Update 2:27pm ET: From Erik Erlendsson at the Tampa Tribune,

Got word that the team is getting there on a deal with Kolzig and the team is still in the mix for Rolston.

Update 2:49pm ET: Fan590 is saying the Kolzig deal is done. And Lightning Strikes has an update on Mike Smith:

As if the Lightning wasn’t busy enough today, now it appears the team will announce a contract extension, believed to be for two years, for goaltender Mike Smith. The goalie has one year left on his contract that pays $950,000 next season.
