Florida Panthers: Should they Trade Mike Hoffman for Defensive Help?

If the previous four games haven’t been an indicator of struggling life than I don’t know what is. The offense has run dry while the defense continues to worsen after each passing game. There are times where the blue line holds up and produces a sound game, but those efforts have been rare in sight.

What’s been their main issue now for countless seasons has been their defense core, which wasn’t fully addressed this past offseason. Instead, a stop-gap was signed in Anton Stralman – who provides some sort of defensive presence, but not much in defensive stability given his age and injury history.
