Now this is something pleasant to see; not a single member of Panthers fandom wants this guy - who's fought adversity on a number of levels - to fail. With but one year on the contract, McArdle finds himself in either a rebirth or swansong. Would sure help things along if he could remain healthy; in any case it's a deal without risk for both sides. In Panthers-semi-related news, former Cat Gregory Campbell has avoided arbitration with Boston, accepting a two-year deal. And alas, make what you will of this.
