LBC's 2017 Florida Panthers & NHL UFA Day Open Thread

Dale Tallon’s got some holes to fill

Welcome to all as we embark on yet another summer offseason of free agent signings and a trade or two to keep the fan base juiced until September. As evidenced by what went down at the expansion draft, the Florida Panthers seemingly consider themselves set at defense, so reinstated general manager Dale Tallon will be looking for a few good wings to fill out his club's top nine.

If you've been with us for any of our past eight "Free Agent Frenzy" threads you'll be familiar with the surroundings: post up your own thoughts, reactions, any rumors that catch your eye (please source them), favorite breakfast spot, what have you. Whether it's about the NHL in general or the Cats in particular, feel free to share it.

The fireworks begin at 12 noon ET, so keep your eyes glued to the interweb so you don't miss anything.
