Panthers Pull Offer for Belfour

Recommended Posts

Ed Belfour's search for a new home in the NHL continues.


The Florida Panthers have had a sudden change of heart and intend to put their faith in recently acquired goaltender Alex Auld.


The Panthers brought Belfour, a 41 year old veteran into Sunrise, Florida yesterday for medical testing and were expected to offer him a contract.


Instead Florida has rescinded its offer and have decided to go with what they have.


The Panthers originally offered Belfour a one-year deal, which he ignored while trying to prove his good health to the Detroit Red Wings.


When a deal didn't materialize, the Belfour camp revisited prior discussions in Florida leading to his arrival Tuesday with the understanding if he was medically cleared there was a good chance he would be signed.


Sources say the negotiation is now dead, leaving Belfour open on the market to investigate what other options he may have.
