George Richards, the Florida Panthers beat writer for the Miami Herald, joined the Big O Show on 560 WQAM to discuss the team’s current losing streak, what to expect in the future both on the ice and during the upcoming NHL Trade Deadline.

“One of the big reasons [they’ve lost four straight] is Aaron Ekblad”

“They hope that [Ekblad] can come back Friday. If he is on the ice tomorrow for practice, I would say he’s in Friday”

“I would not be surprised if [Gudbranson] is the next captain of the Panthers”

“The Panthers are going to be buyers, the Panthers are going to make a deal. It’s just ‘what’s it going to be?’”
