Panthers Made 'Serious' Offers for Boychuk, Leddy

The Winnipeg Jets aren't the only team to leak that they were pursuing one of the two defensemen acquired by the New York Islanders on Saturday.

Dale Tallon, general manager of the Florida Panthers, said he was in "serious negotiations" for both Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy, but the Islanders beat them to both, as the pieces needed "just didn't make sense" to the Panthers. That report comes from George Richards of the Miami Herald, who was covering the Panthers preseason game against the Lightning on the night of the trades.
