2010-2011 Record: 30 wins, 52 losses, 72 points
The Florida Panthers underwent a major makeover this season (complete with new home uniforms).
Goalie Tomas Vokoun is gone, replaced by Jose Theodore.
In a trade for Rotislav Olesz, the team acquired Brian Campbell from the Chicago Blackhawks.
Campbell's highest point total was in 2007-2008, when the defenseman scored eight goals with 54 assists. His production has dropped since, scoring 52, 38 and 27 points over the last three seasons. It should be noted that Campbell has also missed 31 games over the past two seasons.
However, Campbell is a career 0.5 point-per-game player. If he plays a full season there's no reason to believe the offensive defenseman cannot contribute 40+ points to the team.
Another veteran defenseman acquired was Ed Jovanovski, who was originally drafted by Florida first overall in the 1994 entry draft.
Jovanovski played just 50 games last season, producing 14 points and a plus/minus of 4. If he can play a full season, he could contribute anywhere between 35-50 points.
On the offensive side, Florida added Tomas Fleischmann, Kris Versteeg, Tomas Kopecky, Marcel Goc, Sean Bergenheim and Scottie Upshall.
Over the past two seasons, Fleischmann has scored 35 goals with 47 assists despite playing just 114 games. If the 27-year-old winger can stay healthy this season, he should produce 55 points or higher.
Versteeg and Kopecky will add 40-50 points each, plus Upshall, Goc and Bergenheim are reliable for 20-30 points each.
Additionally, the emergence of Evgeny Dadonov could see the 22-year-old scoring 40+ points in 2011-12.
The Panthers see a significant drop in goaltending ability, but have added a ton of offense, and will drastically improve this season.
Prediction: 85 Points
