Florida Panthers GM Bill Zito held a press conference on the first day of free agency on the patio of a lounge on the club level at BB&T Center Wednesday afternoon.

As Zito spoke, lightning flashed in the background as one of our famous South Florida thunderstorms rolled in across the Everglades toward Sunrise.

Zito wrapped things up just before the skies opened which was about the most exciting part of the Florida’s day.

While other teams around the league were throwing millions of dollars at new players, Zito and his front office mostly stayed out of the fray.

It wasn’t because they didn’t want to get into the game — but because their plan was to try and keep as many of their own players as they could.
