They do have Petrovic coming in soon who is similar in style to Gubranson. I also thought I heard the Panthers were trying to trade Weiss.

Getting Staal allows them to plug Staal in on the first line, have Weiss on the 2nd line and bring Huberdeau along as 3C.

Weiss is an UFA next year and Huberdeau moves up to 2C and Bjugstad is groomed for 3C.
