On the day he officially traded Patric Hornqvist to the Panthers, Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford spoke of what the veteran forward meant to his team.
“He changed the culture,” Rutherford said Thursday.
The Panthers are hoping, again, a newcomer with the passion and pedigree of Hornqvist can help change their culture, their attitude.
For years, the Panthers have spoke more about “culture” than even the Miami Heat.
The big difference is, the Panthers’ talk has been about fixing it.
