Despite being demoted to the AHL, Mike Santorelli is still regarded favorably by Panthers' coach Kevin Dineen.
Santorelli had been a healthy scratch for half of Florida's games this season and with the return of Marcel Goc Thursday was the odd man out and sent to San Antonio. "I believe Santo is a top six player and his skill set is as a higher-end skilled forward,'' Dineen said. "Right now we don't have that fit for him. So he needs to either diversify his game or get a major dose of confidence. I hope some time in the American League will give him that jolt of ice time he needs to turn things around.'' The Cats' can remain hopeful, you don't have to. Cut him if he is still on your fantasy squad.
