This would have been the weekend the NHL’s biggest and brightest stars would have descended into South Florida for a few days of rest, relaxation and some hockey.
The Panthers hope to play host to the 2022 NHL All-Star Weekend after the 2021 version was cancelled due to the pandemic — and all the restrictions which have come with holding this season at all.
So, instead of stargazing in Fort Lauderdale and Sunrise, we will have to settle for watching the Panthers play a two-game set in Detroit this weekend.
It’ll have to do.
To set the mood for the Panthers’ final series of this odd opening month to the 2021 season, it’s time for the January Mailbag.
You know the deal; if you have any questions about the Panthers — or really, anything — go ahead and ask them.
I will try and answer them all on Friday.
We may not have the NHL All-Star Weekend in Sunrise but we will have a #FlaPanthers Mailbag! If you have a question for Friday’s Q&A, leave it on this tweet or in the comment section of the link below. https://t.co/WAwKZigJ2I

To get your questions in, feel free to leave them on the comment section of this post or visit the Twitter link above and do it there. Whatever’s easier.
I will jump into these on Friday and post them with my answers later in the day.
Hey, it’s not the skills competition, but it’s something.
Here is last month’s mailbag — one done before training camp even started — if you want to go back in time a little.
