Even The Scoreboard Was A No-Show

Actually the scoreboard just wasn't ready for the Florida Panthers preseason home opener, and neither were the fans! It was a dreadful turnout for the Panthers first game back  at the BB&T Center. Although it was a Monday afternoon game, I have never seen a less attended game in the modern NHL era. Worse yet, I have seen bigger crowds for our local Mizzou college hockey team which has very few fans, even here in its hometown of Columbia.

Of course you can't base the team's status on one preseason game, especially a weekday afternoon game, however it does have to throw up a caution flag in the team offices regarding the future outlook.
