Free Agent Focus: Erik Haula



Florida Panthers free agents

An already interesting Florida Panthers offseason is about to head into its most active stretch. 

The NHL’s free agency period opens Oct. 9 at noon and according  to, the Panthers have 12 NHLers currently under contract. 

That leaves a lot of work — and some big decisions — for new GM Bill Zito. 

With an estimated cap hit of roughly $59.8 million for next season’s Panthers — and with the NHL salary capped at $81.5 million — Florida has close to $22 million to work even after factoring in retained money, buyouts and Roberto Luongo’s early retirement recapture penalty.
