What is the level of concern with Spencer Knight’s recent play? They obviously sent him down to get some playing time, but is Johansson a viable number 2 if Spencer needs more development time?
Any concern at all on your end with playing .500 hockey under Bruno? Or can it all be chalked up to injuries, Covid, and just plain bad puck luck? Also, any murmurs on how active Zito will be at the deadline/what he’s looking to add?
Thanks to you and Colby for keeping the content rolling for us starved Panther fans
A question on Lundell as well. He has seemed poised and plays the game at a high IQ level from what I’ve observed so far. By the type of minutes he’s getting, the club is enamored with him as well. Is it too early to project his place long term with the organization?
Seems like there has been almost no contribution from Tippett and Vatrano guys who should get
Around 25 goals. Any speculation why? Also,if play continues this way, any thought to Paul Maurice?
What’s going on with face offs? We’re getting killed. Same with power play. Have we overrated this team? They should be and need to be better. And how much does the loss of Q factor into the falloff?
Heard anything about players coming off injured and Covid lists? Any idea what the roster will look like at Carolina (assuming we play that game)?
When will Acciari be coming back? And whenever the season resumes, will Barkov be back?
I’ll toss you a softball: What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
