Tampa Bay to trade St. Louis and a Canuck Tid bit

TheStar.com is reporting that “Marty St. Louis, rather than Vinny Lecavalier, may be the Tampa Bay Lightning star that could be on the move.” + HTR provides a tidbit on Alex Burrows.

It is reported that multiple teams have called the Lightning to acquire about the availability of St. Louis despite the fact that he has a no trade clause. HTR notes that what makes him especially attractive is the fact that his contract size is only 4 million per year who is very affordable for a star player.

It is noted that “the offensively challenged Blueshirts might be the team that would benefit most by St. Louis’ talents. New York has significant assets in prospects, including Brampton winger Evgeny Grachev.”

On another note rumors are floating around that the Canucks may look to deal Burrows before the deadline due to the fact that he is unrestricted at the end of this season. HTR believes that Burrows is not going anywhere and if anything is likely to resign with Vancouver, the team that gave him the start to his career when everyone else overlooked him.

    To Lightning: Rozsival, drury, and a prospect.

    To Rangers: St.Louis, Mezsaros.

    astoundingly bad….

    roszival for meszaros is brutal, as obviously anyone would rather keep the younger, better player and see what becomes of them

    drury for st.louis makes no sense either as the bolts are pretty much set at center with lecavalier, stamkos, prospal, halpern, and more…

    the lightning are also looking to dump salary if anything, so adding 12 million for the sake of losing 7 doesn't really help matters.

    everyone should also remember that st.louis has a cap hit of 5.25 regardless of his 4 million salary in the coming seasons.

    LMAO no one wants Rozival's or Drury's contract- and if they take them, they'll certainly not be giving valuable players back in return.
