What Should the Florida Panthers Do With Their Free Agents?

Tomas Kopecky View image | gettyimages.com It’s not that I don’t like Kopecky, but at this point, I think he’s only a fourth line option for the Panthers.  I’d much rather see them use his roster spot to sign a veteran free agent or give a younger guy the chance to become a constant figure on the Panthers roster.
