The Panthers will introduce their new owners in a press conference on Friday at the BB&T Center according to multiple sources.

A Sun Sentinel source has confirmed that the principal owner will be New York businessman Vincent Viola, the CEO of Virtu Financial, along with his COO, Douglas Cifu, as per 640-AM host Andy Slater.

For fear of incrimination... I will say no further.

Also, saw lot's of activity while driving by the Germaine Arena today in anticipation of tomorrow's game. Love that place. An AHL-quality frame trapped in an ECHL placement.

If cost of travel ever declines I could see an AHL team being placed there along with Orlando being upgraded to an AHL team.

ESPN says Panthers purchased for $250 million!

http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/97...an-report-says

Isn't that about twice what Vinik paid for the Lightning?

They got robbed!

Edit: More than double what Vinik paid:
