from Frank Seravalli of TSN,
With the National Hockey League’s Feb. 26 trade deadline rapidly approaching, TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli plays TradeCentre Match Game: Proposing a number of potential team fits for players on the TSN Trade Bait Board.
Tampa Bay Lightning: GM Steve Yzerman covets a second pairing, right-shooting defenceman ahead of the deadline - which could be the only real hole in this Lightning lineup. There aren’t many right-shooting defencemen on the market and while Yzerman would prefer to plug in a player who can remain beyond this season, none have the ability or skillset of Green. It’s a good bet, that Tampa Bay’s first-rounder this season will be more like a second, if that makes parting with it any easier.
Toronto Maple Leafs: As Mike Babcock implored his team to turn the corner to try and convince brass to add at the deadline, a name like Green makes you wonder. With Toronto not really looking like a contender, paying a significant price for a rental like Green only makes sense if the plan is to re-sign him.
