5. Pavel Bure
Pavel Bure may not be ranked #1 on this list of all-time Florida Panthers but there is a case to be made for him isn’t there?

In the three and a half seasons that Bure spent with Florida he has the most trophies accumulated with two Rocket Richard Trophies and two Second Team All Star nods.  Bure is a 1.13 PPG player for Florida (actually higher than he totaled with any other NHL team) and led his team in scoring three times, even though on the third one he was traded late into the season. 

While his stay in Florida was relatively brief, he actually achieved his best individual achievements as a Panther.
