Tallon: Panthers may seek ‘something just to give us a spark’ via trade

With only nine days until the March 1 NHL trade deadline though, what is the mindset of this team?

“If we have a good week, we’re going to probably maintain and look and see what’s available,” said president of hockey operations Dale Tallon during a Monday afternoon appearance on Toronto’s Sportsnet 590. “We’re not going to give up much off our roster to chase something. We do have some picks and prospects, but we’re not going to see many changes on our roster.

“So if it’s a deal there that’s a short-term kind of quick fix thing, we might look at that as well. But obviously we prefer to be buying. I think that’s what’s going to happen.

Brian Campbell’s future could hinge on how Florida Panthers finish this season

Even though it has been over five years since Brian Campbell joined the Panthers, he never really left Chicago.

Now in the final year of the eight-year, $57 million contract Campbell originally signed with the Blackhawks, some wonder if he’ll eventually return to play in Chicago — perhaps as early as next season.

More moves likely in Florida

Tallon suggested there might be more personnel moves as the Panthers remain in the chase for a Stanley Cup playoff berth.
