Florida Panthers: Lets Wrap It Up ... Season Finale TODAY

WrapWell, it doesn't seem like that long ago that we were in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, for the start of training camp.

OK, it kind of does.

But this is it kids. The end.

And what a 2009-10 season it was!

Here are some of the highlights:

-- The Panthers win the season opener in Helsinki.

-- The Panthers sweep a three game road trip through Buffalo, Detroit and New York.

-- Tomas Vokoun.

Here are some of the lowlights:

-- Panthers lost second game in Helsinki 4-0.

-- After sweeping three games in Buffalo, Detroit and New York, Panthers come home, put on new uniforms designed by the Tampa Bay Rays and lose three straight.

-- Tomas Vokoun gets little support way too many times as Panthers go a franchise record 14 straight games with two goals or less.

And I could write up more lowlights, but I have a game to watch here.

-- Anyway, here's some of the news...

We've seen the last of these players -- at least for this season:

Vokoun; Cory Stillman; Byron Bitz; Gregory Campbell.

Today is fan appreciation day. If you are a fan, and buy tickets, I would think the Panthers appreciate you. For a franchise that hasn't made the playoffs in a decade, they have to be pretty happy to still have you around.
