ALONE AGAIN: Mike Weaver Says Fans Will Come

TWITTER: @GeorgeRichards

The Panthers had their smallest announced attendance in six seasons on Tuesday against Ottawa.

An estimated 500 fans were in the building for warmups. Approximately 8,000 watched the game in an arena that holds close to 20,000.

Florida's official announced attendance of 10,074 was just a handful more than reported for a Halloween game in 2008 against Carolina.

"In Florida, if you have a good team, people will come,'' defenseman Mike Weaver said.

"We're not winning at home right now. Now is the time to move forward.''

Maybe they should move to the Kendall Ice Arena?

Maybe the owner should spend some money and get some bonafide NHL-caliber players for this team.

Doesn't help that Ottawa is not exactly a draw... I will be one of the 8,000 to watch Panthers beat the Jets...

I was there and will be at every game I can. Love the Panthers and live hockey. True fans come, win or lose. Florida doesn't have a compassionate fan base and that's too bad.
