Observation about Tampa/Florida
 
There has been alot of talk about both TB and the panthers making changes----living down in Florida and seeing what is going on(mostly with the PAnthers) I think these two teams are just in a pissing contest with each other over who can create the most trade rumours! I think both teams are all talk and no rock

thanks for that in depth analysis; i have now gained an entirely new perspective because of it.:shakehead

have you ever considered the following about FLA, TPB, or any other sports franchise, for that matter:

#1 those players on their roster with value they want to keep (holding on to valuable players; what a concept)

#2 those players they consider expendable become so because they have less value than those considered valuable (relative to the originating team), and another team isn't likely to give up valuable assets for someone else's crap.

and this all leads to....

why nhl deals are based primarily on $$$ and why deals do not happen every other day

And where exactly have all these rumors come from? I've never seen or heard rumors from the Tampa area press, they are all heresay and speculation from the various outlets in Canada, New York, Denver... Sure the Lightning have been saying what their needs have been for a couple of years now but they are not the ones to blame for totally blowing things way out of proportion. Don't fault the teams for other people trying to sell newpapers and advertising on half assed radio shows. Jay Feaster said last night on the Lightning's telecast that people write what they want, the team has no control over what the press reports and how do they come up with all this BS?
