Having spent most of last season on a line with Brad Richards, he was looking forward to a similar role this year, a perception which evidently was not shared by Lightning management. “I think the Lightning philosophy is to imitate the Anaheim Ducks and add more size to the line-up. It didn’t look like I figured in their plans,” he specified. “I expected to get an offer from Tampa Bay that would reflect what I had accomplished with the team, but it never came. I was disappointed. I’m not a fourth-line player,” added the former member of the Midget AAA Laval-Laurentides-Lanaudière Regents.
