Now that the expansion and entry drafts are complete, most of the NHL offseason is over. Now, it’s time for the fun. On Wednesday at noon, the free agency market opens. Who could the Florida Panthers be looking at?
On Saturday afternoon, the Panthers officially completed a trade with the Buffalo Sabres in which they got a consistent 20-goal scorer in Sam Reinhart for a lottery-protected 2022 first round picks and goalie prospect Devon Levi.
With all the business GM Bill Zito has to handle in house, Reinhart may just be the biggest offseason acquisition Florida makes.
And if Zito takes care of what he has on his plate, this offseason would have to be considered a success.
