Florida Panthers fans, we know you're out there. We've heard about you. As a matter of fact, in 1996, it was like an infestation or something.

More to the point, we know you've had some great players to watch in your day. Pavel Bure, Roberto Luongo (twice!), Scott Mellanby, John Vanbiesbrouck, Ed Jovanovski, Stephen Weiss, Paul Laus, Olli Jokinen, Rob Niedermayer, Jay Bouwmeester, Peter Worrell. Not a bad list.

So show us you're all-in, no matter how lousy your team has been since, well, pretty much ever, and help us pick your favorite player in franchise history. Tell us who you feel is truly Mr. Panther. If one player could represent the Panthers in the Hockey Hall of Fame, which one would it be?

You can cast your ballot in three ways: in the comments section below, through our Facebook page or, if you're hitting us up from the Twitter, use the hashtag #ESPNplayerNHL.
