UFA Artemi Panarin has begun his interview tour. He’ll speak with the New York Islanders, New York Rangers, and Florida Panthers. What are the pros and cons of signing with either team?

Unrestricted free agent Artemi Panarin is said to be choosing between the New York Islanders, New York Rangers, and the Florida Panthers as his next destination.

To get a sense of what Artemi Panarin might be thinking as he makes a decision leading up to July 1, I thought it would be interesting to look at what factors are going into his decision.

What could entice him to play for the Florida Panthers instead of the New York Islanders? And what would possibly turn him off from playing there?

Or better yet, why should Artemi Panarin choose the New York Islanders over the New York Rangers?

Artemi Panarin has a tough decision to make on what team to choose. So I thought it would be fun to think of things from his perspective when considering all three options.
