LBC Quick-Poll: On Eve Of Florida Panthers' Season-Ender, Which Event Are You Most Looking Forward To?

Draft? UFA Day? What's got your attention?

It's been an interesting ride to say the least, as only a calendar year ago fans new and old were beyond excited - even after a first-round playoff loss - at the Cats' famous "blueprint" and how it blossomed far earlier than even the most jaded and longtime follower could have imagined.

This season? Not so much, but plenty of goodness was found between the losses: Jonathan Huberdeau's rookie efforts resulting in a possible Calder campaign, a somewhat stunning career revival by a healthy Peter Mueller (the club's 2013 Masterton entry), a rather unexpected Big League workload for Jacob Markstrom, Club Red's remarkable acceptance by fans around the league Tomas Kopecky's otherworldly 15 goals, and a veritable who's who of prospects making their NHL debuts. Plenty of other minor highlights to, well, highlight but we'll save that for another post. For now, onto the poll...
