With your Florida Panthers turning 18 next season, I thought it would be cool to see how an All-Time Panthers team would look. Despite only three playoff appearances, the Panthers have had some pretty good talent come through (mostly out) of the system and team. So here it is, the 18th Anniversary Florida Panthers Team.
Olli Jokinen, C (2000-2008)
567 Games, 188 Goals, 231 Assists, 419 Points (0.73 P/G)
All-time Panthers leader in points, goals, assists, game-winning goals, even strength goals, and shots. Longest serving Captain in Panthers history.
Pavel Bure, RW (1998-2002)
223 Games, 152 Goals, 99 Assists, 251 Points (1.13 P/G)
Only Panther to win the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy (which he won twice), holds to record most goals and points in a season by a Panther. Third in goals scored.
Scott Mellanby, RW (1993-2001)
552 Games, 157 Goals, 197 Assists, 354 Points (0.64 P/G)
Spawned the "rat trick" craze, second in all-time Panthers assists and points. First in Panthers power play goals,
Nathan Horton, RW (2003-2010)
422 Games, 142 Goals, 153 Assists, 295 Points (0.66 P/G)
Third in Panthers plus/minus, fifth in power play goals, and fourth in points and assists.

Defensemen will be another day. Feel free to name any forwards you think should be on the list in comments and try to go easy on me for putting Horton on the list.
What do you think of the list?
I like it. I appreciate the work you put into this, Crooklyn. (10 votes)
