The Jokinen-less Panthers, meanwhile, are the ones wandering the desert. After 14 games, the Panthers had only one player defenseman Keith Ballard, acquired with Nick Boynton in the Jokinen trade among the top 100 in points scored in the NHL. Its worth debating whether the Panthers would know how to score at all if David Booth (he of the Boooooooth! cheer from the arena rafters) werent slapping the biscuit into the basket once every other game. Watch the Panthers feel around for the puck against the Carolina Hurricanes at 7:30 p.m. on Monday at the BankAtlantic Center (2555 Panthers Parkway, Sunrise). Tickets start at $17.
