The Panthers are rounding out the roster trading for Marty Reasoner who will be a fourth line center and a veteran presence to help usher in some of the young hopefuls. Contrary to some of the other teams, Tallon has alot of cap space to work with.
For the Hawks moving Reasoner for Jeff Taffe is an attempt to be able to fit Antti Niemi and Patrick Sharp under the cap. It will be fascinating to see if the Panthers can win while the newly acquired youth develops and gets ready for the big show… and it will be interesting to see if the Hawks can keep winning with their “new look” team.
