Tuesdays with Dani: Cut for a Cure

Vincent Lecavalier and members of the Lightning are participating once again in Cut for a Cure, shaving their heads on March 30th. The money raised will go towards the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and the Vincent Lecavalier Pediatric Cancer & Blood Disorders Center at All Children’s Hospital. Lightning players such as Marc-Andre Bergeron, Teddy Purcell, Brett Connolly, Tom Pyatt and Bruno Gervais will take part in this year's cut, and Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon will also be participating (as well as several dozen Tampa Bay business leaders)For more info and to see who is participating head over here to their website to check it out.

  • Mike Commodore says that he can still play hockey, "Can I do everything I once could? Maybe not. But I'm not old. I feel like I still have something left in the tank." (Tampa Bay Times)
  • There's something very awkward when you read Gary Shelton write "Ride the kid. Ride him hard. Ride him as if he were the last horse in the Pony Express" in reference to Dustin Tokarski. Maybe that's just me (Tampa Bay Times)
  • The trade deadline sometimes has benefits for players that remain with the team, such as Brett Connolly who has looked better in the past few weeks than the four minutes of ice time he was getting a few months ago (The Hockey Writers)
