Tampabaylightning.com is reporting the Lightning have re-signed defenseman Cory Sarich to a one-year, $1.9 million contract. The deal allows the Lightning and Sarich to avoid a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for July 31. Tampa Bay General Manager Jay Feaster stated in the official press release that Sarich left some money on the table in order to fit into the team's stretched financial structure. Sarich, 27, a 6-foot-3, 204-pound native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan played in all 82 games for the third consecutive season in 2005-06, recording a goal, 14 assists and 79 penalty minutes. In 2003-04 he was one of three defensemen to appear in all 23 Stanley Cup Playoff games for the Lightning.

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.
