Default Lightning acquire negotiating rights to Malone and Roberts (update: signed 6/30)

For a 4th next year. Becomes a 3rd if they sign Malone.

Link.

Guess this puts an end to the Marian Hossa to TB.

I understand Malone...



Maybe now Roberts and the XO sniper can be friends.




Perhaps Roberts was a throw-in?

Roberts signing here may be enough to make me no longer a fan of the team. I hate the guy that much. Yes, that much.

Wonder if Malone will listen as he has said repeatedly he wants to go to free agency. Hopefully we dont overpay.

Good.

Hossa is definitely the best player available this summer, no doubt. It was do-able financially, but pending RFA negotiations won't always be as easy and decidedly favorable to the budget as Ranger's was. Hossa, from a budget standpoint, would have been rewarding, but also a huge fiscal liability. If he only put up less than 70 points next season, there would be grumblings about Richards from the base.

Not sure what to make of Malone. I'm glad the Bolts are targeting that big body the top-6 has lacked, but I think healthy expectations should be that he pots 25 and hits the 50 point mark. It would seem the Lightning are eager to get a gritty but talented cop to protect Stamkos.

Expect Malone will be encouraged to go to battle when Stamkos is run (clean hit or not).

Sorry guys. I think I might be to blame for this by being the one to first suggest that Roberts might be a Melrose-Koules-Barrie target.
