4th Offensive Leading Scorer: Radim Vrbata
Radim Vrbata will be counted on by the entire Panthers organization to produce offensively this year. With a lackluster Arizona Coyotes team last year, Vrbata put up 20 goals to go along with 35 assists. Vrbata has continuously put up great numbers his entire career and should continue to do the same here in Florida.
Radim will most likely find himself on the second line with Trocheck and a highly talented prospect. If he and Trocheck can find chemistry from the start of the year, they should make quite the duo. Another factor that might contribute to Vrbata playing well next year is that he is on a one year contract. If he plays well throughout the year, and the Panthers are not contenders for the playoffs next year, he could find himself on a Stanley Cup contender at the trade deadline. All things point to Vrbata having a great year.
Prediction: 25 goals, 21 assists and 46 points.
