Lightning Talk

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

NHL presidents and general managers spent the day huddling in meetings on the eve of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup final, covering off what one president described as a fairly thin agenda. Typically, one of the few team presidents to stop and chat and actually have something interesting to say was the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Oren Koules. Koules mentioned that the Lightning will fly the three top prospects for the NHL entry draft – John Tavares, Victor Hedman and Matt Duchene – to Tampa tomorrow, to talk to them as a group and see how they interact with one another in that setting.

“We’re going to take them to dinner; hang out with them a bit; show them around; and introduce them to the media,” said Koules. “We’re excited. Any one of those three kids will improve our team drastically. They’re all great kids and we’re excited to show them around Tampa.”

There is much speculation that Tampa will be active between now and the draft.
