Thursday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

"My feeling [on the power play] is when you practice it — like today when it’s 20 minutes long, sometimes, it might be only five minutes long — at least we’re getting the puck and we’re moving it around. What it does is create conversations and looks that we can design on boards and try to be smart. When players get out there and move the puck around, that’s where the exchange of ideas comes from."

So it's an official day off for the Cats after one can only surmise were a tough few practice sessions following Tuesday's loss in Pittsburgh. 

Going forward, the evolution of Florida's power play into one of the league's elite is not an altogether ridiculous assumption with assistant coach Craig Ramsay on the payroll; he remains among the best minds in the game.
