TB hasn't made a move with their multiple defensemen? They waived three forwards and release another forward from a tryout but didn't make a move with their D.

So, what's the next step? Well, perhaps the team tries to add a forward either through trade or off the waiver wire. GM Brian Lawton has maintained pretty consistently he is inclined to keep eight defensemen. If that is the case, it means he could keep up to 13 forwards. Lawton also did nothing to dissuade the notion that the decisions to be made on defense include the usual suspects: Matt Lashoff, Mike Lundin, Matt Smaby, David Hale and Lukas Krajicek.

As we have said, Lashoff and Lundin are on two-way contracts, and all five would need waivers to get to the minors. Complicating things is that Krajicek and Hale actually have had pretty solid training camps and Smaby, Lundin and Lashoff, all young and with upside, could get claimed off waivers.
