Panthers have now come to agreements with all restricted free agents except for winger Jimmy Hayes. Florida signed center Brandon Pirri to a two-year deal earlier this week.

With Florida overstocked at the center position and in desperate need of goal scorers, the position most likely to see a great shift is wing. The Panthers have several options to fill the need.

The Florida Panthers' goalie, traded back to his adopted home by the Vancouver Canucks two weeks ago, was ordinary on Sunday, which was still better than either team has been this season.
