Biggest Gain: Brian Campbell

Brian Campbell assisted on both Panther goals against the Flyers, giving him 45 assists for the season, tying his career high (with a single team). He also blocked seven shots, reaching the century mark for the second season in a row with 105 (101 last year).

Biggest Loss: Keaton Ellerby

With Dmitry Kulikov back, it's time for one of the defensemen to sit. And since Ellerby drew the short straw and wasn't drafted 3rd overall he gets to sit the pressbox. Quick, guess who still has the team's two worst plus-minus.

The answer, it doesn't matter because he's the future and the other guy was signed to mentor him.
