Dang. I guess it isn't a problem I forgot to DVR this game. Yikes.

They might as well be 600 points behind Carolina because they have absolutely no chance of catching them.

Hope they sell Joke-anin on Tuesday; I'd gladly take a low round draft pick for that loser.

Uh oh. Voukoun's comments really worry me. After being so vocal, it sounds like he's getting beaten down. "That's just the way it is."? Maybe, Tomas, but that's not the way it SHOULD be. Please, keep being vocal! Call out these guys, they need that at least!

The Rangers had a game on Saturday also, preparation, coaching. we've lost seven out of the last 10 games. FIRE MARTIN!!! If it wasn't for pure luck and Anderson standing on his head, we would have lost against Philly as well...Watch Martin give away players for nothing once again at the deadline. Remember, he was on - board with the Luongo deal. FIRE MARTIN!!!!!!

You come off of a basically "lucky" game in which you should be ready to go...give your all. And you fail miserably.

Sure the team is beat up, but where is management to rescue the rest of the squad with a trade? NONE. Perhaps a visit to the scrap pile..or that all too familiar call to Rochester. How many players must be left up there? They probably have the hot dog vendors in uniform by now.

Jacques Martin is a complete and utter failure. Why we should worry about losing Jokinen by tomorrow is mind boggling! How dare you Jacques say that "anyone is available"..THE ONLY ONE available should be YOU!

YOU SUCK.

Fire this man TODAY!

As a Carolina fan and resident of Raleigh, I'm sure that the Canes would be more than happy to find a way to get Jokinen on this team. He is one heck of a talent who unfortunately is playing on an underachieving team. Too bad cause I enjoy watching the Panthers play but they seem to be going in the wrong direction under this current management.

Any of you remember how the beezer was playing at the end of his tour with Florida? Some of these goals Vokoun has let in lately totally remind me of that. Beezer was an awesome goalie, he could stop a puck you had a hard time seeing on the replay. Near the end of his stay with FL, he was letting in easy goals that others would have stopped, a lot of top glove side would just go right in. I think many of the team have just given up and are just getting their check. Now, if you were the owner of a company and all the employees were just sitting around, would you go yell at all 20+ employees, or yell at your coach, er I mean manager?

The team has given up. Don't just toss your season ticket renewals or email spam from the panthers sales groups, call them up, let them know too bad. just throwing away the stuff and ignoring them does not let them really know why. they will just assume you moved.

I had good hopes at the start of the season, too bad Bill Murray had other plans, dang groundhog day/year.

I get home early this morning after a trip, watch the TiVo recorded Flyers' game from Saturday night and almost throw-up at the end of it. Even the most delusional Panther fan would have to admit the Panthers were out played for almost sixty minutes by an injury depleted Flyers' team. Two observations- the Panthers are one of the luckiest bad teams I have ever seen. Secondly, if I was a Panther fan, I would want Anderson in net as much as possible. I truly believe he better than Vokoun. I guess their luck ran out against the Rangers, a team I needed them to beatů

But then I also realized, that the scoreboard is the only thing that counts. So congrats to the Panthers for beating my Flyers Sat. night. also, as bad as they are, it's also pretty telling that even the Panthers couldn't go winless in 10 straight games. Gawd my flyers stink this year.

This was the worst game all year...no effort at all..slow passes and lackadaisical attitude. The whole game was played in our end. No way we could win. To hear the same excuses over and over again is just crazy. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

If I'm not mistaken, the Panthers lost 14 in a row in November of 2006! Also, even with losing 10 in a row, they still have a better record, more points and have played 3 less games then the the pathedic Panthers...LOL

Too bad it's not 2006 lol. I hate it when the Panthers play us because i know there's a good chance we will lost to them. Lost track of how many times they've beaten us this year.

We went out and spent how much money on stars like Danielle Briere and we are still just a few points ahead of the Panthers??? something's not right at the Wachovia center this year.

Man, this team has really quit. Almost every player has quit, including Vokoun. I know the defense sucks, but he lets some softies in.

Man, was that depressing last night. At least it let me let go of the playoff dream that I was foolishly holding on to.

Oh yeah,.. Worst team ever.

Cohen doesn't have the balls to make the change now. It's too late and their already done. At very worst, send a statement to the team that everyone is accountable by firing JM. Let Sexton be interim GM and Kitchen as head coach. Then go get a winning hard ass like Hartley and start getting these kids playing to their potential. Enough with this already.

u know what tho... its hard to win hockey games when HALF of your AHL team is sitting on the bench. I'm sorry but jesus christ... stumpel, weiss, dvorak??? now allen is hurt. zednik i think we can all understand. whos supposed to step up if olli is in a slump? brine? glass?????? GLOBKE???? u gotta be kidding me. not to mention that olesz gets hurt everytime he blocks a shot. horton and booth cant be the only 2 behind olli that can score. too many injuries, denis potvin said it last night... jacques looks down at his bench and doesnt recognize half of the roster.
