- The Florida Panthers had their greatest playoff run in franchise history last season, making it to the Stanley Cup Final
- The team has made significant changes to the roster, but the offense remains lethal
- Goaltending will be a key factor in the team's success this season
The Florida Panthers are looking to repeat their successful playoff run from last season and win the Stanley Cup. Despite some changes to their roster, the offense remains strong with key players like Matthew Tkachuk and Aleksander Barkov. The addition of new defensive pieces provides hope for a solid defense, while prospects like Mackie Samoskevich have shown promise in the preseason. The team will rely on veteran goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, along with backup Spencer Knight, to have a strong goaltending performance. However, they face a tough challenge with the competitive Eastern Conference.
