The Tampa Situation

From Bob McKenzie at TSN,

The word on the street from rival general managers around the league is that Lightning GM Jay Feaster is in a situation where he’s being told by potential team owner Oren Koules to find out what he could get for veteran forward Brad Richards.  [...]

First, the team wants to have centre Vincent Lecavalier signed to a long-term contract this summer. They want him locked up and made him a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning for life.  Secondly, you know that winger Martin St. Louis is also in for the long haul because his contract gets more affordable with each passing year.

Feaster also wants to sign defenceman Dan Boyle to a long-term contract, but the team also wants to get a No. 1 goaltender somewhere down the line. It’s going to be expensive to do all of that.

more… with ideas about potential destinations for Richards. (*apparently $7.8 million salary isn’t as limiting as I would’ve thought…)
