Lightning Sale Is Close

via Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,

Meetings that went through Monday and into Tuesday morning at the NHL offices in New York apparently have brought Boston hedgefund manager Jeff Vinik to the brink of buying the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Details are sketchy, and it was unclear how much more work has to be done. But Lightning co-owner Oren Koules apparently attended the meetings and at least representatives for co-owner Len Barrie and Vinik.

The deal would include the team, the St. Pete Times Forum lease and 5-1/2 acres around the arena.
