I almost feel like there is an echo in here.
Yesterday I posted a rundown on who stays and who goes and Damien Cristordero basically did the same. Ruslan Fedotenko is gone:
"I don't think I'm coming back here," Fedotenko said. "That's pretty obvious. Both parties agree to move on and close a chapter. Now I'm excited about what is going to happen next."
Evgeny Artyukhin has already been offered a new contract:
The Lightning has offered bruising forward Evgeny Artyukhin, who played this season in Russia, a $475,000 one-way contract.
Cory Sarich likely will prove too costly to resign. Rumors have it that the team is going to shed payroll and of course that may will effect returns of Lightning UFA's that have been listed as well as aging veterans (TIm Taylor, Vaclav Prospal -- you're on notice). Tim Taylor is expected to have surgery on his hip in August and be out for six months.
