Beezer carried them to a Cup Final appearance in 1996. I'd say he had a pretty big effect.
and what kind of lasting impact has that made? Their building is empty and they pretty much give tickets away.
Yeah, but that's completely different. Their management mismanaging things for almost a decade is to blame in this scenario.
good point. A good management team would really be the only thing that could have a big effect on that franchise at this point. Unless they somehow become a consistent winner that can generate an interest in the sport they will be folding before any management or superstar can have a large effect on the Panthers or their fans.
I sometimes wonder if they even enjoyed watching the games when they made it deep with Beezer or if they just liked the idea of throwing plastic rats on the ice.
