On paper, at least, the Panthers appear to be the Atlantic’s fourth best team once again. There’s still a bit of murky waters in what direction exactly the team is headed in, but they don’t appear like they’re satisfied to be stuck in mediocrity. Whether they find it out of there is another question entirely. The team’s biggest move this summer involved acquiring high-end winger Mike Hoffman in a trade (via the San Jose Sharks), after a falling out with ex-teammate Erik Karlsson in a potential cyberbullying case.

But while there’s reasons for optimism, the Panthers started slowly last season and a late-season push wasn’t quite enough to see them climb out of the hole. Injuries weren’t kind to the team for a second consecutive season, but they happen to every team and highlight a lack of depth more than anything else. Alex Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau form a great one-two punch, with the pair both signed for $5.9 million cap hits for the next four and five seasons, respectively. Evgeny Dadonov put up 65 points in 74 games last season in his return to the NHL, and as a whole the team managed 248 goals last season, good enough for 14th in the NHL.

On the back end, Aaron Ekblad leads the way, with Keith Yandle’s five years left on his deal at $6.35 M AAV looking daunting and like a potential albatross deal as each season passes. Mike Matheson’s eight-year contract extension raises some eyebrows, while Mark Pysyk rounds out the team’s top four at a hit of just $2.73 M AAV.

The team’s still hurt more than anything by a historically bungled expansion draft, gifting Jonathan Marchessault AND Reilly Smith to the Vegas Golden Knights for protection of Alex Petrovic. The goaltending situation features two players who’ve been the subject of tandem goalies for much of their careers, but they’ve made it work as one of the league’s top duos. James Reimer and Roberto Luongo (along with nine games of Harri Sateri and two of Antti Niemi) combined for a .919 mark this past season, good enough to be .007 better than league average.

Consistency will be the biggest issue for the Panthers this season, as they’ll need to their find their scoring touch early on and be in contention for a wildcard spot from day 1. Perhaps what this team needs more than anything is a boost of confidence from a hot start, as it’ll be a marathon to see if this team can earn the 95-or-so points needed to clinch a postseason spot.

With the Panthers, it’s hard to find a ton of “overly bad”, but it’s tough to really sell this team as much better than mediocre again. In an Atlantic Division with three great teams at the top, Florida’s going to need all the bounces going their way in order to make a strong push to return to the playoffs.
