Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun writes … When Dale Tallon was thinking of trading the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft and moving back, the player the Florida GM wanted to select was William Nylander
Tallon still talking trade of young defensemen for veteran d-man or scorer. Sounds like Robak and Petro are on the block. #FlaPanthers

Dale Tallon is telling gm's he has 1 really good offer for 1st pick overall. Not sure he's going to take it. Other so-so offers as well.

#FlaPanthers Tallon on #1 pick: I've had one concrete offer. It was a fair offer. But I may as well wait until the end and see what happens

Brian Campbell's no-trade clause stipulates he picks eight teams he'll allow himself to go to. So he's got a lot of pull.

Ben Kuzma wonders if the Canucks could try to package Jason Garrison and the 6th overall pick as part of a deal with Florida to move up in the draft.

only guessing here, but trade. – @MattsMusings1: Do you think the winger DT is after will be traded for or signed in FA?”

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.
Brad Boyes leads Florida with 14 goals. He will be an unrestricted free agent at year’s end. The Panthers are 8 points outside of the final playoff spot.
The trade rumours have also come with suggestions that Kulikov might be about to jump to the KHL; the option there (if the Oilers are interested) would be to try and negotiate an extension before acquiring his rights (note: I’m not a lawyer but as I read the CBA, Kulikov can talk about an extension prior to January 1 because he’s currently on a two-year contract). Given the Oilers needs on defence and the number of Russians MacTavish has brought in, Edmonton might be an attractive option for the young rearguard.
Interesting name potentially in play is Shawn Matthias in Florida. If Leafs looking to change forward mix, he's big and can play centre.
