In their mad dash to the cap floor, the Panthers don't seem to care who they're actually signing. Ed Jovanovski, about to enter his 17th NHL season, got a four-year, $16.5-million deal from Florida, the team that selected him No. 1 overall in 1994.
If Jovanovski, 35, plays more than two years of this deal, I'd be shocked. Then again, I never thought Jaromir Jagr would get $3.3-million at age 39.
