Games Played
League – 13

Goals: 2 / Assists: 4 / PIMs: 2

Paul Balm
This, apparently, was what the right fit looked like. Signed on deadline day in a move that smacked of desperation he came in and although he clearly wasn’t really good enough for this league he gave it his all every night. His line alongside Lacho and Betteridge was one of the better ones in the run up until the end of the season until it was, inevitably broken up as he was dropped for the play-offs.

Jono Bullard
100% effort and looked quite skilful but the brutal truth is he wasn’t good enough for Panthers and we should be signing much better quality imports.

Andy Haywood
Didn’t see too much of Sarkanis but what I did see was a young hardworking forward, but one that wasn’t good enough for the team.

Antoine Marie-Jeanne
Struggled to adapt to the game in the UK but has shown flashes of potential. Still young at 22, I wouldn’t be sad to see him return next season as a squad player.

Adam Reddish
A late-season arrival which, and no reflection on the individual, looked to be a cheap and desperate measure on the part of the club. His pedigree suggested that any impact would be limited and this proved to be the case. Added speed to the third line which made it a greater threat, but was always going to be the spare import to sit when our full quota was back fit. Doubt he’ll be back in Nottingham next season.

Tina Taylor
Had a little of the ‘rabbit in the headlights’ look about him when he first arrived but I liked his potential. Found his feet after his initial wobble and to be fair we badly needed a body when he arrived, the accord he struck with Betteridge was an interesting one and perhaps if he’d been with us at the beginning of the season that could have flourished but unless the Panthers want to take a chance on him (or he wants to have a full season with us) then we’ll never know.
