Disaster news in Florida: Panthers situation becomes more complicated, much to the Canadian's delight

The second favorite team for Canadiens fans to follow is without a doubt the Florida Panthers.

Given that the Tricolore holds their first round selection in the upcoming draft, thanks to last year's genius Kent Hughes trade involving defenseman Ben Chiarot, everyone is hoping for a ton of losses for Florida.

The more losses that pile up, the higher their pick climbs in the draft order, and the more the Habs gain in the end.

However, some potentially catastrophic news just came from the Panthers, as the team's talented young goalie, Spencer Knight, was placed on the injured list yesterday, according to CapFriendly.



With Sergei Bobrovsky struggling lately, it's going to be tough for the Panthers to climb back up the standings.

The Russian netminder has a very ordinary 3.26 GAA and .895 SV% in 24 games played this season.

We don't wish bad luck on anyone, but we do make an exception for the Panthers, and this is the kind of news that will make Montreal fans happy.

Imagine if the CH won the lottery with this pick. It would be a crazy scenario for the future of the franchise.
