The Florida Panthers will play game two of the four game roadie this afternoon with a 4:00 pm eastern time start against the Edmonton Oilers and Connor McDavid (McJesus). This will be the first mailbag of the regular season, and after 10 games the fans have some very intriguing questions.
Let’s get started.
Our first question comes from: Alexis Lafrineier @ChrisAGrega:
Do you think that losing 4 out of 5 points in overtime will come back to haunt the Florida Panthers come April? And it certainly would have been nice to bank some points early in the season. Despite the fact that the Panthers have been accumulating points in each of their last 7 games, it would be much more comforting to have been able to win out in at least two of the overtime/shootout games. But, after 10 games they have only 2 regulation losses, which is a major accomplishment this early in the season. The shootout farce is something that I don’t agree with, and they need to get better in that department. Or rather, maybe close the games out in regulation. Once they start firing on all cylinders, they’ll be grabbing more of those points that are up for grabs in overtime and the shootout.
Next is HockeyChick6 @Pam_Abrell who wants to know:
Weegar has really upped his game this season, and is flourishing under Q’s tutelage, already scoring 3 goals. How many goals/points do you think he gets this season? MacKenzie Weegar has likely been the best defenceman so far this season for the Panthers. Q’s confidence in him shows that he believes that Weegar can a reliable player at both ends of the ice. Weegar already has 6 points in 10 games, which isn’t a pace that he’ll maintain, but I see him good for 25-30 as a realistic range provided he doesn’t have a lapse in performance.
