Goaltending was a major problem last year for the Panthers, who finished with the worst record in the NHL.
As it stands, Jacob Markstrom and Scott Clemmensen (who just had knee surgery, by the way) are slated to share duties in Florida. The former, just 23 years old, is supposed to be the future in Florida; however, he still has much to prove after a so-so 2013 season in which his save percentage finished at .901.
Thomas, according to his agent, wants to be a starter on the team he joins. Would he get that opportunity with the Panthers, or are they committed to Markstrom as their number one for 2013-14?
At the very least, we know that Florida is intrigued at the possibility of adding the two-time Vezina Trophy winner.
