The Florida Panthers are ready to start dealing some of their veteran players. That's according to a report from the Ottawa Sun which indicates the new owners in Florida are prepared to make some moves less than a month after they took control of the franchise.  It seems awfully early to be waving the white flag considering the Panthers have played just nine games and are 3-6-0 to start 2013-14, but it's believed that several veterans (Scottie Upshall, Kris Versteeg, Brad Boyes, Tomas Fleischmann and others) are on the trading block.  New owners.

Garrioch: Panthers plan on off-shoring veteran assets

Dan Spiegel: Dineen Calls Out Bergenheim

While head coach Kevin Dineen has done his best to be diplomatic about the injury situation regarding Sean Bergenheim, his patience is wearing thin with the valuable winger.

Promotions, Promotions And A Hockey Game Too

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond, The Florida Panthers being hockey's first team to host a night for the LGBT community on Saturday has been well publicized.  A secondary promotion held by the team has not been.
