The new site: http://panthers.nhl.com/ is up and running. The wallpapers that Pstic and philroy did for us will be put up there during the summer. Lots of news coming from the Panthers but I can't talk about all of that just yet. This should be an interesting offseason to say the least :D .

Here's our official press release. As you can see all 30 NHL teams will use the Panthers and Hurricanes new format for leaguewide uniformity.

PANTHERS RE-LAUNCH WEBSITE

floridapanthers.com Becomes 2nd NHL Team Website to

SUNRISE, Fla. ? Sunrise Sports & Entertainment (SSE) and the Florida Panthers announced today the re-launch of the team?s official website, floridapanthers.com (can also be accessed at panthers.nhl.com).

The Panthers have cheerleaders??

Damn you beat me to it!!! That was my first thought as well! :D

Yes we have the Sziro Jewelry Ice Dancers! The fans really like them. They help the mascot Stanley C. Panther throw T-shirts into the audience and such. Because it's South Florida, our teams have gone more towards the ENTERTAINMENT approach rather than a sports approach. The Heat use an in house DJ during the game to get the crowd fired up. He's one of the DJ's from our local radio stations that plays hip hop and club music. The Panthers do the Ice Dancers and a bunch of other ideas to lend to the idea that Heat and Panther games are a big PARTY rather than just a sporting event. The Marlins are having the classic rock band Kansas play after their game on May 5th. They've sung songs such as Wayward Son. Again this lends to the idea that sports aren't enough without the party atmosphere in South Florida. Do I agree with it? Not really, but that's the fanbase here.

So much for allowing more leeway like the NBA does with their templates.

Which also makes me wonder that the economics of the game is reflected on website design.

God yes, it's the only thing keeping me at Panthers.com.

And seems like there's still work to be done, the image of the fan kid and the panther itself on the masthead still have jagged edge pixelization, as if cut from a white background and just stuck haphazardly on the new image.

I guess so... Allie has become my favourite.

Have to go with Michele!

Michele is a lawyer during her non-Panthers work hours. Go figure!? Smart and hot.

Oh, if you've worked in the legal field for as long as I have, young padawan, you will know that being attorney does not indicate any sort of high intelligence level. It only means you had the time and money to slosh thru law school and sit thru the bar exam.

That being said, attorney eye candy, always a plus when doing the first year associate hiring.

So sorry if I sound stupid...but is all of the site content changing? like just for example, will there still be Pominville's playoff blog and stuff like that?

And omg will this be an improvement over the sabres site. The only thing I'm not a fan of so far on these new ones is the adds and stuff on the main page. It seems kind of cluttered.
