2. Robert Svehla
Playing for the Florida Panthers for 8 of his 9 NHL seasons, blueliner, Robert Svehla is as of this writing without question the greatest Defenseman in Panthers history.  The Slovakian star would represent Florida in the 1997 All Star Game and had four seasons where he would exceed 40 Points.  He was also a large reason why Florida would make the Stanley Cup Finals in the 1995/96 Season.
