The team is, I think, starting to understand that everyone must work and everyone has to be absolutely committed to excellence. We're not going to tolerate anything but 100 percent dedication to the culture of the team first.

Panthers owner Vincent Viola. Much more from a fascinating interview conducted by the Sun-Sentinel's Craig Davis here.

Sun-Sentinel: Panthers' Jovo working with slumping Kulikov

The biggest lesson is less is more. A young defenseman has the tendency to do a little bit extra and it backfires. Get the puck moving, make your first pass, get it out of the zone and let someone else worry about what happens next. He'll come out of it. He's too good a player.

I didn't start off the way I wanted to. You can't hide under a pillow and you sure can't hide on the ice. You just have to grab the bull by the horns and work hard, make it work. Hard work does pay off. And we're playing very well. I'm happy for the opportunity.

Prediction: No one liked the Panthers to win the Southeast last year and few will pick them to repeat. But why mess with a good thing? Cats return to the top in a tight, tight race.

A reporter called me this morning from Vancouver and I said well, "Who's on his list?". He says, "It's very short". I said, "Well, how short is it?". He says, "One team: Florida"

The bottom line is that the Panthers’ current ownership did not get into hockey to lose money, and according to the county auditor they haven’t lost money. Florida, commonly presented as one of the league’s have-not teams, and an example of the dangers of over-expansion, is nothing of the sort: it’s a healthy business, carefully presented to appear like a money-losing operation.

We were on the Cats' bandwagon early last year and kudos to Dale Tallon and Kevin Dineen for delivering the team's first playoff berth since 2000. It won't get any easier in a suddenly compelling Southeast, but if the Panthers do end up with Roberto Luongo, as many believe will ultimately be the case, we like them as a playoff team once again

"Last Friday, players were allowed to come and go as they pleased. After practice, they could leisurely head to the locker room and hang out in the players' lounge afterward. On Monday, players found out things are a little bit different. The weight room, showers and locker room are off limits as is the parking lot. Players were seen parking in the main lot at the Coral Springs Iceplex as they hauled their gear to and from practice. The complex wouldn't allow players to store their equipment overnight."

More from Monday's obviously informal practice via On Frozen Pond here.

"While we remain optimistic that our Panthers will open the 2012-13 season as planned on Oct. 13, I also want to assure you that the work stoppage will not deter our organization from fulfilling its responsibilities to our fans and our community.
