What the HELL is Tampa doing to get these players? Drugs aren't even this efficient.

These guys realize that they're signing with the Lightning and not the Rays, right?

This doesn't solve their problem of needing a true #1 goalie. This is even dumber than the Devils getting 100 #6 d-men last year.

Scary team? They're signing free agents galore, but they're still going to be the sh!tty team they always were. Take it from the Rangers, spending dough doesn't equal chemistry.

Good move here for TB and Kolzog! TB is going to be one scary team this season. Kolzing will help teach the young goalie Mike Smith they got in the Richards trade last trade deadline. Good move if confirmed.

it's the power of the mullet....maybe they think that at the very least Melrose will help them get a TV contract if the whole playing thing doesn't work out....either that or they could get the latest inside info on gambling....

Exactly, this looks like a team who game plan is sign everyone with any rationale. Their D is a huge question mark, and they have goalie who is untested full-time and now a goalie who should have retired three years ago.

As for the Lightning.... Melrose will give them a good first year.. Playoffs.. whatever.. They are signing skill guys and no bruisers and guys who can't play defense...

They will score alot and get scored on alot..

2nd round exit.. and then they won't make the playoffs at all while Melrose is there.

Yeah, they must be trying to give their fans the impression that they are making a contender with all these moves.

Smith is a good goalie, but moving from a Defense first team like Dallas, to a "defense, when?" type of team like Tampa, may hurt him.
