Chris Peters | Hockey Writer for cbssports.com reports that the Lightning may buy out Ryan Malone.
Craig Custance ofESPN.com speculates on the question, Is Callahan part of the Lightning’s future?
In the end, Ryan Callahan said he still saw himself as a Ranger.
The Blueshirts’ former captain spoke to WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Wednesday afternoon and said he never thought about calling another city home until the trade with Tampa Bay for Martin St. Louis was actually made.
Reigning Art Ross Trophy winner and Canadian gold medal winner Martin St. Louis’ name has been in and out of play with the Rangers since Jan. 7, when he was bypassed by Team Canada (and Tampa Bay) general manager Steve Yzerman for his country’s Olympic roster, but no trade is pending that would bring the 38-year-old winger to New York, sources have told The Post.
In the summer of 2016, unless he extends his contract between now and then, Stamkos will be an unrestricted free agent. There are those who believe that playing for the Leafs would be a dream for Stamkos, although you often hear that about this player or that player.
Still, the attraction of going home helped the Leafs sign David Clarkson, whether you like that one or not.
Ben Bishop continued his red-hot play with 19 saves Friday night for his fourth shutout of the season as the Tampa Bay Lightning won 2-0 over the Calgary Flames.
With seven goals in 10 games this year, Cammalleri is off to a fantastic start after missing seven contests with a hand injury. A pending unrestricted free agent this summer, Cammalleri, at 31, doesn’t figure to stick around for the Flames’ rebuild, but will be a major bargaining chip if Calgary puts him in play. That means he won’t come cheap.
