Report: Panthers looking to trade Reimer
The 31-year-old has two years remaining on his contract, which carries an average annual value of $3.4 million. Richards added that trading the goaltender is more likely than buying him out because a buyout would not benefit the team salary-wise.
Reimer struggled in his third season with the Panthers, posting a record of 13-12-5 with a .900 save percentage and a 3.09 goals-against average while splitting crease time with Roberto Luongo.
The Panthers have been tied to Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
