Fantasy Impact: The Florida Panthers have signed Tomas Fleischmann to a whopping four-year deal worth $18 million. They have also signed Ed Jovanovski, Marcel Goc, Scottie Upshall, Tomas Kopecky, Jose Theodore and they have traded for Kris Versteeg and Brian Campbell in the past week. Not to mention nabbing Jonathan Huberdeau and Rocco Grimaldi at the draft.
The Panthers get: In Fleischmann, an underrated scoring-line forward who can play any position up front. But he has had an issue with his blood clotting, that is taken care of provided he continues his medication. A very underrated player, but also a big risk. In Versteeg they get an energetic second-line winger who is great for the dressing room.
Fantasy Players Impacted: This is the best scenario for Flash. His salary will see him on the first line, which places him with Stephen Weiss. If healthy, he will have career numbers. This should also push Weiss up over the 60-point mark again. This deal knocks Scottie Upshall to the second line, and Kopecky to the third line. This may also hurt Jack Skille and Evgeni Dadonov
