The Panthers have lost four straight and GM Randy Sexton is getting tired of his team's poor performance, reports the Miami Herald.
"It was [expletive] brutal," Sexton told the paper of last night's 4-1 loss to Carolina. "We have too many guys who don't compete. You can't win in this game unless you're ready to show up and go to war every night. We don't have enough of them. . . . This is not the type of team we want. We're going to keep making changes until we get that. It takes time.
"It's like turning around the Titanic and not a rowboat."
While Sexton refuses to make a trade just for the sake of making one, he is looking at a variety of options.
It has been widely reported that forward Rostislav Olesz and defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Jordan Leopold are on the block.
"This isn't going to last," Sexton said. "If we can't make deals at the deadline, I can tell you the guys you see out there now, this will be the last time you see a bunch of them together as a team."
