The Lightning hang up right away.

I think anyone that has seen Rielly and Drouin play would take Drouin by a decent sized. He just has more potential and will be a great player in the NHL. He'll be the perfect winger for Stamkos. Rielly will be good. Drouin will be great.

I'm sure the Lightning would love to get rid of Lecavalier's contract. But not at the expense of the third overall pick. Bozak's rights are probably worth a conditional seventh round pick in 2015. He's a very meh player and rights for players aren't generally worth anything. The second round pick isn't really doing anything to tip the scale in Tampa's favour.

I can see why Leaf fans are saying no. They're attached to Rielly and want to see him develop under them. But if this trade went down, they would be loving it. Easily.
