Week after week, Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon denied that his team would sell off center Stephen Weiss (and his expiring contract) and other assets before the trade deadline.Then Weiss suffered a season-ending wrist injury, the Panthers continued struggling and reality set in for the franchise. This season was just not to be. As the South Florida Sun-Sentinel notes, the Panthers have lost 95 man games to injuries.

Florida has the NHL’s worst penalty-killing unit. The team has lost six times in overtime, most in the league.Injuries eradicated last season’s top line of Weiss flanked by Kris Versteeg and Tomas Fleischmann. ...

I don’t think the Panthers are going to shop them, but if other teams call on them, they’ll listen.
Neither player, though, is a rental.
In a condensed NHL season where sellers might be tough to come by, the Florida Panthers are apparently willing to listen to "all offers" now that the team has fallen back in the playoff race.
The report, as seen in the Calgary Sun, mentions that the Panthers are willing to deal just about any player on the roster, excluding Jonathan Huberdeau, Erik Gudbranson, Jakob...
The Madden Curse is real, the question begs, does it just skip over a player from time to time? Calvin Johnson had a record breaking season, the Lions were terrible, but that is almost every year.
