The Florida Panthers® caused quite a stir during the 1996 Stanley Cup® Playoffs, when they took a third place Atlantic Division finish all the way to the Stanley Cup Final®, where they lost to the Colorado Avalanche® in a sweep. It was their third season in the league, but it proved the idea that there’s such a thing as peaking early, because they’ve only made the Stanley Cup® Playoffs four times since then, losing in the first round each time.
Of course, that makes them a great project for a Franchise Hockey Manager 4 sim, especially one that’s streamed on our Twitch channel. That endeavor proved another idea — great minds think alike — because our FHM 4 Twitch streamers, Adam and Jeff, had narrowed down the options for their next streaming project to the Panthers®, and the team won a Twitter poll too, which sealed the deal.
So how have they done so far?
