That groan you just heard was the sound of Jussi Jokinen hitting the trading floor.

Default 4th line?

Yeah, where does he fit in? Will he center the 4th line between Tarns and R2? Dang they will probably trade Jussi and Oullett and have career 4th liners take the 3rd and 4th lines. I mean will they put Craig on the 3rd with Halpern when he comes back or have Gratts center the 3rd with Jussi and Oullett until Halpern comes back leaving Hall to center Roberts,Recchi, Tarns,Craig, and R2. Well are there any trade rumors out there? This is just wild or crazy in its own way. Well People do we take bets on who stays and who goes??? Or do run a contest on this??

Not sure what to say:

*We have too many bodies for the third-fourth line
*I guess you can't have too many bodies competing for third and fourth line slots.

It might also be an indication that Halpern will be out longer.

Cue 1,000 more jokes about all our forwards.

Can't say I'm disappointed, he had his ups & downs last year but hopefully a lot of that was due to his injuries. Once he got the stupid penalties out of his system I had no problems with his play.

You could start up a poll (or I could)

Don't hold your breathe on Halpern coming back....it's not looking good.

My opinion has been that this ownership wasn't necessarily signing all these other players to take the places of some on the previous roster, but to give the Lightning some bargaining chips and tradeable players to possibly strengthen their prospects, draft picks, goaltending or defense.

I would love to see a 3rd line of Ouellet-Gratton-Artyukhin.
