The injury-savaged Florida Panthers have to start thinking about next season. Two veteran forwards the Panthers will listen to offers for before April 3 are 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.
Fleischmann has two more years on his deal after this season, which pays him $4.5 million per. He also has a modified no-trade clause in which agent Rich Evans gave the Panthers last summer a list of teams he’d be willing to move to.
Versteeg has three more years on his deal after this season, which carries a $4.4 million cap hit but pays him a bit more in salary, $4.6 million next season and $4.7 million in each of the last two years.

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.

It is no secret that the the Florida Panthers are sellers in a major way, but one player with a large contract right now who may be surprisingly on the move is Brian Campbell. Campbell is viewed as a quarterback of sorts and is still one of the better transitional defensemen in the game with the ability to start rushes with laser precise passes to speedy forwards...
So it should...
Scott Timmins is making the most of his time in San Antonio, getting drunk, passing out on strangers' couches and getting arrested. Ouch.
SUNRISE, Fla. This was the game Anders Lindback and Jacob Markstrom mimicked during their street hockey games in Sweden.

Tuesday night was Lindback's turn, only the stakes were higher, as he bested Markstrom in their first meeting on NHL ice.
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.
John Madden was out in LA and he believes the curse is now broken, but I still would be a little worried, if I was a NFL player appearing on the cover.
