More Panthers News!

"There's lots of interest," Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson told the Dispatch. "I'm taking as many calls as I'm making right now."
According to the paper, San Jose, Ottawa, Florida and Montreal are interested in one of the Blue Jackets' first two picks.
Howson indicated the only way he trades the sixth overall pick is if the Blue Jackets acquired a first-line center or a top-two defenseman.
Sources tell TFP the Blue Jackets remain interested in Sharks captain Patrick Marleau, while they are supposedly offering the sixth pick and Nikolai Zherdev to the Panthers for Olli Jokinen.

Interesting news. Zherdev is a career underacheiver, but the sixth pick means big things for our farm team. We have one of the worst minor league prospect systems in the league after this next wave of prospects comes up. After Matthias, Frolik, Repik and Ellerby, things are pretty bone dry. Maybe Nik would reach his potential here, but that sixth pick would be huge.

Am I crazy, or are teams that have missed the playoffs several years in a row supposed to have deep farm teams?

Has it been bad scouting?

Imber said...

That's how Pittsburgh did it Adam. Stupid scouting and stupid trades here.

All I have to say is:

Anthony Stewart 1st round bust
Kenndall McArdel lst round mystery man.

Kreps and Olesz: Both guys could be good but it might take some time or never happen.
