I'm not getting my hopes up since eklund is an idiot but hopefully that's the hold up in announcing the Vrbata deal.

Well, now Fedoruk turns out to be a 30-goal scorer and Hale a #1-2 D...

Here's what I said on the trade board. Great job by Lawton. It's a win no matter what.

It's a win for Tampa either way.

We save at least 1 million cash (Is Hale 2-way), and worst case, add two guys for Norfolk depth, while getting rid of Vrbata, who would've been paid 3m to sit in Norfolk.

Hale, no chance he makes this team, but Fedoruk, might make the bottom 6, possibly a nice checking forward.

Can't really argue with it imo for Tampa.

"We are pleased to make a trade today that makes good sense for both teams," Lawton said upon making the announcement. "Lightning fans will be pleased to see we have added some size and toughness up front with Todd, while David helps us continue to add depth to our blue line. At the same time, Radim moves back to Phoenix where he has experienced some success in the past."

As it turns out, the Lightning will save a nice chunk of change. It got rid of Vrbata's $6 million obligation and took back Fedoruk, who has two years, $2.175 million left, and Hale, owed $725,000 this season before becoming a free agent. That's a savings of $3.1 million over two years.
50% salary reduction over 2 years. i wouldn't be surprised for the next domino to fall to be a 4th line guy and borderline defender (perhaps this 4th line guy and borderline defender) being shipped out to convert payroll into a modest draft pick

Yep.

Win for both sides.

Only 1 more signing to go and this offseason can turn from trepidation filled concern to a resounding slam dunk of success.

Good thought, I'm *hoping* that we can somehow parlay that into a 2nd rounder, since we don't have one next season, but if we were to package say... Craig, Kraijeck, and got a 3rd, I'd be satisfied... although I'd try to throw in a 5th to get a 2nd instead.

Talk about a win-win.

Vrbata gets his 6 million while playing in the NHL.
Phoenix gets a player who has only had success at Phoenix at a bargain price.
Lightning clears 3.1 million that can go to Tanguay if we choose and two depth veterans for Norfolk.

As far as I care, waive Fedoruk to save against the cap. Nobody else is gonna take him and pay him $2m+ for scoring 3 goals and getting into 25 fights...
