Panthers_Tomas_Vokoun_2013 [1]DALLAS — When training camp opened last month, the lack of enthusiasm surrounding the Florida Panthers was quite noticeable.

Picked by most pundits to repeat last season’s last-place finish, the Panthers didn’t seem to have much life.

In the three weeks from the start of camp until Thursday night’s season opener, however, there has been a most definite change.

The Panthers may still finish near the bottom of the standings, only now they feel they have a chance to do more. General manager Dale Tallon was able to bring in NHL veterans to supplant a supposed youth (meaning much more inexpensive) movement.
