Division three, taking a look at the Atlantic division with the trade deadline coming up.
TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING Best record in Hockey since day one, simply rolling over people if anything gaining steam.
NEEDS umm, maybe a depth defender, that is about it.
TRADE BAIT Possibly their first rounder, lots of young kid bottom six forwards with upside.
TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS 3 points ahead of the Bruins, 6 points ahead of the Canadiens, a lock for the postseason.
Very nice, Yave. I have come to expect nothing but to-the-point stuff from you.
As for the Lightning, I won't argue with your assessment, but I think a top nine winger this year would be a greater need, as opposed to last year, when the experienced defenseman was what they wanted.
Simmonds name keeps coming up, although now his name is linked to other teams such as the Preds and Bruins...and those teams may be willing to part with more pieces to obtain him.
