At this time last year, we were talking about the Florida Panthers being a legitimate contender for the Stanley Cup.

Going into the second half of the 2022-23 season, however, these Panthers look like they could be the first team in nine years to go from winning the NHL’s Presidents’ Trophy to missing the playoffs entirely.

A 5-1 loss in Dallas on Sunday marked the official end to what has been a very disappointing first half of the team’s season.
