Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said Tuesday he expects to be active heading toward the NHL Trade Deadline, as much to give some prospects NHL playing time as to help the Panthers reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season.
"You know we have a lot of good young players in the minors that we'd like to get some action to after the deadline (March 2)," Tallon told the Sun-Sentinel. "It depends on what other teams are looking for and what they want to do and how it helps our chances not only this year but down the road."
Sean Bergenheim reportedly has requested a trade, and Tallon said he will try to accommodate him. The Sun-Sentinel also mentioned Scottie Upshall, Tomas Fleischmann and Tomas Kopecky as possibilities to be traded. The four forwards can become unrestricted free agents after this season.
