Lamoriello will be 84 when his contract expires. It's a joke. 100m / 17yrs.
Given the hit such a contract would bring, it'll push the Devils very close to the cap, if not over (depending on who specifically makes the team) Meaning someone's got to go.
I like Travis Zajac, although he doesn't make any sense for TB to acquire. Dainius Zubrus is under contract for 3 more years with a 3.4m cap hit. He looks like the likely candidate for trade. I could totally see Lawton trading for him. 6-5 and perennial underachiever. Good thing we've got Yzerman now.
Rolston is making a bit much for what he brings (5m, 2yrs remain, +35, NTC)
However, I don't see any players that the Lightning could really benefit from having. Maybe as some more dominoes fall.
Wow, I understand the need to trade him but I'm still surprised.....absolute warrior in the playoffs and when healthy, still at the top of his game, the Bolt's got a really talented professional NHL player.
