One of the players the Maple Leafs have been eying from afar over the past couple of seasons is defenceman Dmitri Kulikov of the Florida Panthers, and Kulikov might just be more available now than he was because of the wreckage of Florida’s early season play.
Brown had seven fights as an Oiler, if you’re keeping count, two with Jordin Tootoo, which brings up Tootoo.
There’s been some discussion that the Oilers should now take a run at Tootoo as a fourth-liner because he has some ability with the puck (he has 133 points and 49 career goals).
Kulikov to Leafs trade rumors eminated from Toronto Sun. So early for these rumors. Panthers are easy target bec of good young players.

If the Florida Panthers are moving veterans to cut payroll, and they consider Shawn Matthias a veteran of sorts, the Edmonton Oilers might be all over that. They’ve tried to get the six-foot-four, 220-pound centre before and were rebuffed.
Nonis said he hasn’t considered trading Jake Gardiner and doesn’t believe in trading young defencemen. “How many teams have made mistakes trading a young defencemen too soon?”
less than a month since Vincent Viola and Douglas Cifu took over the franchise — sources say the Panthers are prepared to move any of their veteran players.
