FanShot link: Luongo symbolizes Florida Panthers revitalization

Via Stephen Whyno/CP... While the Canucks head in the direction of a rebuild, the Panthers look like a team on the upward climb thanks to new owner Vinny Viola and a cadre of young prospects GM Dale Tallon has assembled in the NHL's southernmost market. Through two games with his new team, Luongo has already caught a glimpse of what he and many hockey people believe is a bright future for the Panthers. Luongo sees potential stars in Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad and a handful more young players around the locker-room. At 34 years old, he wants to contribute to the revival of the franchise rather than riding coattails. "It's all about making a commitment to bringing some people in and trying to build a winner," Luongo said Sunday night after facing the Boston Bruins. "That's what it's all about for me. I'm not here to fade into the sunset. I want to be part of something special coming here."

Charting the formation of Team USA's Olympic roster from the inside

An outstanding must-read article by ESPN's Scott Burnside, which chronicles the selection process of America's 2014 Olympic men's hockey team. Florida's Dale Talon is a member of the committee, and gets in a few Tallonesque quotes along the way. Panthers goaltender Tim Thomas, interestingly, is never mentioned in mix of netminders.

From Scott Burnside: "In South Florida, the path is less clear [than with Chicago's recent rebuild], although the fan base isn't as bad as many outside the area believe. The Panthers actually ranked 22nd in average attendance last season and the season-ticket base is in the neighborhood of 10,000. That's not to suggest this is Hockeytown South; but, as with so many markets, the key to finding out what this market is capable of is to put a decent product on the ice." Much more above.
