Will the Panthers make any moves?

It's early in the season, but the Panthers are 3-4 in a division that's all of a sudden become very HOT!

With all the holdouts and FA still available, will we see Florida pick anyone up? Patrick Stefan is on the block in Hotlanta, Gaborik is still a holdout in Minn, as is Comrie, and a savvy veteran like Ronning is still unsigned. IMO our first rounder this year (and whatever else it wook) would be worth trading for a bona fide star player like Gabs. It would also help the Cats lack of scoring...

Our 2nd line center spot is still unstable. Keenan can keep switching Kozzie down there at the expense of his chemistry with Olli, but it has been sparking things lately for both players. Cullen is out with injury if not out permanently b/c he just can't solidify that spot. Nedorost is still recovering from surgery and it's unascertainable when he'll be 100% and ready for that spot.

So basically maybe a guy like Ronning could fill in for a year to add some stability, or the Panthers could trade for a guy like Stefan (hey, they traded Majesky to their division rival right?), who is still a young developing talent. (It could be a future of Horton-Stefan down the middle with Jokinen and Nedorost playing the wings.)

Feel free to suggest any moves you'd like to see or not see!
