Panthers really desperate for wingers, third PTO to a winger. Huberdeau perhaps to stick with the Panthers after training camp then? Anywho here's a few stories:

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.

what is with panthers and PTO!

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.

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.

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.

Luongo for Huberdeau? :bigblush:

All jokes aside. I think this is a solid move by the Panthers, as Kostitsyn would be Florida's only legit 2nd line winger.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I dont think they will want to tank again.

They made it back to the playoffs first time since '96. And weren't too far off from knocking off the New Jersey Devils who in turn eventually became the Stanley Cup runner ups.

I think Dale Tallon wont tank after one pretty good year. He will more likely want to build upon that and trading his first line center isn't a great way to start it. He will more likely build his core around Weiss, Versteeg, Fleischmann, Gudbranson and Kulikov. Add Huberdeau to the mix.

If they trade Weiss, they'll be getting solid value back. If it's Luongo coming back, they will still have a chance to make the playoffs. Luongo can put that team on his back.

I'm surprised as well. The guy can play. I know he has his issues, but in the end those always get swept to the side for a guy of Kostitsyn hockey calibre.

Kostitsyn can be awesome. Sucks we didn't offer him a PTO ourselves.

Apparently they reached out to him, but he isn't coming to camp:
http://www.sun-senti...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.

OT, but Kostitsyn potentially being the only real 2nd line winger for them, reminded me of our second line winger, Mason Raymond. Now that's a scary thought, for real. Raymond is a good, speedy winger. But except with the CBJ, he shouldn't be considered a real 2nd line winger at all.

Anyways, for what he did last year with the press, no wonder no-one gave him a good contract offer. He probably got a number of proposals during the summer and even this weekend, but small in numbers cause of what happened last spring.

This seems like the best idea in terms of their long term ability to win (follow the Edmonton model) but I think DT has pressure to win now, especially the year after a lockout. If the team has any hope of staying in Florida it has to win this year and draw back fans, so even if it is detrimental to future rebuilding it has to focus on 2013 for financial reasons.
On a related note, I do see the potential return of Luongo (I'm guessing a Florida fan favourite, if not just a familiar name to casual hockey fans in town) as a way to draw back fans, as well.
