The Florida Panthers had a hell of a season in 2021-22. They were, from start to finish, one of the most dominant teams on the Bettman Tour.
The proof is that they finished the year in first place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 58 wins, 18 losses and 6 losses in extra time.
But the team led by Andrew Brunette proved completely helpless in the second round of the playoffs against their Florida rivals, the Lightning, and was eliminated in four short games.
That said, now is the time to make decisions on the side of the Panthers. And one of them concerns the team’s number one goalkeeper, Sergei Bobrovsky.
Nick Kypreos, a former NHL player who now works in the media, said the Panthers were really excited to swap the Russian goalkeeper. Bill Zito, chief executive of the team, would even be ready to withhold 50% of his salary to free up space on the payroll.

Bobrovsky currently earns $ 10 million a season and his contract expires in three years, after the 2024-2025 season. So we understand that the Panthers, withholding 50% of his salary, are really looking for a dance partner to trade him.
However, the main stakeholder hasn’t been bad this season … But, with the salary cap and other players in the process of signing up, it may be time for the team to pick Spencer Knight in the first round, the team a few years ago. .
The CapFriendly website reports that the Panthers currently have around three million players, but they will have to make some signings in the coming months like any other team in the league.
Because we agree, 10 million on a paycheck is huge. Even 5 is a lot. It makes a big difference at the end of the day.
This file will be one of many to follow this summer, when we may be entitled to a lot of action in the NHL. And I think I can say with enormous certainty that I’m not the only one who can’t wait.
Happy Father’s Day to dads of all genders!
