Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
The injury-savaged Florida Panthers have to start thinking about next season. Two veteran forwards the Panthers will listen to offers for before April 3 are Kris Versteeg and Tomas Fleischmann.
I don’t think the Panthers are going to shop them, but if other teams call on them, they’ll listen.
Neither player, though, is a rental.
Fleischmann has two more years on his deal after this season, which pays him $4.5 million per. He also has a modified no-trade clause in which agent Rich Evans gave the Panthers last summer a list of teams he’d be willing to move to.
Versteeg has three more years on his deal after this season, which carries a $4.4 million cap hit but pays him a bit more in salary, $4.6 million next season and $4.7 million in each of the last two years.
