David Booth is untouchable according to new separate reports
Horton says the players are trying to put the trade stuff behind them. Word is, only a handful of players are untouchable with the Panthers right now – and Horton isn't one of them.
The players believed to be off limits for trade talk are young players like Dmitry Kulikov, Michael Frolik, David Booth and that's about it.
That doesn't mean a whole lot of players will be moved between Monday and Wednesday's trade deadline. A few will, for sure. But I would think some of the Panthers big moves – if there are any – would wait until the draft when you can get a much better return for your money since no one is in the middle of a playoff run during June.
GM Randy Sexton said last night no player is off limits, but I think David Booth, Michael Frolik and Dmitry Kulikov are safe. I absolutely don’t see any of those players being traded.
Nathan Horton probably not, either, especially considering Sexton said last night no trade would be as big as getting Nathan Horton back. Maybe Stephen Weiss? But this team is already so thin on centers and he’s one of Coach Pete DeBoer’s boys from their days together in juniors.
Horton is still not skating because of pain in his leg(recovering from broken foot).
A deal centered around Dubinsky and Girardi for a package involving Weiss,one of their group III D(Seidenberg or Leopold)and another asset. Weiss is still a young player who turns 27 this April. Signed to an affordable deal with $3.1 million cap hit until 2013.
Florida has some ugly ass contracts on that team. The Rangers can't afford them without sending back their problems.
