Lightning to Bring Back Hamrlik Staff


The Tampa Tribune reports trade talks between the Lightning and New York Islanders for Roman Hamrlik have reached an impasse.

It’s believed that Lightning were offering forwards Fredrik Modin, Sheldon Keefe and a draft pick for Hamrlik while Islanders general manager Mike Milbury has reportedly asked for Alex Svitov and/or Nikita Alexeev.

A separate report in the St. Petersburg Times suggests the Lightning have made preliminary contact with Greg de Vries.

de Vries is said to be looking for a four year deal worth $3.5-million a season. He earned just over $1.3-million with Colorado last year.
