Keep Ya Head Up Son! Guillaume Lepine Re-signs

Happy, happy, happy. Joy, joy, joy. News reaches TCW this evening from the Panthers Supporters Club AGM that Defenceman Guillaume Lepine has re-signed for the club for the 2011/12 season.
This has come as a real shot in the arm for the Panthers as it has been widely rumoured that Lepine would be moving back to North America to continue his career. North America’s loss is once again our gain.
Lepine quickly became a cult hero at Panthers. Not only is he a solid, reliable, stay at home D-man but he can also fight (he didn’t lose one at all last season) and he can hit like a freight train. Sadly, the latter got him some quite ludicrous bans from officials and league committee’s who quite frankly do not have a clue, however that is water under the bridge (although I’ll bet that Rob Globke doesn’t skate with his head down any more)! When it was rumoured that he may not return some fans said that he’d be ‘easy’ to replace. I disagree, how many defenceman have we had that can do their job as well as hit and enforce/fight when needed? The answer is not many, only Mike Rees comes to mind in recent times.
For me a great re-signing, I’m very, very happy.

*It was also announced at the AGM that Dan Green will be returning as Panthers back-up netminder for next season.
