Are you a disgruntled Miami Dolphins fan sick of all the loss rumors and Deshaun Watson?
Maybe you’re a Hurricanes fan who can’t stand watching Manny Diaz coach another game.
Maybe you’re a Marlins fan who’s sick of hearing that your baseball team is two years away from being two years from now.
Well Miami sports fans, we’ve got you covered: Introducing the Florida Panthers, a professional hockey team just off the freeway in scenic Sunrise, Florida!
Anyone can turn their attention to the Miami Heat when the going gets tough in the fall. But maybe – just maybe – this is the year you should pay more attention to the South Florida National Hockey League (NHL) team. Here’s why.
They are the best team the Florida Panthers have ever made on the ice. Get on board before the train fills up.

There’s no better time to catch the bandwagon
If you’ve lived in South Florida for years but never paid much attention to the Panthers, now is the time to fix this. You will jump on the train at the most optimal time.
The Panthers are likely to be one of the best teams in the NHL this season. If you’re looking to relieve yourself from all the loss hurricanes, dolphins, and marlins have brought to your life, tune in to a few Panthers games and enjoy a few well-deserved breaths of fresh air.
We promise no one will judge you if you get on board now.

The Panthers already have elite talent on their roster
If you listen to Manny Diaz talk about Hurricanes issues, his promise is that things will someday improve once the current kids he’s recruited graduate, move on to day jobs, and new recruits arrive. . It is never his fault; he just needs better talent. The Marlins have been promising to spend on talent for years. Maybe it’s this offseason? We won’t hold our breath. The Dolphins? They’ll blow first-round picks under GM Chris Grier through to 2030 at this rate.
The Panthers already have the best talent in the league, and it’s been stuck for years.
Aaron Ekblad and Aleksander “Sasha” Barkov are elite NHL players you can count on being at Sunrise every season. Barkov, in particular, has just been awarded a new eight-year contract. Pair these two stars with an assortment of other talented Panthers and you’ve got a solid core.
The Panthers are South Florida’s closest thing to a “Big 3” right now.
The Panthers have their own Pat Riley in general manager Bill Zito
If you’re going to invest in another South Florida team and open up to (let’s face it) more pain, it’s good to know that team decision-making is in good hands. Along with general manager Bill Zito, the Panthers have one of the best front-office minds in all of professional hockey.
From re-signing Sasha Barkov to writing Spencer Knight, to Ryan Lomberg and trading for players like Sam Bennett, it seems every button Zito pushed during his time in Florida has found the right note. .
The Panthers have the best rivalry in South Florida
Heat-Knicks? Dolphins-Jets? Hurricanes-Seminoles? Marlins-Braves?
All Miami rivalries have juice, but currently none are as juicy as the Panthers-Lightning rivalry. Anyone who watched the Panthers-Lightning playoff game last season knows nothing quite like the intensity of a game between rivals Florida.
Not only that, but there is some real fighting involved (as opposed to a bunch of grown men pretending they want smoke knowing it never will).
A Panthers-Lightning match is arguably the best ticket in town right now.
The next showdown will take place on Saturday, November 13 at the Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa.

The Panthers have the best play-by-play voice in town
Let’s be honest: The Miami Heat are no longer the best TV team in town. The Florida Panthers hold the title with incredible calls from Steve Goldstein.
The Marlins are a veritable revolving door of barely listenable talent, and there is no local Dolphins TV team. The Heat has made a lot of changes to their TV and radio shows lately, and it shows. It’s the Panthers that consistently deliver the most exciting and thoughtful viewing experience these days.
There is a new king in town.
