Also known in steadily decreasing amounts around the interwebs as "Whale4ever", I'm the founder and managing editor of LitterBoxCats.com - SB Nation's home for the Florida Panthers since 2008. Been a NE/HFD Whalers fan stretching back to 1978, followed by several stops in South Florida thanks to an inherited status as a proud "Pratt Baby" (you know who you are), leading to a longtime love for the Cats which reaches to their birth in early 1993.

The team is, I think, starting to understand that everyone must work and everyone has to be absolutely committed to excellence. We're not going to tolerate anything but 100 percent dedication to the culture of the team first.

The biggest lesson is less is more. A young defenseman has the tendency to do a little bit extra and it backfires. Get the puck moving, make your first pass, get it out of the zone and let someone else worry about what happens next. He'll come out of it. He's too good a player.
