Panthers more likely to make a trade than an UFA signing

 

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.

Boyes on the move?

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.

Could struggling Florida Panthers, Edmonton Oilers come together on a trade?

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.
