Andrighetto waiting on the Avalanche
He has an offer from Avangard Omsk of the KHL to play for Bob Hartley.
Florida Panthers have a goaltender to move
It hasn’t really worked out well in Florida and they plan on going after goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky in free agency.
Could be a fit in Calgary.
George Richards: With the way James Riemer’s contract is structured, he would have a $3.2 million salary cap hit during the second season, so shouldn’t expect a buyout. The Panthers are trying to find a trade.
James Mirtle: Not sure if there would be a fit with the Toronto Maple Leafs since even if the Panthers retained 50 percent of his salary, his cap hit would still be $1.7 million.
With the news that the Leafs are shopping Sparks today, it may be worth a look.

Panthers not into the Blue Jackets asking price
Had been wondering if this would help get a sign-and-trade done but so far it hasn’t.
Pierre LeBrun: Have been getting the sense that the Florida Panthers are not interested in sending a 2nd round pick to do so in a sign-and-trade for either Panarin or Bobrovsky. The cost is too high.
On the other side, the Blue Jackets aren’t just going to give away their rights for a low draft pick either.
