It is confirmed, FLA has Bradley on unconditional waivers because the Panthers intend to buy him out.
I didn't see that coming. Santo should be traded instead of just putting him through waivers, but one has to assume Tallon tried to do just that and found just about no interest. He needs a major change of scenery.

Maybe they are clearing room for Huberdeau and Howden?
Huby definitely has a spot on the team already, all he has to do is not blow it in training camp. Howden is a possibility yes. Although we had to move some forwards anyway unless we wanted to roll with the same lineup as last season. We had a ton of forwards. I expect at least one forward brought in through free agency.

Santorelli is terrible. I hope he's picked up on re-entry, doubt it though. Don't let the fact he scored 20 goals 2 years ago fool you. He was a healthy scratch in many games last season, including the playoffs. He's a perimeter player who does absolutely nothing in most games.

He is. We have a ton of forwards though and he just didn't fill any role here.
