Gord Murphy Signed Index Card

A few weeks ago, I posted about Gord Murphy, a very under-rated, top pair offensive defenseman of the late 80s/mid-90s, mentioning that in the same mailing he'd signed four cards for me, but also an index card, which I'd misplaced.

I have found it and put it in my 4x6 album:
Unfortunately for him, his Florida Panthers are now dead-last in the Eastern Conference, due mostly to injuries - their best forward, Stephen Weiss, leading scorer Kris Versteeg, and #1 goalie, José Theodore, are both gone for the remainder of the season - but also sub-par play from a few key veterans.

On the bright side, rookies Jonathan Huberdeau and Drew Shore have already staked a claim as leaders of the organization, so the future looks bright, especially considering Dmitry Kulikov, T.J. Brennan and Colby Robak on defense, Jacob Markstrom in nets, and the fact that neither Jack Skille, Peter Mueller nor Shawn Matthias are over 25 on offense. You can definitely build around those players.

Still, you have to hope the Panthers don't remain in the newly-realigned Northeast division for too long, sharing it with the likes of the Boston Bruins, Montréal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings, Ottawa Senators and Tampa Bay Lightning (as well as bottom-feeders Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs).
