Monday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

Stephen Weiss, Kris Versteeg, Sean Bergenheim and Jack Skille (#12 above, after scoring against San Jose in December) each picked up a shortie in the most recently completed season, which was two better than last-place Detroit (!) and Tampa Bay. As is no secret around these parts, New Jersey paced the league with 15.
