You see, at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, Panarin will become an unrestricted free agent.
Though that does mean he could expand his contract with CBJ, he hasn’t necessarily expressed interest, which is bad news for us.
Panarin has a team-leading 45 points in 40 games so far this season. So, yeah, we want him on our side of the ice.
Will a lifetime of free food and booze tip the scales enough to keep Panarin in Cbus?
At least his agent, Dan Milstein, seems interested!
