Normally I would of agreed with you 100% on this, but given the circumstances I'm not sure theres a lot they could of done given that theres a very real possibility that the season might not happen at all.
Despite what I'm currently reading online from Shuff fans lapping this news up, Herr was clearly the most dominant player in the league last year, so it was always going to be a tough ask to keep him without the uncertainty of covid.
Speaking of shuff fans, I can't wait for the first of their 'signings' to duck out of their contract once a bigger European team dangles a guaranteed contract as the idea of a full EIHL season becomes untenable!
Given signings BY OTHER TEAMS so far this off season I cant also help think if he had been a player in one of the teams above us his signature would have been a priority and captured regardless of the cost. Imho this really does feel yet again penny pinching on panthers side with an ideal excuse with the virus not to go all out.
Who knows the season may well not go ahead and all these signings could well be smoke and mirrors but it does make you wonder that the richest club in the country i.e. the one that is likely to make to most money has done sod all so far to spend it...
Given panthers history I think people are giving them the benefit of the doubt without a shred of evidence that anything has changed in Black towers. It was said the off season will show how committed panthers are to success over profit with signings such as Herr being a priority to challenge for any success, so far they have distinctly failed...
