"I'm disappointed in the year," Tallon said. "I'm disappointed in a lot of things. I'm moving forward. We're going to fix it. We've got great support now from Vinnie Viola and we're going to move forward and add the pieces to help these kids get to the level that we need to get them to."
The Panthers are expected to have about $30 million in cap space this summer, and Tallon said he's been given the go-ahead by new owner Vinnie Viola to spend money.
