Panthers bid for upcoming NHL All Star game
Not much of a surprise considering the recent ownership transfer, but the Panthers have evidently thrown their hat into the NHL ring in a bid to draw another All Star game to Sunrise.
Very little is known at this stage beyond the bid asking for one of the 2011, 2012, or 2013 "classics".
This is an excellent move by the organization on a number of fronts, but foremost in showcasing the club as "alive", "existing", and having a future worthy of being shown to the world.
The Panthers previously hosted the 2003 NHL All Star Game. More to come as this develops.
