The Florida Panthers have sent Ryan Whitney to the minors.
Whitney has no points in seven games with Florida this season. There was a time when he was one of the better offensive defenseman in the NHL, but we think his days of being relevant in standard fantasy leagues are over.

The Florida Panthers recalled defenseman Ryan Whitney from the AHL's San Antonio Rampage for Sunday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.
He's been largely ineffective in the NHL so far, going without a point in six NHL games this year (also a -7 rating). This might be his last chance to prove he can belong with the league, although it may be too late. Ed Jovanovski could be out of the lineup.

Ryan Whitney has been placed on waivers by the Florida Panthers.
The Florida Panthers fired head coach Kevin Dineen Friday morning and waiving Whitney is probably the first of many player moves the struggling team engages in. Whitney had no points in six games with the Panthers. We wouldn't be shocked if he got claimed, but we certainly wouldn't bet on it either.

Ryan Whitney dressed Tuesday against his former Edmonton teammates.
He has played in just six games with the Panthers this season and has sat often as a healthy scratch. "Whit came out of St. Louis and didn't find himself in the lineup here for two or three weeks," coach Kevin Dineen said. "He worked his way back into it last game and I thought he gave us a pretty solid effort. He's a valuable option." He has no points and a minus-7 rating this year.

Much like Friday, the Florida Panthers decided to make Ryan Whitney a healthy scratch against the Los Angeles Kings.
The Kings are familiar with Whitney from his days with the Anaheim Ducks. His -5 rating shouldn't be that surprising, but failing to score a single point in four games is a little surprising. He's generated four PIM and eight SOG for Florida.

Ryan Whitney was a healthy scratch Friday night.
He did not play in the Panthers' 6-3 rout of the Penguins Friday night. Matt Gilroy took his place in the lineup. Given how well the Cats played, don't be surprised if the Whintey sits out Sunday's game against the Kings as well.

Ryan Whitney had his first practiced with the Panthers on Tuesday.
Whitney wasn't able to secure a contract over the summer and didn't make the St. Louis Blues after participating in their training camp on a tryout basis. Still, he has a lot of offensive upside, so the Panthers decided to take a chance on him at the cost of a one-year/$900k contract. He's worth keeping a close eye on.
