‘Slim’ chance Panthers trade for Bobrovsky before deadline

The Score

The Florida Panthers' chances of trading for Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky before the Feb. 25 deadline are "slim," a source told The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

The Panthers did inquire about the netminder, but the asking price was too high considering Bobrovsky is a pending unrestricted free agent and could be acquired without losing assets, LeBrun added.

On Monday, it was reported that the Panthers were interested in trading for Bobrovksy and were enticing him with an eight-year extension. If Bobrovsky waits until July 1 to sign a contract, he can only receive a maximum of seven years.
