ESPN's Pierre LeBrun has added some more details, mentioning that Michael Grabner is also heading to Florida with Bernier. Prospect Victor Oreskovich is heading to Vancouver. LeBrun says it's all based on the condition that the player the Canucks want is on the board at 25.

That's the 25th pick to the Panthers, who are stockpiling draft picks like canned foods before a storm. They currently hold three first rounds picks: the 3rd, 15th and now the 25th. That's on top of three second round picks, two fourth round picks, and more.
