As briefly discussed in the GDT there's a rumor of Yannick Weber and/or Chris Campoli joining the Lightning soon:

Google translated:
A few hours of dual Canadian-Lightning, many rumors send the young defenseman Yannick Weber in the locker room with the opposite cast of Guy Boucher.

Chris Campoli could replace or accompany this possible transaction. His name is also circulating a rumor sending it to San Jose in exchange for draft picks.

For now, no player has been named the Lightning, but certainly Steve Yzerman is looking for a defender able to move immediately into the big league.

Florida relies on training only eight defenders with a professional contract, two (Hedman and Ohlund) now find themselves on the sidelines.

Weber, 23, has 82 games of experience in the Canadiens uniform since the beginning of his career, he was a third-round pick of the team in 2007.

The right-handed defenseman, a native of Morges, Switzerland, has 11 points, including three goals in 33 games this season. He will earn $ 850 000 until the end of his contract, which expires in the summer of 2013.

The Helvetian watched the last game of his from the bridge Tuesday night and should do the same Thursday night.

Signed just days before the start of the regular season, Campoli, 27, has participated in only seven games in the tri-color uniform, scoring one goal.

In the first game of the season in Toronto, he had injured a hamstring muscle and was therefore forced to miss nearly two months of activity.

Campoli was also removed from training after a difficult encounter (-3) against the Jets on December 22. It involves a contract of $ 1.75 million for the 2011 season.
