Poll: Who would you add to Panthers' Mount Puckmore?


Figured now would be as fine a time as any to gauge thoughts from around Cats Country in this, the fallout stage of the Puck Daddy "Four Faces of the Florida Panthers" withdrawal syndrome.

A side note: I hate the term "Cats Country" with a brutal, just-short-of-violent hatred. Shall never be employed here again.

It was fulfilling to learn no one objected to a single one of my choices passions continue to run deep among Florida fans as to who they individually believe represents the club best. In choosing "my" four names, I simply went with those who were the first to come to mind, outside of folks currently active with the team. Knew from the start there would be considerable angst among Panthers fandom in regard to one or more of the names; let's be honest, when John Vanbiesbrouck, Olli Jokinen, Pavel Bure, and Alan Cohen are mentioned in the same breath, things could get ugly.

That said, it's time for another poll...and don't bail out with a vote and no explanation; love to hear the reasoning for your selection in the comments. Feel free to argue my choices as well (just being polite; no way anyone disagrees. Right? Hello...?).

Assuming there was a fifth spot, who would you add to Mount Puckmore?

Wayne Huizenga - club founder12
Scott Mellanby - an "original" Panther and four-year captain37
Bill Torrey - from the start, he's done everything but play10
Paul Laus - another "original"; kept opposition honest for nine seasons19
Roberto Luongo - can't fathom why but someone out there must love him2
Mike Keenan - certainly shaped the club well beyond his years of service2
A rubber rat - just 'cuz.20
Doug MacLean - head coach of Stanley Cup Final team5
Bill Lindsay - iconic goal versus BOS in '96 Eastern Semis8
Other - give it up in the comments3
