Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Forward lines: shuffle, rinse, repeat.

Looks as if forward Jimmy Hayes (above) has played his way onto Florida's roster, at least for now, with a 4-shot, 3-hit effort Monday vs the Sens. Recognizing a bright spot, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant utilized Hayes between Jussi Jokinen and Aleksander Barkov in yesterday's practice in hopes of sparking the first line. Will it hold until tomorrow's matchup in Buffalo?

It's a Caterwaul, so scare up your links & thoughts as version 2.0 of the new season gets rolling Friday (GameThread at 6:30).
