The lockout that claimed half a season is over officially. Around 10pm the MOA was signed by both the NHL and the NHLPA. The schedule will be released shortly, and I will post it up as soon as it is announced. Trades will be able to be made two hours from the signing, so expect the league to be buzzing about midnight. I don’t see, however, the Tampa Bay Lightning doing anything drastic. The team seems to be set with defense and goal tenders, the problems of last season. They have men that are fully capable of doing great. It’s the issue of chemistry that will ultimately lead them into the playoffs.
