Some posts in this thread are just ridiculous.
Purcell a 4th liner really???? He is a top line/ top6 player with great playmaking ability. He is non existent in the physical game, but he plays a fine game offensivly and is on pace for over 60 points in a full season (again).
Ohlund will never play again, he is far away from even skating, so no way he comes back. He is on LTIR and doesn't count against the cap, so Tampa doesn't care about his contract.
Lecavalier should be bought out for his game, but he won't be because he is the face of this franchise and it would be horrible for the organization and the fans if he is bought out.
Lindback is fine, no goalie would look good behind this D, and he let in a softie per game at the beginning of the season, while making 3-4 WOW saves per game as well. And as of late, he is playing very good and he will be fine next year.
And no way a are giving up Purcell and Thompson for Schneider. Purcell for Schneider would be okay valuewise, but Tampa has no need for Schneider with Lindback, Vasilevski (most likely in the AHL next year) and Janus as one of the top KHL goalies, that wants to come back this summer or the summer of 2014.
Same with the LA proposal, you want a top line winger, a middle round pick and a great backup for an (unproven) backup with starter potential, a 4th line center and a third pairing D (only looking on the minutes he plays). No thanks.
The only thing Tampa needs is a coaching overhaul this summer. No of the assistant/ goalie coaches should get a new contract and maybe even fire Boucher and bring up Cooper.
