Looking To 2014

As 2013 comes to a close, we get ready to turn the page to 2014 and the Panthers are hoping for bigger and better things in the new year. Here's a look at what I am hoping to see for the Panthers in 2014 led by a lot of their Young Guns.

Jonathan Huberdeau to take another step forward and start to emerge as the star that he is destined to become in the NHL.

Aleksander Barkov continues to develop and becomes a dominate two-way forward who will not only score goals but will be a shut down centerman night in and night out.

Nick Bjugstad has already grown by leaps and bounds and I believe he has the ability to be a big-time star. I also hope to see him become a leader on this young Panther team.

Jacob Markstrom needs to prove to everyone that he is the goaltender of the future.

Erik Gudbranson has shown he can dominate physically. Would like to see his offensive game to continue to evolve. He has a a big shot and skates extremely well no reason to think he shouldn't.

Panther veteran players Tomas Fleischmann, Brian Campbell, Tomas Kopecky, Sean Bergenheim and Scottie Upshall to play at or above their potential.

For a team to be successful the elder statesman must be consistent in their production.

A healthy Tim Thomas.

Ed Jovanovski to return to the game he loves and Captain this team on the ice.

This Panther team is loaded with potential. Potential is one thing but realizing that potential is something totally different. I am hoping 2014 is the year that potential turns into reality.

Happy New Year!
