NHL Rumors: Tampa Bay Lightning and the Top 40 Trade Bait Board

SHARE
Mike Green would be a nice fit with the Tampa Bay Lighting, but at what cost?

On the Tampa Bay Lightning …

Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times: Defenseman Mike Green is among the players the Lightning are looking at.

It could cost a draft pick and a prospect, with the Red Wings likely looking defensive help.

“I look at every player, whether it’s a rental or has term on their contract, what does it cost?” Yzerman said. “Does it make sense for us?”

Green would be an upgrade on their right side and would bring playoff experience.

The Lightning could have a top-six of Hedman-Stralman, Sergachev-Girardi, and Coburn-Green.
