Bolts attempt to honor Dave Andreychuk appeared less than the exhuberant and respectful night he deserved. Didnt expect to see his jersey put up in the rafters, but did expect more pizzazz during the presentation, maybe a few x-NHLer actually there to speak about him and wanted to hear more from Dave. Honoring seemed more superficial than substance to me. Gag gifts were a joke and devalued the moment. Dave deserved alot more than he got !
Bolts latest -find a way to lose - fall guy is Holmqvist. Gets delay of game penalty called on himself and seconds later watches winning goal pass thru 5-whole. PP continues to suck - hard to watch !
Thru 3 games....
Big 3 combined goals = 0 (1 in SO)
Big 3 combined +/- = -4
Big 3 combined salary = $20 mil
Any questions ?
TSN first power ranking just posted today with Detroit at the top - here is their SE Division power pics with Tampa at 4th in division !
* Carolina - 9th
* Atlanta - 17th
* Florida - 18th
* Tampa - 24th
* Wash - 28th
Guess they are unimpressed with our off-season moves.
As expected, Lightning placed Sean Burke on waivers per TSN report published today - hopefully he will get picked up and some of his $1.6 mil salary can be off-loaded.
