The Florida Panthers have traded forward Brandon Pirri to the Anaheim Ducks for a sixth-round pick.
Pirri is currently out with an ankle injury that could sideline him for a couple more weeks.

I expected a bigger return, but think he's still injured.

Why even trade him at that point? The Panthers are going into the playoffs, and maybe even going deep, so why wouldn't they want him for that run? I'm assuming he'd at least be back by the 1st round or even earlier.

Makes no sense to trade someone who has been good for them for a pretty much worthless 6th round pick.

That's it? I guess not too many people think he's a regular NHL'er anymore.

Frankly I don't think the Panthers wanted to pay Pirri what he would get in an arb case.

That's why.

Pirri must just play his best games against the Rangers, because he always looks like a good player. Seems like a steal for ANA
