Lined-Up Update: 2010 Off-Season Edition

Previous: 2009 Off Season | 2010 Off Season

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages... Your 2010 off-season guide to Lightning transactions! There are 35* players under contract for the 2010-11 season right now with the Tampa Bay Lightning (without counting bought-out players who will count against the cap).

*This is not an entirely accurate list as it does not include every signed player or prospect in the system, or Lightning property that remains unsigned... It also includes players who may or may not end up in the minors.
