Florida Hockey Now wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, and good luck on Black Friday. General managers around the NHL may be doing some trade shopping as well.

The Florida Panthers, sitting atop the NHL standings, will be a buyer when the trade deadline approaches following the Olympics.

Florida GM Bill Zito will be careful on who he adds to what looks like a very close room.

Still, the Panthers will be looking to improve their lot.

With (American) Thanksgiving upon us, will the NHL trade market start to pick up?

It’s hard to believe that the Vancouver Canucks would consider trading the player they took 23rd overall at the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, but word on the street is Boeser’s name has been out there since the summer.
