both lousy creatures !

You post under many names from CA, but you always show you are not a true fan, you are a loser fan. Real Panthers fans aren't happy with the way this team is playing, but they don't act like a crybaby and whiner like you. You disgust all real Panthers fans.

No one should be surprised that the Panthers are losing games. The bottom line is that they don't have enough talent to compete on a regular basis. Moving on to a real NHL team, let's all hope Danny Briere and Simon Gagne get healthy and back in the lineup soon! Luckily, we have depth.

Happy New Year to everyone!

As a dolphins fan, it is obviously clear how much management has to do with success. Not just the personnel, but the attitude that comes from the top on down to these kids that find themselves on south beach with gobs of money, and no real pressure from playing in a real hockey market. Yormark and Martin are a joke. Yormark's claim to fame is that he got a sponsor to buy the elevator shaft, and Martin had no prior GM experience at any level until given the job by the panthers. He was a winning coach, except when it counted (playoffs). The last four games (3 of which we lost to two of the worst teams in the league), show the shortcomings of management. DeBoer has shown that he can be a good coach, but he also showed his naivetee by playing a dump and chase against teams that are faster and more skilled (Montreal), and by playing musical chairs with the goalies (when was the last time one of them finished a game???). This team is exactly what it has been since '97. Mediocre. The last time we made the playoffs was because we had a fast start, but after the all-star break we where abismal, and were swept by NJ in the first round. Since that all-star break we have been mediocre. It's time to blow up the team and start from scratch. And the only way to do that is for Alan Cohen to fire Yormark and Martin, and hire true hockey winners to come and take over. 2009 same as 08,07,06, etc. Happy Old Year

I am sober now, thank you very much.
And I am getting ready for the Panthers to bounce back tomorrow and beat Pittsburgh. But there will be no cyber love around here, my woman won't allow it.
Hey did anyone else watch the winter classic in Wrigley? That was a really neat game, wish I could've been there.
