The Florida Panthers find themselves in a unique predicament this offseason.
After finishing up their greatest regular season in team history, the Panthers got swept by the Lightning and found themselves in the midst of a coaching search.
Jack Adams runner-up Andrew Brunette has been replaced by Paul Maurice.
Florida also finds itself with just $3 million in cap space (not counting Anthony Duclair’s likely move to LTIR) to work with to re-sign Claude Giroux, Mason Marchment and Eetu Luostarinen, among others.
A lot of different options are on the table and I am sure you guys have a lot of questions about that.
I am here to answer them.

Answers to your questions will run on Thursday — before the NHL Draft kicks off in Montreal.
Of course, they do not have to be hockey related either; this is the offseason and we like to have fun around here.
All options are on the table.
