Panthers need to run the table in their final 3 games to make the playoffs: two against Boston and one against Buffalo.

A good sign at least. In a game where the Panthros had nothing to play for, had to use both goalies, and their opponent was fighting for a shot at the division title, they won in decisive fashion.

DU's own Henrik Borgstrom gets his first NHL goal.

Despite the major stumbles of the last year, the Cats are in pretty good shape. This could be their lineup next year.

Huberdeau - Barkov - Dadonov
Borgstrom - Trocheck - Bjugstad
Vatrano - McCann - Tippett
McGinn - Malgin - Mamin
Sceviour, MacKenzie

Yandle - Ekblad
Matheson - Pysyk
McCoshen - Weegar

Luongo
Reimer

Imagine if they threw their hat into the ring for the services of one Erik Karlsson. Y'know, I think they have the pieces to do it.

I think the Cats are going to make a big splash this offseason. In the running for Kovalchuk, could be in on Skinner. They're set at centre and have enough youth to potentially trade for a star.

So in the end, it was Hoffman the Cats got. Good trade in pure hockey terms, as for the rest, well, let's not even mention it.

Huberdeau - Barkov - Dadonov
Hoffman - Trocheck - Bjugstad
McCann - Borgstrom - Vatrano
Sceviour - MacKenzie - Mamin

That's a really solid and deep forward group, especially if McCann and Borgstrom continue to develop as planned.

My biggest concern would be on D. Someone on Twitter made some statistical comparisons between Aaron Ekblad and Dion Phaneuf and while I don't think the Dion is a terrible player, it'd be a huge setback for Florida if their franchise defender ended up not being a franchise defender.

Cats add a possibly still useful Troy Brouwer to their deep forward ranks.

If Luongmerson can hold up as a three-headed beast in net, this team can contend for the division. I like the defence, provided Matty takes another step forward, Ekblad stays healthy and Kiselevich cracks the lineup.

I don't understand that move at all. They have more than enough depth at forward, this just makes it all the more likely they'll have to waive/trade someone before the season and start the year with a truly awful fourth line.

Cats have a pretty good forward group already with an average D corps. They earned more points than the Avs did last year and narrowly missed the playoffs.

After picking up Hoffman from SJ, they have loads of offensive punch and don't really need Brouwer to score which is a good thing. Suppose he was brought in to eat up some bottom 6 minutes and help on the defensive side of the puck -- but they really don't need him.

Barkov named captain. He is far and away their best player, and will be for a long time.

I watched this segment from either last season or the one before where they had Sasha mic'd up, I came away thinking he was captain material for sure. Awesome news. It's no wonder that had they not taken MacKinnon in 2013, Barkov was the Avs' second choice.

Surprised Borgstrom didn't make the team. Oh well, they're pretty good regardless.

He would've been at most a 3rd line winger, guess they want him to get more meaningful minutes. I do wonder if that means they'll move a core player to make room for him.

Despite giving up Marchessault and Smith for literally nothing they actually have a lot of solid talent in the pipeline.
