      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

(PTO) Kostitsyn to Panthers

26 posts in this topic

I'm thinking Florida has something in the works.

They already have 13 forwards signed for this season, not including Huberdeau.

Now they've signed 3 players to PTO's all in one day. Hmm.

Wouldn't have mind us signing him to a PTO, he has some issue's like Semin but he has great skills and I think our leadership core could keep him under control. Oh well not a big deal.

Seems to me Florida might have something in the works, perhaps Weiss coming here?

They have a few center's that are slotted in on wing spots, Fleischmann, Mattias, even Mueller. maybe they trade Weiss and move Fleischmann and Mueller to Center in the top 6. They also have Santorelli who scored 20 not that long ago so he is an offensive option aswell.

I could really see Weiss coming here to be honest.

Could Weise come here? we know booth and him played well together and when kesler come back it could be a deadly combo....? but it really depend if any of the panthers PTO players make the team or not

Shawn Matthias package?

Edit: Nevermind. He's injured, and so are a few other Panthers. That explains it.

If Florida gets rid of Weiss they are really putting a lot of faith in Huberdeau to inherit the duties of a first line pivot.

This might be nothing, or a lot of something. I don't see them planning on keeping these guys around long term though, so they must have hopes for prospects coming up soon if they trade away roster players.

Maybe it's tanking time for Florida.

They do have alot of really good young prospects in their system. Maybe they wanna add a few more.

I'm surprised no team has offered him an NHL contract if he is after one.

Apparently they reached out to him, but he isn't coming to camp:

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/florida-panthers/fl-florida-panthers-dale-tallon-0110-20130110,0,7501623.story

...

Tallon will bring 29 players into training camp (tentatively set for Sunday], including proven goal-scorers Alex Kovalev and Marek Svatos, to compete for the few spots that are open with the losses of Mikael Samuelsson, John Madden and Marco Sturm.

The final roster may be 21-23 man deep,depending on the injury status of Sean Bergenheim,Erik Gudbranson and Marcel Goc. Also, defenseman Dmitry Kulikov remains unsigned, although Tallon said he is speaking to the Russian's agent on a daily basis.

"We want him in our lineup and we'll do everything in our power to get [Kulikov] here,'' Tallon said.

Tallon said he also reached out to forward Andrei Kostitsyn, but the Slovak's agent didn't respond.

I can't see why a player of Kostitsyn's calibre would sign a PTO. Last year was "off" for him and he still put up 36 in 72. He is good for around 40-50 points and plays a bit of a power forward game, although an uninspired one. I would think he could get anywhere from 2.5 - 4 million on the open market.

No team would touch Kostitsyn with a ten foot pole after what he and Radulov did to the Predators. Florida's the only team desperate enough to try and sign him, and even they wouldn't offer him a full contract.

The guys a cancer, and not serious about winning.
