No Captain -- Yet

Captain Just got back from practice and have a ton of work, so this is going to be short and sweet.

First, no one captain to start the season. Pete DeBoer says he wants to take more time to make his decision, with Stephen Weiss agreeing that not having a one captain plays more into the Panthers' team concept this season. May have a captain soon, but it also could be a rotating deal.

The three alternates: Weiss, Bryan Allen and Cory Stillman.

Murphy -- Don't know what's going on with Cory Murphy, although it doesn't sound like he's been picked up. Caught him coming out of the arena today, said he knows the FLA blueline is very strong and he's not upset with the Panthers for waiving him. If he is assigned to Rochester, he'll go, saying he'll continue to work his tail off in hopes of coming back.

-- We're going to talk to JM sometime around 3, so they'll be another update.

-- Karlis Skrastins did not practice again today, he won't be playing this weekend.

-- The two kids are still here, Shawn Matthias and Michael Frolik participating in today's action.

Murphy's a real class guy.

Instead of criticizing the waiver move, it looks like he's focusing on the opportunities this could open up for him either in Rochester or somewhere else.

Too bad about Skrastins...although it's refreshing to see so much depth on our blueline that the absence of both of these players isn't cause for alarm.

Murphy is a good PP guy and at his price it is surprising St. Louis or Pittsburgh don't pick him up considering their injuries on defense.

Looks like the combined efforts of the three newspapers have their first casualty in Brian Biggane. I see GR on the PP Post. I like you GR but I liked Biggane too. Hope he lands on a good paper somewhere, he is a great hockey writer.

The Miami Herald's hockey coverage -- at least for now -- will be shared with the Palm Beach Post. Brian Biggane is now covering the Miami Dolphins for the Post.

Thats good to hear George, get your name on double coverage! You are the best man!

Oh and congratulations Danny "Panera Bread" Pinyero (I probably butchered his last name there)for winning the contest!

Any news on what JM might have said about Murphy?
