As we approach the June 27 NHL draft, it appears the Florida Panthers are taking phone calls about the No. 1 overall pick.
From Damian Cox’s latest column: “As far as the draft, Tallon said he has received one ‘fair offer’ for the first pick overall, which he has made clear is available for trade.”
Like the Houston Texans in the NFL, the Panthers have made it public that they are interested in hearing what the rest of the league has to offer.
Tallon has not been shy about what he wants in a deal, saying he would like a top pair defenseman.
Which teams could be interested in making such a deal? The Vancouver Canucks have been rumored to be interested in getting from the No. 6 overall to the top pick.
