Maybe the most likely player (in fantasy trade world) to be headed to South Florida is Alex Galchenyuk. Galchenyuk’s name has been dangled in trade rumors since the summer and somehow still remains a member of the Canadiens. At the moment, Galchenyuk is struggling through this season and the Panthers might be able to nab the American at a lower price. Montreal seems like they want to get rid of him and he would be a perfect fit for Florida.
Galchenyuk is in the first year of a three-year deal, so the Panthers would be guaranteed his services through the 2019-20 season. Galchenyuk might make the most sense for the Panthers out of these five players. He’s already signed to a three-year deal and he could possibly be acquired at a lower price. Again, Galchenyuk would be a wonderful addition to the Panthers lineup and would find great success with Vincent Trocheck on the second line.
