Panthers have Brassard’s list but not a guarantee that he’s traded
Brassard has submitted a list of 10 teams that he would not accept a trade to.
“I just don’t really know what is happening,” Brassard said Friday after practice.
It’s possible that the Panthers don’t trade him before the deadline.
“We are being honest with him,” Boughner said before the game Saturday. “I just spoke to him a few minutes ago, and it’s a situation where we need to be fair to him as well as be fair to ourselves. It’s the right thing to do. There is definitely interest in Derick out there, and I think in talking to Dale, we are just not going to give him away. If a team does not make a great offer, we are more than happy to keep him here.”
Defenseman Mark Pysyk is available and he has a year left.
“We are going to do what I always say: Do what is best for the long-term health of the Florida Panthers,” Tallon said. “We have some good players, we will see if we can tweak things a little bit and keep getting better.”
