The Florida Panthers entered this season with aspirations of competing or at least taking a notable step forward after posting the worst record in the NHL last season. Instead they have lost six straight games to drop to 3-8-4.
Their 4-3 overtime defeat against the struggling Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday prompted a late night management meeting that included Panthers GM Dale Tallon and minority owner Doug Cifu, according to the Miami Herald.
It’s clear the front office is unhappy with the state of the Panthers, but head coach Kevin Dineen still has a job for the moment.
“There will be changes though,” Tallon said outside the arena. “I don’t make rash decisions. None of us are happy. I have to fix this and I will. We’re better than this.”
The Panthers are about to begin a three-game road trip that involves contests against Boston, Ottawa, and the New York Rangers.
