— In the last few weeks, Florida Panthers fans have been venting about the way the NHL has handled the season.
One Florida Panthers fan tweeted that the team is getting worse every game, and a group of fans gathered in Tampa recently to complain about the lack of NHL players to play hockey with.
Now, a new report from the Tampa Bay Times suggests the Panthers could be in for a repeat this season.
A Panthers insider says the Panthers are working to replace a full-time, full-contact goalie, and are looking to trade for a goaltender.
One person familiar with the talks said the team’s main focus is to get a full season out of a goalie.
The source also said the Panthers, if they do get a goalie, could move forward with another goaltender, with the Panthers trying to trade him to a team that doesn’t want to take a goalie with a high-priced cap hit.
Another person familiar said the trade talks between the Panthers and the Tampa Kings are moving slowly.
“The team is focused on a full year and will continue to focus on getting that done,” the source said.
“No decision has been made.
It’s still in the very early stages.”
This person declined to be identified.
The Panthers haven’t played since Oct. 15.
They lost in the first round against the New Jersey Devils and then lost to the Philadelphia Flyers in the second round.
The Sharks beat the Panthers in the Stanley Cup final, and the Penguins won the final.
The Kings won the Stanley Stanley Cup in 2016, and they lost to Los Angeles in Game 7.
The Lightning won the Eastern Conference finals in 2017, and then fell to the Capitals in the Eastern Final.
There are currently no teams in the Western Conference.
In fact, the NHL says there are no teams left in the conference.
The league announced that the 2018-19 season will be shortened by two games, as teams play six games instead of seven.
The shortened schedule also means there are fewer games in the NHL’s schedule for the coming season, which means there’s more time to work on a long-term deal.
“It’s been the most frustrating season I’ve ever had in the past few years,” said Panthers forward Braden Holtby, who scored five goals and six assists in 21 playoff games.
“We just need to keep going and keep pushing.”
The Panthers won two Stanley Cups during the regular season, but the team has struggled since.
The team finished last in the Pacific Division last season, and it hasn’t been competitive since the NHL started playing on TV in the summer of 2018.
The NHL has been criticized for not moving quickly enough to improve the franchise’s position, but there have been reports of the league working to increase the number of regular-season games and the amount of time players have to get used to the league’s rules.
The AHL, which started play in 2018, will also be allowed to add to its schedule in the next few years, and there are plans to expand the league.
The Tampa Kings and Panthers have been in talks about trading for a goalie since mid-October, the Times reported.
That deal is still pending a ruling from the NHLPA.
