Karri Ramo to KHL, and the Tampa Bay Lightning suddenly lack stability in goal

Tampa Bay touted the fact Mike Smith is coming back from Post concussion syndrom and that they were fully confident that their damaged goalie would be 100 percent for next season. With that and ownership instability, they just lost their #2 netminder.

NHL stars, Stanley Cup winners to don figure skates for TV competition

On a more light-hearted note, here's a reality show for you. And former Lightning player Stephane Richer is taking part in it. I wonder if we'll be able to see it here in the US somehow. This could be very funny.

Report: Goaltender Karri Ramo signs with Avangard Omsk

As if the Lightning don't have enough problems today... There are reports that goalie Karri Ramo has jumped to the KHL. This creates a huge mess in Net if Mike Smith is not fully recovered from his Post Concussion Syndrome come next season (and no one ever fully recovers from PCS).

Draft Party? Not in Tampa Bay [UPDATED]

Not every NHL team holds a draft-day event, but the Tampa Bay Lightning have done it several times in the past. It seems rather curious that nothing is planned this year...

Is Vinny staying or going?

Are people simply distracted by the draft, or is there already a deal in place? Or, is this on the back burner until after the draft is over? Right now it's hard to say, but we should all have a better idea about that in about a week.

Greg Logan predicts Duchene to Islanders 1st overall

So Greg Logan, who has changed horses several times about the top pick in the draft, is now predicting Matt Duchene as the Islanders #1 pick in Friday's NHL draft. What an unlikely scenario. I wonder what the fallout in the draft would be from that? < end snark >
