Today’s music selection is Starting Over by John Lennon. Very nice job Dale!
I must give credit and full marks to Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon. While some of the moves weren’t popular yesterday, he realizes that this isn’t a popularity contest. Sometimes you have to back up the truck and empty it out. The biggest thing that was accomplished yesterday was the salary dumping that allowed us to accumulate draft picks and be aggressive in the upcoming Free Agent bonanza.
The coolest thing about yesterday was I got a phone call from Little Miss Rat Trick. Normally unless it’s an emergency, when she’s in school this doesn’t happen. Her first words were, ” Daddy, who are these people”? In my most calming voice I said, “don’t worry, things will be fine. Dale has it under control”. Let’s move forward Panther fans, this will be brighter. This had to be done.
