As per TSN, Dan Ellis has signed with the Lightning for a 2 year contract at $ 1.5 million per. I like this signing and am thankful that we didn't overpay for Nabokov. Ellis is more of a 1A 1B goaltender than a true #1 but can get his shot to be the #1 if Mike Smith doesn't play well again this year. Plus he tweets.

St. Louis signed to 4 year extension http://lightninghockeyblog.com/2010-articles/july/st-louis-signed-to-4-year-extension.html http://lightninghockeyblog.com/2010-articles/july/st-louis-signed-to-4-year-extension.html nhlawards2010_17.jpg

As per the official Lightning twitter (yes that's how I'm getting my news today), the Lightning have re-signed St. Louis to a 4 year extension. It's $22.5 million over 4 years as per TSN, that's $5.625 cap hit per year

Only thing to note is that St. Louis is over 35 as of the signing of this contract.

Bubye Mezzy.....you never really reached your potential in Tampa and were very overpaid ($4 million cap hit). As per TSN, Andrej Meszaros to the Philadelphia Flyers for a second round draft pick in 2012.
