Lightning D Kubina has been asked to provide a list of teams to whom he would accept trade.
added 12:16pm, from the Tampa Bay Lightning,
Kubina was not on the ice for the team’s skate in preparation for Thursday night’s matchup with the San Jose Sharks in order to “protect the team’s interests,” according to Yzerman.
Yzerman also said that Kubina, who has a limited trade clause in his contract, was asked to submit a list of teams he would be interested in moving to, although Yzerman reaffirmed that a deal was not imminent at this point.
“We’re making our decisions on a player-by-player basis,” Yzerman said. “We see a potential opportunity to improve our club. In regards to Pavel, and as far as any other players or any other opportunity, there’s the broader strategy of wanting to be a better team in the future, so we’ll look at any opportunity to become that.”
