Big Time Rumor: Anton But to Tampa Bay

Russianprospects.com [url=http://www.russianprospects.com/public/index.php]is speculating that Anton But may be close to signing a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.[/url] The rumor comes on the heels of But's release from his long-time club Yarolslavl where he won two championships and was a perennial Superleague All-Star. A potential deal might require the Lightning to move a player off their 50-man roster to accomodate But. Because he is not under contract at present he would be free of any potential entanglements due to the lack of an IIHF transfer agreement with Russia.

My 2 Cents

If it's true he's willing to come to NA, I'd rather have But than Alexeev.

My $.02

Sounds good to me (not an Alexeev fan). I would love to see Anton but of course that would mean someone else is on the way out of the organization with the 50-man limit (an unsigned RFA possibly or a trade; Burke please!).
