Dale Tallon insists there will be no fire sale as trade deadline approaches
With the NHL’s trade deadline less than a week away, the Panthers could undergo another massive roster overhaul.
For a team miles out of a playoff spot, that may not be a bad thing.
Yet general manager Dale Tallon hasn’t given off the vibe of someone planning a major fire sale.
Do the Panthers have some assets available for the right price? Sure. Will the Panthers have a complete veteran purge? Probably not.
“We’re going to do what’s best for the Panthers to build a championship team,” Tallon said during the recent Olympic break. “We’re not blowing this thing up. If we can sell some assets to get better, we’ll do that. It depends what happens in the next few weeks. We’ll be aggressive either way.”
Although Tallon and and the Panthers have moved NHL players for prospects and draft picks in the past, they may not do that as much as in years past despite a similar spot in the standings.
