LBC's 2015 Florida Panthers & NHL UFA Day Open Thread

Not much movement expected from Sunrise on the opening of free agency but did YOU see the Brad Boyes buyout coming? Neither did we. Anything goes on July 1st...

Welcome to all as we set sail on another summer offseason of free agent signings (maybe) and perhaps a couple of trades to keep the fanbase awake until September. And perhaps build a better on-ice squad, too.

If you've been with us for any of our past six "UFA Day" threads you'll be familiar with the surroundings: post up your own thoughts, reactions, rumors (please please please source them), favorite breakfast cereals, whatever. Whether it's about the NHL in general or the Panthers in particular, feel free to share it.

The frenzy begins at 12 noon ET, so keep the coffee brewing. On to the goodies (and we'll provide streaming links when/if they pop up)...

- TSN's Top UFAs

- Panthers salary/roster info on General Fanager

- Panthers current notable unrestricted free agents:

  • F Scottie Upshall
  • F Tomas Kopecky
  • F Brad Boyes

More as it develops. A very happy Canada Day to our friends up north and a great Wednesday to all!
