Trade between Tampa/Atlanta

Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports:

Quote:
First the trade…
Lightning have traded Andy Delmore and Andre Deveaux to Atlanta in exchange for Stephen Baby and Kyle Wanvig. All four players will remain in the minors for now, Delmore and Deveaux to Chicago while Baby and Wanvig will be assigned to Springfield.

Of note, apparently Delmore may more than likely stay in the minors as Philadelphia is ready to swipe him off waivers if he is put on recall, so there is a good chance that Delmore won’t come back to bite the Lightning as a member of the Thrashers this season.

A Win, I Think

Wanvig, to me, is the best assett of the four. Delmore wasn't going to be recalled and wasn't going to re-sign with the Lightning. Baby is in many ways Dennis Packard's evil twin, so Baby for Deveaux may be a wash.

too little too late?

After seeing alot of Wanvig in the minors, he's a good pick up for Springy...but i'm affraid it could be too little too late.

Wanvig's Lightning Debut

I was quite impressed with the way Wanvig handled himself yesterday afternoon in the 5-1 win over the pens. He made a lot of good plays on the boards and also made some very nice passes which sadly got turned over quickly by his fellow fourth line mates Jones and Tarnasky. I believe that the coaching staff liked him as well, if you noticed he got some extra ice time with Ryan Craig's line after the bolts killed off a penalty.
