09:48 PM ET 11.19 | The Florida Panthers recently traded Kris Versteeg to the Chicago Blackhawks, and the fire sale that many thought would come weeks ago appears to be coming to fruition. According to reports, the Panthers continue to field calls on defenseman Dmitry Kulikov, who is in the final year of his current contract and will be a restricted free agent this summer. In return for the promising yet under-performing defender, the Panthers appear to be looking for young assets. Which is odd since Kulikov is a young asset himself. Rebuilding teams are typically reluctant to move potentially outstanding players on the blue line, but all the bets seem to be off for Florida.

Kulikov is 23 and the Panthers are looking to trade him for young assets. That's hilarious, 23 just became the new 33.

They don't need to get younger. They already are a wet-behind-the-ears bunch. They need to get better.

More importantly, when's the estimated relocation date for this franchise?

When Quebec City is done putting the final touches to a new arena.

Hang in there.
