  • The Florida Panthers inquired about the services of pending unrestricted free-agent forward Taylor Hall, according to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.
  • According to Patrick Johnston from the vancouver Journal, Panthers have offered Vincent Trocheck and a Boston area prospect for Hall.
  • The Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche are also in the running for the former Hart Trophy winner, LeBrun added.
  • Coyotes are still the frontrunners though.
  • Hall has tallied 25 points in 30 games for the New Jersey Devils this season, who have the second-worst record in the NHL.
  • The Panthers have just $517,494 in cap space, according to CapFriendly, so general manager Dale Tallon would have to get creative in order to accommodate Hall and his $6-million average annual value.
  • The Devils can retain up to 50% of Hall’s salary, and defenseman Mark Pysyk ($2.73M AAV) could be a candidate to head the other way.
  • Florida is in fifth place in the Atlantic Division with 35 points after a busy offseason that was geared toward making the club a Stanley Cup contender.
