-- If you're a general manager interested in acquiring any player in the Florida Panthers
organization, don't hesitate to call because GM Dale Tallon
is willing to listen.
Tallon, who figures to be a busy man between now and the Feb. 28 trade deadline, told NHL.com Friday that no Panther is untouchable -- not even prized goalie prospect Jacob Markstrom
"It depends on the deal, but I doubt that's going to happen," Tallon said of Markstrom.
He's probably right on that one. Tallon would have to be blown away by an offer to consider trading Markstrom, who is considered the Panthers' cornerstone goalie of the future, but he'll listen anyway.
"Yeah, why not?" Tallon said. "This team hasn't done anything in 10 years, so why wouldn't I? It's not like we're a championship team. We've got to get better in every area."
