Potvin Sucks! Florida Panthers Agree

You know the chant that you hear at every single New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden? Well, apparently Rangers fans aren't the only ones who think so :)

Well, not exactly, but you have to expect a headline like that from a Rangers fan. Right?

According to the Florida Panthers website today:
Sunrise Sports & Entertainment and the Florida Panthers announced today the restructuring of the hockey club’s broadcast teams on FOX Sports Florida and Sports Talk 790 the Ticket for the 2009-10 NHL season. Steve Goldstein, Billy Lindsay and Randy Moller will return to the broadcast booth in 09-10, while Denis Potvin will not be retained. Goldstein will continue to handle television play-by-play duties with Lindsay joining him as color analyst, while Moller will call Panthers radio broadcasts on 790 The Ticket.

“We look forward to teaming Steve “Goldie” Goldstein and Billy Lindsay on our television broadcasts and we are confident that they will provide entertaining and insightful commentary that will resonate well with our fans. Meanwhile, Randy Moller has done a superb job in the radio booth over the last two seasons providing our fans with exciting and colorful broadcasts that have gained attention on a local and national level.” said SSE president & chief operating officer Michael Yormark. “Finally, the entire Florida Panthers organization would like to thank Denis Potvin and his family for their service to our club, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
According to the Sun Sentinel in Florida who spoke with Potvin this evening, the move is nothing personal. The Panthers have decided to eliminate one of the radio positions and instead rotated Bill Lindsay from his radio position to the TV role previously filled by Potvin.

It was a joke - I understand that Islander fans get riled up easily these days, take it easy ;)

Potvin was good, but better than guys like Bobby Orr & Doug Harvey?
