Panthers continue shopping
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Florida Panthers are making calls and have been scouring the league looking for a trading partner or two as they continue to shop some of their veteran players.

Panthers GM Dale Tallon is open to moving some of his players as the team continues its rebuild.

However, the Panthers aren't believed to be selling some of their top forwards for draft picks and young prospects, they're in the market for young, NHL-proven talent.

It has been widely reported that the likes of forwards Kris Versteeg, Tomas Fleischmann, Scottie Upshall, Brad Boyes, Marcel Goc and Tomas Kopecky, and defensemen Dmitry Kulikov and Mike Weaver are up for grabs.

Goc, Boyes, Weaver and Kulikov are in the final year of their respective contracts, with Kulikov set to become a restricted free agent next summer and the other three players will become unrestricted free agents on July 1, 2014.

Tallon was reportedly in Montreal on Saturday for the Canadiens' 2-0 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

The Habs are looking for scoring depth up front, while the Sharks would like to bolster their blueline, though it's unclear if either team has had any talks with the Panthers lately.
