The Florida Panthers are already feeling the positive impact of having Joel Quenneville as their coach.
Steve Goldstein, the voice of the Panthers on Fox Sports Florida, joined Dan Rosen and Shawn Roarke on this week's episode of NHL @TheRink podcast to discuss Quenneville and the Panthers, who defeated the New Jersey Devils on Monday to conclude a road trip in which they picked up four of a possible six points.
"It's only been six games, but yeah, there is a belief on this team," Goldstein said about Quenneville, who led the Chicago Blackhawks to three Stanley Cup titles. "And I think they're realizing, 'Hey, that guy has won a ton, if we play the way he wants us to, we've got a [heck] of a team."
Rosen and Roarke were also joined by Mike Kelly, a data-driven analyst for NHL Network and ThePointHockey.com to talk about what the numbers are saying about a handful of teams, including the Toronto Maple Leafs and the defending Stanley Cup champions St. Louis Blues.
Rosen, NHL.com senior writer, and Roarke, NHL.com senior director of editorial, also did their own variation of the stock market, giving reasons for why they're either buying or selling off several teams after the first two weeks of the season.
Rosen and Roarke, following the story of soccer goalie Peter Cech trying his hand at hockey with the Guildford Phoenix in Great Britain, also discussed athletes from other sports that they would like to see on the ice and even gave them positions. Wait until you hear where they slot in NFL players like Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso.
