1. Florida Panthers (Previous Ranking: 1)

The Panthers have elite prospects and plenty of them. The offensive-minded Jonathan Huberdeau (Saint John-QMJHL) heads up a list of players who have a chance to make an impact in the near future. Fellow forwards Quinton Howden (Moose Jaw-WHL) and Nick Bjugstad (Minnesota-NCAA) are joined by defensemen Alex Petrovic (Red Deer-WHL) and Michael Matheson (Dubuque-USHL) -- this year's first-round selection -- to form a quality group of up-and-coming talents.

Sleeper Prospect: Alexander Delnov, LW, (RUS) (fourth round/2012) His effort is first-rate and his talent is better than the average fourth-rounder. I can see him being a steal down the line.

The Panthers are set to open the 2012-13 season Oct. 13 against the Tampa Bay Lightning and will raise a Southeast Division Championship banner in a pre-game ceremony. Select lower-bowl season tickets are available for as low as $30 now by calling 954-835-PUCK or clicking to FloridaPanthers.com and single-game tickets will be on sale later this summer.
