Giving a line a nickname is one of hockey’s great traditions. For the Florida Panthers, it is a little premature to give their new top line any sort of monicker.
After all, the season will not even start until Sunday night when the Chicago Blackhawks visit BB&T Center.
Secondly, we do not even know if the line we have been seeing in practice and in scrimmages will be Florida’s top trio.
Here is what we know: For the past few days, the Panthers have been running a revamped top six.
With Evgenii Dadonov and Mike Hoffman gone, we knew the Panthers had some work to do within their top six.
Who would go where and with whom?
