Panthers Transactions

In the 25 years since the Florida Panthers became a franchise, their 10 general managers have made a lot of trades. As an expansion team for the 1993-94 season, they made 16 trades in their first year alone. Some of these early trades made an impact as the team finished one point outside the playoffs in their inaugural season and reached the Stanley Cup Final in their third season. Like every team, the Panthers have a history of making successful and unsuccessful trades. In some instances, they were the clear victors by acquiring the most talented player. In others, they were on the losing side of the ledger, the result of either giving up a talented young player or by not receiving enough value relative to what they gave up. These are the best and worst trades in Panthers history and yes, Roberto Luongo appears on the list more than once. They are not ranked, but instead are organized in chronological order starting with the most recent deal. Trades Won by the...

Winnipeg Jets

In an NHL rumor rundown update, there was a lot to come out of the Saturday Headlines report with Chris Johnston and Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. The news includes updates on Dustin Byfulgien, Kasperi Kapanen, Jacob Markstrom, Chris Kreider and others. Dustin Byfuglien Not Likely to Play Elliotte Friedman noted that Dustin Byfuglien's playing future is getting clearer. Friedman said he's not skating yet and that while the news isn't 100%, "it does look like the most likely scenario is that he doesn't play this season and they revisit his future in the summer and see where everything stands at the particular point in time." Dustin Byfuglien (Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports) As for the Jets, if this is how this situation with Byfuglien gets finalized in the next few days, it would allow the Jets to do a few things at the deadline as it would free up a ton of cap space.
