The Florida Panthers were awarded the first overall selection for this June’s NHL Entry Draft, winning the selection lottery on Tuesday night.

Florida owned the NHL's second worst record in 2013-14, compiling a 29-49-8 record while earning 62 points. The Panthers had an 18.8% chance at winning the top pick, pushing aside the league-worst Buffalo Sabres, who had a 25% chance at drawing the number one selection. GM Dale Tallon now has a lot of options going into the off-season, with around $30-million of spending money at his disposal and a choice between the top three prospects Sam Bennett, Aaron Ekblad and Sam Reinhart

Florida general manager Dale Tallon is confident that he can bring key players to the Panthers in the off-season partly because he acquired established goalie Roberto Luongo during the season.

With a top-end goalie like Luongo as a key selling point, Tallon is confident players will want to come south and help put the Panthers back on track. "You sell winning, the desire to win,’’ Tallon said. "We now have the ability to put the pieces together, and that’s what players want. . .I was denied for two years in Chicago. We were an Original Six team, great city. No one wanted to come because the perception was we didn’t want to win. That perception has gone away, and it has gone away here. We’re going to get guys who want to win.’’

Ed Jovanovski isn't sure if he'll be back next year to play out the final season of his contract.

"I'll sit down with [Tallon] in the next couple of week and look at next year," he said. "No one's pointing a gun to each other's head to make decisions right now. I have another year on my contract. I want to play. Can I is a different situation." He missed 41 games this season after a hip resurfacing procedure.

Florida GM Dale Tallon plans to be active this off-season.

"I'm disappointed in the year; I'm disappointed in a lot of things," he said. "I'm moving forward. We're going to fix it. We've got great support now from [owner] 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." He has a shopping list that includes two veteran NHL defensemen and a "sniper" for the club's forward group. There's also a chance that interim coach Peter Horachek will be brought back for next season.
