PANTHERS ONLY TEAM ACTIVE EARLY
First it was Radek Dvorak to the Thrashers for Nicklas Bergfors and Patrik Rissmiller.
Then it was Dennis Wideman to Washington for Jake Hauswirth and a third round pick.
Considering Wideman was the key piece in the trade for Nathan Horton last summer, it makes one wonder what the heck Dale Tallon was thinking.
Either way, he's the only one doing anything right now.
The Flyers, as expected, have been quiet.
They are looking for a cheap, veteran, depth winger, but won't break up the roster to get one.
There was a lot of speculation that they were trying to get Marty Reasoner from Florida (does everyone have Tallon on speed dial today?) But I was told a little bit ago that Reasoner not only won't be traded but is likely the next captain for the Panthers.
Meanwhile, here at practice, Nick Boynton has made his first appearance and was playing physical, burying James van Riemsdyk on one drill.
Blair Betts and Chris Pronger also practicing.
Stay tuned for more...
