Panthers earning Hoffman and Huberdeau accessible?
Chris Nichols of Nichols on Hockey: Elliotte Friedman was on Sportsnet 650 speaking about the Florida Panthers looking to clear income cap room to get a run at Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky this offseason. Could forward Mike Hoffman and/or Jonathan Huberdeau possibly be concerned somehow?
Friedman believes that Hoffman is accessible for any crew looking for scoring. He has a year still left at $5.5 million.
“The Huberdeau a single is intriguing. That came out I guess in the last 24 hours. I have experienced persons tell me that there is no way that Florida is working Huberdeau, and I have experienced other persons tell me that they’ve listened to quietly Florida is at minimum looking at it. So I don’t know what to say.
“I just can’t imagine they would trade Huberdeau, who’s on a excellent contract, until the return was unbelievable.”
Tom Gulitti of NHL.com: The Florida Panthers will probable be sellers just before the deadline.

“We don’t know if it is genuine,” said Huberdeau, who has 52 details (13 objectives, 39 assists) in 55 video games this period. “I’m just heading to enjoy right here for now. We’re making an attempt to make a press for the playoffs and I am heading to do all the things I can. We’ll see what occurs. You can’t do anything at all about it, just enjoy hockey. Just enjoy the activity.”
