The Tampa Bay Lightning seems to be contemplating buying out one or two of its current players, as the buyout period is set to begin Wednesday at 11pm ET.

Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier and left wing Ryan Malone both could be bought out to create much needed salary cap space for next season and beyond.

Kent Hughes, the agent for both players, told the Tampa Bay Times that he's yet to hear from the Lightning, but knows buyouts are possible.

"We understand it's something they might be contemplating," Hughes said. "It would be natural to do so."
If the Rangers insist on signing a powerforward whose body is going to be mush by the end of their contract, hold on to the 2nd round pick and sign Malone over Clowe.
