 2013-14 RECAP

 The Florida Panthers struggled along yet again for most of the 2013-14 season, and were never really a factor with a patchwork lineup and questionable goaltending.  Some of that might have changed at the trade deadline when the Panthers re-acquired Roberto Luongo to be their #1 goalie.  On the plus side, the Panthers won the draft lottery and had their pick of the crop and chose stud defenseman Aaron Ekblad with the first overall pick.
