"Obviously it's very sad to see Kopecky leave, since he was a grea teamplayer who also wore the "A" in Florida sometimes, we want to wish him all the best in Calgary.

Since we are in a rebuild mode we are thrilled to add a young NHL-defenceman in TJ Brodie, who we think can be a top-4 D in the future. Blake Comeau is a bit of a gamle, but we remember his breakout season (24G, 22A) in Islanders a few years ago and he is still fairly young. In addition to those players we also added a longshot prospect in Johnny Gaudreau (4th round pick in 2011). Johnny is a small winger, but with a high upside if he reach his potential.

Panthers GM are very happy with the smooth negotiations with Calgary and we wish them all the best in the future!
