Tanguay and Tampa Bay on the threshold of becoming reality

We've all been waiting, we've been waiting a while.  We've dealt with the silence and the hearsay, we've dealt with the speculation both positive and negative..

Still, we waited...

And it seems, now, what we've been waiting for seems to be on the threshold of happening.

Friday evening, Jon Jordan reported that the wait was coming to an end - though conflicting reports were out there.  Stay tuned, and all that jazz...

And while the Minnesota WIld continue to wait patiently for Alex Tanguay to decide if he will join the Wild or not, reports from RDS (French sports network of Quebec) have stated that Tanguay has made his decision -- and it's Tampa Bay.

here could be a new French Connection in the works as RDS is reporting that the Tampa Bay Lightning have agreed to terms of a contract with Alex Tanguay pending a physical. Terms of the deal were not released.

The two-sides have reportedly been in negotiation since July, however it was not until two-weeks ago when Tanguay was contacted by Lightning stars Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis that he decided to join the Bolts.

The paperwork is not all done, a physical is still needed, but this is what we've been waiting for.
