The Florida Panthers came into Monday atop the NHL standings but with the trade deadline now a week away, how are they looking to improve?
This will be general manager Bill Zito’s first NHL deadline running his own team although he is not going in alone.
As was the case when Dale Tallon was running things, he will lean on his scouts and trusted confidants within the front office in scouring the league for players they think will improve the roster.
Based on how the Panthers have been playing this year, they don’t need much.
But, as the saying goes, one can always improve themselves.
Zito will try and do so in the coming days.
