Tampa Bay Lightning Restricted Free Agents tended Qualifying Offers

The Tampa Bay Lightning's list of RFA's tendered qualifying offers is out.

Captain Vinny Lecavalier sticking with Tampa Bay Lightning, GM Brian Lawton says

"Though Lecavalier's agent Kent Hughes said Saturday he had not spoken to Lawton, he welcomed the sentiment he has been trying to get out of Tampa Bay for a while." So my question is this: if Lawton truly has no intentions of trading Vinny, then why didn't he bother giving private assurances of that fact to Vinny and his agent when they asked for them? My guess - and it is only a guess - is that it's because Lawton is unable to find any takers for Lecavalier and his contract extension at this time, so he can say something like that and probably mean it. That doesn't mean that Vinny won't be traded if another team is interested after all, though.

Kirill Gotovets is Tampa Bay's Seventh Round selection

Only the 2nd D-man taken by the Lightning in this years draft, Gotovets has a commitment to Cornell, the Brandon Wheat Kings own his rights in the WHL and the Minsk Dynamo of the KHL own his rights... What to do, what to do...? Smallish puck moving defenseman with finesse...

Named best goaltender in the World Junior Championships this year, Janus was passed over last year in the draft.

Goaltender Michael Zandor drafted by Tampa Bay -- Fifth Round, 148th Overall

Considered raw talent, Oshawa's netminder Zandor adds depth to the Lightning goalie chart, but will be watched and re-assessed at a later time.

Alex Hutchings selected 93rd Overall by Tampa Bay Lightning

OK, I'm an ignorant American who does not get much exposure to Junior Hockey and even I know Hutchings by name. This is a shock. 14th most unrrated prospect int eh draft as ranked by Red Line Scouting, Hutchings is a Center/RW and played for Barrie (no relation... I think) of the Ontario Hockey League last season. Click the title to find out more about Hutchings.

This guy is going to be a stud. Watched a bunch of Wings games live this season and if he can be anything like Lidstrom, it will be very good news for the Lightning for years to come.
