Blair Jones

After Tim Taylor gets healthy, does he go back to the Falcons, or stay with the Lightning? I like him so far, he seems pretty good. He seems decent in faceoffs, handles the puck nicely, and is a good skater.

Do we send someone (Richardson, ??) down to Springfield?

We'll find out. My guess is Blair goes back to the minors. I read that the team only has $60K of wiggle room under the cap. I don't think that they save any space if they send Richardson down due to his age (I could be wrong). I think he has a 1 year contract and that could make the difference of the cap savings.

The team is forced to make decisions based more on cap space than the talent/players that they might want on the ice each night. I would think that if they get DiMaio moved to the longterm IR, that would free up some of his $450K.

I don't see Taylor going to Springfield at all. Jones will get recalled to Springfield. He's only here for a taste, he's not ready for the whole meal.

Yes, I agree. The guys said, on one of the local broadcasts, that management hopes that Jones will learn a little and take it back to Springfield and know what he has to work on so he can try to make the team next year.

Jones sent back down to Springfield.

With the $478,000 Tampa Bay saved putting Rob DiMaio on long-term disability, and with Thursday's reassignment of center Blair Jones to AHL Springfield, the Lightning is $911,000 below the $44-million cap.
