Quick Thoughts IV

- The Panthers and Rangers are apprently the front runner for former Carolina Hurricane Dennis Seidenberg. Right now these are just reports, which is another fancy word for rumors, but we will see where it goes. Seidenberg would be a solid edition to a D-core that is not as strong as it was last year. He could easily step in if Allen goes down again, or if the younger guys are not NHL ready.

- The Florida Panthers are hosting the third annual Face-Off Luncheon on October 7th. The past two years have sold out and raised a lot of money for charity, so if you have the cash feel free to help the cause. A bonus is that you get to have lunch with a Panthers player. Single tickets are $100, tables for ten are $900.

- Former Panther Mike Sillinger announced his retirement yesterday. Sillinger was the NHL's journey man, playing for twelve different teams during his career. Mike is one of those guys that leaves everything on the ice, and he will be missed.

- UFA Mats Sundin is expected to make an announcement about his career in the coming weeks. No one knows if he plans to play another year or if he is calling it quits. I personally like Mats Sundin, he is one of my favorite players, and one love to see him play again.

- A little SSH news for you. Sunshine State Hockey has reached fifty two followers through the main site, Facebook, and Twitter. I just want to thank everyone who spread the word about SSH, and hope that you continue to do so. Without you guys reading my articles it makes what I am doing pointless. Thank you again.

If you have any questions or comments send them to or drop them off at SSH's official Facebook or Twitter page.
