For the last few seasons now, the goaltending concerns have failed to be addressed. Roberto Luongo and James Reimer have been the Florida Panthers’ tandem for three years and neither of them has been able to get the team over the hump.
The usual concerns are that Luongo is frequently injured, out for an extensive amount of time while Reimer is either hurt or just playing inconsistently.
This had led to the Panthers having no real goaltender to truly rely on throughout the course of a season. Sure, they’ve had Harri Sateri and even Sam Montembeault to lean on at certain times, but none of them played to the extent as the aforementioned two.
