JoeBoltsFan -- "Brian Lawton Speaks"

AM Radio wunderblog JoeBoltsFan has the audio of Brian Lawton's appearance on Toronto based AM Radio speaking about the draft and the prospect of trading a certain team captain. The declaration that the Lightning are in an excellent position to get offers for the #2 pick or Lecavalier isn't the double-speak that one might read into the statement.

"I haven't set a date, really. But I have some time now to get away from it and get away from the rink a little bit and not have to think about anything; just try to get better. ... I want to be in there so bad, it's probably made things worse. My impatience gets the better of me. You just have to give it time."
